Hi lovely, and welcome.
I am Anastasia Watson, the business mama of ReWilding Within, the process and practice of creating peaceful, passionate alliances between our urban lives, wild untamed hearts and the pulsing presence of the planet beneath our feet. I am a healer, a poet, a speaker, and soul guide.
I am often a peace broker between the soft spoken desires of your body, and the ever present opinions of your murmuring mind.
Woven into tapestry of my world personal and professional life has been an organic and growing celebration of “everyday courage”that is at the heart of leading radically resilient lives. It is the root system of the ReWilding process and practice. It was born from an ache within me to answer the question can I…can we, truly activate, and return to living with a sense of everyday simple ceremony, playful presence, deep listening, and full spectrum, luscious living, even in the centre of the city?
Have ever considered the same?
I know for me, that question, and the ever evolving, constantly expanding “answers” I come to, have resulted in feeling kinder, more connected, accepting and loving, to myself and others. I notice that I am increasingly and passionately on my own damn side when it comes to how I choose to walk in the world…awake, healthy and strong. You see, my return to health was once considered medically, an “impossible dream”.
But hey, a peaceful alliance between all that is urban, and all that is untamed, once felt the same to me.
So clearly anything is possible!
I am now regularly called upon to share my self-health resurrection, and trauma recovery stories, which are all deeply rooted in the practices and processes of ReWilding. in case you are wondering this has looked a lot like saying Yes! when I meant yes, and No! when I meant no, loving when it was hard, and leaving when it was easier to stay. It meant learning how to have new and healthy boundaries & loving my body -As. It. Is….full stop.
All of which is much harder to do, than it is to write.
That I get to share my discoveries, discussions and just dishin on what is fishin within me on any given day, is honestly my favourite thing to do. Even when "whats fishin" is deep sea diving, emotional fu*kery, cause lets be honest here - loving what IS, not our plans, our priorities or preferences is what is on offer, #everydamnday.
That hashtag has a wide following of practices that make for great photos - and maybe one of them is pivotal to how you build your world, and maybe its not. As someone who resists being told what to do since birth, I personally find that I sometimes undermine daily practices simply because I hate being told what to do - even if I"M THE ONE WHO MADE THE RULE.
Full transparency, I am a double Aquarius/Sagittarius - for those of you who don't know or care about astrology, just know it means my whole being is devoted to the creation of freedom and choice for all beings - people, plants, pets - you name it, if its breathing, i want it to have the privilege of BEING who and what it is. This is my devoted practice, searching out the essence and energetic of free flowing expression in the world. I feel deviance and contradiction between actions and beliefs with the same intensity most experience burning their hand on glowing red oven innards while pulling out a casserole.
Its hot, it hurts...and in my case it comes with creative cursing. And like a burn, some fade away, and others leave lasting reminders. I'll be honest, in a world where vulnerability to promoted in books but banned in public boardrooms, contradiction is everywhere. And prior to naming and claiming my super skills, and putting them to work for the good of those seeking alignment, cohesion and soul to skin integration, I drove past partners, friends and DEFINITELY my parents bat shit nutty.
Born with "big blue beautiful eyes" that people commented on since birth, the truth of what I saw and felt has never been hidden from anyone that could see my face. Even silent, I was seen....or more accurately, people saw me seeing them.
For some, this felt like coming home, until it didn't...or until what I was seeing wasn't welcomed or wanted by them. I frequently didn't understand why they needed space - I wanted to love even the messiest of men, mama's and moments shared among family. I wanted to celebrate the potential of TRUE belonging and not merely the act of fitting in.
I wanted people to be able to KNOW, knit straight into their bones, that they could be their weird, messy, less than perfect self and it could not diminish shine that was always centred in their souls. Like a shit covered diamond...their choices, behaviours, perceptions of themselves might stink, they almost definitely will require some action to clean up the mess, but their inner "diamond" will still always be a diamond.
So that is what I offer, a place where I promise to use my super power in a conscious container chosen by folx seeking freedom from their own inner contradictions and misalignments. I offer a space where you have the freedom to choose the rightness of your inner compass. To call bullshit on beliefs that were never yours but you have carried willingly - until today!
I offer a space for you to claim your messy and muddled magic. A place where you can reclaim the blueprint of your right to belonging, and stop the harried hustle to fit in.
In short, I am a container of deep space where you can move, shift and burn any barriers to your freedom and truly let yourself fly!
Welcome brave soul, I am so honoured and excited to stand with you in the fires of your remembering. I cannot wait to watch you Phoenix fully...oh the legacy you will live, instead of leave! It is magic in the making!!
