The Earth and your own soul require you to live magnificently and fiercely; it is time for a new story. –Mary Reynolds Thompson
Welcome creatives, Earth-lovers, and spiritual seekers. If you yearn for a deeper, more connected, and creative life, your Wild Soul Story is a map unlike any other. Rooted in wild language–– leafy, rich, raw–– it is set to guide you to the heart of your aliveness.
No one Wild Soul Story is like any other. To all of us, however, it bridges the false divide between inner and outer nature, Earth and Soul.
Living this story, we come fully alive. We embrace a sense of self that is connected to the Earth and to our own true nature.
Your Wild Soul Story isn’t the story of your job title or credentials. It cares less for facts and more for feelings; it prefers instinct to reason. It is a story that requires you to leave the well-worn path and enter the dark and leafy terrain of your imagination. It communicates in the language of poetry, metaphor, and nature.

Mary’s Wild Soul Story
It took me many years, but finally, I found my own wild path to living. In 1983, at age twenty-seven, I stood above the Pacific Ocean on a stormy day, terrified. I’d just given up drinking, and didn’t know how I would live. I tasted salt, and didn’t know if it was mine or the ocean’s. I felt completely at one with that great body of water. In that moment, I sensed the ocean’s strength in me; I knew I would be all right.
In the years that have followed, the natural world and the poetry of the Earth have granted me a sense of rightness I never experienced before. In following my own Wild Soul, I have come home to my self and my place of belonging in the world.
