My name is Alissa. I founded We Are Wildness in 2011 as a passion project. After struggling with depression and anxiety for many years, I found Nature connection and living closer to the land to be instrumental in my healing process. My hope upon starting WAW was to create an avenue with which to inspire people to reconnect, protect and preserve both their intrinsic wildness and the wildness of the greater earth organism.
I'm so grateful to all the wild ones who have supported WAW and been part of our challenges and community for the past 10 years. 🙏
2022 will be a year of trying new things. We've just launched a new Nature practice called The Wildness Way that we have available as an ebook on this page. ✨🌲
If you've enjoyed the creations and Nature vibes I've created through We Are Wildness, please consider supporting my work with a coffee or two. We also have a membership if you'd like to up your support and get some perks! I appreciate your support! 😊
Founder, We Are Wildness
P.S. I look forward to connecting with you here, on social, in our groups, or by email.
Alissa (she/her) loves wandering through the trails of her local woodlands seeking birdsong and keepsakes. She is passionate about helping people remember the child-like inner wildness that we all have. She’s a quiet neurodivergent, naturalist, birder, artist, and eco-feminist; who feels an ardent connection to those feathered, finned, and furred. She relishes regular time in solitude to nourish spirit and feels most at home in the rivers and forests of the Pacific Northwest.
