Return to Nature

A journey of embodiment, enchantment and earth connection.

Naturism is Non-Binary

Pictured above: clothing and nail polish that may be used to express gender but do not inherently presuppose gender. To be naked is to be fully yourself. No artifice, no layers, no hiding—just you. Your voice, your personality, your body. And who are you when you exist as just your body? What is your identityContinue reading “Naturism is Non-Binary”

Nudity in Tarot

Naked Faith Part 1: The Garden

Before nuns wore habits, before families piled into minivans heading to church in their Sunday best, before skirts were measured and purity rings promised, and before trendy megachurch pastors sported skinny jeans and Gucci sneakers, we were naked.

About Me

I’m a writer and designer based in Canada. With a deep appreciation for nature and social causes, I believe the practice of naturism can provide healing to both our society and environment.

My Naturist Beliefs

In addition to traditional naturist philosophy—respect for self, others and the environment—my naturist ideology is strongly shaped by environmentalism, intersectionality and spirituality.

Environmentalism

As a naturist, I feel a deep connection to nature and a strong passion to protect it from the effects of human-caused climate change.

Intersectionality

As a naturally liberating practice, I believe that naturism is for everybody, and must be a welcoming place for all oppressed and marginalized people.

Spirituality

In a capitalistic, industrial society, returning to nature in our natural form is a powerful healing process for both our mental and spiritual health.

“Is not nakedness then indecent? No, not inherently. It is your thought, your sophistication, your fear, your respectability, that is indecent. There come moods when these clothes of ours are not only too irksome to wear, but are themselves indecent. Perhaps indeed he or she to whom the free exhilarating extasy of nakedness in Nature has never been eligible has not really known what purity is—nor what faith or art or health really is.”

–Walt Whitman
