Time & Location

Eugene, Eugene, OR, USA
About the Event
Spending time in the wilderness is one of the most powerful and transformational adventures we can experience. Once outside the realm of daily life, Mother Nature opens up to us in ways we never could have imagined.
Wild Moon backpacking trips are an opportunity to experience the magic of being in the wilderness and in a community of a women* rooted in the desire to know more – about oneself, the natural world, and the connection between the two.
This trip is designed as a beginner trip for participants to build confidence in their ability to travel and live outdoors.
The trip also include discussions and activities centered around the themes of the four phases of our moon cycles. During the trip, participants will explore the full cycle of the moon and menstrual phases for a comprehensive picture of the phase energies and how they influence us on a daily basis.
On this trip, we will:
- Connect with the land through the practice of nature connection, sit spots, and plant communication
- Connect with our inner power through the practice of menstrual cycle and moon cycle awareness
- Learn how we can work with our natural energy cycles, rather than fighting against them
- Learn all the skills you need to become a confident backpacker so you can step into wilderness whenever you want – using backcountry stoves, water filtration, setting up bear hangs for food storage, and navigation
Dates: Sept. 20th-24th, Location TBA (depends on how the wildfires/smoke shape up for the season!)
Includes transportation to the trailhead from Eugene & group dinners

The nitty-gritty: If this is your first backpacking trip (or one of your first backpacking trips)...don't worry about logistics - I have been guiding trips for over 10 years, and will be sending out thorough preparation info ahead of time about gear, food, how to pack, physical preparation, etc. and you can be in touch with me via phone or email as well with any concerns! If you would like to go over any concerns before you sign up, just email me at email@example.com, or submit the contact form from the website.
Please note: These trips do require the ability to carry a heavy pack (~30 lbs.) on your back for 2-7 miles per day. If you have questions or concerns about this and are unsure about signing up, please send us an email and we would love to talk with you to help you make your decision! If you’re already a veteran backpacker…you’re still welcome! The content we present goes beyond just backpacking skills and hanging with a community of women in the wilderness is always an awesome experience! Just know that the pace of the trip will be at beginner level.
*Anyone who identifies as a woman or menstruator is welcome!
