Rewilding the Human Family: Staying Interconnected in Modern Times
Now more than ever, we need ancestral wisdom and ancient skills with a deep connection ton nature to balance our technological lifestyles, and stir up a new way of being human. Our guest Chris Morasky, one of the top Stone Age skills experts in the US and co-founder of the Wisdom Keepers School, works to inspire contemporary humans to create regenerative lifestyles and build communities engaging in bushcraft, learning from natural systems, and practicing cultural activism.
We live in unprecedented times, both tumultuous and auspicious. Technological advancements continue emerging at a breakneck pace with AI, 5G, biotech and crypto transforming how we live and interact. Technology and modernity, while exceedingly convenient, comes with a certain expense to what distinguishes us as “human.” Technology is impacting our health, sanity and solace, our need for privacy and community, and the world’s ecosystems at large, for better or worse.
Emerging from the lockdowns of 2020, humanity would do well to contemplate our times and the direction of our species and planet. What makes for a meaningful, purposeful life? How do we define wealth? How might we contribute to a common good? We must act now to address the numerous challenges humanity now faces including: climate change, the Sixth Great Extinction, food and water security, and the continuance of life itself. This requires inquiry into our shared humanity. What makes us human? Are we losing or deepening that distinction? How might we teach our children to live harmonious, interconnected lives amidst it all?
Chris Morasky has lived most of the past 30+ years in the wilderness and small communities of British Columbia, Idaho and Utah. He has homesteaded along the Snake River in the Pacific Northwest, the most remote mail route in the lower 48 states. He has led Stone Age expeditions and worked in the most dangerous job in the world (single-stem logging). Chris’ workshops focus on awakening instincts, ancient skills and deep nature connection as doorways to understand more fully who we are, why we’re here and where we could be headed.
