Hello there, beautiful!
When women first hear the words “Softly Wild,” their immediate responses are usually along the lines of “oh, yum!” and “oooh, that sounds like heaven!”
And that’s before I’ve even had a chance to explain what Softly Wild is about.
There’s something about those words—Softly Wild—that touches each woman down deep with a yearning for their own soft wildness. It’s visceral and immediate ~ and damned near universal for every woman I’ve met online or off. This has happened so many times now that I’ve come to expect it. When I dug into it, I realized that Softly Wild taps deeply into an aspect of the sacred feminine that resonates strongly within each of us.
It’s the soft side of the wild woman archetype. No, this is not the crazed wild woman running around berserk through the brambles and howling naked at the full moon ~ nor is she the weak and timid maiden, trembling in the corner in fear and doubt. Rather she embodies a supple strength, deep wisdom, and surety that comes from discovering and embracing the gifts of our instinctual feminine wisdom and wildness. Oh yes…all women have this gorgeous core of soft wildness inside of them.
You do too.
After first hearing the words, “Softly Wild,” several excited questions usually follow. The first is invariably: “So what is it???” (And the unspoken subtext is always…”I want some!”)
Here’s the short answer
Softly Wild is an approach to life, a philosophy, and way of being in the world. It’s a way to connect with your own Softly Wild Spirit and bring it to all you do in your daily life and work. It’s about grounding yourself and your life in your own body, truth, experience, and wisdom ~ and aligning with Nature’s energies and rhythms. You move from there to crafting your daily routines, choices, and actions around it all with gorgeous intention.
Softly Wild is about gifting yourself delicious soft time to explore and play, tend to your spirit, remember who you are, what you value, what you desire, and what you truly need to be happy and well. And at the heart of Softly Wild is an emphasis on reconnecting with Nature regularly ~ both your own innate soft wildness and Mama Nature herself. The result is a renewed daily life filled with joy, creativity, and wonder, despite how madly the world is spinning around you.
Here, let me tell you a little Softly Wild story…
What is the Softly Wild E-Course?
The Softly Wild E-Course is a six-week guided journey to discover and explore your Softly Wild Spirit. Each week we explore a new theme of our lives and Softly Wild Spirits:
Week 1 ~ Soft Entry & Expedition Prep: During the first week, we prepare for the adventure together ~ choosing our Field Notebooks, going over Softly Wild concepts, gathering inspiration, and exploring our own personal magic.
Week 2 ~ The Softly Wild Body: The second week we’ll take our first steps on the path by deliciously re-inhabiting ourselves through sacred embodiment. We explore body devotions, body wisdom, the care and feeding of our softly wild bodies, grounding and centering, and other deliciousness.
Week 3 ~ Nature’s Mysteries & Gifts: This week we’re in sacred explorer mode ~ aligning ourselves with Nature, connecting with our Power Animals, opening to Nature’s messengers, and identifying our own sacred space in nature.
Week 4 ~ The Softly Wild Home: Throughout this week, we focus on our home habitats. We explore ways to make our nest a natural, sacred, and beautiful refuge ~ one that supports us and our dreams, nourishes us, and where we can feel at ease.
Week 5 ~ Your Softly Wild Spirit: During the fifth week, we explore a variety of Softly Wild practices for tuning in to our inner wisdom and intuition…and connecting more deeply with Nature’s mysteries, wisdom, and healing energies.
Week 6 ~ A Softly Wild Life: In this final week of the course, we draw the threads from our journey together. We explore ways to creatively express and honor our Softly Wild Spirit at work and in the world ~ and cultivate practices to keep the magic going after the course ends.
What you receive:
The Softly Wild E-Course has been lovingly and thoughtfully designed so you will get the absolute most out of your time on this journey. And it’s all tied together with a delightful air of adventure and discovery.
The beauty of working through the Softly Wild E-Course with me is that you are guided to craft your own path to suit what resonates the most with you and the life you want to lead. The philosophy and approach simply give you the tools and concepts to help you along the way.
Bottom line: the Softly Wild experience is powerful, sacred, and fun!
How Does it Work?
This isn’t a classroomy kind of course, but rather a journey shared with a circle of other sparkly, soulful women just like you. I deliver rich lessons to you online in the Mojo Lab’s cozy and private learning center four days each week ~ each one designed and written with soul and love. There are a combination of written materials and audio and video recordings to keep things lively throughout.
You receive a new Quest Invitation in every lesson so you can explore the Softly Wild concepts, tools, and practices in your own way and on your own schedule. And there’s a beautiful community aspect to this course too! The Softly Wild sisterhood gathers together in our private Facebook group to share adventures, inspiration, and insights. This our online field camp where we all pitch our virtual tents and gather around the campfire each day to chat, laugh, and support each other along the way. I’m there every class day, posting prompts, sharing inspiration, answering questions, and hanging out with you all in fun conversations.
Is Softly Wild right for you?
Let me start by asking you a question: how do you feel when you hear the words “Softly Wild?” Sit with that for just a moment, close your eyes, and really roll those two words around in your imagination. How does it feel? If you had to name three words to describe what Softly Wild evokes for you, what would they be?
Now ask yourself: Does your current life give you those same feelings? Sit a moment with that. When you consider your days now, how do you feel? Do you feel rushed, anxious, stressed, or exhausted? Or do you feel connected, grounded, confident, and in tune with yourself and the amazing energy of Nature and life around you?
And finally: which would you prefer?
Softly Wild won’t run around your life, cleaning everything up, and instantly removing everything that causes you stress or unhappiness. That’s a lot to ask from six weeks of personal exploration. But what it will do is teach you how to get back into your own skin, your own spirit, your own truth…and connect with your own intuition, inner wisdom, and creativity. Through this course, I provide you with the Softly Wild core concepts, tools, and practices for crafting a true-to-you and soul led approach to life and work. Then all the other bits begin falling into place and the path naturally opens before you with more clarity, ease, and joy. It’s up to you where you go from there.
That’s the Softly Wild Path we explore on this journey
Hopefully, you now have a better idea of what Softly Wild is all about and if this is a journey you’d like to take with me and a circle of soulful sisters like yourself. Will you come walk the Softly Wild Path with us? Oh I do hope you’ll say yes.

“I want to encourage anyone thinking of taking the Softly Wild E-course…TAKE IT! There are so many online courses these days and I have taken more than a few. This course is a life changer! Victoria Smith does such an amazing job of curating and providing inspiring information, resources, and experiences to help you on your journey! If you only take one E-course this season, this is the one to take!” ~ Kimberly Padgett Shaw
“I began my journey thinking it would a fun adventure, a time to explore and maybe learn a new thing or two. All of that did happen, but what I didn’t expect was that Victoria was creating such a beautiful place for us to pause and sit with ourselves, that pure magic would find its way back in my life. That I would reconnect with parts of myself that I had completely forgotten about. My whole life has changed, and I’m not just because I’ve integrated practices I learned during this course, but because this course changed me. The Softly Wild course connected me back into who I am at the deepest parts of my soul, and I go about my life now fully aware and fully knowing who I am. And everything good comes from knowing that: joy, bliss, creativity, confidence.” ~ Sara McCormick (BelladeLuna.com)
