Emma Morbach on New Lives In The Wild

When Ben first met Emma, she was 61 years old.

She had left the modern life, her family home and her marriage to live in a mud hut in the countryside.

Her hut was destroyed a year before Ben initially visited her five years ago.

He helped her build a new hut, as well as collected wood, used the river for washing, and tried out her homemade sauna.

Where is Emma Morbach now?

Ben first visited Emma five years ago, but went back last summer – under strict Covid precautions – to see how she is doing now.

Now, the hut owner would be around 66 years old.

Still living in the forest in Pembrokeshire, Wales, Emma is described by Ben as the “wildest person” he’s ever met in the world.

Now, she has a new hut, which was made using twigs and horse manure.

She has needed to adapt her lifestyle as she has gotten older, and introduces other people who have joined her.

During his second visit, Ben helped Emma and her new friends to make a communal mud hut, and is taught about the building’s spiritual value.
