What "Wild" can teach you

"Wild" is a story about transformation through endurance. It is about the letting go of doubts. It is about having an unbreakable spirit.

It is about straying, finding your way back to yourself and giving yourself permission to do so.

NVC teaches skills for communicating in a way that respectfully expresses true feelings and the power of requesting wants without demands or force.
