HIKING MY FEELINGS: INNER WILDERNESS w/ Desert Institute at Joshua Tree National Park
Do you want to “recalibrate” yourself after a year of pandemic isolation?

How can we draw inspiration from the natural world to better manage stress, emotions, and mindfulness? What is possible when we get intentional about our time spent in the desert and equate the outer wilderness with our inner wilderness?

Join Sydney Williams, author and founder of Hiking My Feelings, for a weekend of wilderness wellness at Joshua Tree National Park. Through hiking, mindfulness activities, self-reflection practices, and community connection, participants can look forward to unearthing a connection to themselves, each other, and the world around them. Sydney’s proven framework for tapping into the healing power of nature will empower you to build resilience, self-trust, compassion, and empathy. Integrating the skills learned in the park into your daily life back at home will help reduce stress, improve your mindset, and help you feel connected to something bigger than yourself.

About the Instructor: When former collegiate athlete and competitive skydiver Sydney Williams unexpectedly found herself on the receiving end of a Type 2 diabetes diagnosis while grappling with unresolved trauma from a decades-old sexual assault, she set out on a mission: turn her pain into power. Two hikes across Catalina Island and 80 miles later, she founded Hiking My Feelings® to help others tap into the mind-body connection and healing power of nature that helped kick her self-limiting beliefs and disease into remission.

With more than 12 years of marketing experience with Fortune 500 companies and emerging brands, Sydney uses her “truth juice” storytelling style to break wide-open tough conversations with practical, powerful content and experiences. Over the years, she’s been featured on the SXSW stage and in Health Magazine, Diabetic Living Magazine, Huffington Post, Psychology Today, US News & World Report, and numerous other publications. Today, she is the author of Hiking My Feelings: Stepping Into the Healing Power of Nature and travels across the country, empowering others to summit their personal mountains on their way to becoming Well Beings.
