About Us

Wild Living in a Modern World

Our mission is to help improve the health of the planet by inspiring people all over the world to reconnect with Nature. Alissa first created this community because of a clawing at her soul. She was looking for a community of Nature-lovers who understood her weirdness and supported her wildness, but couldn’t find it in her physical reality. The internet was the solution and now this new wild community grows daily. We put the “WE” in We Are Wildness by sharing our community member’s stories, experiences, art and websites. Yes, we think it’s ironic to mix rewilding and technology (the internet) but the balance seems to work and we love connecting with people from around the world. We Are Wildness is growing, sprouting new branches and leaves and is flowering with amazing people and ideas. We welcome you here and hope you participate in your own unique way. WAW is a place for people to learn and connect. We strive to bring you high quality information in the following topics: Wild BodyWild Mind | Wild SpiritWild HomeWild GearWanderlustWildlife

The Humans Behind We Are Wildness

Meet the Team

Alissa Wild

Co-Visionary and Creative Director

Alissa founded We Are Wildness in 2011 to find and connect with like-minded Nature-loving humans. She created the project to show others the importance of connecting with nature and being in touch with the wildness within us. Alissa is an introvert and has always had a deep connection to animals. She worked as an Animal Rescue Aid at a Wildlife Rehabilitation Center for wild birds and other wildlife native to the area. She has worked with Bald Eagles, Owls, Ravens, Blue Herons, orphaned Fawns, Beavers, and Racoons, just to name a few. Alissa feels most at home in the forests of Vancouver Island, where she once spent several days and nights alone on her first vision quest.  She loves books and has an epic collection…she never leaves home without at least one in her bag. She enjoys natural movement like swimming, dancing, biking, hiking, and doing aerial silks. Alissa cares deeply about women’s rights, animal rights and the rights of the Earth. She shares her riverside cabin in the forest with her two furry companions, her husky, Brite, and her partner, Kevin.

Kevin Park

Co-Visionary and Communications

Kevin is the Co-Visionary of We Are Wildness and has always been wild at heart. He was born and raised in the lush West Coast rainforest of Canada, surrounded by mountains and ocean as his playground and learning environment. He has always drawn great inspiration from his wild surroundings and looks deep into nature for the answers to many of his questions, and to learn more about life and himself. He is a seeker of both ancient wisdom and the latest discoveries. He is a lover of all things natural. He feels most at home surrounded by trees with his bare feet on the Earth. Kevin loves learning and trying new things and is always reading, writing, camping, swimming, foraging for food, running, dancing, riding his bike, meditating, slacklining, gardening, natural building, yoga, and connecting with people among many other things, but most of all he loves experiencing all that life has to offer with his partner Alissa and their dog Brite. Kevin is passionate about sharing the benefits of natural health and fitness and living a more nature connected life. He’s a Certified Personal Trainer and Founder of The Wild Body Program and rewildyourbody.com

How to Support the Return of the Monarch Butterfly

How to Support the Return of the Monarch Butterfly

How can something that smells so lovely, have beautiful blossoms, and be the only source of food for the monarch butterfly, be called a weed? Over the past few years we have decided to let the some of our property re-wild itself, no lawn cutting, no weeding, no planting. That area is now covered with…

The Roar: Do you feel it?

The Roar: Do you feel it?

Surprise and adventure should be in the job description of anybody who works with students in the outdoors.  I have my fair share of personal wilderness anecdotes and perhaps too large a catalogue of adventures-gone-wrong, but the times I have shared with students in the outdoors have provided me with many of my most memorable…

How do you make contact with the Wild?

We put in at Fall Lake just outside the little town of Ely in the late afternoon. The forecast posted at the ranger station had not looked promising, and clouds were looming, heavy with rain, when we loaded the canoe and pushed off the shore. A faint breath of mist surrounded us as we began…

Everywhere else the economic and social systems of men have priority.”  —Douglas Peacock, Grizzly Years This 3rd of September the Wilderness Act turns 50. It’s an unusual and controversial piece of legislation, a kind of turning…

Is Nature Connection the Next Big Human Trend?

Cover Photo by Jocelyn Catterson  Original article “Nature Connection Will Be the Next Big Human Trend” on HuffingtonPostUK   Something is amiss and we can’t quite put our finger on what. It seems that the further our society progresses, the more disenfranchised we feel. The hyper-connectivity of social media (which has its own potential) leaves us…
