What we're about

Between every two pine trees there is a door leading to a new way of life. ~ John Muir

I am looking forward to co-creating this conscious community of women in Austin that believe we can do more to support each other personally and professionally through awareness, curiosity, and presence. If this resonates with you, we’d love to have you join us as we learn to listen to our own inner wisdom and empower each other through the beauty and wisdom of Nature.

This is a FREE meetup for adult women that will meet regularly for guided reflection, connection and slow to rigorous activities through Austin’s incredible trail systems, in Nature and online during Covid! Nature provides the perfect backdrop to unplug from the hustle, ground into stillness, bask in gratitude and open our minds and hearts to awe, wonder and transcendence. Can you think of a better setting to prioritize self-care, move our bodies, and connect with others and the natural world?

CONSCIOUS COMMUNITY:

Our intention is to build an active, harmonious community of diverse, interesting women by offering meaningful activities in Nature (and online during Covid!) that allow our members to come together to have fun, while nurturing our minds, bodies, and spirits. Our desire is that this investment of time and energy will make it easier for us to open our hearts to forming new friendships that lead to lasting and meaningful relationships. Our goal is that every member feels comfortable and able to become further integrated into the WeWiN community and we welcome participants stepping forward to share their gifts by co-leading events with the community. All members are asked to not post or push promotions or sales pitches in order to promote authentic connection and openness. We further remind all members to keep personal conversations shared at events confidential. All women over 18 are welcome regardless of race, creed, color, religion, sexual orientation, national origin, political affiliation or disability status.

ABOUT YOUR ORGANIZER:

Rhonda spent many years of living two distinct lives; one as a successful business leader in a corporate setting while juggling the challenges raising two sons as a single mother, and one searching for every opportunity to immerse herself and her family in nature to re-charge, whether that be the neighborhood trail system, the most non-commercialized yet accessible beaches or wandering around the vastness of the Blue Ridge Mountains.

In 2017 Rhonda changed that and began integrating the two, doing more and more of her work in nature. https://imaginework.com/nature-coaching/ . She also created and led the co-creation of New Orleans' WeWiN Meetup: https://www.meetup.com/Women-Empowering-Women-in-Nature-WeWiN-New-Orleans/

Kundalini Yoga and Energy Work

Online event

Choice is the path to healing. We may not be able to change the past or erase memories, but you can shift old behavior patterns and decrease the intensity of blind reactions. Learn to embrace change and open yourself to accepting all emotions that come up. Kundalini and energy work help you build self-awareness and create space for you to clear out the old and strengthen good habits. The choice is up to you. With loving kindness, Jes WHAT TO BRING: No experience or equipment necessary. You can wear jammies if you want. You can sit in a chair, on the floor or yoga mat – whatever makes you feel good, comfortable and safe! We do invite you to bring Your beautiful self, hydration, yoga mat or blanket or chair, yoga blocks or props if they are in your practice, tissues for breathwork, and an open mind and heart.

ABOUT YOUR HOST: Jes McCue says that growing up in a small town in south Texas, some of her first meditative experiences were exploring ‘stillness’ in the fresh hay of her family’s farm. She's always been drawn to nature and have also found many hours of bliss in the mountain peaks of Colorado and gentle waves of South Beach. Exploring Austin's many and varied trails help her prepare physically, emotionally, and spiritually for the strains, challenges, and demands of engaged parenting, work and life.
