The Wildroot Parables is a home for nature-based Christians as well as Christianity-adjacent nature folk! It all began as a growing community on Instagram, full of diverse folks who gather in a beautiful Venn diagram of faith, love for the natural world, and an interest in mysticism and poetry. While the author is a Celtic Christian (read more here) and you will find that Christian thought is the foundation for this community, all are welcome of any faith. The only thing required of you to join in is a heart full of grace and curiosity, not afraid to engage with deep topics and open to mystery!
