Open Heart with Wilderness ✨
By Wilderness Dawn
My name is Wilderness, and this is a place for open hearted conversation. I am a mind/body holistic life coach, and I speak with coaches, therapists, astrologers, doctors, and those in the chronic illness community. This podcast is less centered around a particular topic and more about the theme of coming home to yourself and living from your heart. I speak with people who are being and doing in ways that inspire me. I believe everyone has a story and everyone's story matters. Follow on IG @wildernessdawn or reach out to me through my website wildernessdawn.com. I'd love to hear from you!
