Print Issue 01
Get lost in a story about our connection to wolves by editor-in-chief Jennifer Haddow, be pulled into the poetic musings of Lorna Crozier, and gain strength from Marnie Woodrow's inspired piece about ice-climber Margot Talbot. You’ll delight in the calm Sue Nielsen finds in a canoe, blush while revelling in Johanna Gohmann's aptly titled "Doing It Outdoors", and wish the wild children well as you trace through Meghan J. Ward's parenting wisdom.
Let your inner wildness roar! These stories are an expression of the way women move in the wild world, following our natural rhythms and coming together in community.
Yachting in the Galápagos Islands
When you think yacht, do you think about rap videos featuring scantily clad women sunning themselves idly for hours under the tropical sun, with margaritas in hand and shirtless men wearing gold chains? (No? Just me?) When I looked at realizing my life-long dream of travelling in the Galapagos Islands, I realized how ideal an…
A Piece of Her Heart
Iceland. As she waited at the boarding gate to return home to Canada, she knew. She would re-enter this land of wonder and beauty; this land with all her rage and tranquility, complexity and contradictions; settled in an unsettled sort of way. A little like herself if she were to be perfectly honest. A piece…
In the Eye of the Tiger
I sat silently in the darkness of the jungle, waiting for a tiger. Doubts flashed through my mind as I questioned the sanity of this situation. Here I was, deep in the forest of Satpura Tiger Reserve in central India, sitting in an open air safari jeep in the middle of the night, hoping for…
Trip of a Lifetime
In August 2016, I went on Wild Women Expedition’s Iceland Golden Circle Horseback Riding Adventure. It was an experience unlike anything I had ever had in my life. It pushed my limits physically, emotionally and mentally. The message playing in my head over and over throughout the entire trip was “Oh my goodness I can’t…
I Fell Into My Soul
How had it taken me 50 years to get back to my roots? How do we get so far away from what matters? I had migrated to the land locked prairies. I spend my childhood summers running wild with my redheaded cousins along my east coast home. I loved the summers where wild horses…
Healing on the Inca Trail
In late 2014 I was diagnosed with a more uncommon type of breast cancer and immediately went through surgery, then months of tests, radiation treatment, and now hormone treatment. As I was coming out of the fog, I came across the Wild Women organization through a mutual business group I belong to, where Jennifer was…
An Open Letter to Life
Dear Life, We haven’t always seen eye-to-eye. Remember that time that you were convinced I should leave my life in the U.K., with my job and my partner and all my dreams, and return to my roots in Toronto? Oh, you don’t remember? Let me remind you. I didn’t want to go back to Toronto….
My Own Pace
I didn’t know how to respond past giving my name when asked to introduce myself that first night at dinner. Everyone else seemed so enthusiastic, confident. They all gave their names and buoyantly told their goals and aspirations for the trip. I remember simply saying my name and that I had run away from home. …
