“What if our primary human need and opportunity is not to endlessly attend to our emotional wounds and the eradication of perceived psychological disorders but rather to fathom and flesh out our natural human wholeness and to embody this integral bounty as a gift to others and our world?” — Bill Plotkin, Wild Mind
The Problem: Disconnection
The range of symptoms that blanket the western world–depression, anxiety, addiction, distraction, grief—have their deeper source, in part, in the disconnection that pervades our lives: disconnection from each other, from our natural world, and from the deeper sense of meaning at our core.
The Solution: Claim Your Wholeness
With wild nature as our ally, mirror, and co-creator, we help bring out and reconnect with the wholeness and aliveness of what already exists.
We believe we need wild nature to evoke our own wholeness, that we yearn for meaning and connection, and that each person carries a unique soul calling—and it is the task of each of us to dig it out, cultivate it, and then share it.
Through participation custom 1-on-1 mentoring/ecotherapy sessions that include a toolbox of earth-rooted and soul-deepening practices and concepts, you will awaken and integrate the fullness of your body-heart-soul-spirit.
We will explore the parts of your inner world and outer life that are aligned and not aligned, and what the next unfurling of your journey looks like. You will journey full circle through the four directions and seasons of human nature with the help and witnessing of a knowledgeable and compassionate guide. Each session includes time together and solo time on the land.
WHAT TO EXPECT:
Each session is different, but all of our work together involves an initial bit of time to identify and clarify what is currently alive for you and the things that are calling within you to open up, lean into, and claim–with nature as your ally.
Your first session will be an opportunity to really tell YOUR heart story and have it deeply listened to (the story of your life…the story that has you on the edge of things…the story that has you hooked…the story of your deepest dream…tell THAT story).
Together we’ll co-create a map and a plan, personalized to you, for your following sessions.
What the package includes:
- An in-depth telephone conversation with me at the beginning of your journey.
- You’ll write an intention letter prior to your first on-the-land mentoring session. This will be refined over time.
- Individual sessions in a beautiful wild nature, including both council time and solo time
- Prompts, activities, and ideas for taking your work further between sessions.
- Surprises in the form of creations, tools, or poems that you can take away with you as ways of coming back to your learnings.

Most people find several or on-going sessions are fruitful and build upon one another, though it is possible to get a lot out of a single session. We both offer individual mentoring/inner wilderness sessions outside these packages. Ryan also assists in creating self-ceremonies on the land that is customized to your life journey at this moment. A 2-hour session is $125. Contact us with any questions.
*NOTE: Our nature-based mentoring is not Psychotherapy. We are both certified Ecotherapists through The Earthbody Institute. And while Katie is a Licensed Social Worker, the work of Wild Nature Heart is a soul-rooted practice with nature as context and one tool for self-growth and connection and is not meant to be psychotherapy.
