inspired by "Women Who Run With the Wolves" by Dr. Clarissa Pikola-Estes
We elicit the Wildish Self through specific questions, and through examining tales, legends, and mythos. Most times we are able, over time, to find the guiding myth or fairy-tale that contains all the instruction a woman needs for her current psychic development. These stories comprise a woman’s soul drama...
No matter which culture a woman is influenced, she understands the words wild and woman, intuitively. The memory is of our absolute, undeniable, and irrevocable kinship with the wild feminine.”
It is our brush with the wild nature that drives us not to limit our conversations to humans, not to limit our splendid movements to dance floors nor our ears only to music made by human-made instruments, nor our eyes to “taught” beauty, nor our bodies to approved sensations, nor our minds to those things we all agree upon already.
All of these stories present the knife of insight, the flame of the passionate life, the breath to speak what one knows, the courage to stand what one see’s without looking away, the fragrance of the wild soul.
Whether you are an introvert or extrovert, a woman-loving woman, a man-loving woman, or a God-loving woman, or all of the above: Whether you are possessed of a simple heart or the ambitions of an Amazon, whether you are trying to make it to the top or just make it through tomorrow, whether you be spicy or somber, regal or rough-shed -the Wild Woman belongs to you.
She belongs to all of us.
