DashielleDashielle Vawter is a Coach, Singer/Songwriter, Minister, Wilderness Quest and Mountain Guide. After a profound heart opening/spiritual awakening in 2008 she jumped off the nonprofit path, took on a personal spiritual practice and began exploring what it meant to lead with her heart. It’s been a wild ride through political campaigns, teaching art to kids, working on a local food documentary, studying Earth-based ways of prayer with the Center for Sacred Studies, starting and stopping grad school, running a backpacking company, living a semi-nomadic life for several years, and much more. She founded Illumin in 2014 as a hub for coaching, teaching, and getting people into the wild to connect with each other and the Earth. She is currently traveling, offering workshops, and working on her first album of original songs.
