"The human condition that we've all kind of grown up to know, we go through a caging process, we get put into cages, we're asked to color within the lines, follow the rules stick to a path—a plan. And with each part of our wild-ish nature that gets cut off, we essentially build one more bar around us." – Kelly Wilde
In this conversation, we dance around a range of personal topics including:
🪨 Reflections on the last couple of decades of her life—from existential reckonings, identity crises, multiple career paths and rock-bottom moments that she has been through—and how these challenges have given way to a deeper clarity, knowing herself more intimately and beginning the process of what she describes as rewilding the feral aspects of her psyche.
🧘 This led into the story of our experience at a 10-day meditation retreat we attended in Mexico last year, and how reflecting on death led to us getting married a mere two weeks later.
❣️ We also talk about our reflections on the value we found from working with a couple's therapist, early on in our marriage and how being aware of what she calls the skeleton woman archetype has helped us to navigate rocky moments along the way in our partnership.
I hope you enjoy this intimate conversation with the love of my life, Kelly Wilde.
