Welcome to Wild Wisdom, and me, Michelle MacEwan. On this website, I share an overview of my life’s work with you. I am a spiritual teacher, a speaker, an environmental activist, and a mystic. I am also a storyteller as I use the medium of stories to share my knowledge, ideas, and wisdom.
My philosophy is simple: I believe and practice Wild Wisdom—tapping into and developing one’s vision, awareness, natural skills and abilities—those that our ancestors trusted and relied upon, and interweaving that knowledge with our own experience.
Our dreams, prayers, and intentions
Set the course of our journey
Spinning our stories into the heavens
And into the Earth
In this time of deep change
Is the possibility to generate shifts
For ourselves and for the whole of nature
We must surrender to a deeper awareness that lies within
And live in accord with natural law
I live in wild places; mostly I’m in Australia on the cliffs above the Southern Ocean, or on the west coast of Ireland, overlooking the north Atlantic.
I work with individuals (in-person and Skype sessions) and groups (at conferences, in gatherings, retreats and Skype meetings). My work facilitates profound personal change because I use powerful techniques like the inner journey, storytelling, myths, dreams, guided meditations, outdoor pilgrimages, writing exercises, and intimate conversations, to help you on your own journey.
My driving force is to create with you, strong spiritual connections and pathways to live life as a journey, to develop an innate understanding of your inner world and to live harmoniously with all life on Earth.
I invite you to journey with me.
The principles and practices of Wild Wisdom celebrate and revere our place in nature and on earth.
My work is to help you evolve your consciousness and to develop your spiritual pathway. Understanding and practicing the tenets of Wild Wisdom will help you on your journey.
I share the principles and the ways you can practice and incorporate Wild Wisdom in your life, from my speaking engagements, one-on-one sessions, writings and website.
Science now confirms what mystics have always known: the existence of an unseen realm. To gain access to this realm, we must delve into the inner journey.
To journey means to go within and into our core being. The inner journey takes us deep into our own self—to a place that is not fixed in time and space, and where we belong.
I have developed a particular way to journey over the years and I will guide you to discover your inner journey and how you can incorporate this practice into your life.
One key principle: the inner journey begins with the heart; allow your mind to take a step back and let your heart be the guide.

We live in turbulent times. The Earth is changing, and not in good ways. We are seeing and experiencing the effects of climate change on our planet which, I believe, is reflective of our inner world. There is a reason why the word “nature” refers to our inner selves and to the world around us. Our goal should be to live harmoniously in the intersection of both worlds—in that sweet spot.
We have a lot of work to do—on ourselves, to find and strengthen our spiritual pathway—and in nature, to respect and protect our environment. When we truly understand that we are all a part of nature and not separate from it, we can address the changes before us, leading to a better world.
Living next to the Southern Ocean, I see firsthand the effects of climate change on our planet. Missives are papers and blog posts that blend scientific fact on issues including climate change, the environment, biodiversity and the oceans with my spiritual beliefs.
Wild Sanctum is our wildlife rescue and rehabilitation centre. Our mission is to care for wildlife and to raise awareness about the wild and our place in nature.
I live in the wild. Most of the year I’m in Australia—on cliffs above the Southern Ocean. This land possesses a fierce natural beauty that grabs me and doesn’t let go. Living in this wild place inspires me and feeds my soul.
In the month of August I am offering individual and small group retreats, in the Otways, south west Victoria. We’ll stay on on the Great Ocean Road, close to the beach, the rainforest and the pristine Are River.

From mid September to mid October I am offering individual and small group retreats in Connemara. Minimum of 3 days, up to 5 people. We’ll stay on the Skye road located on the cliffs overlooking the North Atlantic.

I am so so so happy with all that is unfolding in my life... And I don’t really know if I’d be doing any of these things if I hadn’t met Michelle.
Almost immediately Michelle helped me reframe the challenges I faced and start to approach them differently. As someone who felt she had ‘seen it all’ when it came to therapy and personal growth work, I remain struck by just how eloquent, practical, grounded, and deeply effective Michelle is.
Our calls were so helpful and inspiring that I jumped at the chance to meet Michelle when she was working in Ireland.
Over the course of 4 magical days of ‘inner journey’ work, personal story, and walking through ancient landscapes together I was able to put aside some of the biggest barriers I’d spent my life dragging around.
Nothing that I’ve ever done has proved as swift, immediate and lasting as the work we did together.
No one is like Michelle. She has a unique gift.
I have worked with so many healers and have never come across someone who can shoot to the heart of something so rapidly. She’s the real thing.
I don’t think I would have the relationship with my family that I do now without her and the sacred space she created.
I am profoundly grateful for my time with Michelle - both for my one-to-one sessions via Skype and the pilgrimage to Ireland, and also for a deep connection to my own ancestors that I would never have otherwise experienced.
If I had one phrase for this work it would be ‘feeding the soul’, and I’m a happier, wiser, stronger, more satisfied person for it.
Michelle has changed my perspective on being an artist. What used to feel like an insurmountable series of obstacles is gone, and I am now working in my chosen field and I feel creative and alive.
