Wildness- the pre requisite for sanity…4 ways to call back your wild woman.

Underneath it all, we are wild and we know it. —Reggie Ray, Buddhist scholar Yes we are, why on earth do we try and fool ourselves into thinking that we were made to sit on chairs looking at screens for hours at a time? Why do we deprive ourselves from our primal knowing and the wild one within? And why are we surprised at the consequences of this? Of ignoring our natural needs and impulses?

I recently spent time with a man who was happy to wrestle on the ground, roll down hills and laugh like children, It was pure medicine, there is nothing like finding a man who never acts like you are ‘too much’. I got so high on ‘rough and tumble’ that sweet feelings of happiness and freedom started ping ponging through my being. I felt free, a happy little girl, a playful animal. It felt like home. Rough and tumble is best a shared experience, wrestling, rolling, wriggling, squealing, any playful illogical behavior that is FUN falls under this category, I cannot recommend it enough….find a lover, sister or brother...
