Wendy Sarno lives and writes in St. Louis, Missouri where she facilitates circles for spiritual deepening, and leads writing groups in the exploration and collecting of individual stories. She has been publishing her reflective essays, poetry and photographs on two blog sites, Writings From Wild Soul and Listening to Stones, for a number of years. She finds the deepest joy in wandering on the wild earth while letting a poem lead to a closer engagement with Mystery and soul. Wendy is mother of two and grandmother of five. She lives and occasionally wanders with her husband Jim Swinehart.
