  24. 24. Why Wilderness? Getting in touch with nature allows us to get in touch with our own true nature, brings us back to basics, and strips us of our veneer of civilization. Wilderness tests our capacity to improvise and adapt, to recognise our reflection in the mirror of our environment and others around us, to see the things we often deny or ignore, be that our beauty, strength, power, or our shadows. The magic of wilderness offers the space, silence, stillness, beauty and inspiring landscapes that beckon us to listen to the voices of our heart, mind and soul, opening new ways of being, uncovering more of who we are, and linking us more vividly with each other, with eternal cycles and the natural elements.
