We are so excited to officially introduce our guides for Women Rising Wild, 2018!
The 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 Source 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, master medicine weaver, and mystic. She is our fire tender and wild nature guide.
Melissa will be joined again by her partner in creation from last year, Kelly Cooper. Kelly is a vibrant and grounded woman rich with nature’s wisdom. When she is not working with individuals and groups in adventure therapy and wilderness immersion experience she is spending time with her new, adorable, golden doodle puppy or traveling the world. Kelly is a wilderness first responder and survival skills instructor. She will lead JourneyDance and Elemental Yoga on our retreat.
And this year we welcome Shanti Medina! Shanti is an alchemist of sacred sound and sorcerer of transformation. She is the founder of Energize training systems and Body Current® therapeutics supporting personal development and embodied self-realization with every breath. She and her husband recently released their double-CD SoMAntra® with over 150 minutes of healing soundscapes, embodied meditations and ecstatic chanting. Shanti will be sharing ancient practices rooted in sacred sound including shamanic journeying, body-centered mantra meditations, and toning through the body’s energy centers.
Welcome, Kelly and Shanti. We are so blessed to have you as guides and facilitators in our journey with wolves on the landscape of wild woman soul.
