Meet the Founder: Chris Maddox
“Start a huge, foolish project, like Noah…
it makes absolutely no difference
what people think of you.”
This is my project. It also happens to be my passion, my mission, my muse.
There are few things more troubling than the chronic pain of a life out of alignment with one’s own true nature.
Everything I do here is in service to helping you create a life that is a true reflection of your essence & soul.
We gather in Leadership Training, Workshops & Retreats, the Festival & once a weekish in your inbox.
Together we will turn to the wild for guidance & wisdom. That is: The Wild Within(the inner voice of truth) & The Wild Without (the cycles & qualities of nature itself).
In our time together, I will ask you to go beyond who you’ve been told you “should” be and lovingly guide you to listen to the whispers of your heart (as wild as she may be).
You are a blessing to all of us. What a creative strong beauty you are.
Thank you dearest Heart. In AWE and looking forward to more. This was one of the most meaning-filled events in my life.

Major Influences & Respect
Yoga~A long time student and teacher of yoga, I have learned the to practice prayer, postures(asanas), breath-work (pranayama) and Meditation. The bhakti path of devotion is part of me and her finger prints are all over this work.
The Sufi Path~I am a student of Sufism, the path of the heart, in the tradition of mystic Hazrat Inayat Khan.
Lucid Body~Through apprenticing with Fay Simpson and studying the technique for a decade, I have come to know the many colors and expressions that live in me-it keeps me honest, with a razor sharp eye for seeing the colors and expressions in you.
The Theatre~I grew up in the theatre. And though I didn’t realize until much later, it set the foundation for my life path. Theatre taught me to use my voice & express with clarity & truth, it taught me to be a student of behavior & intention, it taught me about ritual & community, and it was my introduction to the creative process. I am grateful everyday for my theatre-geekdom roots. Oh, and I have a fancy B.F.A in it.
Astrology~When I was 9 years old, I found an astrology book on my father’s shelf. I poured over the pages with a flashlight & fascination to spare. I have never stopped being passionately curious about the stars & our relationship to them. The Symbols, Planets & Archetypes in astrology offer an endless supply of inspiration & understanding patterns and dynamics in life.
Women Who Run with the Wolves by Dr. Clarissa Pinkola Estes~ This is the holy book, the sacred scripture of the Wild Woman Movement, of which this Project is a part. The first time I held this book in my hands, I felt an electricity of its message. I honor this book and come back to it again and again. Long Live La Loba!

She’s been a teacher & healing professional in the world Feminine Spirituality, Yoga & Astrology for years. Her writing has appeared in Elephant Journal, Mind Body Green, Over the Moon Magazine, and many other wellness publications.
An ever-student of religious, philosophical & spiritual mysteries, she is always actively engaged in study.

Chris grew up in the theater: a place where devotion and ritual are inseparable from the ancient roots. This background touches the way she communicates and the dynamic quality of her teaching & offerings.
The spaces she creates for women are interfaith, diverse, sensuous, collaborative, and deeply feminine. These spaces (in trainings, circles, workshops, private sessions & festivals) are often filled with belly laughs, tears & tons of sister support.
Chris is devoted to awakening the feminine on the planet & does so in every way she knows how.
