Virtual Campfire with Hiking My Feelings

June 9 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm PDT


This event is a fundraiser* for the Hiking My Feelings Wilderness Wellness Center. Our goal is to raise $30,000 for the first phase of construction, which will include a 24-foot geodesic dome on a 32’x32’ deck and several areas for overnight guests to set up a tent. The Dome will serve as the hub for all of our programming; online education, in-person workshops and retreats, and basecamp for local hikes and backpacking trips. Entirely off-grid, The Dome is the prototype for future structures; solar and wind-powered, with a composting toilet and water catchment system. We are thrilled to be building the Center at the Reggae Ranch, which is nestled on nine acres in the Cuyamaca Mountains, located an hour east of San Diego. The Reggae Ranch is dedicated to local and traveling artists as a retreat from the hustle & bustle of the city and tour life, and is a unique venue for private events.

*NOTE: We are a 501(c)3 non-profit organization and contributions are tax-deductible to the extent allowed by law.



Campfires, amirite? Lighting the fire and gathering with friends is the perfect end to the day. Each evening, starting at 5pm PT, we are gathering virtually to bring together some of our favorite storytellers – speakers, spoken word artists, musicians, live art, comedians and more. We do this in the spirit of inspiration, intention, and integration – three things we’re kind of obsessed with here at Hiking My Feelings.

We’ll open each evening with a warm welcome and a toast to you, our community of donors who share our vision for the future. Sydney will kick us off by reading a chapter from her book, Hiking My Feelings: Stepping into the Healing Power of Nature. After Story Time with Sydney, it’s time for a campfire chat with a special guest whose work, art, or lived experience ties into the themes present in the chapter. Then, it’s time for a live performance from one of our favorite artists. We’ll close out the evening by introducing you to a member of the Hiking My Feelings Family and facilitating a Group Gratitude Circle where donors on the Zoom meeting can share what they’re grateful for.


Mantra: I am committed to building a life I don’t want to escape from.
