Howl Often is a community of women who inspire each other to get out in nature for self-empowerment. We foster an open-hearted community of women who explore the wild for self-empowerment.
We believe in living fully in our bodies, listening to our heart and living fearlessly and unapologetically as ourselves.
We believe in inclusion of all women, respecting one another and supporting each others pursuits.
We are women who grow, evolve and live wild wherever we may be so we can howl often.
We believe that tuning into nature teaches us lessons to be prepared for whatever life brings while remaining rooted to our core.
Our hikes became more than just a hike. It was a time that we could openly share our lives within natures beauty. We realized that nature had more to offer than just a well-trodden trail. It was healing. It was a time to share our stories, obtain advice and at the end of each wild adventure, we felt refreshed, free and in tune with ourselves.
We wanted to connect with other kindred souls who also ventured in the wild – for the adventure but more importantly, to fill themselves up and feel immense freedom.
We wanted to connect with other women who Howl Often®.
- Embrace diversity
- Teach how nature heals and empowers
- Inclusivity – Howl Often is for everyone
ALEXANDRA GIFFIN, CO-FOUNDER, ADVENTURER
“Howling often means tapping into your intuition in any circumstance where you are not only encouraged, but required to call upon your inner animal and embrace the wild nature that lives within. It is to live fearlessly, and unapologetically as ourselves.”
Ultimately, building Howl Often® became a response from immersing myself in nature. Through many healing moments in the mountains, I felt there was something missing from conversations taking place about women in the outdoors. I wanted to enhance authentic connection and forge a community of like-minded people who have a need to find and rebuild themselves in the wild. My mission was to find a way to create a completely safe space for women to express themselves openly and not feel isolated in their experiences.
CELESTIA HOWE, CO-FOUNDER, ADVENTURER
I’m often found exploring wild empty spaces found on topo maps in all types of elements. I seek adventure and am the gal who adventures off the well trodden trail to search what’s beyond the next peak. When life took a turn, I took solace in nature and found healing, strength and transformation. Starting the Howl Often® community was a way to share what I experienced and to meet other women who must get in the wild to thrive in life. I focus on inspiring the community of Howl Often by sharing their stories, connecting Howlers across the world and sharing my personal adventures. “The wild helps us recharge and reconnect. It gives us the space to howl – to explore the curiosities and beauty of nature and of ourselves – untethered from the hustle of daily life.”
