   Book Signing           Sunday Meet Sydney Williams      March 8th

                     Author of 

Hiking My Feelings       2pm-4pm

                                     Have you ever spoken unkindly of yourself? Do you even realize                                                     when you do? Are you ready to make changes but find yourself                                                         completely paralyzed by the choices in front of you? We live in a                                                       hyper-connected, "always on" world, and frankly, it's exhausting.                                                       Let's make time to disconnect from the distractions and reconnect                                                     with yourself.

                                                     Hiking My Feelings: Stepping into the Healing Power of Nature is

                                                   more than a collection of trail tales - it's a guide to aid (or begin!)                                                         your healing journey, helping you to do the work to step up into                                                         the best version of yourself. Over the course of our lives, not only                                                     do we pick up our own trauma, we carry things from others - their                                                     fears, their insecurities and their expectations for how we should live our lives. So many of us are wandering through life wearing an invisible backpack full of those things, and it can be heavy. The weight of the stuff we are silently carrying is killing us slowly. We as individuals, and every level of our communities are affected by trauma. When we don't get help, unresolved trauma manifests as mental and physical disease. Join Sydney Williams as she unpacks her "trauma pack", sharing the story of how hiking helped her reconnect to, and heal, her mind and body - kicking her limiting beliefs and Type 2 Diabetes to the curb in the process.


About the Author

  When former collegiate athelete 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.

  Having more than 12 years of marketing experience with Fortune 500 companies and emerging brands, Sydney serves up her "truth juice" style of storytelling to break wide open tough conversations with practical, powerful content and experiences. Over the years, she's been featured on the SXSW stage, as well as, in Huffington Post, Psychology today, US News & World Report, and numerous other publications. Today, she is 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.
