Whispers from the Wild: An Invitation (EBook)

Founded in 2000, Earthfire Institute is a sanctuary for rescued wildlife native to the Yellowstone to Yukon Wildlife Corridor. Living with these wild animals over their lifetimes, founder and Executive Director Susan B. Eirich, Ph.D., vividly illuminates the incredible connection of these animals to each other and to the humans who care for them. Through inspirational storytelling, Susan shares her experiences with these animals, in play, in love, and through their passing. From a wolf who maneuvered her way into cabin-living to a developmentally delayed grizzly bear who deeply moved all who met him, these are the stories of the animals of Earthfire–a taste of the laughter, joy and love they brought, and the insights they offered. Filled with hundreds of stunning color photographs and exclusive artwork, half of the proceeds from Whispers From the Wild will go to support the animals of Earthfire Institute Wildlife Sanctuary. Earthfire is sustained primarily by donations. Please consider partnering with us to support the Earthfire animals and our vision of flourishing habitats for all Life.

An Invitation to Participate in a Book

A woman is transformed by an experience with a dying kitten.
A man is forever changed by an interaction with a group of trees.
A runner pausing over a rushing river hears the words,” Everything must change…”
We have profound experiences in nature more often than many think.

I invite you to share an experience in nature that has moved you. 

Where do we go for solace, healing, and hope in turbulent times? Our natural instinct is to turn to each other and to nature. Many of us have had profound experiences in nature, but society doesn’t offer support for them or the teachings they offer. And yet, these experiences light a path to the way nature works and illuminate our integral connection to and expression of it. These experiences guide us to an ancient wisdom within us where we can access creative solutions to our current crises. Recognizing, trusting, and sharing these experiences makes them more powerful. I call this Reconnection Ecology®.

It is crucial that we support each other in this endeavor. In this spirit, I would like to invite you to share a profound experience you have had in nature for possible inclusion in a book I am writing about Reconnection Ecology®. It is my hope this will contribute to a tipping point where we expand our awareness to include all Life in our decisions. Please know that anything you offer will be held in the strictest confidence.

If you are interested, send an email to and we will forward more details. If your experience is selected and you agree, I may give you a call to further explore the dimensions of your experience. We may also hold online conversations where we can share these experiences and inspire one another.
