Dive into the fundamental, revolutionary concept of rewilding with Daniel Vitalis, a renowned speaker on health, human anthropology, and wild food.
Daniel is a provocative and controversial speaker, which is one of the reasons he is one of my personal favourite speakers.
Daniel is a “real-deal”, no “BS” kind of guy, who is well articulated, well researched and has some fascinating and dynamic life experiences.
Discover how our domesticated lifestyles have led to a decline in physical and mental health, increased chronic diseases, and a lack of fulfillment.
Daniel sheds light on our disconnection from food and the natural world, emphasising the importance of developing meaningful relationships with the creatures and plants that sustain us. Through intimate killings, hunting, and foraging, he explores the original human diet, natural human living and the benefits of embracing diversity in our food choices. Join us on this journey of rediscovery as we learn how to break free from domestication and reconnect with our wild nature.
