Participate in a dynamic community of women who are reclaiming their own wildness in service of living fully.
Awaken the Earth Archetypes within you so that you can stop playing safe and have the impact you long for.
Enhance your sense of self, stand in your own magnificence, become courageous, bountiful and brave.
Experience your innate wildness through tools and embodied practices that bridge Earth and soul.
Heal core wounds that have kept you from expressing the vibrancy, sensuality, and creativity of your wild soul.
During the course, you will travel into the deepest and most untamed aspects of the soul. You will enter an inner world of archetypes, metaphors, symbols, dreams and imagery, where ancient Earth energies shed light on the fullness of who you are.
Throughout the course, you will be guided through six modules. You'll have the pleasure of taking the course in your own time, as fast or slow as you like because it’s completely self led and online. This makes it really easy to fit into your life. Every module includes a 60-minute long guided experience and explores one of the 5 landscapes.
The modules also include a landscape ceremony experience, journaling exercises, and specially created music meditations. Each week will be its own initiation. All of the sessions are strongly experiential. You’ll want to unplug and have your journals at hand! In the sixth module, you’ll receive an integration session, which will be a powerful way of bringing the teachings home.
Payment plan available.
For every participant 84 trees will be planted!
Silent, spacious, dry — where you feel into the bones of your being and the essence of who you truly are.
Mysterious, shadowed, ancient — where you explore your most creative, wild, and enchanted aspects as wise woman.
Fluid, powerful, generative—where you experience the depth of your longings and undam the flow of your life.
Solid, visible, influential—where you take a stand for the highest good and find the courage to rise and be seen for who you truly are.
Fertile, beautiful, sensuous—where you find the places (within and without) that invite your own passionate blooming.
We walk the final circle of the Wild Soul Mandala to integrate all aspects of the path and claim our wholeness through reclaiming our wild souls. We will make an offering to the Earth that is also a commitment to a wilder, more authentic way of living—one that takes back our wild feminine nature in service of all of life.

"I have just taken part in the A Wild Soul Woman commitment ceremony and I just want to say Mary, Clare, Wild Soul Woman sisters all over this planet, thank you. I am crying as I write this because I finally know that what I do is real. It matters. I matter. What I bring to the world matters. Thank you."

“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,
“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
