Atulya Bingham on Offgrid Living, Nature Connection and Earth Whispers - E88
What does it take to create a life you love close to nature?
In this episode Amisha connects with author, mud home builder and Earth whisperer Atulya Bingham. Atulya speaks to us from her offgrid home in the mountains of Northern Spain, and shares the story of how she first took up residence in a tent on a hillside in Turkey. She tells of her initial terror, and then deep abiding love of the wild land and all its inhabitants.
Together, Amisha and Atulya speak about the sensitivity and discernment that arises when we reconnect with wild nature, how living outside of the mainstream system brings joy and also challenge, and the process of decay that is making way for the seeds of new ways of being to come forth and bear fruit. They discuss the relational alchemy and diverse sources of wisdom that we find in connection with the natural world, how to listen to trees, and the critical importance of finding joy in every moment of life.
