about

A life lived deeply rooted in the Earth, nurtured by Story, and guided by Spirit is a

life many of us long for. Intimacy with Earth, Story, and Spirit requires trusting your

wild mind, also known as your “mythic mind” or “child mind.”

 

Logos and Mythos are words that religious scholar Karen Armstrong uses to designate

the two primary ways of human knowing. While logos provides a foundation for 

logic and rationality, mythos allows us to play and feel ~ it is the realm 

of subjective experience, imagination, and mystery.

It is through mythos that we engage most deeply and personally

with Earth, with Story, and with Spirit.

 

Most of us in the West have grown up steeped in logos and hungry for mythos.

When these two ways of knowing are out of balance, or when one has been repressed in

favor of the other, dissonance and stress occur.

There is often the feeling that something essential is missing, because it is.

 

The mission of Earth•Story•Spirit is to guide individuals back to a

place of balanced wisdom through the development of mythos.

 

Everyone is capable of experiencing the rapture of being fully alive. Sometimes we

just need a little guidance or support to set us on the wild and mythic path.

biography

I’m Tracey Parker Kindall. My three great life-long loves are nature, stories, and spiritual growth. These are the “three graces” that have sustained and guided my journey. Academically, this journey led me to degrees in biology (BS) and folklore studies (MS), both earned with honors. I LOVE learning and playing in the River of Story.

Along the way I also gained credentials as an RYT500 yoga

instructor and became a member of the SAGE Herbal Collective.

I dearly love sharing my passion for learning with others, and have amassed many years’ worth of teaching experience working with groups of all ages and backgrounds. Additionally, I homeschooled my own three children through 8th grade - a marvelous adventure guided by Waldorf principles, nature immersion, and a focus on hands-on science and the humanities. I recently completed a 12-year tenure as the director of the nonprofit McCall Arts and Humanities Council, a position which allowed me to create, fund, and sustain a variety of educational programs and to advocate for the power of imagination.

In addition to stewarding Earth•Story•Spirit, I currently teach history at McCall’s internationally-accredited North Fork School and teach a diverse array of mythology topics through Boise State University’s Osher Institute for Lifelong Living.

I live with my human, furred, avian, and botanical family in the mountains of Idaho. Thank you for visiting!
