Sophie Steiner is a Wild!er who embodied the Fierce Grace born when we engage impermanence and the practices of nonviolence. She lived her life to the fullest even while having cancer, and walked her journey profoundly. She died on August 30, 2013 at the age of 15, leaving big tracks for all of us to follow.
In Sophie Steiner’s honor, we have set up the Fierce Grace Fund to ensure that youth living with life threatening illness and/or their siblings will be able to attend a Revolutions Retreat or Quest with Play in the Wild!. Click here to learn more.
