“It is not because things are difficult that we do not dare;

it is because we do not dare that they are difficult.”  

~ Seneca

If you’ve landed at this website, you’ve likely experienced a call from your Deepest Self

 - to seek a new adventure, to make a big change, to locate your own unique path,

to become your fullest, most authentic self. What you might be seeking now is support along the way -

support with mapmaking, outfitting, getting in shape for, and navigating the path ahead. 

 

Through Earth•Story•Spirit, I provide support for your journey.

I believe that an investment in your relationships with the Earth, with Story, and with Spirit

will provide the clarity, direction, and sustenance you need to create and live your best life. 

 

Nurturing connection to Earth promotes strong presence within our own bodies, grounding in place(s), & full participation in our lives. A deep connection to the Earth & a practice of living in harmony with the seasons calm & de-stress our bodies. When we are present and grounded, we listen to, and care for, what poet Mary Oliver calls the “soft animal of our body.”

When our truest self is deeply rooted, it is inspired to grow & flourish. 

 

Nurturing connection to Story puts us in touch with the wild and transformational world of meaning-making through narrative. True agency & power come from owning our stories, both those past & those yet to be told. Imagination is our most powerful asset in both story-making &

in journey-taking (which are, in essence, the same thing).

I love helping people of all ages build strong imaginations and embrace a mythic mindset.   

 

Nurturing connection to Spirit consists of allowing space for awe, wonder, possibility,

as well as our “inter-being” with all Life. It requires active participation in living as part of a greater whole,

in honing connection, compassion, and community.

It also demands an acceptance of mystery, a willingness, as Rilke has said, “to live the questions.” 

 

I am here to help you plot a course worthy of your deepest longings, to fuel your way with a

strong imagination, to hone the skills you need to craft a beautiful life -

all from a strong grounding in Earth, Story, and Spirit.  

 

Dare the journey

biography

I’m Tracey Parker Kindall.

I’m a coach, teacher, scholar, and story curator.

I started Earth•Story•Spirit in 2019 to help people connect with their wildest, most authentic selves in order to lead beautiful meaning-filled lives. Through E•S•S, I offer a variety of classes, retreats, and

life coaching packages. I also regularly offer programs to help establish Women's Circles.

I teach history at McCall's private and internationally accredited 

North Fork School and teach mythology classes at Boise State University’s Osher Institute for Lifelong Learning. My syncretic work is influenced

by my background, which includes a lifelong passion for story, 25 years of service in the non-profit sector developing research-based programs,

13 years of homeschooling, a BS degree in Biology and

MS degree in Folklore Studies, training as a RYT500 yoga instructor,

and over 15 years teaching people of all ages and abilities. I love travel,

being a parent, and living within a family of enthusiasts. 

I gratefully embrace a life story full of quirky 

adventures, ups & downs, mishaps, triumphs, and tragedies.

Earth, Story, and Spirit are the "three graces" that

have sustained and nourished my own journey.

I live with my human, furred, avian, and botanical family

in the beautiful mountains of Idaho. Thank you for visiting!
