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.
