Freedom + Connection = Completion
It takes courage to be your most authentic self.
That doesn’t mean you have to do it alone.
It is entirely possible to sweetly (or even bittersweetly) say goodbye to that old self who is no longer serving you. We’re the keepers of the Wild Playground, and we’re here to support your transformation from who you’ve been to who you’ve always been destined to be.
We’re Lola and Tigre, partners in play, love, and life, and we’re living proof of what’s possible when you dare to say YES to your true path and NO to everything else.
Are we perfect? No.
Are we trying to be? Ha! Not anymore.
What we are is real. And the people we are today? We’ve walked through the fire to stand before you as your guides. And we can’t wait to get to know you, dear one.
Clarity + Courage = Alignment
Knowing who we are and living that truth didn’t always go hand-in-hand. We know how hard it can be to let go of old stories, old selves, and no-longer resonant relationships.. It is scary to leave all that behind.
And…. we honor the past selves who’ve walked us to the place we’re at today. Our missteps, practice marriages, and less-than-aligned decisions all contribute to our current, wildly human expressions. We also care for the people we’ll be tomorrow by embracing our most wild, playful, unabashed and sacred selves right now, whoever they may be.
We honor the unknown by assuming today is the only day there is.
YOUR future self will thank you for finding that same courage.
You know there is a more playful, present, adventurous, bravely imperfect version of you, somewhere deep inside.
You’ve always believed in being in the moment. If you’re anything like us, you’ve said “carpe diem” your fair share, or maybe even a sarcastic (or totally serious) “YOLO!”
… And yet, it can be hard to actually embrace the fluidity of life.
You’re already talking the talk. Let us be guiding lights as you start walking the walk.
Who We Were + Who We Are
We absolutely believe in your magic. Yes, YOUR magic!
Are you ready to transform into the wild thing you’re meant to be?
We weave beautiful, inspiring ways for people to let shit go and spin their own dazzling magic into existence.
Our online classes help you amp up what you want and release what you don’t. Our retreats are deeply connective adventures for the soul, body, and spirit. Our co-ed group mentorship is a life-changing annual transformation journey for humans of all genders and backgrounds to dive deeper and play harder.
A lot of folks begin with an online class, like Amplify Intuition, which is a great way to enjoy just a taste of the juiciness we have in store for you.
Come play with us! It just might change your life.*
*It probably, definitely will. And we can’t WAIT to see you fly, you beautiful butterfly-phoenix-hybrid, you!
Hey, I’m Tigre.
In 2011, I made the transition from a desk job to South America where I worked as an organic farmer and studied permaculture. Through my travels and the magic of humble, hard work, my heart softened–– and my mind opened. I discovered that the life I’d been building–– including my first marriage, what I now call my “practice marriage”–– didn’t line up with who I was on the inside. Those choices and the paths they lead me down began to unravel, and my life subsequently began to change.
That’s when I met the love of my life.
Fast forward to today; I’m married to my twin flame (you’ll meet her below), and I get to incorporate all of my greatest passions family, ecology, design, and an insatiable appetite for learning–– into our work here at Wild Playground. When the Wild Playground hat is off, (it’s a well-loved tiger cap, if you care to know, and it’s a regular part of my wardrobe) I get to joyfully put on my husband-dad-homesteader hat (that one’s just metaphorical) in the garden with our kids or cooking up a mean plate of curried scrambled eggs. (And yep–– it’s totally my real name. It’s pronounced “TEE-gray,” though you’re much more likely to find me in a tie-dye tee than a gray one.)
Hi, I’m Lola.
Coincidentally, (but I think rather divinely) about the same time Tigre started to dismantle his life, I was doing the same thing. I’d just given birth to my son, and was questioning who I was, what being a mother was, and whether I could really tell him to “go after his dreams” if I wasn’t pursuing mine. After realizing I had serious work to do, I set out to wholeheartedly discover what brought me joy and listen to what my soul had to say. Eventually, I discovered that the work I needed to do was the opposite of serious––I needed to bring happiness, play, and silliness into my life. This involved a series of challenging choices that were made with so much love, they fueled the blissful path ahead: I said goodbye to my own practice marriage and became a co-parent.
That’s when I found and fell in love with Tigre, and life quickly became an adventure.
Along the way, I embraced my inner witch (which included letting go of the problematic term “shaman,” read more about that HERE), and I believe this to be the reason I’m blessed with such incredible clients, friends, plus a more-connected-than-ever family. Balancing a full-time spiritual business, studies in clinical herbalism, parenting, and relationships is a constant dance… but I wouldn’t have it any other way! It’s my deepest honor to guide people to create their own wild life.
We help you let go of the patterns and habits holding you back. (It’s so much less scary to do this when you’re not alone!)
We’ve got a question for YOU, dear one:
Does who you are on the inside match your life on the outside?
A few years ago, our answer to that question was NO.
That NO was painful (as you know). But, it IS entirely possible to drop your bad habits and (kindly) leave behind mis-aligned choices! We are living proof of what happens when you dare to say YES to your right life and NO to everything else.
Clarity + Courage = Alignment
Though our life isn’t perfect, it IS perfect for us. We have the relationship, community, abundance, and soul work we used to imagine (but didn’t believe were actually possible).
