“Bill Plotkin's Wild Mind ushers in a new era of depth psychology. For all the penetrating insights flowing from Sigmund Freud and his associates, the field's origin was imprisoned in the worldview that regarded our universe as dead. It was inevitable that psychological work would be confined to conversations between humans, in offices, insides buildings. Plotkin's work shatters that limited conception, for he lives in the creative universe articulated by quantum physics, indigenous traditions, and evolutionary cosmology. Most helpful of all, Plotkin shares his powerful processes for entering deep conversations with rivers and owls and stone. To study Wild Mind is to pass through a magical gateway into one's uniques role within the Great Work that Earth is calling us to.”

Mind Wind — A Nature-Based Map of the Psyche
In his book, Wild Mind: A Field Guide to the Human Psyche, Bill Plotkin offers a holistic nature-based model to reclaiming and embodying the many facets of our original innate human wholeness granted to us by nature. From this place of wholeness we learn how to come into a deeper relationship with the various sub-personalities or wounded parts of ourselves.
This non-pathological approach to the human psyche provides an approach to both assess and to engage in nature-based processes to more fully enhance the aspects of one’s wholeness.
This model is based on the 4-directions of North, East, South & West and each contains various energies and aspects of nature which mirrors the cycles and aspects of our own inner nature.
In my work I utilize this model for the work of wholing and self healing.
Using this map I will guide you to understand and to integrate these different energies of your psyche.
