These discussions always happen on a continuum.
For a child walking for the first time, just putting a single foot in front of the other is an accomplishment worth celebrating.
For an adult, I am not going to applaud them for walking across the room, a skill they have been exercising with impunity for their entire life, excepting those first couple years. And yet...if they had never made art, and picked up a crayon for the first time at age 50...
I would be there silently applauding.
For an excellent craftsperson or technician, to hone the edge of their skill sharper and sharper decade after decade, while continually managing to skip attending to the deeper layers of relationship - I respect and salute the skill, but one might say that that "is not" rewilding in any deep way.
In the 8 shields terms, this would be much like perpetually grinding away in the South of the compass, a single-minded focus, akin to being a kind of rewilding workaholic. What is a workaholic anyway? A person who thinks that by a superabundance of investment in one thing (making a living), it will make up for everything else they are starving (family, loving their partner, helping make a home, walking the creative path they are called to, etc.).
Having said that, I'm finding that I am no longer getting a lot of benefit from calling myself a "rewilder" or what I do "rewilding", because I hear this or that thing "isn't rewilding", or doesn't have anything to do with primitive skills, etc.
So I'm getting a little bit of my own medicine, I suppose.
So perhaps talking about what is or isn't "real" rewilding is a dead end. I think there is a thing here somewhere - about walking one's path as deeply as possibly - but I no longer feel qualified to talk about what "real" rewilding is.
