About

The story of Wild Woman Wellness Center

In 2015, two women with big hearts and an idea met serendipitously and connected over the shared desire to bring healing and connection to other women and the community. In May, they started their first Red Tent on the New Moon. Women from all over NH came. Tent events included a gentle meditation, open dialogue, acceptance, love, and a warm, welcoming atmosphere. The gatherings provided the time and space to be seen, be heard, be understood and be supported. They were a safe time to share what was on your heart, knowing it would be received without judgment. There was the opportunity to connect with others and create deep and lasting friendships. They continued this monthly event until the demand grew so fully that they needed to offer Full Moon tents as well.

In August, their small idea had blossomed so beautifully that they knew they needed a home for it. So many of the members coming had gifts and passions to share, and they could use a home as well where they could also share their talents with the world. With open hearts and shaking knees, the two women decided to open a wellness center. In November, they found a space in Franklin, NH. It was a large open room with big windows, wood floors and brick walls in an old mill building. The space was lovely and they got to work. They cleaned, scrubbed, painted, decorated, and filled it with love. It was time.

They opened on December 5, 2015. Their idea grew. Their shared dream continued to manifest before their eyes. They loved offering the New Moon and Full Moon Red Tents and expanded to add small business networking opportunities, doula services, a thriving body positivity group, reiki, Women’s Healing Arts classes, intuitive services like tarot and mediumship, homeschool groups and activities for children, and partnered with other practitioners to offer painting events, fitness and movement classes for children and adults, yoga, massage and various events and workshops of all kinds. Eventually they realized that they had out-grown this beautiful space they had blossomed in. One room did not offer the space they needed to continue to meet everyone’s needs. The two women began their search again.

In August of 2016, one magical year after their idea for a holistic wellness center was born, they found the perfect space in Chichester NH. In Chichester, the two women and their many clients, friends and Red Tent Members would have a shorter distance to travel. They would be much closer to Concord and Manchester and the many lovely towns in the area. The space offered one large, beautiful room for yoga, events, gatherings and fitness classes along with a separate office space offering room for massage, Reiki, consultations, and a storefront for local artists.

The two women are SO excited to continue to bring healing to the community in all of its various forms, and they are so thrilled, grateful, and honored to be walking this path and sharing the journey with all of the wonderful people they have met so far They are so looking forward to all of the wonderful people they will continue to meet and connect with!

Crowdfunding: As a small business owned by two entrepreneur moms with young families, start up costs can be expensive. There will be first month’s rent, security deposit, a few small renovations, a new floor for the yoga studio and, of course, supplies and product. The large gathering/fitness room will need flooring and that room as well as the office spaces will need to be painted. In addition to the gathering room, there will be a lobby/store front with a massage/reiki room, a sitting area, bathroom and consultation/class room. We would also love to add a few personal touches to the space through seating, additional décor and offering desired products to our community (such as the much requested and exclusive Wild Woman Wellness Center bumper stickers, shirts and etc., crystals, tarot decks, incense, yoni eggs and other herbal health, holistic and metaphysical offerings which have been asked for.)

Amber and Carolyn are two strong and independent women. We love to problem solve and find solutions on our own, but it has been suggested by many that we allow others to help. As this is a shared resource and community center, it belongs to ALL of our clients in some way. We want everyone who walks through the door to take pride in the space and feel at home. This dream may have started between us, but it has grown and evolved to touch so many lives. This is a beautiful opportunity for a move and the additional space, which we need to allow us to continue to grow, blossom and not only touch, but transform so many more lives. So we come to you, our community, our friends, our family, our sisters and brothers:

If this dream resonates in your heart and you feel called and are able to do so, we humbly put this out to you if you would like to contribute in some way. Every bit helps and counts towards this dream which has so changed our lives and changed many of your lives as well. We welcome and gratefully receive monetary donations as well as donations of time and energy for cleaning and renovating/painting the space. Please let us know if you are able to do so and we will keep you updated on dates. We would be grateful for area rugs, décor items and furniture which you may not need or may not be using at this time as a loan or donation. We also welcome you to fill our shop with your created products (art, jewelry, crafts, trinkets, handcrafted goodies, etc. There is no space rental fee but there is a 30% commission on sales). In terms of furniture, décor and products/creations – we do have limited space so we will have to carefully select the items which match our energy and brand. We thank you for your understanding.

We have built our business on love. We have grown our dream by giving back to our groups, clients and community. Reaching out in this way takes bravery and courage on our behalves and we assure you we do so humbly and with much gratitude and appreciation. We would like to offer gifts to each person who opts to contribute to this shared dream in some way. Every person who donates monetarily through this campaign, no matter how small - because every bit counts - or who donates their time, energy or item/s will be entered in a raffle to win one of several special gift certificates which will be redeemable in our new space. Please see the 'rewards' tab for other gifts of gratitude.

Risks and challenges

Our biggest concern with growing into our new space was the increase we will see in our monthly rental obligation. To ensure we will be able to comfortably take care of all of our expenses we started by finding a space that includes heat, hot water, and electricity. We have also created space sharing contracts for our key practitioners to sign. This guarantees them a specific number of hours in the space each month, and makes them responsible for a certain amount of the rent. We have also found 5 new practitioners who will be joining our team once we move to the new space. We will continue searching for practitioners who compliment our team, and expanding upon the services we offer.
