The Wilderness that Speaks
with Victoria Loorz
It is Victoria Loorz’s mission to help people not just care for the earth, but to fall in love with it.
What would it look like to move beyond appreciating nature, even past protecting her, to loving her? And realizing, perhaps, that we are already a part of her?

Victoria Loorz is an "eco-spiritual director" and co-founder of the Wild Church Network. Her book, Church of the Wild: How Nature Invites Us into the Sacred is a deeply personal invitation for everyone to re-member themselves back into intimate, sacred relationship with the rest of the living world.
From the book’s prologue:
"This is a story about a land where the trees talk and the waters croon and the people fall in love with birds, who love them back. This is a story about an enchanted forest hiding in plain sight, invisible until, somehow, the veil drops—and what was unseen can suddenly be seen. You may catch a glimpse when you cross the threshold on the far edge of the abandoned field, or when, just for a blinking instant, you notice how the brambles of the blackberry bush connect you to everything..."
