Welcome, dear soul. Perhaps there is a reason…
The ♡ of The Wild Woman Project
The Wild Woman Project is at once a philosophy (an invigorating approach to life as a wondrous, often messy, creative project) & a growing movement of courageous, creative, heart centered (often weird & wonderful) women on a mission to remember, to reimagine what it means to be a woman – untamed.
At the heart of this Project are the Wild Woman Project Circles.
Each trained facilitator guides her circle at New Moon time. In circle we explore a new theme each month via Creative Visualization, Journaling, Sharing & Ritual. Each and every New Moon, women all over the world, walk out of circle with a powerful & specific intention for her life- an intention that came from the depths of her own heart, through the conduit of the circle journey.
This beautiful practice is a dose of sacred ceremony & heart felt strategy that has the power to transform the life of each woman who takes the journey. Here at The Wild Woman Project, we have seen the most awe-inspiring transformations happen as a result of this special practice, especially amongst our Circle Leaders.
- Inner Knowing & Guidance steadily increase – no more hiding from what we know to be true.
- Relationships with Women become tender, sisterly, supportive & deeply loving.
- Awareness of the livingness of everything that is increases.
- Our unique paths become clearer & clearer.
- We become courageous & full of heart.
Each Circle is a co-creation between the Circle Leader & the Project itself. Each month we have a collective theme & visualization based on the astrological placement of the New Moon. Each Circle Leader then creates her circle space & ritual, in her own way, with her own wisdom & instincts. In this way, we stand side by side as a global community, Circle Leaders are Wild (unique in their expression) and deeply connected to the Sisterhood leaders.

Hear from women who have taken this journey…
I knew that I wanted to do The Wild Woman Project Circle Leader Training after my Wild Woman Workshop experience with Chris. She holds space so beautifully and I wanted to learn HOW to guide a group that way.
The training was so interactive, and also independent. I told Chris how awesome it was to watch the videos on my own time, separate from the group, while still feeling like she was talking directly to me and that I was a part of something special.
Since starting my own circle in Houston I have realized how valuable this training/offering circles is to my teaching and experience of my community. I have created a space for myself and others to gather for inquiry, sharing, vulnerability and expression that is wholly unique.
I also have a much deeper sense of ritual in my regular yoga classes. I am grateful to Chris, and would recommend this training to anyone.Stacey Ramsower
I deeply enjoyed going through the Wild Woman Circle Leader Training. I definitely feel confident going out to lead New Moon Circles now.
The content is deep, and both transformational and very practical. Every aspect you need to know is covered from leading a visualization, to building your tribe, to astrology.
I would highly encourage any woman who feels called to this work to do the training with Chris. She is amazing and I am deeply grateful for this work.Keeley Tompkins
As a result of taking the course, I have been able to connect with the wild woman within myself and nurture my feminine, creative spirit. Also, I have gained clarity on the kind of circle gathering I want to create – all the fun, soulful ways to hold sacred space. Chris is an amazing teacher and model of feminine leadership. She is warm, encouraging and knowledgeable. The information, materials, and resources alone are worth the course, even if you don’t hold a moon circle. But after taking this course, you will want to.
I recommend this course for anyone who wants to reconnect to their wild woman, create space for others to do so, and join an amazing community of supportive, creative and heart-centered women.Karla Hampton
Gathering in circle with other women has been one of the deepest joys in my life for years now.
I have been lucky to have some truly stellar circle-leaders, and I have always admired their ability to create and hold sacred space. I had the idea that it was something I would like to do in service to my community, but could not quite see getting from my “here” to that “there”. But feeling the call, I jumped in with both feet to the Wild Woman Circle Leader training. In following Chris for these past seven weeks and connecting with my sisters across the country (and beyond!) as we studied this sacred work, I have found so much encouragement, inspiration, and I have been given as well the practical tools to undertake the journey.
The process has been a total joy from start to finish. Now that I am on the other side of this training, the “there” is wonderfully within my reach, and I am so ready and excited to start leading my circles and holding space for the women in my community. I feel supported, and I know that I am part of a network of amazing women doing this work.Leslie Frame Crowley
Chris is a beautiful Wild Soul and through her soulful guidance she leads you through all the aspects of leadership from understanding the Moon and Astrology, to understanding your authentic self and building your tribe.You walk away empowered and inspired.
The Wild Woman Project Circle Leader Training was an amazing journey for me…the experience of deepening my connection to my Wildness…my wise, loving, brave authentic self through Chris’s leadership and the support from connecting with women from all round the world was a gift. I highly recommend every woman that is called to stepping into leading Women Circles to take the leap and explore their Wildness with Chris.Alluryn
I feel so incredibly blessed to be able to participate in The Wild Woman Project Circle Leader Training.
It was so amazing to learn, share and be inspired by all the women who participated. I feel like this experience is just the beginning of my journey to continue to manifest my most authentic self and support others in doing the same. Chris is an amazing healer and teacher. I feel so grateful to have found this amazing community.Kelly Plater
I’m going to be honest, I hesitated to sign up for The Wild Woman Project Circle Leader Training, questioned whether or not the value of the teachings were going to justify the cost of the course, (Canadian dollars not doing so great!). But I can say without doubt, what I received from this course was invaluable.
Chris places before you the path to being a circle leader, one who can hold space, in a way that truly instills confidence and is in a sense fool proof. Her lessons in vulnerability really hit home for me, I finally realized it’s not about being the know it all, stand on a pedestal, teacher. Holding space in circle is about being a leader, a guide, and what you have to offer is enough!Colleen Reid
The past 7 weeks have been nothing short of transformational.
My heart, my mind, and my eyes have been opened to the magic of the soul, to the importance of vulnerability in human connection, and connection to self. I will never be the same again!Suzette West
You know how when you stumble upon a restaurant, have one of the best meals of your life, and next thing you know, not only are you telling everyone about it, but you want to go back and try everything else? Well, that’s kind of how it was for me when I stumbled upon Wild Woman Fest. My soul ate, drank and ate some more, and walked away completely satiated. But at the same time yearning for the next feast.
I am so glad that I decided to take The Wild Woman Circle Leader Training. Chris and the other Circle trainees made me feel so loved, inspired and supported these past 7 weeks and I’m kinda sad that it is over already. I am excited to start my own circles and help bring out The Wild Woman to the gals of my community.Dee Bowman
I would follow Chris into the darkness. She guided us with vulnerability, openness, humor, and honesty from the inside out. She is a courageous leader and a humble servant to The Wild Woman Project.
During the Circle Leader Training I learned from her example as well as her thoughtful teachings–which were dug from the depths of experience, honest inquiry, and love. I am filled with gratitude for the opportunity to experience this training alongside women from all over the world–witnessing each of their perspectives added deeper learning and inspiration to the journey. There is magic here. The end of training leaves me feeling empowered to step onto the path of this form of leadership–and now I can empower other women to do the same!Maya Mortman
The Wild Woman Project Circle Leader Training has been so valuable to me, and such a gift in service of the awakening feminine.
I am so grateful for the platform that Chris has created, so that we may all share the blessings of being in circle and sharing ourselves authentically, for our own healing and for the collective. I think that so many women are called to facilitate this type of container and the wisdom and guidance that Chris shares is priceless.
I have come out of this training with the tools that I need to feel confident in creating a comprehensive circle experience, and the on-going support after graduation keeps me feeling connected to the greater circle of women across the country and beyond. I know that together we are healing ourselves, our mothers and grandmothers, and both directions generationally. We are remembering the sacred circle. Thank you!Lindsay Paige

Neona C. Autumn
The Wild Woman Project Circle Leader Training has been an amazing experience overall. Every lessons was extremely well planned and thoughtful. The content was very rich and provided me direction to explore deeper if desired. The lessons provided an amazing foundation and skills to enable me to facilitate a successful Circle with confidence. I have found that the structure of the New Moon Circles which Chris has built really is applicable to other group facilitated events, meetings, etc.. I greatly appreciated the flexbility the web-based learning provided. I was able to very easily follow along and feel a part of each lesson or circle even when I was unable to attend a live call. Chris is one amazing woman!
The Wild Woman Project Circle Leader Training has provided me more confidence, knowledge, and inner wisdom. Throughout the process I have felt held in a safe, loving environment by my sisters and Chris. A beautiful experience I will cherish forever!
The Wild Woman Project Leadership training was an amazing journey. I felt safe and supported from the moment that I signed up and that feeling continued the whole time through. Chris has many amazing talents and the way she facilitates this process is flawless. I remember thinking numerous times, ‘Damn. She’s good!’ I would recommend this process to anyone looking to embrace their Wild Woman or leader within.
Chris Maddox offers a gem of heart based wisdom and ingeniously organized personal and leadership training. I feel that I’ve grown and have been deeply nourished in The Wild Woman Project Circle Leader Training, in ways some of which I still have to discover. Feeling excited and confident to lead my first circle and to grow with this beautiful community
Chris you teach with patience, understating, empathy and love, your leadership is modest, but powerful, your thoughts and words are so naturally well placed. I leave this course filled up and fueled with an abundance of new knowledge, and hope. In a month where globally it fells like things are falling apart, this course gave me security and an awakening; I fell blessed to have had this sacred space and your wisdom Chris during this uncertain time.
We’re a phenomenal team of women on this planet, and I have been gifted beautiful tools to empower and connect deeper to women in my community but also globally. Like the women who have accompanied me on this journey the connection was strong and familiar – connection has no boundaries. It was magical to see this during the training, how all our energies are connected from all different corners of the earth.
Although this journey has come to an end, I am so thankful to have been guided to this course and to have had the courage to show up and be part of it. But, the biggest thanks goes to you Chris, because you have been nothing short of sensationally inspiring! Your mission of The Wild Woman Project is felt strongly in my heart and soul and will continue to grow…. Maybe everything is falling apart, but actually falling into place.
So much gratitude to you Chris for the project and community you have created. The Wild Woman Project Circle Leader Training is truly a journey of self discovery rich with exploration and insights into one’s self, and the structure and content of this program are far beyond anything else I have experienced. You have given us a solid foundation on which to build with such spaciousness and invitation for one’s personal expression. Of particular delight to me during this process was your authentic self and voice shining through in everything you offered. In a world where we are seeing the necessary rise of the feminine, it is refreshing to see that embodied in a compassionately balanced way, free of ego and anger. I walk away feeling excited and empowered to create my Wild Woman community and so grateful to be a part of the greater collective!
The Wild Woman Project Circle Leader Training has truly shifted my being; physically, emotionally, and spiritually. To come together with women who are supporting one another and are genuinely interested in connecting to other women not just across the states, but internationally was really powerful. Chris shares her knowledge in a way that is beautifully sequenced and formatted so you can digest, at your own pace, giving you an opportunity to really process all her amazing content.
The Wild Woman Project Circle Leader Training has been absolutely incredible. I knew with every fiber of my being this is where I needed to be, this was the next step on my light working journey. With Chris Maddox’s gentle, graceful, loving, infinitely wise guidance, I am now confidently and effectively leading powerful meditation and visualizations with clients and I have new tools which have not only been a game changer in my work, but have catapulted me to my next level, and in doing so elevated others to theirs. The recordings of this training will be something I continue coming back to over and over and over again. In just these short 7 weeks, Chris has become one of my most treasured mentors. I am infinitely grateful and honored to be able to lead Wild Woman Project Circles in my community. And the journey continues.. Thank you SO MUCH Chris. You are a magnificent being on this planet. So grateful for your light.
I learned so much from Chris in the The Wild Woman Circle Leader Training. Chris is amazing. Her heart is open and she allows you to experience circle from that beautiful heart centered space w/ in her & you. I now feel confident moving forward & leading my own circles. I am also very grateful for all the beautiful woman in training who I grew with & learned from. Chris’s vision for the Wild Woman Project is beautiful! The circles will nurture strength of spirit in women everywhere & I am so grateful to be a part of it.
