Rewilding for me means going local. I am especially fond of the notion to connect more to everything that surround me. Forests, Rivers, old Industrial Sites, meadows and people. It is extremely satisfying for me to (re-) visit these places. I am doing this nearly daily by bike or - with my dog on foot. I feel like I am sharing a bit of history with them, every time I revisit. It makes me feel I am growing roots. Not just because I go there, but because I try to leave these places and the path to them better. Which means things like picking up litter, talking to people I meet along the way, or helping out here and there. It's time consuming, but growing roots takes time. It not as time consuming as one might think, if you form a daily routine. Being close means being there. At the location and in full presence. Evil is non-connection.

Thanks for these prompts Thomas. I’ve intuitively been on this journey for some time now and it’s really helpful to reflect back on steps / stages and consider what else might be important to think about. I think I’ll use these as my Spring Equinox prompts for this year :)

Wow - this idea of 12 steps to rewilding can have such an impact. It takes resolve but is possible and impactful!
