Back in April I announced an idea for a second Winne trip. I knew that the Brave was a creative home for me, and I longed for another Brave journey. But I also knew that this time I didn't want the trip to be about me. I didn't want it to be just a sight-seeing trip, or a personal growth trip like it was for my first one. So I had the idea to travel around and interview cool ladies doing amazing things and create a podcast. I was really excited about the idea, but I also felt like something was sort of off about it, for me. I couldn't figure out how to make the project really resonate with me, it was like I was working against the flow trying to get the project going. I had planned on leaving on the trip about this time of year, but time kept slipping by and the project kept getting pushed back.
I knew that I wanted to connect with more women beyond the Pacific Northwest, but that everyone who wanted to do a shoot traveling to me wouldn't always feasible. But with the Brave, I'm mobile. I could go TO people. So starting at the end of January I'm hopping in the Brave with Kristina (the loveliest redhead who you've seen on this here blog plenty of time. My soul sister and luscious goddess) and driving down the West Coast of the US leading Wildbride retreats along the way. We have retreats scheduled for the Oregon Coast, Northern California Redwoods, Joshua Tree, and Sedona!
Also, I have big dreams for taking Wildbride even further than the Winne can go. I'm traveling to Paris Dec 1- 5, and New Orleans Dec 29-31, and while I don't have time to put together full retreats for those trips, I would love to do Wildbride shoots while I'm there! If anyone is local to Paris/New Orleans or happens to be there while I am, please email me and let's chat! I'm also dreaming of Ireland, Iceland, and beyond for 2016! But for now here are the confirmed Wildbride Retreats:
Oregon Coast | Manzanita, OR Jan 29-31, 2016 (only 2 spots left!)
Redwoods | Mendocino, CA Feb 12-14
