We’re passionate about helping people reconnect with Nature
We created an educational hub grounded in Nature to help people empower themselves with the knowledge they need to live a wilder, healthier, happier, more connected life. We Are Wildness U is an online learning center for those who want to learn with Nature, about Nature and from Nature.
Inspiration & Awareness
We share inspirational images, blog posts, videos, and other resources through social media and email to inspire our community members to get outdoors, get wild and reconnect with Nature. We strive to create an awesome close-knit community of wild humans who care about and protect the natural world.
Find Your Inner Wildness
An everyday practice of unplugging, going outside and connecting with the more-than-human world is the most effective way of coping with the fast-paced technocentric world we live in. It’s how we manage the anxiety, depression, and feelings of overwhelm that can creep in. We don’t have all the answers, but together we can help you find a path that leads you to your wild self.
Nature Deficit Disorder
Modern life is busy and filled with to-do lists that keep us distracted and cut off from the natural world. So often we do not realize that regular, everyday interaction with nature is missing from our lives. When we lack a connection to Nature, we suffer.
Studies show that spending time in the natural world has positive health benefits; including lowered stress, increased creativity, feelings of peace and an enhanced sense of wonder.

What I found in We Are Wildness was a group that I could share with...a world-wide venue of wild and kind souls. After I retired I wanted to tell my peace story. I wanted to bring that peace and value to others. We are Wildness offers a way. Try this, it just might sooth that restless itch that only a connection with nature can scratch.Tom MooreRetired
You guys honestly started it all. My heart feels happy and so extremely appreciative of you guys and what you are doing for everyone, as I'm positive I am not the only person you've helped this tremendously! I can't imagine how my life would be without taking interest in your challenge. There's no way I could possibly repay you - but I thank you so so much for everything, and I wanted to make it known to you how much you've helped me unknowingly.Melanie F.
I want to thank you for creating the Rewild Your Life event and all you are doing with the We Are Wildness - I enjoyed every aspect of this - the pictures & posts, the feeling of community & belonging - most of the people I am close to in my world do not have the same feeling toward nature that I do, so it has been so nice to see others who feel that connection. You are doing good work.Ellen Humphrey-Allen
I did the 30 Day Challenge; sharing and conversing with rewilders from around the world. We became a community of friends, open, funny and caring. Increasingly disaffected with working in an office, the collective joy in nature's gifts and the wild spurred me to act on an idea that had been busy in my head for sometime; I retrained to lead forest school so I can encourage little ones to feel that nature is their home in the hope that they will grow up already wilded. I will continue to enjoy the wild world brought closer to me via social media through WAW.Helen Shaders
