In the first episode of the ReWild Yourself! Podcast, I'm honored to bring you my good friend Arthur Haines, a plant taxonomist who practices and shares a neoaboriginal life way to foster awareness, connection, health and self-reliance. We discuss a very important question: Are we really Homo sapiens? We get into the 4 criteria that define a domesticated species and find that it might make sense to begin classifying humans a little differently. Enter Homo sapiens domesticofragilis, or wise, fragile, domesticated man. Arthur gives us the key factors to transcending domestication and living the NeoAboriginal Lifeway.
Domestication is virtually synonymous with identity crisis. Nature connection and wild living can help you find that expression of your ultimate gift. ~Arthur Haines

Greetings! My name is Arthur Haines and I’ve been helping people explore human ecology for over 20 years. I’ve done this with the mission of developing deep awareness of and connection to nature, promoting individual health, and fostering self-reliance. Wild food is a passion of mine, and through this, I offer a glimpse of our past and a new picture of our future. Through this knowledge, and many other facets of our shared ancestral lifeways, we can awaken a rewilding of our body, mind, and heart.
I endeavor to share knowledge garnered from this perspective, one that merges the material knowledge of present-day people with the ecological knowledge of ancestral people.
