The Golden Rule Revolution With Lucas Mack
From Being an Extreme Prepper to Walking a Sovereign Path with Jess Caldwell 

July 1 2021 | With a 10-year immersion into living off the grid and as an astute "prepper", Jess Caldwell flipped the script on fear-centric living through some interesting areas of study that included over 500 hours of yoga & meditation training, nutritional therapy school as well as a deep-dive into exploring the human experience more closely by working at a funeral home to better understand our fear of mortality.

She became an educator for holistic and meaningful end-of-life practices including traditional home funerals to remove the word "industry" from our death experience as well as green burial that supports conservation and renewal of life. With a paradigm shift that cracked the code towards living a more healthy, expansive and meaningful life, she began this next chapter, which she lovingly refers to as my rewilding.

My Views Are My Own Podcast with Doug McDonald

 

May 12, 2021 | Meet Jess Caldwell, professional rewilder and founder of Wildkind Academy. With a unique history that includes a 10-year immersion into living life off the grid and as an astute “prepper”, Jess flipped the script on fear-centric living through some impressive areas of study that included a deep dive into exploring death more closely by working in cemetery sales at a large funeral home, cemetery & crematory. Jess became an educator for holistic and meaningful end-of-life practices including traditional home funerals to remove the word "industry" from our death experience, and green burial that supports conservation and renewal of life. 

With a paradigm shift that cracked the code towards living a more healthy, meaningful and expansive life, Jess began her next chapter which she refers to as a "rewilding". She trains daily to live more consciously, to increase resiliency and cultivate a symbiotic relationship to nature. This last year she has taken on wild foraging, fishing, ancestral skills, ethical hunting and wilderness "surthrival". Jess believes that we are all born with an innate instinct, intuition and a unique imprint to thrive as we design a truly adventurous life and that rewilding is the new self-care.
