TheWild invites us
into the Sacred.


Have you heard the call of the wild ?

Have you experienced a mystical connection with God, with Mystery, with the soul of the world by listening and responding to the creatures and places around you?  What if we really did belong to this beloved community that expands beyond our species?

What if this Conversation was the Wild Christ?

The Sacred invites us
into the Wild.

The call into wilderness is not simply a metaphor.  

Ancient scriptures recount story after story of people who, at pivotal times in history, are called into the actual living wilderness. 

By the Sacred, by God.  On purpose.

As cultural and biological systems collapse around us,

a WILD SPIRITUALITY, intimate re-connection with Earth as sacred, is needed for our personal and collective transformation.  

It is a remembering that

we belong to a much larger love story.

 “Church of the Wild” is a groundbreaking account of postdualistic religious experience, and an intoxicating temptation to allow yourself to love.”

resuscitate Christianty?

“if humans hope to survive on this planet, we will have to find a more compassionate and interdependent way of living...The cosmology of a savior who will rescue us from this earth is not sufficient for such a time as this.”

Wild Churches and the
New World Order

"There is an unmediated presence of God to be experienced outside of the human constructs of civilization . . . a reconnection that happens when we enter into an intentional and reverent relationship with the natural world."


Encounters with particular beings or places are opportunities to learn the language of connection, invitations into relationship...

with the more-than-human-Others,

with the Sacred Presence

and with our own Souls.

Church of the Wild is a way of connecting with the Sacred through Nature.  It is an intentional re-membering ourselves back into the grand conversation, the great love story of aliveness.

And calling that church. 

Eco-spiritual direction is a spiritual companionship that includes the voices of the more-than-human Others, restoring the sacred conversation holding together all things. 

Even your own life.
