Wisdom of the Body

Mar 2, 2023

Heather Grzych interviews author Rebecca Wildbear, on her book, Wild Yoga: A Practice of Initiation, Veneration & Advocacy for the Earth. Rebecca was a cancer survivor at a young age, and she explains why listening to the body is very similar to listening to Nature. She discusses why we need to embody the mysteries our dreams invite, and how to let dreams actually guide your life. Many different practices are mentioned, including specific yoga postures, journaling and a solo fast, in which the individual sleeps outdoors overnight while fasting. 

In this episode, Heather and Rebecca discuss:

  • Why nature can feel scary sometimes

  • Camping and backpacking alone

  • Earth grief

  • Receiving the love of trees
  • Animistic perception

  • Why climate change and environmental issues make people not want to have kids

  • Why giving birth and becoming a mother is possibly the wildest yoga

  • The importance of getting off your computer and going outside for a walk

  • Why fasting and camping can both raise vata dosha

  • Fasting indoors vs outdoors

  • How having cancer impacts the way you appreciate nature
