“Two wonderfully fulfilling Full Moon years has, in more ways than one, changed my life! I am more confident and outspoken, more courageous and inspired. Creating and sharing experiences with girls in the woods gave me the opportunity … to extend my boundaries and discover all that I am capable of,” one of our participants, Sydney at 16.
