Event description: Wild Mind Intensive Based on Bill Plotkin’s book, Wild Mind: A Field Guide

to the Human Psyche, this 5-day intensive is an experiential exploration of our human psyches

as unique expressions of the universal forces and patterns of nature. We will work with what

we call the Nature-Based Map of the Human Psyche, which is, among other things, a

comprehensive inventory of what can be right about a person, a “shadow” version of the

Diagnostic and Statistical Manual (DSM), mainstream psychology’s list of what can go wrong

with people.

Our wild minds possess astonishing resources, untapped potentials and depths that we might

not even know exist until we discover how to access them, cultivate their powers, and

eventually integrate them into our everyday lives. In this intensive, we’ll access these depths

and potentials — which we call the four facets of the Self, or the four dimensions of our innate

human wholeness — and also the four sets of fragmented or wounded subpersonalities that

form during childhood.

Rather than attempt to eliminate our subpersonalities (which is not possible) or to beat them

into submission, we’ll cultivate the four facets of the Self and uncover the gifts of our

subpersonalities. Our goal is to fully embody our multifaceted wild minds, commit ourselves

to the largest, soul-infused story we’re capable of living, and serve the greater Earth



• how to recognize and consciously cultivate the four facets of the Self — your innate human


• how to identify the subpersonalities that supported you in childhood and adolescence to

adapt to the challenges of family and social life, but ultimately became barriers to your full

and authentic humanity

• practices and guidelines for cultivating relationships between the Self and your

subpersonalities, enabling you to heal your subpersonalities, discover their gifts, and foster


• how each facet of the Self provides essential resources for the underworld journey (the

descent to soul), its radical transformation of personal identity, and for living as a visionary

artisan of cultural evolution.

We’ll explore the landscape of the psyche through a variety of practices, including creative

expression, self-designed ceremony, solo exercises while wandering on the land, group work,

movement, voice dialogue, journaling, and deep imagery work.

The Guide: Sage Magdalene

Sage is an artist creating experiences that promote radical shifts of consciousness leading to generous, generative, Earth-loving practices of ecological reciprocity. She designs collaborative international gatherings, performances and demonstrations that encourage cross-species communication and initiate quantum shifts in humanity's capacity to respond creatively and compassionately to current planetary crisis situations. Sage is a guide and trainer for Animas Valley Institute, an organization dedicated to supporting the underworld journey to soul initiation for present and future

generations. She has a gift for hearing and reflecting the deep stories of many beings. She invites people to thresholds and opens gates between worlds. She has been an educator, artist, dancer, and gate keeper in many ecosystems. Her greatest joy is to hear and converse with the wild others: moon, spider, frog, human, river and stars. She brings a light touch and embodied wisdom to the serious work of transformation. Sage lives in the Pojoaque River Valley, northern New Mexico, USA.
