What’s in the May ‘Keep it Wild’ Issue of Face the Current?
Our mission at Face the Current is to create a ripple effect of positive change providing fuel for our reader’s to live an authentic, inspired life and achieve their full potential. But what does it mean to keep it wild in this context?
“Don’t ask yourself what the world needs. Ask yourself what makes you come alive and then go do that. Because what the world needs is people who have come alive.”
Consider that living a ‘wild’ life means not being ruled by fear, stress, and anxiety; staying true to yourself and jettisoning the naysayers and/or societal expectations that instill self-doubt. Simply put, it can mean having the courage to be your most authentic self. We need to free ourselves from the constraints that keep us stuck, complacent, and “normal”—which is not easy, especially in a world that reinforces conformity.
This month’s features illustrate how we can free ourselves from the constraints and expectations others place on us to get in touch with who we really are and what we really want. We also explore other things wild, from travel to remote wilderness and the Van Boom lifestyle trend, to the art of re-wilding back to human nature, extreme sports feats, and going wild on green smoothies and wild edibles!
We get to know Rory Kramer, a videographer, photographer, director, clothing line architect and host of his own MTV show who shares how he stays authentic to his true self by following his soul’s quest for fulfillment. His refusal to stifle his creativity has allowed him to travel the globe and realize the beauty in our magnificent planet.
Sergei Boutenko tells how his experience of survival and self-healing through his discovery of wild edibles and his Raw Family’s ‘green smoothie revolution’ led him to author numerous books, film documentaries, and lead workshops around the globe on the power of plant based foods, food diversity, and eating wild edibles. He reveals his insights and shares his favorite recipes!
Fedde Le Grand is, is a living legacy, credited with pioneering electronic House Music. In his interview he tells how he has kept it authentic and plans to continue living his dream.
What a wild idea to think that we are capable of self-health! Well, sarcasm aside, the contrary is actually the wild concept; that we must rely on doctors, pharmaceuticals, etc. and lack the potential to live healthy lives whilst while employing self-health practices. To put this into perspective, we are excited to present the first of a three part interview with Dr. Bruce Lipton who helps guide us to regain intimate understanding and connection with mind-body and our macro environment. He shares his incredible insights on subjects ranging from stem cells, falling (and staying!) in love, cooperation versus competition as factors in evolution, and changing your subconscious programs. In this initial discussion, Dr. Lipton explores science and quantum biology as they relate to spirituality.
As a result of reading this month’s edition, we hope you can imagine what it would be like to have a whole world full of people keeping it wild, living authentic and true to his and herself! But with as with all revolutions, it starts with you; and as Dr. Lipton reveals, something as simple as your thoughts can have a ripple effect of powerful impact all the way down to your DNA!
