During 12 weekly meetings, we are going to dwell on the archetypes of the female soul. To guide us on this journey we immerse ourselves in the book Women Who Run With Wolves by Dr Clarissa Pinkola Esthés. Each meeting we will focus on 1 chapter and re-tell the story together and dive into conversation and interpretation of the myths.
Within every woman, there lives a powerful force, filled with good instincts, passionate creativity, and ageless knowing. She is the Wild Woman, who represents the instinctual nature of women. But she is an endangered species. In the book Women Who Run With the Wolves, Dr Clarissa Pinkola Estés unfolds rich intercultural myths, fairy tales, and stories, many from her own family, in order to help women reconnect with the fierce, healthy, visionary attributes of this instinctual nature. Through the stories and commentaries in this remarkable piece, we retrieve, examine, love, and understand the Wild Woman and hold her against our deep psyches as one.
