Hi I'm Mira,
I am the creator of Earth Wonder Consulting here in the mountains of Montana.
I am endlessly enthusiastic about ecosystem ecology and learning how to live in reciprocity with the land and oneself.
Completing a Master of Science in Sustainability drove me deep into the fascinating world of soil science and land management. I am passionate about wild places, the creative process, and experiential learning.
I have taught undergraduate courses in ecology, sustainable food systems, and ran many successful workshops and events.
My current work focuses on strengthening environmental stewardship through eco-education, habitat support, and creative expression.
Earth Wonder is based on the ancient philosophy of the anima mundi, or a soulful world.
“...this world is indeed a living being endowed with a soul and intelligence ... a single visible living entity containing all other living entities, which by their nature are all related.” -Plato
Not only do we need sound environmental science; we also need stories of wisdom and depth that stir our primal connection to the earth.
After all, what is more powerful than an idea? Our beliefs about who we are, what we need, and how the world works, drive much of our environmentally destructive behavior. WONDER is particularly good at disrupting bad stories. When we are in a state of wonder, we have suspended our beliefs. We have opened up to the prospect that there is still more to learn and ways to be amazed.
Wonder allows us to expand into a new realm where anything is possible.
"We cannot solve our problems with the same thinking we used when we created them." - attributed to Albert Einstein
We tell stories of times we felt awe, reverence, curiosity, or confusion, and they, in turn, infuse life into the world around us. That reminds us of the child within, who already recognizes the beauty in all life and perceives an anima mundi, a soul-ful world.
There is nothing more powerful than an idea.
Our work at Earth Wonder is designed to stimulate people’s imagination and introduce ways to shift our perspectives and formulate new ideas based on harmony and reciprocity.
