"Keep close to Nature's heart...and break clear away, once in a while, and climb a mountain or spend a week in the woods. Wash your spirit clean." -John Muir
START YOUR ADVENTURE
Wayward Adventures believes that life is meant to be lived. So say "YES" more often! Try new things, explore with abandonment, and be open to the uncertainty of life. Run in the overgrown forests, swim in the sun reflected lakes, climb the snow peaked mountains. Meet new friends, laugh until it hurts, and be a little silly. If you are anything like us, we think life should be fun, authentic, and full of adventure.
What is wayward adventures
Wayward Adventures was founded in 2019 as an integrated Wellness and Advocacy Program for all women. We are active partners with Every Woman Can, a non-profit organization, serving women throughout the 20 counties in the Inland Northwest. Wayward Adventures offers outdoor adventures, healing retreats, and community outreach/education to all women. For every adventure a woman takes with Wayward Adventures, she is not only investing in her own health and wellness, but she also offers a woman who has cancer a second chance at life-as proceeds will go directly to our Cancer and Grief Funds. Wayward Adventures celebrates the heart and healing of the female spirit one story at time. @womenofwayward #findyourwild
INVESTING IN MOMENTS THAT TRULY MATTER
As the founder of Wayward Adventures, I have spent the last 20 years in the Palliative Care and Oncology arena. I have listened to hundreds, literally, thousands of patient stories. Through all the stories there is one reoccurring theme that constantly comes up. It goes something like this: "I wish I would have been the driver in my own life". "I wish I would have taken more risks". "I wish I wasn't so serious". As the years roll on, the faces have changed, but the stories behind them always remain the same. These same sentiments were said the day I held my own mother's hand, as I watched her take her last breath - as a rare and aggressive type of cancer took her own life. It's the echoing voice that sometimes whispers, sometimes screams- "GO LIVE". Our programs are more than thrilling adventures and the relaxing experiences. They are specificity designed to empower, connect, and create mindfulness to what truly matters in our lives. With our eyes open to the impermanence of all things, we begin to see what truly matters in our lives today. Wayward Adventures was born out of the notion to challenge women to start thinking. To start talking. To start doing. So when the final chapter of your life comes to a close, what story will you tell?
