All About Claire Dunn

Claire Dunn is a writer, educator, soul guide and barefoot explorer. Claire worked for many years as an environmental campaigner, before turning her attention to the human-nature connection, studying Deep Ecology with Joanna Macy, eco-psychology, and wilderness survival skills. In 2010, Claire embarked on a year of bush retreat. Her recent book My Year Without Matches: Escaping the the City in Search of the Wild is the bestselling memoir of that journey. Claire is currently working on another memoir, this time exploring wildness in the urban landscape. Claire is a passionate advocate for ‘rewilding’ our inner and outer landscapes, and facilitates nature-based reconnection retreats, contemporary wilderness rites of passage and individual mentoring.
