Darkest Night Wild Woman Hike
December 17, 2017 4-6pm
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.
