Wild Yoga: A Practice of Initiation


Tune into The Original Loretta Brown Show, Thursday, Mar. 23 at 8 a.m. (repeats Monday at 6 a.m.) as welcomes Rebecca Wildbear!

Rebecca Wildbear is the author of Wild Yoga: A Practice of Initiation, Veneration & Advocacy for the Earth. She is also the creator of a yoga practice called Wild Yoga, which empowers individuals to tune in to the mysteries that live within the earth community, dreams, and their own wild nature so they may live a life of creative service. She has been leading Wild Yoga programs since 2007 and also guides nature and soul programs through Animas Valley Institute.

Wild Yoga is an embodied practice that empowers individuals to tune in to the mysteries that live within dreams, the earth community, and their own wild nature so they may live a life of creative service.

In the upcoming new book Wild Yoga: A Practice of Initiation, Veneration & Advocacy for the Earth (New World Library, February 14, 2023), author and Wild Yoga creator Rebecca Wildbear empowers readers to create a personal practice that stretches their awareness and awakens their connection to the place we all most deeply belong to: the Earth.

Through simple movements and creative concepts that will inspire beginner and seasoned yogis alike, Wild Yoga is an invitation to live from the soul. Part 1 encourages readers to return to their instinctual nature, welcome ferocity, receive the love of trees, and listen to dreams. Part 2 invites them to open up to the mystery of what they love and grieve, descend into darkness, and be sung back to life by the living planet. In part 3, Rebecca guides readers to listen to their muse, dream for the world, and protect wild places.  Each chapter concludes with a yoga pose that supports the theme of the chapter with illustrations by Sarah E. Brooks to help readers visualize the poses.

By honestly sharing her personal experiences, as well as the experience of many clients, Rebecca shows readers how to:

·      meet their bodies and emotions where they are, including grief, trauma, and vulnerability

·      tune in to the natural world around them — whether backyard, seashore, or mountain — or an imagined dream place

·      commune with the Earth’s body through their own body and thus to all the peoples and places around them

“May these teachings, stories, and practices offer a path to open your heart to what is most sacred. May they ground you in love and strength,” writes Rebecca. “May they restore your relationship with the Earth so that you and your dreams,mystery and muse may live in cocreative reciprocity with life on the planet.”

Loretta Brown, Host

Loretta Brown, owner of Reiki Oasis, has been practicing and teaching Reiki Energy Medicine, sound healing, intuitive Guidance, past life regression, meditation and psychic development since 1995. Born as a sensitive, Loretta always felt at home among the concepts of angels, spirits, fairies, energies, vibration, sound, music, devas, goddesses and God.

Now, she is dedicated to helping everyone discover their own gifts, resonate from the very center of their Being and live the joy-filled life they were meant to live. Loretta has traveled the world extensively, teaching and performing internationally, has studied with great spiritual teachers, and has spent years chanting, searching for truths, visiting sacred sites and learning the great mysteries.
