Rewilding & Relational Conservationism
We are the visions of our ancestors—our feet step in realms that their dreams well tread and our tired hands and aching hearts work in their tear-watered but now-sleeping soils.
Our mission is to (re)learn what it means to be human, an honorable heir, in a world on the edge—one bustling with new visions, new dreams, and new artifices of attention.
We are a cross-industry collaborative of educators, writers, relational ecologists, and more, led by author, storyteller, and hunter-husbandman, Daniel Firth Griffith, that seeks the reawakening of relationship through becoming, through the rewilding of both ourselves and our lands, and honoring the place-based and wisdom-holding ancestral ways that have come before us.

Postcard #5, Skyborne Magicians
"Today, their moss gilded and ivy veiled uneven undulations are like aged and tired, but proud, men whose spines slump ever so slightly downward, downward, downward to their grave."
