Being Wild means having the courage to bring the gift of all of who you are to all of what you do. That means showing up whole, creative, free, engaged, connected, and bold. What have we learned about the power and effect of nature in our body, mind and spirit, and how does this impact overall health and wellbeing in how we lead our own lives?
