Once put to use, they wake up and start working again. You become wilder in your mind and in your heart. Once you know the tricks, the wild world begins to appear before you. For anyone who wants to get closer to the nature all around them and bring it back into focus, this is the perfect read.

Short, simple and refreshingly practical, Living Simply offers 21 Earth Warrior practices to help us live more consciously and to cope with the ever increasing pace of modern life. Bob Hillary shares the lessons he learned living off the grid, exploring his ‘wild edges’ and practicing a slower, more attuned way of life. How can we live more simply, learn to appreciate what we have and root our way of being in the Earth we have inherited? By living simply and becoming an Earth Warrior. As life keeps urging us to go faster, many of us are moving in the opposite direction... we are looking for SLOWNESS, for stillness, to live more natural, less complex lives. Bob Hillary spent a year living off grid, this experience taught him how to live simply. It meant; downscaling, re-wilding, un-teching and finding and doing things that are free.

By living this way you will learn how to live in a more joyful, positive, simple and meaningfully way. Earth Warriors give, share and care.

Reconnect with your wild essence as you awaken your innate bond with the natural world “Rewilding is a return to our essential nature. It is an attempt to reclaim something of what we were before we used words like ‘civilized’ to define ourselves.” —Micah Mortali In his long-awaited book Rewilding, Kripalu director Micah Mortali brings together yoga, mindfulness, wilderness training, and ancestral skills to create a unique guide for reigniting your primal energy—your undomesticated true self—and deepening your connection with the living earth. For hundreds of thousands of years, humans lived intimately with the earth. We were in the wild and of the wild. Today, we live mostly urban lives—and our vital wildness has gone dormant. As a result, we’re more isolated, unhealthy, anxious, and depressed than ever, and our planet has suffered alongside us. With Rewilding, Mortali invites us to shed the effects of over-civilization and explore an inner wisdom that is primal, ancient, and profound. Whether you live in the middle of a city or alongside the woods, the insights and practices on these pages will bring you home to your wild, wise, and alive self. Highlights include: Practice-rich content—mindfulness exercises, guided meditations, yoga and pranayama, inward sensing, forest bathing, and much more The “life-force deficit”—explore how our separation from nature affects us physiologically and spiritually Ancestral skills—such as tracking, foraging, building fires, and finding shelter Develop a sense of calm, clarity, connection, and confidence in both your daily life and the great outdoors What you can learn from nature’s teachers—lessons from mountains, rivers, trees, and our animal kin Rewild in the wild—guidelines around safety, preparedness, appropriate gear, and packing lists A mindful rewilding flow—put everything together in an immersive, step-by-step rewilding experience Awaken your authentic spiritual connection with the natural world as you come home to your true self Understand the relationship between our health and the health of our planet—and how we can begin to heal both Part celebration of the natural world, part spiritual memoir, and part how-to guide, Rewilding is a must-read for anyone who wants to embrace their wild nature and essential place in the living earth.

Unleashing Your Inner Goddess is about understanding and acknowledging that her divinity exists. Your Inner Goddess is the purest form of you. She is everything love and never concerns herself with trivial things. She’s been around for a LONG time, and knows the ways of the Universe. She also knows why you’re here! She is your Divine spark. We often make the mistake of thinking our history begins with our birth in this life and that our memories extend only from the moment of our birth. Our physical body is just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to who we are and what makes us, us. We have memories and knowledge from our life before this one. Your Inner Goddess is your soul, your true essence, who always wants the best for you. She’s the part of you who truly remembers who you were before you came to this world. She’s free and wild and really doesn’t care about other people’s opinions. She’s the part of you who’s at peace with what you’ve been through and where you’re headed. It’s “You” who set the course of your life and the things you want to accomplish and learn, before you even came to this earth. It’s “You” whispering guidance to yourself about your highest path and purpose. Your Inner Goddess invariably involves how you can best serve others while being true to yourself. This part of You helps you to keep on track with your life’s purpose and in touch with your passions and joy. Your Inner Goddess has brought with her your feminine energy. She’s that part of your soul who is fully connected with the Divine Feminine. Your Inner Goddess manifests as your higher self, your soul, your spirit, your intuition, the essence of who you truly are. You might frequently hear the phrase “finding yourself ”, but finding yourself is really returning to yourself and to your Inner Goddess. Tapping into this divine feminine energy allows you to live life guided by your true essence and be in perfect flow with the magic of the universe. Every woman has an Inner Goddess, whether you realize it or not. Connecting with your Inner Goddess will automatically make you feel happier, radiant, healthier, and sexier! Your higher vibration will make you naturally glow from the inside out. You don’t need to contact your Higher Self as an entity outside of yourself, she is You! Wisdom and memories are inside of you, if you will access them. Pay attention to your desires and passions. Your truest, heartfelt desires are feedback from your Inner Goddess about what you want to do now. Living from your Inner Goddess means not sacrificing or ignoring those desires, it also means listening to those desires on a daily basis. You know you are stepping into your Goddess self and awakening your true eternal nature when you become more concerned about you inner journey than your outward one.
