Owning up to being an animal, a creature of earth. Tuning our animal senses to the sensible terrain: blending our skin with the rain-rippled surface of rivers, mingling our ears with the thunder and the thrumming of frogs, and our eyes with the molten sky. Feeling the polyrhythmic pulse of this place—this huge windswept body of water and stone. This vexed being in whose flesh we’re entangled. Becoming earth. Becoming animal. Becoming, in this manner, fully human.

-David Abram, Becoming Animal: An Earthly Cosmology

Working with Mary Marsden

I work with individuals across the US and world via Zoom and in person. Mentorship with a nature-based soul guide is invaluable when confronting the twists and turns, cliff edges and narrow passages that present at significant thresholds in our life journey; particularly the journey of soul initiation. Through individual mentorship and immersive group programs, I support people to grow in intimate relationship with themselves, the wild earth, the mysterious and hidden nature of their souls and the world.
