This Sustainable Life: Untethered


13. Rewild Yourself with Environmental Entrepreneur Michelle Parry - Part 1

Ep. 13

Michelle Parry is an environmental enthusiast, entrepreneur and founder of The Rewilding in Morecambe Bay, Lancashire which hosts retreats and events inspired by nature and human connection. She is also a dairy farmer and passionate about sustainable farming practices. After living in big cities for many years and becoming increasingly stressed and overwhelmed, she made the decision to move back to her countryside roots to reconnect to nature and pursue a more intentional, holistic lifestyle in line with her values. She rewilded herself and is on a mission to help you do the same.

Episode highlights:

  • Why we are more like trees than we think
  • How technology distracts us from what is important
  • The joy of dogs
  • The problem of "zoom fatigue"
  • The joy of learning new skills
  • Why it's important to be curious

  • An abundance of practical tips and ideas to help you rewild yourself
  • Michelle's top wild books: The Hidden Life of Trees by Peter Wohlleben and Wilding by Isabella Tree
  • And of course, Michelle sets her personal environmental challenge in line with her values
