In April, I will be starting a blog, twitter and facebook based book study for women on ....."Women Who Run With Wolves" by Clarissa Pinkola Estes. This is such a profound and life changing book, that offers wisdom, insight and love. I want to share it with my fellow Diva's. I have put a link to purchase it through my bookstore....but, look online for used copies, kindle editions or check it out at your local library. This is a DEEPLY spiritual book....that honors what is tough, smart an untamed in women. It embraces the strong feminine spirit that is innate in all of us.
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. For though the gifts of wildish nature belong to us at birth, society's attempt to "civilize" us into rigid roles has muffled the deep, life giving messages of our own souls. In "Women Who Run With Wolves", Dr. Estes 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 book, we retrieve, examine, love and understand the Wild Woman. and hold her against our deep psyches as one who is both magic and medicine. Dr. Estes has created a new lexicon for describing the female psyche. Fertile and life giving, it is a psychology of women in the TRUEST sense, a knowing of the soul!
I am looking forward to sharing this empowerment with you all.....here is the link: It cost less than two Starbucks Lattes and it will free you~ Enjoy! Study starts on the Primitive Diva fan page on April 1st, 2011!
