Our human psyches possess astonishing resources that wait within us, but we might not even know they exist until we discover how to access them and cultivate their powers, their untapped potentials and depths. Bill Plotkin's book Wild Mind identifies these resources--which he calls the four facets of the Self, or the four dimensions of our innate human wholeness--and also the four sets of fragmented or wounded subpersonalities that form during childhood. Rather than proposing ways to eliminate our subpersonalities (which is not possible) or to beat them into submission, Plotkin describes how to cultivate the four facets of the Self and discover the gifts of our subpersonalities. The key to reclaiming our original wholeness is not merely to suppress psychological symptoms, recover from addictions and trauma, or manage stress but rather to fully embody our multifaceted wild minds, commit ourselves to the largest, soul-infused story we're capable of living, and serve the greater Earth community.
Bill Plotkin is the author of Soulcraft, Nature and the human soul, and his most recent book Wild Mind. He founded Colorado’s Animas Valley Institute more than thirty years ago and has guided thousands through nature-based initiatory passages, including a contemporary adaptation of the pan-cultural vision fast.
