Sam Gravestock aka 'Man of Tanith' online isn't a big teacher, author or guide. He is just a regular husband, father and Care Manager who happens to have a very deep connection, passion for and reverence of nature.
Although started in childhood, Sam's connection with nature really deepened after a nervous breakdown. He found that nature played a huge role in his healing and has been his way of dealing with stress and staying resilient ever since.
What I love about Sam is that he is a passionate advocate about the healing power of nature, yet there is nothing pretentious about him. He has a profound and deep connection with the Earth, and yet he is completely humble.
For those of us who are just 'regular folks' there is a lot to learn from this very wise man. In this conversation, we talk about:
Why a connection with nature makes Sam a better husband and father
The role of nature in mental health recovery and well being
The link between practical bushcraft, intuition and spirituality
How nature has a healing effect on us on multiple levels
Why "only the wilderness is pure truth"
How to work with nature to reset and destress
Why real bushcraft is more about a relationship with nature than conquering and surviving nature
How to use your intuition to connect with the natural world
The role of a rite of passage in personal growth
How to deepen your relationship with nature
