A sunset reminds
of the beauty inside
that we sometimes forget
As we move through our lives
Each human on earth
What pain are they concealing?
The wilderness invites us
To try hiking our feelings.

Hiking My Feelings is on a mission to improve community health by creating opportunities for people to experience the healing power of nature. What started as a hashtag in 2018 quickly ballooned into a nationwide wilderness wellness tour, sharing the story of how hiking helped founder Sydney Williams reverse her Type 2 Diabetes and kick her limiting beliefs to the curb. To date they've hosted nearly 200 events around the US and online to encourage folks from all walks of life to get off the couch and onto the trail. While the programming they offer is accessible to everyone, Hiking My Feelings focuses their efforts on three areas impacting community health in the US; supporting survivors of sexual violence, Type 2 Diabetes prevention + management, and exploring the mind-body connection.

About Hiking my Feelings founder, Sydney Williams:
When former collegiate athlete 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 Type 2 Diabetes into remission.
