Hello there 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. Was….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 dishing on what is fishin within me on any given day, is truly spectacular!
Each day I unplug my ears and open my heart a little more to the wilderness that is always here, no matter where we are. It is waiting for us to remember her.
The process of Re-Membering, of putting back together that which we have forgotten, but thankfully, have never truly lost.
As you may imagine, this on-going inner and outer adventure has resulted in me taking a stand as a catalyst and a fairly unapologetic advocate for the power of listening to, and following the guidance of our inner body based intelligence. To deep dive into the stories beneath our skin and wake up to the conversations coursing through rivers of our nerves to the needles of the trees…our body and the earth are talking, one to the other, I say from experience, it is kick-ass transformational life when we learn how to not only listen, but to hear.
It is a true honour that my life regularly invites me to be with, and guide others through life, death & rebirth cycles in my classes, courses, speeches and retreats. I feel so grateful that you are here. I feel alive when I have the opportunity to celebrate the gritty to the glorious aspects of health and healing as we navigate transition, trauma and triumph in key moments of change within our lives. I seek to share spaces where you feel truly at home being exactly who you are…wherever you are, in all your raw, real and unapologetic splendour.
