soma earth



soma earth was originally a holistic, architectural design company, founded by Eco Architect, Ingrid Cryns, in 2006 – 2016, that focused on sustainability, connecting the health of the body and environment to building  in our everyday lives.  As a heart-centred, sustainable living mentor and builder, Ingrid teaches through seminars and workshops.

Ingrid, no longer offers architectural design drawings through soma earth.  She is focused on the teaching mandate in Wild Earth Wisdom, to empower people to shift, grow a healthier consciousnesses as well as how to live and build more naturally.

At Wild Earth Wisdom, we listen deeply to what your needs and wants are as you describe your dream visions to us.  We also can hear the unspoken desires or even possibly blocks and restrictions that you may not be aware of, help you to identify them and find resourceful ways to move through them.  We can assist you to navigate through the complexities of manifesting your project to create the most ideal balance for a safe, healthy environment that will sustain you through the growing earth changes.


Although we have a rare and unique specialty in straw bale, natural building construction, we also are very familiar with a wider range of gentle impact, low carbon footprint and lowest embodied energy building materials and systems that can be found locally. We can teach you the best ways to renovate an existing building to become more energy efficient and sustainable.
