Welcome, dear sacred wild one.
We are so humbled and honored that your path has led here.
This website has a vast canopy of topics. So if you don’t know where to start, simply scroll to the end of the page and dip your roots into something nourishing.
The spiritual journey is much like a winding path through a thick forest.
In order to make it through that mystical and dark forest, we must use both discernment and instinct.
We must be fierce, courageous, and connected to both our logic and intuition – just like the wolf.
Contrary to popular belief, the spiritual path isn’t all love, light, and rainbows all the time. Yes, the spiritual path can be radiant, beautiful, and illuminating. But it can also be riddled with traps, baits, and monsters lurking everywhere, masquerading as nurturing food or transcendent beings of light.
Our website is about helping you to see through the misty veils of delusion and deception so epidemic on this winding path – both within yourself, others, and the world at large.
Our aim is to help you reconnect to your inner wolf – that wild and fierce source of wisdom, clarity, and strength within you that will help guide your steps as you walk this perilous path.
We believe that true spiritual growth is about the crumbling away of untruth and the willingness to see through the masks of pretense shrouding our True Nature.
Here are the core principles that guide our lives and this website:
- Walk your own path
- Be true to yourself
- Be a rebel
- Be passionate and sincere
- Fiercely seek truth
- Know and accept yourself
- Find balance
- Reconnect with your Soul
“Go the path less traveled”
Our mission is to help you embrace the path of the inner lone wolf and listen to your soul’s calling. Your inner wolf is your inner guardian, protector, warrior, and primal source of instinct, intuition, and insight. S/he is the fire within you that voyages courageously into the unknown, fights for freedom, and respects your true self. For this reason, the inner wolf is the ideal symbol of the wild, powerful, and liberated human spirit. It is this empowered force of nature within you that we strive to help you embody and rediscover within yourself.
When it comes to the content we put out, our goal is to provide a grounded and balanced perspective of spirituality that doesn’t bypass the raw, real, and messy aspects of spiritual growth or psychological development. We are deeply drawn to exploring and exposing both the light and shadow side of human nature and spirituality. Like the spirit of the wolf, we do not back away from the shadows, but we shred them apart until the light comes through. We strive towards integration, balance, wholeness, and embracing both the sacred and wild aspects of being human.
Who Are We?
Our names are Aletheia Luna and Mateo Sol and we’re the creators and authors of this website. After consciously uniting on 11.11.11, we created lonerwolf in July 2012 and have been nurturing it ever since.
We’re spiritual counselors and mentors who blend a mixture of psychological and spiritual insight throughout our writings and offerings. We believe in the value of teaching a down-to-earth approach to spirituality. Our work has been described as refreshingly pragmatic, illuminating and life-changing. To date, we have written about life, death, and everything in-between.
Meaning Behind “Lonerwolf”
Playing on the phrase “lone wolf,” lonerwolf is a name that signifies the journey away from the pack, and the quest for truth, freedom, and wholeness. The lone wolf was chosen as a symbol of strength, braveness, authenticity, and free thought. It represents the path least traveled.
Spiritually, the wolf signifies instinct, compassion, intelligence, courage, and freedom.
Psychologically, the lone wolf signifies what Joseph Campbell famously referred to as “the Hero’s Journey” which is where we leave the known world to voyage into the unknown realm. This call to adventure usually manifests itself in the form of a life crisis, spiritual awakening or Dark Night of the Soul that we must carry out alone.

Being a lone wolf requires courage – it requires leaving behind everything you have ever known in order to find more meaning, purpose, and fulfillment in your life. It requires being willing to see through the mists of deception. It means using both logic and intuition. It means embracing both your wild humanity and sacred divinity.
While we must all complete this journey through the forest alone, we can still take solace in the love, support, and wisdom of those that have gone before us, and those who are also journeying alongside us at this very moment.
We hope that we can share this winding journey through the thick forest with you.
Lots of love,
Luna & Sol
