Anne photo 2013 MerciaAnne Hayden is a wilderness guide, wild land steward, and mentor for those who fish in the depths of nature and psyche. She supports people to follow their own mysterious soul-threads through her intuitive gifts of tracking the underground dream and inviting people to their honest edges with fierce compassion. She has guided soul quests since 1994, training first with the wild land itself, and then with Animas Valley Institute as a soul initiation guide. An on-going student of Process Work, Authentic Movement and embodied dream-work, she has a degree in Ecopsychology and a life-long apprenticeship with the soul poets. Her mystical relationship with nature began in the Colorado mountains as a child and was honed by her years of solitude in the Alaskan backcountry. It continues to source her in her island home in the Pacific Northwest, where she gardens, hikes and backpacks as spiritual practice, and is a “wild granny” to her three grandchildren.

Anne’s essay about her ancestral legacy as a white woman has been recently published (2020) in Whiteness is Not an Ancestor: Essays on Life and Lineage by White Women, edited by Lisa Iversen.


We honor the people––past, present and future––of the Snohomish, Lower Skagit,
S’Klallam, and other Coast Salish Tribes,
upon whose traditional lands we live and work in gratitude.
