Welcome!

Solstice Wilderness Crossing

Do you find yourself at a crossroads in your life? Do you feel called to make a change? Need space in your life to find a new direction? Or to celebrate and mark a transition? Join me for our Solstice Wilderness Crossing and guided rite of passage ceremony in the beautiful fells of the Lake District, 19-23 June 2024. I’ve written a Substack post on why I feel ceremonies and retreats of this nature are so important to our souls, you can read it here. And for more information about what the Crossing entails, just click on the button below or get in touch at hello (at) monicawilde.com

It’s a small group, so do make sure you book early. Sign up to my newsletter to get all the latest course information!

The threshold crossing was a profoundly simple yet deeply meaningful way to enter into a dialogue with wild nature. The guides held the space beautifully, supporting our individual intentions as a group and co-creating a meaningful community of complete strangers.

The Wildbiome™️ Project

The Wildbiome Project™️ involved members of the Association of Foragers participating in a citizen science research study. They ate only wild food for either 3 months or 1 month. They were monitored for changes in body composition, blood tests for health markers. Their gut microbiome was also tested against a reference control of people eating normal shop-bought food. What we want to know is what would happen to our bodies if we had to go back to eating only wild food?

If anyone would like to take part in The Wildbiome™️ Project 2025 please get in touch and ask to be put on The Wildbiome™️ Project 2025 list – to be contacted when there’s more certainty (aka funding!). Keep up to date with it all by signing up to my newsletter and following me on TwitterFacebook • InstagramPinterest and if you can, please donate to the Wildbiome™️ Project so we can fund the continuing research.

The Wilderness Cure is out in paperback!
