Mary Reynolds Thompson has roamed the farthest reaches of the planet, from the highest points of the Himalayas to the tip of Tierra del Fuego, deepening her relationship with the sacred earth. She spends many hours walking the trails around where she lives, learning to slow down and pay attention to what the wild has to teach her--teach all of us who are searching for a richer understanding of our own wild nature.

Exploring her inner wilderness have been key to Mary's work. Her journey of eco-spirituality includes a decades-long successful recovery from alcoholism that grounds her in an understanding of we can all awaken from the addictive trance of the modern world.

Mary also serves on the core faculty of the Therapeutic Writing Institute and the council for the National Association of Journal Writing, and is founder of Write the Damn Book. Author of Embrace Your Inner Wild: 52 Reflections for an Eco-Centric World, her writings on eco-spirituality have appeared in numerous publications and three anthologies.
