guiding you through grief, loss, and new life

Wild Imagination

Hello, dear friends of Wild Imagination –

After a decade of serving you to navigate change with more ease, Wild Imagination Arts and Healing is itself being transformed.

I’ve consolidated body wisdom practices and hands-on healing work into The Fluent Body. I’m so happy to share this work with you in a new way.

Meanwhile, Wild Imagination is currently focused on fiction writing and editing. I’ve been writing short stories and getting some published. I’ve also been co-editing Birdland Journal.

I’m starting up the monthly newsletter again to help you move forward with the inspiration of seasonal and creative cycles.  If you haven’t already done so, Subscribe to our newsletter . Our archive for past newsletters is here. Thanks!

Note: The Fluent Body will remain under the auspices of Wild Imagination, the legal fictitious business name for all my work.

Contact me with questions or concerns.  Many thanks and blessings!
