The Wild Woman
Posted by Anne Wondra
The words of The Wild Woman speak to our spirit. She’s a part of us, of all of us….
This piece of art graces a space I share. And I take a moment to read it again when it beckons. It begins like this:
A healthy woman is much like a wolf—robust, inventive, loyal, fierce.
Yet separation from her wildish nature causes a woman to become meager, ghostly, anxious about leaping, fearful to create new life.
With the wild nature as ally and teacher, we see not through two eyes only, but through the many eyes of intuition. With intuition we are like the starry night, we gaze at the world through a thousand eyes.
The archetype of the Wild Woman carries los bultos, all the bundles for healing and meaning. She carries all the medicines of stories, words, and songs, all the mending tools of dances signs and symbols. She is both vehicle and destination. She is the essence of the female soul….
It is She, the Wild Woman–using the powerfully descriptive, moving eloquence of Clarissa Pinkola Estes–who will be our Muse and Magnificence Inspiration messenger this month.
Mark your calendar for Thursday, March 14, 7 pm (CST). Everyday Goddess Community members will receive their usual reminder with additional details–like a full copy of the Wild Woman clip and access information–via group shortly.
If you’d like to be part of the Wild Woman conversation and connect in a community like this, learn more and make it happen HERE. Welcome!
I so look forward to this call with all of you! Enjoy your day. – Anne
