Spending Time Where The Magic Happens
I spent the weekend with Juniper Canyon in the field. We Summited Steel Butte- a staple of our field area, and explored the desert. We held group around the campfire. We sang A LOT of early 2000s pop songs. The women showed me how to stay cozy and comfortable at night. We took moments of mindful awareness, and drank in the magic of the wilderness. We laughed and cried and hollered at the night sky. We did some yoga and played on a slackline. But above all, Juniper Canyon clients and staff welcomed me and allowed me to experience first-hand the incredible healing power of the community: Juniper Canyon clients not only brave the wilderness, but they take on their recovery and healing with tenacity. As I experienced this weekend, Juniper Canyon is a program where women truly empower one another and themselves- physically, mentally & emotionally.
