Who is Sonia Waters?

Creator of Wildself, mother of two, lover of one, wild woman and adventurer at heart. From corporate success highs and deep dark holes, to life in the mountains and flowing rivers. I now offer myself to you as guide in your journey to your Wildself.

I started life in the tussock covered mountains of Lake Tekapo. As a family we moved, we lived like gypsies around the North Island in gold miners’ huts, caravans and houses. Childhood dreams and bare-footed freedom. Then somehow, along with the rest of the world, I was caught in the inherent turbulence of adulthood. When a relationship ended in tears, I moved south, back to the high country; my turangawaewae. I am asked often “why did you move?” “for my love affair with tussock and rock”.

That move was pivotal for me; it was physical, spiritual and soulful. The most transformative aspects were internal. As in the poem on the home page, I have risen from the bottom of the ocean of depression, to the tops of mountains. My inner strength has jumped out of my skin, I have shifted from a life of doing, to one of living and loving. My relationships are magical and deepening every day. Lessons from my inner child, masculine and feminine, experience from years in the wilderness, and my own unique wild self … are gifts I share with you.

And my work? I have an architecture degree, project manager, consultant to contractors to simplify construction. I am mother of two wild young women. Lover of one magical man. I am an ISTA graduate and my most recent transformative learning has been with Janine Ma-Ree, on a nine month Womb Journey centered in the Red Earth Temple of Australia.

I offer myself to you as guide. We will dance, meditate, share and shamanicly move our way through the wilderness. We will hike, walk, play, ride through nature with mindfulness, wildness and connectedness that lets us simply BE nature. We invite the elements in. The journey is physical and metaphysical, hard and soft, light and dark, and filled the with the superpowers of your pure essence.
