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.

I’m Tracey Parker Kindall.

I’m an independent scholar, teacher, wisdom-keeper, and story curator.

I started Earth•Story•Spirit in 2019 to help women find grounding in their bodies and in the body of the Earth, participate fully in the River of Story, and find belonging and meaning through connection to Spirit. Through E•S•S, I offer group classes, retreats,

and personal life/story coaching. 

Outside of E•S•S, I teach history at McCall's private and internationally accredited North Fork School and teach mythology classes at BSU’s Osher Institute for Lifelong Learning. My work is influenced by my background, which includes 25 years of service in the non-profit sector across 4 states, 13 years of homeschooling, a BS degree in Biology and MS degree in Folklore Studies, training as a RYT500 yoga instructor, history teaching certification, travel, parenting, living within a family of enthusiasts, and a variety of other adventures, mishaps, triumphs, and tragedies. Earth, Story, and Spirit are the "three graces" that have sustained and nourished my journey.

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 Learning.

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

in the mountains of Idaho. Thank you for visiting!
