Why choose nature-partnered pastoral care?
Spiritual rewilding, akin to ecological rewilding, is about (re)building relationships in and with creation. This is a journey that invites us into a grounded and transcendent way of being, without the artifice of dogma or doctrine. It is free from judgment and full of knowing trusting the world through our hearts and bodies in addition to our minds. And it is about letting the world know us in return.
Rewilding invites us out of the spirutally domesticated boxes we may have experienced on our life’s journey. Rewilding trusts us to grow without the manufatured theologies that may have limited our wild and precious thriving.
Just as a forest will not thrive if it is a tightly managed mono-crop destined for lumber, our spiritual lives cannot thrive if our hearts, minds and bodies are domesticated by dogma and oppressive ideologies that limit our freedom and separate us from our true self, others and the ground of our being.
Encounters with Wholeness
Wildwood pastoral care is about encounters with wholeness, a way of remembering ourselves and our kinship with every living being in the earth. Encounters with wholeness spring from feeling connected to ourselves, to others, to place and for many, a sense of something more or beyond this realm.
Our wholeness is comprised of elements from our past, present and hoped-for future. And wholeness is reciprocal and participatory. As we cultivate our own sense of wholeness, we are also allowing the world around us to encounter its own wholeness.
We do not arrive, once and for all at a fixed destination of wholeness, but rather we return to the path of experience over and over, exploring daily what wholeness looks like for us as individuals.
Encounters with wholeness tend to relate to three types of relationships:
• Our relationship with ourself and with others.
• Our relationship with the More-Than-Human World.
• Our relationship with whatever we understand is is beyond ourself, others and the More-Than-Human World.
