FOUNDER + GUIDE
WELCOME, WILD HUMAN.
I’m Courtney Feider, Founder, Creator + Guide of These Wild Humans.
As we get to know each other, you will get used to the sound of my voice. You will be able to rest in the idea that I am here with you, walking through this with you, every step of the way.
This is a voice-focused guided space so that you can shut out the noise of the world, listen deeply to your internal wisdom, and choose the road you’d like to take to reclaim your sacred energy.
These Wild Humans is a platform that empowers women to come home to themselves, across all areas of their lives.
In this space, through online portals, community, and one-on-one support, women will get reacquainted with their power, without apology. They will bring old wisdoms back into their modern daily lives. These Wild Humans welcomes women into an interconnected mycelium network of supportive, evolving sisters, built on integrity.
This isn’t a space for consumption, it is a space for intentional attention and a soothing audio bath x personal attention for your nervous system. Your experience should only be one of having someone to talk to you, support you, see you, and help you to come home to your inherent wisdom so you can rejuvenate and unlock your true potential across your life.
We are on a mission to reawaken women to their most authentic, empowered selves in mutual reconnection.
Let me explain something. These Wild Humans came to be because I had a need. I was overwhelmed, overworked, not taking care of myself properly, giving all of my time and attention to my clients and my family and friends. It was so much easier to work on the things they were struggling with than to work on myself.
Slowly, I began to feel like I was disappearing. I was always tired. I was depleted. I have spent more than two decades understanding and learning in the natural healing and indigenous wisdom space but I was struggling to apply it to myself.
I finally got honest with myself and recognized that I felt like there was no room. I felt starved for time. Even when I had space, I didn’t feel like I did. The demands of all of the things and people around me left me feeling disconnected from myself, my relationships, and even the safety of my home. I felt worried and anxious. I felt like I could never help enough, but I wouldn’t let anyone help me.
During this discovery process, I also began to acknowledge that many very healthy, empowered, strong, capable women were in the same position I was – excellent at doing for others, and awful at taking their own advice.
I noticed that this was particularly true of women who were mothers or maternal figures, and women working in big corporations or women who own their own businesses.

More About My Background + Work:
I am a Certified Professional Coach with over two decades of experience in creating a connected and socially conscious community that supports people around the world. As a subject matter expert in personal transformation, I have worked with high-performing executives and teams from major corporations, venture capital firms, and boards. My focus is on neuroscience, somatic experiencing, behavior, emotional intelligence, trauma, and grief. In addition to coaching, I am also an herbalist, aromatherapist, and certified massage therapist with specialized training in Traditional Chinese Medicine, Rainforest Medicine, and Celtic Shamanism.
My unique blended professional background has made me a sought-after corporate coach for senior and C-Suite leaders. I have contributed to publications like Forbes, Fast Company, Thrive Global, Entrepreneur, and Huffington Post, and I am a published author of the book “I Heart Creativity” (2017). Through my work with These Wild Humans, I am bringing my life’s work to a much wider audience. I blend the behavioral coaching approach that I offer senior executives with the lifestyle I lead at home.
I live in the Pacific Northwest with my family on an urban micro-farm that includes chickens, vegetable gardens, fruit trees, and a wide variety of culinary and traditional medicinal herbs. I wildcraft most of what we grow into foods, supplements, and medicines. My focus is on helping individuals unlock their wild potential and unleash their true purpose.
