“Mary Reynolds Thompson works simple magic to bind our broken souls back into full round rapport with the more-than-human terrain. And as the land restores our sanity, we’re empowered to work with new clarity to replenish the many-voiced vitality of the animate earth.”
~ DAVID ABRAM, AUTHOR OF THE SPELL OF THE SENSUOUS, BECOMING ANIMAL
Are you ready to feel rooted, powerful, courageous, authentic, instinctual, and alive... Explore your strength, sensuality, and creativity... Let go of what keeps you from living your deepest truth... And embark on your own unique heroine’s journey?
It's time to embody and express from your wild soul ~ the part of you that knows you are one with rivers, forests, and mountains. To break free of the fears and cages that hold you back. To experience yourself and Earth as the powerful, embodied Feminine.
This course is an invitation to your wild soul...
A Wild Soul Woman is a journey of soul recovery that offers a dynamic pathway for women to reclaim their innate and instinctual wildness. Week by week, you will be initiated into five landscape archetypes of deserts, forests, oceans and rivers, mountains, and grasslands as aspects of your own psyche and soul.
Each landscape sheds light on the magnificent geography of your being in all its fierce grace and bountiful wisdom. The great landscapes arose from the Earth, just as you did, and their energies evoke deep feelings and potential within you at both conscious and unconscious levels.
During this course, you will be enfolded in sacred and creative space where the totality of you – in all your earth-born aspects – can be reclaimed and integrated. The result is the emergence of a wild, brave, and fully alive you – one ready to take a stand for a wilder, more alive world.

“A Wild Soul Woman course was and continues to be a deep source of inspiration for life! During the course the archetypal landscapes were explored in such a profound way, that truly made a difference in my work as an artist: I was practically stepping into new things and connecting to the landscape energies gave answers to many questions I had - and unexpectedly deep answers straight from the intelligence and power of nature.”

“The Wild Soul Woman course opened me up in new and profound ways. I’ve always felt a deep connection to the Earth, but now I experience an even more meaningful relationship with landscapes, trees, plants and animals. The course nurtures its participants while raising money for planting trees. Clare and Mary are wise women creating sacred space for an ever-evolving practice. Travel through the five landscapes enriches our relationship with the Earth and with each other. I’m looking forward to taking this course again and highly recommend it .”

“Mary took people from the point of speaking about their love of trees, to feel they can speak with authority as the voice of the earth.”
~ SUZI MATRTINEAU, FOUNDER OF THE TREE CONFERENCE http://thetreeconference.com
“From the giant Redwoods, nestling into the moist forest floor.. and then flying over the treetops to the mountains...to an ancient cave, tracing cave paintings... frozen springs, glaciers, polar bears on blue ice floes... leaping back to high mountains, the dancing, flying... what a wild soul ride!"

“Mary Reynolds Thompson explores ‘the breath of wildness,’ the reality of kinship that exists just beyond the reach of our senses — or at least our most familiar senses. She has rolled up her sleeves and commenced what Thomas Berry called the Great Work of the 21st century: reconnecting to the rest of the natural world, for meaning. For soul.”
~ Richard Louv, The Nature Principle and Last Child in the Woods
“Reclaiming the Wild Soul is a gateway into the great spiritual journey of our time: that of non-dual consciousness, also called spiritual ecology. These moving stories and images and poetry of Reynolds Thompson will carry you into a fresh, though ancient, realization: the deserts and forests and mountains are there in the universe, and yet simultaneously, they are vibrantly alive in the depths of our souls.”
~ Brian Swimme, Ph.D., author of The Hidden Heart of the Cosmos and The Universe Story (with Thomas Berry)
“With ingenuity and subtlety, Mary Reynolds Thompson guides us in ways both old and new to enter Earth’s archetypal wildscapes and allow them to infuse us and make us whole again, fully human. Woven with enchanting stories and wise counsel,Reclaiming the Wild Soul lavishly supports us, at this time of global crisis/opportunity, to return, emboldened, to Earth and to our own human wildness."
~ Bill Plotkin, author of Wild Mind: A Field Guide to the Human Psyche and Soulcraft: Crossing into the Mysteries of Nature and Psyche
