This week’s show is with someone we’re delighted to introduce you to… Craig Richardson. Craig joins many today who are engaged in asking the question, “What does it mean to be fully and authentically human?” As an advocate of the human rewilding movement he is interested in applying this question to all areas of life, including parenting, nutrition, education, lifestyle, and spirituality. He works both professionally and informally to help individuals to move towards authentic humanity and break free from the domestication model. He and his wife have unschooled their son since birth, and as a family they are interested in camping, hiking, natural family living, fire spinning, organic cooking, ancestral skills, and being as Earth-friendly as possible.
In this show we spoke talk about the power that comes from understanding and aligning ourselves with the cycles of the natural world. We explored different kinds of cycles, such as seasonal, lunar and solar, and how they parallel our lives in many ways, revealing truths about life stages, the huge benefits of having a deeper connection to those cycles, and how we can get started.
I’d love to know what YOU think about this week’s show. Let’s carry on the conversation… please leave a comment below.
What you’ll learn from this episode:
- Noticing the way natural cycles flow can help guide us through cycles in our bodies and lives, making them more familiar and therefore less scary. We can trust that all phases in our life are part of a bigger cycle at play.
- If we look to different traditions across the world and throughout history, we see that they have similar festivals and philosophies about cycles because they’re universally relevant to us.
- Find a place in nature to visit every day, even if just a short time, to connect to the earth and the cycles.
- A great way to start is to follow the phases of the moon – there are various apps you can get to help you create this habit.
