After our Clan Leader's relocation, the Clan is being re-founded in Denver, CO. Stay tuned for announcements about upcoming public events. Public events are open to all. Membership in Clan of the Wildlings is by invitation only.
Each new member must go through a process of application, commitment and learning. Read on to see if Clan of the Wildlings is for you!
I call to you in the name of Earth and Sky and Sea. I call to you in the name of the wild creatures and all of our relations.
Come to me, brothers and sisters. Let us go together into the wilds. Let us dance and drum, let us sing, let us live free!
What is a wildling?
noun - A wild plant or animal that has escaped from cultivation.
There was a time that human beings were wild and free. Nowadays most of us live our lives bound by the “life script” that society gifts us with at birth. We’re born, we go to school, we start a career, we marry, we have children. Our social circles, the media and advertisers tells us who we are supposed to be. We follow the rules and don’t ask questions.
But what if there was another way to live?
A wildling is a person who thinks for her or him self. Someone who doesn’t accept anything at face value. Someone who must discover and face the truth, all of the truth. A wildling is an explorer of inner and outer worlds. Someone who gets her hands dirty, climbs until her lungs are bursting and crouches silently, looking down to gain perspective. Someone who rises in triumph and shouts her freedom to the sky!
Are You a Wildling?
A wildling is a free person. All those misfits, artists, musicians, dancers, outcasts, dreamers, and fabulous creatures that are just a little too bright, a little too vivid for mainstream society. We recognize each other when we meet, sometimes as if we've known one another before. All those who are brave enough to confront and embrace their inner wild creatures. All those witches who want to drum and dance under the light of the full moon and the bright sun. Those who can hear the voice of the forest or the river. Our clan. And also those who were born in the mainstream who see the glimmer of a far off star and want to explore…
A wildling is also a serious spiritual seeker, someone who is willing to deal with personal issues, learn fundamental spiritual skills, take personal responsibility, and who will contribute to the group in a positive way. To live the wildling way is to commit to daily practice of the spiritual discipline that we teach, and to daily apply our mission statement - to seek balance of body, mind, and spirit in harmony with the Earth.
