About Maria Souza
Maria is a Mythologist, Poet, Author, and Educator. She holds a postgraduate degree in Ecology and Spirituality and an Advanced Training Certificate in Applied Mythology from Pacifica Graduate Institute.
Maria fell in love with mythology during her studies in the UK in 2015, and since then, she has begun a personal and academic exploration of the topic. She worked for seven years in the Brazilian Amazon with indigenous people and consulted for the UNPFII.
Her book, Wild Daughters, draws from mythology and time-worn tales while illuminating the challenges, dangers, beauty, and reality of the first initiations of a woman’s life. Blending ancient wisdom with contemporary culture, Souza’s writings reflect a woman searching for depth in times of superficial ornaments.
She runs a mentoring program based on Clarissa Pinkola-Estés' Women Who Run With The Wolves and is the creator and host of the Women and Mythology podcast, hosted as part of the Joseph Campbell Foundation's MythMaker℠ Podcast Network.
Maria Souza is presently working towards a post-graduate degree in Comparative Mythology, which she will complete by May 2025.
