Please join us and our guest, Sydney Williams, for a show on Hiking Your Feelings: Blazing a Trail to Self-Love. Too many of us don't know what to do with our feelings. We stuff them, ignore them, drown them, or find a way not to experience them at all, which usually results in disaster on a physical, emotional, mental, or financial level. The answer: Why not try hiking your feelings? That's what Sydney Williams did, and it transformed her life. Sydney has become a passionate advocate for wellness through the wilderness. Her book is a call-to-action for anyone ready to confront their emotional baggage and find healing in the great outdoors. Sydney explains how hiking became not just a physical activity that changed her body chemistry but also a pathway to emotional freedom and self-love.

When Sydney unexpectedly found herself diagnosed with type 2 diabetes while grappling with grief and unresolved trauma built up over a decade, she set out on a quest to turn her pain into power. Two hikes across Catalina Island and 80 miles later, she learned to disconnect from distractions and reconnect with herself, all through the power of nature. Sydney is the founder of Hiking My Feelings®, a nonprofit dedicated to the healing power of nature. She has 15+ years of marketing experience and is a former competitive skydiver. She has been featured in HuffPost, Psychology Today, U.S. News & World Report, and on the SXSW stage. She is also a certified Wilderness First Responder, an instructor at the Desert Institute at Joshua Tree National Park, an instructor at the Field Institute at Sequoia National Park, and a founding member of the Outdoorist Oath. Sydney has been nominated for Woman of the Year by San Diego Magazine. Learn more at https://HikingMyFeelings.org.
