I am a poet, writer, nature lover, transpersonal psychotherapist, and an intuitive practitioner. My interests lie in the human psyche, transformation, nature spirituality, spiritual self-awareness, earth-based spiritual practice, Scotland and UK travel, emotions and magic. I write about an intuitive way of living, intuitive magical practice, nature spirituality and soul relationship with the land.
Writing to me is an organic unfolding relationship between parts of myself, nature, the world and lives of others around me. From a childhood in Siberia and immersive life and experiences with nature and magic, to being exposed to intense emotions of love and loss at a tender age, to being an English graduate in Oxford followed by working with books in the UK publishing industry for over twenty years, to psychotherapy training, spiritual awakening and my first encounter with my Soul land, Scotland. Here I am incorporating all elements of my life experience into my writing: poetry, non-fiction and fiction.
All my writing projects and ideas come to me either intuitively in line with what needs to manifest in my experience at that time or spring directly from an experience, either present or past, wanting to speak out into the world. My life is centred around intuition and when I am called, I go, I act. Over the years I have learnt that ignoring the inner voice only prolongs the process, as things that matter will not go away and will continue to come up. Might as well embrace the gold that rises from the soul, so to speak, and do something creative with it. I trust that inner knowing completely.
This chapbook was born out of my profound spiritual relationship with Scotland. Poems flowed through and out of me in a ready form wanting to be heard and written down. It has been a highly intuitive, aligned, emotional, personal, unique and passionate project for me over the last two years. Now the book is here and I am full of gratitude and immense joy.
Being a fan of poetry and also Scotland… (I live here) I had to read Soul Land.
Perfect for anyone who is after a quick read, who wants to find some peace and tranquil and who loves poetry and nature.
This poetry collection really was a love letter to Scotland and how the author feels about Scotland. There was some beautiful imagery and wonderful phrases that painted a picture of the wildness and beauty of Scotland.
I did really enjoy the poems and language, but wished it was a little longer. I would have loved to read more since I did feel it was a bit short. Still, a lot of the images inspired by her words were wonderful and definitely make you feel like you can see the landscape she’s describing.
I have just picked up a copy of Soul Land and just the first poem gave me shivers. That’s powerful and emotional. I am looking forward to reading more. Great work.

The book was a gift and is such a beautiful and lovely read. Brave, raw, honest. It got to me… I could not stop thinking about Scotland for days after. As I also love Scotland it resonated deeply with me and touched my soul. Powerful words.
As an avid reader of poetry, I found this collection to be completely different from anything I’d previously read. This was my first time experiencing transpersonal poetry and at the very talented hands of Natalia Clarke, I’ve found it a most enjoyable one!
I’ve read a decent amount of poetry, especially in the last couple of months, and Soul Land was very unique from all the others I’ve read. I really enjoyed how descriptive the poems were and the beautiful picture the author painted with each poem.
Calming nature poetry about Scotland that will make you want to pick up a walking stick and wander through Scotland’s beautiful landscape and relax your spirit.
Thanks so much for sending me a copy of your book!
I love your introduction and I can feel how much Scotland touches your soul through your words! I’m truly honoured that my painting connects with that feeling!
I love how you write! You write the way I feel!
Congratulations on your book and your poems are simply beautiful!!

Soul Land spoke to me and my love of Scotland. The pictures that Natalia Clarke’s poems paint in my eye made me long for a trip out into the Highlands.
LITERARY MAGAZINE/PRESS COVERAGE:
INTUITIVE MAGIC PRACTICE published by JOHN HUNT Publishing/Moon Books is a result of my coming home to a practice of witchcraft that got reawakened in a powerful way and when I began to unrevel the way I wanted to be with it. Intuition was my way! Comes out in April 2021.
NATURE THERAPY WALKS was a collaboration with Cortney Cameron, who found me through my blog and asked me to contribute to the project. It was a delight to produce contributions on sensory activities for this unique book. A new edition has been released in winter 2020 and is the main textbook for a popular Nature Therapy course
“I love this book! I am enjoying the activities very much. The book is set up in an easy to use format, clear concise and thought provoking. That being said, the author brings in the beauty and complexity of nature, written in a beautiful poetic fashion. I have purchased the deck as well. I am planning on ordering this book for my nieces and nephews for Christmas presents. (Ann, USA) “
“These experiences you have guided readers through are wonderful journeys of self-exploration and connection with the natural world.”
Dr. Selene Kumin Vega, licensed psychotherapist in CA, faculty at Saybrook University
“A unique approach to improving your relationship to nature and your life through the timeless archetypes found in the wisdom of the tarot. The beautiful images enchant your imagination and lead you to explore the animals and elements described in the readings. This deck gently introduces you to exercises with plants, rocks, animals and elements in a safe way to escape the confines of the office and house, even with a busy lifestyle. Most outdoor exercises can even be done with children. A boost to anyone who wants to connect on a deeper level with our planet and those creatures with whom we share it.”
Ariann Thomas, author of Healing Family Patterns and Changing Your Genetic Heritage
“This is amazing. Totally what we need for what is happening now – people are not getting out into nature enough anymore and this shows why and how they should. I used to be a preschool teacher and have my early childhood education diploma, and I could also see this being used by children and their families and preschools. I also teach kids yoga and could see yoga teachers using these to theme classes or make yoga activities or games using the cards and book.”
Juliane Nowe, Founder of LadyNowe, Holistic Health Coach, Yoga Instructor
“This is like meditation, releasing, cleansing and being one with nature, all in one! A great way for families to interact with each other, to create memories, learn, educate and find peace all at the same time. Being in nature as a means of improving your health is becoming more popular nowadays and I think this is a fun way for people to get started! You learn the importance of the world we live in and its natural elements, while being able to be one with our natural habitat and environment.”
