Rising McDowell


Rising is a seasonal traveler, dog musher, writer and editor. Her life hit literal rock-bottom when she survived a 40’ fall that left her with a broken neck and multiple surgeries to recover from. In her journey through near-death and debilitating injury, Rising has come to see mindfulness, determination and transparency as the principles that can best lead us in times of crises. Her passion for self-development, healing and the natural world inspires her writing and travels. In her spare time you can find her training sled dogs somewhere in the woods.
