Maia Toll's Wild Wisdom series -- The Illustrated Herbiary, The Illustrated Bestiary, and The Illustrated Crystallary -- introduced readers to the mystical energy of the animal, vegetable, and mineral kingdoms. In this capstone to the Wild Wisdom series, Maia Toll's Wild Wisdom Companion guides readers in developing a personalised earth-based spiritual practice using rituals, writing prompts, recipes, symbols, and reflections tied to each season.
Organised into 12 chapters - Winter Solstice, Spring Equinox, Summer Solstice, Autumnal Equinox, plus early and late stages of each of the four seasons - the book features seasonal practices; exercises for the body and for writing and reflection; plant, animal, and mineral medicine; and symbolic explorations of the gifts and challenges that arise with seasonal change.
Original illustrations by Kate O'Hara illuminate the symbolic richness of the text, and 28 pop-out oracle cards plus 4 bound-in pocket pages enhance the invitation for readers to use this interactive guide as an ongoing tool for cultivating the sacred in their own lives.
Maia Toll is the author of The Wild Wisdom series which includes The Illustrated Herbiary, The Illustrated Bestiary, and The Illustrated Crystallary.

She leads the annual Witch Camp retreat, and is co-owner of the retail store Herbiary in Asheville.
