Live the journey, together.

SoulDog Wonder Collective

A community for artists & animal-loving folks inspired to create more wonder in the world.

A call for Creative Wildlings & Wonder Seekers

Join me in the wild between what was and what can be, and we’ll create a new way forward, together.

A New Way Forward.

As an artist and business owner, creating more content that contributes to the cycles of harm that exist within platforms like Instagram and Facebook doesn’t align with the life I want to live, the community I want to foster, or the ways I want the world to experience my work. 

So I’m on a path of reconnecting to my creativity outside of social media, and reimagining what freedom and belonging can look like for me and my community.

But I can’t change the world just by wishing for it, so I’m doing the next best thing I know how. I’m making a new one.

A new space where we can choose to stand together rather than struggle to stand out.

A community to explore the deepest caverns of our creativity.

A place in which to wonder wildly.

And a movement to reclaim our creativity, together.

This is what I hope for, so this is what I’m creating.

If you’re longing for this kind of creative revolution, join me in the wild between what was and what can be. And we’ll create a new way forward, together.

welcome to community. connection. creative revolution.

SoulDog Wonder Collective is made up of two communities:​

Creative Wildlings

Artists & creators inspired by animals.

&

Wonder Seekers

Folks with dogs who want to experience more wonder in their lives.

For Creative Wildlings

Let's create more wonder in the world.

Creative Wildlings are wonder seekers whose calling involves creating more wonder in the world. They are artists, photographers, writers, intuitives, weirdos, creators, visionaries, trailblazers, out-of-the-box thinkers, big-hearted & soulful crafters of art that moves us. Their work comes from the heart, and is inspired by a deep love and admiration for animals, nature, and life.

Creative Wildling memberships start at $29/month.

Some of what’s included for Creative Wildlings:

  • Private spaces to connect within the SoulDog Wonder Collective virtual landscape.
  • Regular prompts of inspiration & creativity.

For Wonder Seekers

Let's live the journey, together.

Wonder Seekers are adventurous souls who know there is so much more to life than just existing. They are ready to discover and experience the wonder in the world with their Soul Dogs by their side. Whether that world is the one around us or within us, they know that to live the journey to its fullest and most wondrous, we must do so, together.

Connection, Creativity, & Wonder

The Wonder Seekers and Creative Wildlings communities are focused on connection, creativity, and wonder. How these things are experienced and expressed through each will be determined by the communities themselves. This is the beauty of creating something new – there are endless possibilities.

Some of the things we have planned for both communities: 

  • Private spaces to connect, share, and create wonder within the SoulDog Wonder Collective virtual landscape on Heartbeat. 
  • Regular prompts of inspiration and creativity from Marika (and other Creative Wildlings).
  • Access to a new version of the SoulDog Journey Project – 52 weekly prompts to capture your Soul Dog journey.
  • Access to the evergreen version of Our Attention Revolution – a 30-day email workshop to support you in reclaiming your attention, creativity, and time from social media. 
  • And more!

"Keep some room in your heart for the unimaginable."

For the Creative Wildlings, we have some extras:

  • Monthly Zoom calls to connect, create, and dream up new ways of creating wonder in the world. And to support one another in our projects and journeys as Creative Wildlings.
  • Live and evergreen workshops to help us do more of what we love, and explore the things we’re curious about in our work. These are held within the community or on Zoom.
  • Collaborative projects where we create from the heart, and share our work with the world in weird and wild (and some familiar) ways.
  • Opportunities for 1:1 mentorship with Marika, your Creative Wildling Wonder Guide.
  • And more!

Hi, I'm Marika.

Photographer | Artist | Creative Wildling

This is my call for creative revolution.

In life. In art. In community.

There was a time when I loved to create and connect through Instagram & Facebook. But over the years as things shifted in those spaces, I found myself feeling more trapped than supported in the machine of content creation and constant distraction. While taking a break from social media in 2022, I began to research more about how these platforms have been designed to keep us watching and scrolling (and addicted to them) for their profit.

As an artist and business owner, creating more content that contributes to this cycle of harm doesn’t align with the life I want to live, the community I want to foster, or the ways I want the world to experience my work. Since summer of 2022, I’ve been on a path of reconnecting to my creativity outside of social media, and reimagining what freedom and belonging can look like for me and my community.

After months of research, experimentation, and reimagining, I’m launching SoulDog Wonder Collective to begin a different way of creating community and connection.

This is my call for creative revolution where we can work together to experience and create more wonder in the world.

If this community feels like a place you’d like to be a part of, I’d love to welcome you.

Join SoulDog Wonder Collective as a Creative Wildling or Wonder Seeker, and we can create more wonder, together.

Let me keep company always with those who say

“Look!” and laugh in astonishment,

and bow their heads.
