Holding Space for Healing

We spoke with the incredible Jacquie Moses, who supports others with seeing their true potential and innate resilience.

When Jacquie learned about the understanding that the Rewilding metaphor is based on, she completely shifted the way she works with clients. Instead of trying to “fix” them, she saw the importance of seeing that her clients are completely whole and well just as they are. This creates a transformative healing space for the people she works with, and for herself as well, as she found that she didn’t need fixing either.

For several years she delivered mental…


Navigating Low Moods

Just back from vacation, we wanted to share how to more easily navigate low moods and how seeing them as transient and impersonal can make relationships so much easier and more graceful.

Angus has a perfect example of this from our vacation in Hawaii when he was feeling very caught up and upset with our daughters, he stepped outside, and by looking up at the night sky and seeing the moon, he was distracted just enough from his low mood that his mind settled naturally. …


Angus, our daughters, and I set off late morning to go snorkeling. Angus had been researching what to do while visiting Oahu by watching YouTube videos about it, and one of the bloggers recommended snorkeling at China Walls. This is a popular swimming spot and quite easy to get in and out of the ocean when the swell is flat, but that wasn’t how it was on the day we went.

We heard later that the large swell experienced in Hawaii during our visit was from currents all the way from Tahiti.

China Walls is a flat rock formation that…


You know how it feels when you have a new thought. You have a sudden flash of insight that hasn’t occurred to you before. You see something from a fresh perspective or a new angle. This happened to me the other day. I was relaxing and started to think about the power of intention and what it is to set an intention. As I was reflecting on this, it suddenly occurred to me, “What if I don’t set an intention to align with my true nature and just relax?”

I know this probably doesn’t sound ground-breaking to anyone else. It…


We thought we would offer you a recap of season one of Rewilding Love before taking a summer break and take the opportunity to respond to a reviewer who requested we speak more tangibly about the understanding that informs our work.

Angus provides a beautiful and comprehensive description of the “Three Principles”, one of the names given to the non-dual spiritual teaching revealed to Sydney Banks.

Our rewilding metaphor is informed by Syd’s teachings, and we have been mentored by many of his original students. Rohini speaks to how this understanding helps relationships and why our work always begins with…

I have been working long hours lately while we were looking for a new Rewilder team member. I am grateful to announce that we now found her, Kim Ewell. She will be helping with all things related to the Rewilding Community and also supporting us with project management.

But during the time of my overworking, I noticed my body speaking to me about my lack of self-care. My back was sore. I was not sleeping well. My emotions were giving me feedback as well. I was less patient and more reactive. The signals were…


Healing and Truth Through the Voice

This post originally appeared on therewilders.org/podcast.

Nessi Gomes and Lino Hermesh, romantic and business partners, created Vocal Odyssey, a workshop designed to help people meet the spirit of their voice. After recently participating in their workshop, Rohini shares with listeners about her experience and invites Nessi and Lino to talk about the healing power of their work.

From a young age, Nessi discovered the ability to heal and navigate her emotions by exploring sound. She now shares the therapeutic value of sonic expression along with her professional performances. Initially, Lino sought to manage Nessi’s musical career, but following some skepticism…


My fear is of being discovered as not being good enough. My fear is of being seen and judged as unworthy.

Unworthy! The pounding of that word into my brain. It feels stamped in like an intricate typesetting — indelibly etched. This is the story of my life. Self-help tells me I should do something about my feelings of unworthiness. I had someone leave a comment on one of my posts recently and they were incredulous that I was okay with having moments of crazy. They insisted that I do something about them so I could experience change.

I am actually learning to enjoy my crazy and know that it is from the vulnerability of my craziness that beauty emerges. The…


We are designed to awaken in consciousness. There is no need to force or push. All of the striving I used to do to try and improve myself was because I didn’t see the health in my natural design. I became fixated on improving my psychology by focusing on my trauma rather than on returning to my natural state. This just kept my nervous system activated and took me further away from where I wanted to be.

I was given a first-hand reminder of how healing works recently when we adopted our kitten from the local shelter. When we brought…


Jennifer Miller-Allgeier beautifully ties together the importance of affirming identities across all gender and sexual spectrums with her own rewilding journey and how it has impacted her marriage and her work. She guides parents on how to speak to their children who have come out or are questioning their assigned gender or sexuality.

In her work as a Pediatric Nurse Practitioner, Jenn works predominantly with LGBTQ youth and she helps us understand some of the best ways to affirm and support members of the LGBTQ community, and how to use more inclusive language in our work. …
