Rewild Yourself Virtual Retreat 

A complete internal reset to re-connect with your inner nature


The top human-challenges of the 21st century include unexpected crises, burned-out people, the rise of technology and information overload. We clearly need new skills to thrive: human-skills or what is sometimes also called life-skills. Inspirational experiences with nature-based content can build a strong foundation of human-skills such as resilience, focus, collaboration, creative problem solving and leading others. Human-skills drive your vitality and employability. Re-connect deeply with nature to heal your body and restore your mind. The techniques and insights can help creating space and inner-peace, as well as dealing with distractions, allowing you to grow from within. Only on new paths you can grow. The people around you, your projects, your organization can only grow if you grow. Re-connect with your inner wisdom and wholeness, from where all new inspirations, insights and creative solutions can grow. As John Muir said, ‘Between every two pines is a doorway to a new world.’

Being deeply connected to (our inner) nature has a positive impact on our mental and physical well-being and therefore contributes to our resilience and vitality.

Nature heals the body

Nature connection practices reduce the feelings of anger, fear, and stress and increase well-being. The sense of connection to the whole not only makes you feel better emotionally, it activates the parasympathetic nervous system which is responsible for the stimulation of "rest-and-digest" state that is deeply healing for body, mind and emotions in the ecosystem of our bodies. Some of the physiological benefits include a general sense of wellbeing, reduced blood pressure, slowing down your heart rate, release muscle tension, and lower the production of stress hormones.

Nature restores the mind

People who connect with nature experience an improvement of their mood; changing from depressed, stressed, and anxious to more calm, balanced and grateful. Nature connection is associated with a positive mood, psychological wellbeing, meaningfulness, purpose and vitality. Nature connection restores your attention span and increases the ability to focus. This provides a break for your overactive mind, recharging your mental batteries, refreshing you for new tasks and mission.

Nature inspires feelings of connection

People who have deep nature connection have stronger feelings of unity with their communities whether these are colleagues, clients, friends or family. They are more concerned with helping and supporting each other, and have stronger feelings of belonging. Nature connection will activate the parts of your brain associated with empathy and love. Nature inspires feelings of connection to each other and the larger world of human and non-human beings.
