She's juice cleansed, brown rice cleansed, water fasted, colon cleansed, liver flushed, and frozen her eggs.

She's a big believer in what the outside can do to your insides.

She's the anti-guru. Meaning, she'd rather poke herself in the eyes with sharp sticks than have anyone think she wants to be one. 

And she's really good at sorting out the waste of time ones. 

She's run off-trail marathons (slowly), travelled solo through mapless terrain in Patagonia, surfed her way  (and one nose break) across Baja, learned the hard way about surf-leash safety in theTelos Islands, paddled the Broken Group of British Columbia (eating for some reason only Tofudogs), studied language in Chile, Nicaragua, Guatemala, gotten sting-rayed in Costa Rica, open-water swum through the waterways of Kenya (carefully), has gotten lost in more than a few swamps (who cares where, right?), slept under the hanging glaciers in the North Cascades, Ice Climbed the water ice of the  New Hampshire (more carefully), long-distancehiked and climbed her way through the Tetons, the Winds, the Dolomites, the Sierras, the Canyonlands; hopped trains (due to poor planning) instead of hotels through Europe, and nearly found a new boyfriend in the eucalyptus of Tasmania; she's kayaked Andean fjords with the best of friends (smelling like old storm gear), and road tripped anywhere from Beatrix Potter's house to Africa's Great Rift Valley and  good old Highway 80. 

Megan holds a Bachelor’s from Columbia University, a Masters in International Relations from Yale and a licentiate from the Institute of Taoist Education and Acupuncture. She has worked as a mountain instructor for the National Outdoor Leadership School, an NPR ‘All Things Considered’ commentator and a classical acupuncturist in private practice. She’s a trained doula, Zero Balancer, NIA instructor, NCCAOM acupuncturist, Wilderness First Responder, shiatsu practitioner, NASM personal trainer and has completed  advanced yoga teacher trainings with Richard Freeman. 

She resides in a yurt in Wyoming.


This site is meant for anyone who ever got into a jam and was curious what resources outside the familiar might help them through it. For anyone who ever dreamed of growing out of their stuck, tight places, and wondered what nutso sounding, never-before contemplated path might help them become wiser and more resilient instead of what we may fear most – that in the face of those hardest hits life throws down, we’ll curl into a permanent, hugely attractive fetal position never to curl back out of it. It’s for anyone who was ever afraid to face loss - and faced it anyway. This is for you.
