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 habitat conservation, regeneration, and experiential learning.
I have taught undergraduate courses in ecology and sustainable food systems and spent two field seasons in Senegal researching the relationship between soil nutrients and agricultural pests.
My work focuses on strengthening environmental sustainability through eco-education, habitat support, ecosystem surveys, as well as administrative services.
Earth Wonder is based in 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, but we also need stories of wisdom and depth, that stir our emotional connection to the earth.
We work to develop ecological literacy AND to dive into the unseen world of imagination and stories that drive much of our current environmentally destructive behavior.
WONDER is particularly good at this. When we are in a state of wonder, we have suspended belief. We have opened up to the prospect that there is still more to learn and be amazed by.
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 spirited 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.
Shifting from overwhelm and despair to action and gratitude.
