Claire Dunn: Rewilding the Urban Soul

Session Info:

Session Info:

Burnt out by her high pressure job as an environmental campaigner, Claire Dunn left her partner and her comfortable life behind to embark on a year-long wilderness survival program.

Why? How? And what kept her going through insect attacks, leaking shelters, wild animals, fear of the dark, and excruciating blisters from matchless fire-making?

Despite the physical challenges, in the end it was the wilds of her inner landscape that proved the toughest terrain of all. When Claire finally cracked life in the bush wide open,  she discovered a wild heart to warm the coldest night.

Now back in the city, in this heart warming and uplifting presentation, Claire discusses the lessons of the wild – how we can all learn to find and  follow our own path; to redefine success and open our senses to what the world is offering us, and in turn what we can offer the world.

Topics Covered:

  • The call to adventure; personal quest and inspiration
  • Self-belief and resilience
  • Confronting the shadows within
  • Goals versus intentions
  • Letting go; the journey being the destination
  • Following a path less travelled
  • The healing power of nature
  • The art of wandering
  • Back in the city: the road home
  • Rewilding the urban soul
