Softly Wild is a six-week journey for discovering a more soul-centered way of being and doing in your life that feels natural, creative, and nourishing. It’s a path for those who hunger for more meaning, magic, and soft wildness in their days.
Inside of every woman is a Softly Wild Spirit just waiting to be claimed.
She shows the way for deeper connection to our body, senses, intuition, and inner wisdom.
She aligns us with the rhythms, energy, and mystery of the natural world around us.
She is you…vibrant and shining from within.
We live in a constantly on, clamoring, busy-worshiping world that often leaves us feeling stressed, worn out, and disconnected from ourselves. It can cause us to lose touch with who we are and what we even need or want to be happy and thrive. It’s no wonder when we feel overloaded, overstimulated, and overwhelmed so much of the time. It can be hard to remember who we are some days or remember where our path lies when the world is coming on so strong.
Softly Wild helps you to reconnect with your inner wisdom, intuition, and the natural world around you, so you will always know where your true north lies. And that’s where the real magic and adventure begins.
When you feel those connections and can bring them to your life, all sorts of wonderful things start happening. You become more certain of who you are and what’s most important to you. You become more grounded in your own truth, body, and wisdom, and Nature’s energies and rhythms. Your creativity comes alive, and wonder and joy become your traveling companions. And the next steps on your path start opening up with more ease and clarity.
Life is too short to be anything less than who we truly are.

What you receive
An Enchanting Adventure of Discovery & Support
An experience and shared journey rather than a classroomy kind of course. We walk this path together and I’ll be there every step of the way. Consider me your guide and field companion on this spirited expedition.
Beautiful & In-depth Lessons
Rich lessons delivered to you online four days each week, each designed and written with soul and love. Sprinkled throughout are a variety of audio and video recordings to keep things lively. 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. All of the lessons are hosted online here on the Mojo Lab in a private member’s area. It’s cozy, secure, and blissfully away from the fray.
Invitations to Dive Deep
Journaling prompts, guided visualizations and meditations, and a variety of activities to unleash your creativity, intuition, and visioning ~ all designed to let you dive as deep as you desire.
Safe Space & Community
We have a private group on Facebook where the Softly Wild sisterhood will gather together to share our adventures, inspiration, and insights. Consider this our online field camp where we pitch our virtual tents and gather around the campfire each day to chat, laugh, and support each other along the way. And yes, it will be a closed group so only other Softly Wild participants will see our posts.
Sacred Play & Spirited Exploration
Whimsy and playfulness woven through the lessons and exercises. Sacred play (and a touch of magic) is an important part of this adventure. The quests provide form and inspiration for your own reflection, exploration, and discoveries ~ and a variety of creative ways to express your Softly Wild Spirit.
Tools, Practices, & Resources
Introduction to core Softly Wild concepts and an array of essential tools, practices, and resources to help you reconnect with your magic and integrate the lessons into your daily life (and work).
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.
There is a confidence and clarity that come when we reconnect with
our own personal magic and Mama Nature. The path opens in front of us and
we are once again in touch with the mystery and wonder that surrounds
and infuses our lives.
“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
“This course was absolutely a god send to me. I was feeling stuck, uncreative, and fatigued before I took this course. I finished the course with new found passions, ideas, inspiration, and an eagerness to continue on this journey. I feel equipped to take the next stage in my life now that I have a wonderful compilation of tools to assist and nourish my Softly Wild Spirit.” ~ Meagan Reynolds
“I loved this course!! Victoria is a wonderful guide and teacher. I am amazed at how often I access the knowledge I learned in the course. Worth exploring!!” ~ Jessica Butcher (Crowning Elements)
“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)
“Victoria has created something special within this soft and wild place. Before my time with this course I was feeling a bit lost and hopeless. I had been in need of a deeper understanding of nature, the universe, and my place within it. Not only did Softly Wild bring to light many practices that I was craving, but I was also able to find a part of myself that I had forgotten. Victoria has a wonderful gift. Her guidance feels as if being led by a long lost relative and a priestess of light. I highly recommend this course to anyone who may feel left behind on their own path, in need of symbiosis with nature, or long overdue for transformation. I am thrilled to be embracing the soft and the wild way in my life and through my business.” ~ Lauren Dodge (FruitsToTheRoots.com)
“Thank you, Victoria, for crafting such a beautiful, affirming course. I love that my decision to take it has been pivotal in bringing such positive changes to my life and also enhancing the way I now move in the world. I have loved treading this path with Victoria and the wonderful sisterhood she assembled (sometimes tippy toe-ing, sometimes jete-ing) ~ it has felt so supportive.” ~ Joanne
Q&A for the Delightfully Curious
Does the class meet at specific times? No, that’s the beauty of this kind of e-course. New lessons are posted four mornings a week (Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday), so you can do them at whatever time is best for you. We have a private Softly Wild online group where we hang out and share our adventures around the virtual campfire, but there are no specific times we’ll meet there. You can just pop in and participate whenever works best for you.
Will anyone outside of our course be able to see our posts in the Facebook discussion Group? Nope. Our private group is safe space, which means no one outside of our group will see our posts. And yes, the private group part of this is optional, but I encourage everyone to join in since that’s where our community meets (and where the connections, sharing, and support happens).
Are there required course materials? You’ll need email and high speed internet access for the duration of the course. Outside of digital access, you will primarily need a sturdy bound notebook (a hard cover composition book works beautifully for this). This is a key tool we use throughout the course. You’ll be using it to document your adventures, collect inspiration, journal, and do the course exercises. Basic office supplies like tape, a glue stick, scissors, and some magazines for clipping inspiring images will also be needed. We’ll be working with smudging/energy clearing as well, so a small bundle of sage (or sweetgrass) and a candle will be helpful to have on hand.
Why don’t you recommend using a Yahoo or Hotmail email addresses to register for class? Unfortunately, Yahoo an Hotmail email accounts are notorious for screening out emails which are sent to mailing lists before they even make it to your spam folder. When I hear that a student hasn’t received class emails, it’s almost invariably because they have Yahoo or Hotmail accounts, which are screening out the emails and not delivering them. There’s no way to fix that on my end. I highly recommend using a different email address for receiving your course materials. If you don’t already have an alternate email address, you can set up a a free Gmail account in just a few minutes over here.
I’d be delighted to answer them. Please feel free to contact me.
Your Softly Wild Spirit is wise with childlike wonder.
She is gentle with fiery strength.
She is feminine and a little fey.
She is awake with dreams.
She’s you …vibrant and shining from within.
Are you ready to bring more soft wildness to your days?
The path awaits.

I’m Victoria Smith, heart whisperer, magical naturalist, hedge hopper, and the resident wild-wise woman here at the Mojo Lab. I’ll be your field guide and trail companion on this adventure. Before we get started, there are a few things you should probably know about me:
- …in magic, especially the magic we conjure with our creativity and intention.
- …as women we are each gifted with deep inner wisdom, intuition, courage, soft wildness, and a generous dose of creative magic.
- …that the built and natural environment around us (our homes, work spaces, towns, and surrounding landscapes) affect us in profound ways.
- … connecting with the spirit, energy, and rhythms of Nature is not only satisfying and enriching, it is an essential ingredient for a happy life, a healthy mind and body, and a sparkly spirit.
- … the key to a magical, joyful life is in making our choices based on what makes our souls sing, what nourishes our bodies and spirits, and creative expression.
- …it’s never too late (or too soon) to create the magical life we desire.
Yours in magic and joy,
