Awakening Wild: Poems & Field Notes on Life

We were all born wild. But somehow, along our journey, we forgot this way of being. Instead, we're exhausted, overwhelmed, and running on autopilot. Longing for peace, joy and clarity.

We’ve listened to everyone and everything except "the still small voice within." We’ve given our power away. Most of us haven’t even realized we’ve done so. But we can all call it back to us. We can re-wild.

This is a collection of original poems, short prose and inspirational writings that will help women of every age slow down, identify with her inner truth and cultivate an intentional way of living. And ultimately awaken the wild within. 

The 11 Awakenings

As I sat back reviewing the writings in my book, Awakening Wild, something magical happened. Patterns and themes jumped off the pages. The result was 11 newly emerged topics (or 11 awakenings, as I like to call them). A number, that at first, seemed odd to me. I wanted a nice round number like 10 or 12, but I just couldn’t make it work. Coincidently, I later learned that 11 is a symbol of spiritual awakening and spiritual enlightenment. Ok, Universe. I hear you. And so, 11 chapters it is.

The Yoga Pants Years

As a full-time, work from home momma to two small boys, Dana felt as though she was simply going through the multi-tasking motions as a mom, and began wondering if there was something more she was missing out on as everyone told her to “enjoy every minute of it.”


This collection of stories and lessons is filled with honesty, humor, and heart as one mother asks the big questions of Life while raising two small boys.


Full of fresh perspective, the journey will take you deep within your own Life, as one mom’s curiosity of the times she wanted to push away from, the crazy and chaotic to the completely mundane, were actually bursting full of hidden lessons and even beauty.


This is one mom’s attempt at seeing the bigness contained within the smallness and the beauty hidden within the messiness of it all. Finding the magic, which if we don’t know what we’re looking for, can easily go unnoticed.
