Connect – Heal – Thrive

Within every woman there is a wild and natural creature, a powerful force, filled with good instincts, passionate creativity, and ageless knowing. Her name is Wild Woman. ~ Clarissa Pinkola Estes


On Wednesday evening for the next 6 weeks (and possibly longer), we will gather in the old way, around a fire, with modern technology from the safety of our homes to connect, heal, and thrive. We will practice the sacred act of council and find stillness together through meaningful connection, movement, and grounding mediation. We call forth Wild Woman into community to tend the fires of compassion, intuition, grounding, and embodied vitality.

Meet our Guides

We are excited to officially introduce our guides for Women Rising Wild, 2018! Our Facilitators have more than 30 combined years of experience in wilderness guiding and they collectively embody a diverse array of wisdom and skills in nature-based therapies; ecology and applied conservation; wilderness survival; yoga, dance, and meditation; subtle body dynamics; wildlife tracking; tantra; rewilding ritual, and wild listening.

jumpcropThe visionary for Women Rising Wild is Melissa Lynn Reed. Melissa is a fourth generation healer and transformational wilderness guide with deep and intimate ties to nature. She is the founder of Wild Heart Revival and she has lived closely with wild canids since childhood. Her guiding and nature therapy work with clients and groups draw upon her 20 years of experience as a wildlife biologist specializing in studies of rare and endangered species. Through the lens of evolutionary behavioral ecology and place-based awareness she provokes attention to connection and our nondual reality. Her offerings blend wild wisdom, ritual, nature-immersion, and mystical sciences for grounded and embodied shifts in consciousness leading to elevated states of wellbeing within individuals and communities. Melissa is a seasoned tracker, medicine weaver, and mystic.

kelly and pupMelissa will be joined again in 2018 by Kelly Cooper. Kelly is a vibrant and grounded woman rich with nature’s wisdom. She holds a MA in Wilderness Therapy from Naropa University and she has facilitated more than 70 wilderness or nature-based events in the past 10 years. Kelly has lived outdoors for a full year in New Zealand, spent three years studying and teaching yoga at Kripalu, and recently spent 21 days on a solo backpacking trip. When Kelly is not traveling the world or working with individuals and groups in adventure therapy or wilderness immersion experience she is spending time with her new, adorable, golden doodle puppy. Kelly also is a wilderness first responder and survival skills instructor.

Darkest Night Wild Woman Hike

Free Event
Darkest Night Wild Woman Hike
December 17, 2017 4-6pm
Boulder, CO

This Sunday is our darkest, longest night of the year. We will gather in the evening to observe the sun and dark moon set together in the west then walk into the north for a gentle 2.7 mile hike among coyotes, mice, and owls and watch the stars come alive to our senses. In the safety of our group container and facilitation on this auspicious night we will provoke experience and awareness of a greater depth of being and universal consciousness on the plains. Meet at Boulder Valley Ranch Trailhead. Please dress warmly!

This hike is led by Melissa Reed, wilderness guide and mentor at Wild Heart Revival and visionary at Women Rising Wild.

On this Wild Woman hike we welcome people of all genders with special care and attention to the feminine aspects within us all.
