Personal Statement :
To paraphrase a previous guest on the podcast, regenerative practice is a way of thinking and living birthed by our Indigenous ancestors over tens of millennia. The term ‘regenerate’ comes from the Latin word ‘regeneratus’, which means ‘created again.’ And today, cultures everywhere are coming to understand it refers to holistic approaches that enable living systems to regenerate themselves. These emerging cultural connections, stories and practices feel to me like the heart of regenerative practice.
