"The Wisdom of Wildness: Healing the Trauma of Domestication" by Ren Hurst

"A guide to rewilding your heart, so you can undomesticate your life

• Explores 13 principles of unconditional love for addressing the trauma of domestication, healing relationships, and restoring deep connection to the inner guidance of your wild soul
• Explains the nature of trauma from the perspective of emotional development
• Provides experiential practices for the cultivation of authentic relationships that are free of exploitation and codependency

HOW CAN WE RECLAIM our wild soul and approach life with authenticity and emotional maturity? Looking deeply into the nature of domestication and humanity’s relationship to other animals, Ren Hurst finds our own domestication—and our resultant disconnection from nature—to be the root trauma for much of the human experience, which we seem to perpetuate by domesticating others. Ren offers another path: she reverse-engineered the conditioning process that leads to domestication and discovered a practical road map for deprogramming and undomesticating yourself in order to heal, restore connection, and reclaim the innate wisdom of wildness within.

Sharing enlightening moments from her journey with a half-wild husky, Denali, The Wisdom of Wildness shows how only when emotional awareness and authentic leadership link in with your own wild parts can an authentic relationship between human and animal—or between oneself and another person—be possible.

In her transformative body of work, Sanctuary13, Ren unveils 13 principles of unconditional love for deprogramming yourself, healing the trauma of domestication, and reviving deep connection to inner guidance, your wild soul, and, ultimately, freedom. Experiential practices help you cultivate authentic, undomesticated relationships free of exploitation and codependency, whether with human or animal companions. Instinct, intuition, and inspiration are just waiting to be reclaimed on this paradigm-shifting path toward healing and true soul connection."
