1 Year of Living “Off Grid” as a Family, and deciding to go back to a house – Ron Waline & Elena Harder

Watch the full Episode:https://elenaharderr.com/membership-home/podcast-membership

Today’s episode is a co collaboration with Ron Waline of Coyotes Path Podcast.  I was on his podcast about a year ago and we re-connected to catch up and share about the last years journey about our exploration of relationship with nature. 

We talk about:

  • How living off grid and living out a van life for the last two years has been
  • Different lessons and understandings than I thought I would gather in that time. 
  • How much time living on grid saves ourselves in terms of time. 
  • The interesting situations that the current world situation has got us into and our projections for whether or not the grid will crashed and what might happen when that happens (from a pretty light perspective, not a doom and gloom perspective at all)
  • The journey of seeing our different generations awaken and what exactly is happening on earth in terms of global awakening 
  • Understanding our trauma load
  • How our experiences can help us raise more awake, self aware children. 
  • We cover all that and a bunch more things in the episode. 

It was an absolute pleasure to talk to Ron and I hope you really enjoy. Thank you so much for listening

Since I was a young child the natural world has been my happy place. I grew up chasing frogs and catching fish at the pond in my backyard. I hunted and fished often as a young man and began using books and other resources to self-train in bushcraft and naturalist skills.

Over the years I have gained knowledge and skill in a broad array of subjects including plant and tree ID and use, fire-making, woods tool use, wilderness navigation, wildlife tracking and bird language, shelter building, trapping and hunting, and more. I have over ten years of experience instructing others in outdoors skills.

My favorite past-time is to spend time in nature with my family. My second favorite past-time is to share my love and knowledge of nature with others. Creating a legacy of love and connection for future generations is my goal in everything I do. My personal mission is to facilitate connection with self, others, and the natural world.

Still here? Maybe you need some background on why I'm sharing this...

As a single parent for many years, I know what it's like to live in daily overwhelm that seems it will never end.

After suffering from severe post-partum depression for 7 years, and an abusive relationship that I couldn't seem to quit, I developed a case of seriously self destructive self talk about being a "horrible mother". I knew I needed to do something different, but couldn't seem to shake old patterns.

I took every personal development class that came my way for 3 years straight.  3 day weekend intensives 3x month. After a while started to experiment with the few things that HAD been working to bring me more peace, and combined them into one power packed (and quick) experience, to help find that inner peace, and make progress towards my goal of ACTUALLY feeling good.

I built the first brain training track after listening to a John Asaraf course.  Things started changing for me in a big way and with these tracks I've been able to stop experiencing irrational anger towards my first child (who I had medical birth bonding trauma).  I'm no longer experiencing mental health challenges, attracted a wonderful man into my life who is a great father to her son so much more I dreamed of.

Now I spend my days writing, baby tending and helping other mothers  manage and reduce their stress, build healthier relationships, stop sounding like their mothers, and live lives they once only dreamed of.

I put the best, worst and naughtiest of it into this epic 444 page memoir to help myself and you recover from the culturally normalized rape that is all to rampant in the world right now.
