Samantha Strawbridge Eddy is a writer, editor, and publisher. She’s a lover of long walks in the woods and by the sea, yoga, skiing, poetry, and the resiliency of the human spirit. She’s spent the better half of her life living in the Jackson Hole valley. She’s a mom of three and is passionate about everything that inspires and wakes up her soul and consciousness.
Committed to the belief that feeling good is an inside job, Sam has spent years studying meditation, self-reflection, consciousness expansion, and the dynamic between inspiration and physical vibrancy.
Her personal healing journey has led her to become familiar with many, many alternative healing modalities. Throughout her process, she discovered how difficult it was to find the right thing—whether it be massage, physical therapy, chiropractic care, cranial sacral, acupuncture, melt, energy healing, etc—at the right time. She also discovered that it was difficult to navigate the options and decide what modality was appropriate for what situation.
As a result, she created NewWU: Modern Wellbeing in hopes to make the process easier for others.
NewWU is the offspring of Sam’s earlier endeavors to create space, community and awareness around the wellbeing trifecta of the spirit, mind and body. While many have been aware of the importance of body and mind for achieving good health, Sam is committed to celebrating the essence the human spirit and connecting the dots between our inner world and outer experiences.
From 2011-2016, Sam opened and operated the first metaphysical bookshop and education center in Jackson Hole. Spirit: Books, Gifts, Life, was an intimate store specializing in material and programs to open and expand the mind and heart. During that time, she discovered her community’s desire for easier access to the holistic wellness opportunities in the area.
