About the Author

Ren Hurst is an author, mentor, tracker, and guide helping people address the trauma of domestication. After 20 years of being a professional horsewoman, Ren produced a body of work called Sanctuary13 to help people restore connection to their most authentic, wild human animal nature. Ren lives in the Pacific Northwest.


"Transformation has a sound, and it's the voice of Ren Hurst weaving words of wisdom back into the wild flute of our collective spine. Through gorgeous storytelling, Ren explores the devastation of domestication through rewilding experiences with animals. The Wisdom of Wildness reanimates deep inner passion for freedom, creation, and the embodied miracle of undomesticated life. This book is an invitation to feel it all AND cultivate lives of sanctuary!"-- "Amy Tuttle, wilderness and threshold guide, council facilitator, and arts and healing practitioner"
"A brave and inspiring story that urges us to reclaim the innate wildness within. Ren's 13 principles reflect her dedication to unconditional love and are a foundation for a new, wild, and true relationship not just with the animals we care for but with our authentic animal human selves."-- "Fay Johnstone, shamanic herbalist, Reiki teacher, and author of Plant Spirit Reiki and Plants That S"
"The Wisdom of Wildness is a brilliant journey of self-discovery. The magic in applying Sanctuary13 principles takes one deeper than imagined to be the conduit of light for oneself while interacting with all of creation, particularly being a conscious human walking the earth. Ren has an uncanny ability to invite the reader into their own infinite and innate wisdom if they are willing to embrace not only the divinity of who they are but the humanness as well. The magical words within this book will invite you to that place of what true self-love is."-- "Franny Harcey, HTCP, Healing Touch certified practitioner and intuitive"
"Who do we really want to be in this precious lifetime? Wanting is the first step; getting there amid the many pressures of modern life also takes know-how. Through her many years of experience and experiment to reveal what gets in the way of her own relationships with humans and animals, Ren is now able to offer us a pathway of 13 principles of intention and attention as an essential guide for transformation--what has been for her can now be available for each person willing to commit to such a journey of connection--a connection with oneself and with one another. The Wisdom of Wildness is an invitation to embark on a journey inward. For this life quest, these pages become a manual of guidance, as an elder companion would--being there alongside to help prepare, inspire, and support the call to journey deeper than before. Let these become your 13 agreements toward a life well lived. And in so doing, your life as a human being on this earth will meet your soul's birthright."-- "Krystyna Jurzykowski, council carrier, wilderness guide, cofounder of Fossil Rim Wildlife Center, an"
"Ren Hurst has to be one of the most influential and visionary humans I've had the pleasure of encountering. Our conversations have continued to blow my crown chakra right open--and anyone who reads her books are bound to have their belief systems rattled in the most beautiful way. Ren delicately walks our egos through a complete transformation with her ideas on domestication, and those seeking to walk a path toward enlightenment will surely find that within her words."-- "Brittany Quagan, M.S., LPC, licensed professional counselor and spiritual healer"
