How to work with nature for greater wellbeing (with Sam Gravestock)

Sam Gravestock aka 'Man of Tanith' online isn't a big teacher, author or guide. He is just a regular husband, father and Care Manager who happens to have a very deep connection, passion for and reverence of nature.

Although started in childhood, Sam's connection with nature really deepened after a nervous breakdown. He found that nature played a huge role in his healing and has been his way of dealing with stress and staying resilient ever since.

What I love about Sam is that he is a passionate advocate about the healing power of nature, yet there is nothing pretentious about him. He has a profound and deep connection with the Earth, and yet he is completely humble.

For those of us who are just 'regular folks' there is a lot to learn from this very wise man. In this conversation, we talk about:

  • Why a connection with nature makes Sam a better husband and father
  • The role of nature in mental health recovery and well being
  • The link between practical bushcraft, intuition and spirituality
  • How nature has a healing effect on us on multiple levels
  • Why "only the wilderness is pure truth"
  • How to work with nature to reset and destress
  • Why real bushcraft is more about a relationship with nature than conquering and surviving nature
  • How to use your intuition to connect with the natural world
  • The role of a rite of passage in personal growth
  • How to deepen your relationship with nature
  • Where to learn more about bushcraft and nature connection

About the Podcast

The Sacred Wild Podcast
Exploring nature, spirituality, personal growth and activism.
As the world gets busier, more urban and technology driven, more and more people are feeling cut off from the natural world, community, other people...and themselves. All while climate change and ecological degradation continue.

On the Sacred Wild Podcast, we explore our relationship with the 'more than Human' world, with the ecosystem and ultimately with ourselves and our own personal growth.

We speak with activists, spiritual teachers, creatives, indigenous people and wellbeing experts to see how can come back into balance and ultimately become more healthy, whole and happy.
