guiding women towards healing,
transformation & expansion

About image
When I first heard the words "Creatrix" many months ago I had an immediate spark of excitement and a deep resonance within my bones. A "Creatrix" is defined in the dictionary as a female who produces, creates and brings forth. It is a word that has been used since at least the 1600's. The "Creatrix" knows that the years you have left to live are less than those you've already lived. Such awareness helps me get on with defining and living my ideal life. She is the witness that holds the lamp to illuminate the path the younger women behind her will travel. For me, "Creatrix" expresses the fullness of who I am and what to do. I am 'She' that creates - in manifest forms. A word that feels at once enchanting, mystical, powerful, and slightly mischievous!

"I am creating a life, I love" is my mantra and I am in the archetype "Enchantress" life phase of the Divine Feminine which challenges us to find those gifts of age and hard-won wisdom we have so well earned. I love walking in the forest which soothes my soul, gives me answers to my life questions as I connect to the healing, stress-reducing beauty of the North Woods. Inner Wild Woman Studio is located in Ely, a small town in northern Minnesota, that is a dot on the map right under the border of Canada in the Boundary Waters Canoe area. I manifested the idea of finding a home with studio space that offers a safe, sacred space for women to gather, find healing, feel emboldened, inspired and encouraged. My studio is my sanctuary, a self-portrait of my soul and reflects all the things I love and all the things I am. Stepping into my studio feels like entering a sacred creative wonderland, where time moves at a different pace, inspiration is never ending, and anything is possible. In my studio I inhale deeply, while infusing my aromatherapy blends, I am free to explore, to chase that winding path of imagination and creativity. Some kind of alchemy stirs within me as I let myself get lost in the dream, I transcend the endless bustle of modern life and am free to simply be.

I am grateful for my life experiences and the wisdom I have gained that allows me to help in my life's purpose of guiding women in their healing process and teaching them about the tools available to aid in their journey. I've been able to say goodbye to, to accept and peacefully conclude my 'yesterday', in order to be able to live today. In experiencing compassion and forgiveness meant I could embrace myself. This wild, dark, painful but infinitely healing and peace-centered journey to the origins of my Self, gave me inner trust. I had to acknowledge and trust that love always heals in its own mysterious ways. The map of self-knowledge leads us into unknown territory. It's worth being courageous and trusting ourselves into uncertainty. Our stories can be rewritten.

I am working on building a sisterhood in my community as I am called to pass on my wisdom of being a teacher and healer to others. I want to empower women to follow their life journeys with a renewed sense of purpose and love for themselves.

I welcome you to participate in the Sacred Women's Circles and a wide variety of mind, body and spirit workshop topics I will be facilitating in 2024. For more specifics on each event click on EVENTS. I encourage you to add a whole emotional wellness level to your practice and my goal is to educate you on topics that inspire you to improve your well-being. Optimal wellness includes caring for the 'whole' self, creating a healthy environment, appreciating nature and being grateful for the basic pleasures of life. I teach how to live by the lunar cycles, using essential oils to enhance and balance emotional and physical aspects of your life, balancing the chakras, vibrational energy healing, crystal healing, flower essences, ecstatic dance, sacred practices, manifestation (I have proven it works!) and many others that will nourish your mind, body and soul.

I love this quote by Jan Porter, "One woman is a tiny divine spark in a timeless sisterhood tapestry collective; All of us are Wild Women."

Blessings.

Sacred Women's Circles

I welcome you to join in on the Sacred Ceremonies I will be facilitating throughout the year that will give pause of our roles and responsibilities and allow ourselves the space to slow down and simply BE. Attending a Women's Circle can awake something deep inside you. It is a space where women come together and sit in a Sacred Circle created with the intention of making women feel seen, safe, heard, held and witnessed on their journey through life. You'll learn to channel positive energies, meditate, share stories, laugh, heal and empower yourself and the women around you by participating in a Circle. A sacred space free of judgement, competition, expectation, pressure or noise. A sacred space void of the demands of the outside world, a space just for us, to go inwards, to reconnect, to return home. A refuge for the spirit of the feminine and to embrace the divine feminine within us.

Why is the Winter Solstice so powerful? The Winter Solstice is one of the most powerful points of the year when the axis of the Earth pauses, shifts and moves in the opposite direction. For three days around the solstice points we may physically, mentally and spiritually experience this stand still and shift of direction. The Winter Solstice is a time to set the tone for the new year and remind yourself of what you hope to accomplish. This night is considered the seasonal dark night of the soul. Spiritually, it's a time to honor both the light and the darkness that resides within each of us.

My intuition spoke loudly to me when I saw the book title, "Release Your Inner Wild" by Dana Mahon, that I had to read more. I had already selected the name of my business a couple of years earlier and knew I had to have the book for obvious reasons. It arrived in the mail, I read the first few pages and the words INSTANTLY resonated with me! They were the exact reasons why I chose my business name! After devouring the book contents I felt compelled to share the wisdom I gained with other women. Registration includes the workshop, cacao beverage + lunch afterwards to connect with other women.

To honor National Monarch Butterfly day I will be facilitating a monarch butterfly painting class. Each year on the first Saturday in May, National Start Seeing Monarchs Day raises awareness to preserve the Monarch butterfly and prevent it from being added to the endangered species list. The butterfly effect rests on the notion that the world is deeply interconnected, such that one small occurrence can influence a much larger complex system.

August's Sturgeon Supermoon is a time for all of us to take a step back and really appreciate everything. Supermoons occur because the Moon has a slightly elliptical orbit around earth. So there is a point every single month when it is at its closest to our planet and thus looks slightly larger in the sky. Join in on this Full Moon Women's Circle to express gratitude for the bounties of nature, and appreciate the fruits of all seasons and the unique beauties of the cycles of life. This will be one of two Supermoons in 2023. There will also be a full blue moon on Wednesday August 30th at 8:35 PM. It will be the second of two Supermoons in 2023. The second August Full Moon will be the full moon in Pisces. This moon is called a full blue moon because it’s the second full moon in a calendar month. It could also be referred to as a super blue moon because the second August Full Moon will also be a Supermoon.

The simple act of using a signature scent perfume you've created for yourself can be an act of self-care. Create a rollerball scent that will always be associated with you! Our sense of smell is the most direct way in which our emotions can be triggered. Once we have discovered that certain essences make us feel good and can actually enhance our sense of well-being, we can blend them into a perfume so the subtle aroma can be with us everyday. At one time, every perfume would have been skillfully blended from the finest essential oils, and were an indulgence on the psyche and on the purse. Today, perfumes created in a lab have become more synthetic. Essential oils can be used to create a natural alternative to traditional perfumes. Essential oil-based perfumes are easy to make, and the number of combinations you can create is nearly limitless! You can use essential oils from flowers to make feminine, floral scents, or essential oils from trees to make woodsy and musky scents, and so on. Or you can mix and match different types of oils in unique combinations to create your own “signature scent!”

To manifest is to co-create with an energy greater than you. By connecting to this Divine energy, we call in what we desire. Imagine that you hold in your hands the power to change your reality - that you are capable of creating your highest vision and desire. A Manifestation ritual is a process of bringing your ideas, concepts, visions, and dreams from your inner world into your outer world, so you can enjoy it with your physical body. What you might not realize is that you manifest things all the time without even thinking about it. Look around you. Everything in your surroundings was once a thought in your head before it manifested into your reality. Your home, your business, the meals you cook, your clients, your partner, the trips you go on, events you attend - you manifested all of it! You combined a vision with action and manifested that vision into a reality!

January's full moon, known the Wolf Moon, is named as such because of legends from long ago. It's thought that January's full moon came to be known as the Wolf Moon because wolves were more likely to be heard howling at this time, as a way to mark territory, hunt, and find other pack members. The full moon represents a time to harvest your intentions that have been set and making sure they materialize. This moon comes in the dead of winter and is a time for transformation and introspection. This is a great time to reflect on your goals for this year and what you want to improve in your life. It is a time of figuring out what you need in order to have a successful life. It's also a time of seeing what's missing and finding truth in what you long for. It's about sacrifice and finding personal truth and discovering your purpose and how it relates to the bigger picture and society as a whole.

What is Ecstatic Dance? It's a type of sacred movement that helps women connect to their bodies and feel into their primal selves. You don't need to know how to dance as the powerful music is KEY to allow us to move. I LOVE ecstatic dance! Every culture in the world has had some sort of dance component to their culture so it is appropriate to say that as women, we have a natural call to dance, move and shake. It is in our bones to move and flow to a beat, and women LOVE to express this! Join me in enjoying a beautiful fall evening by the fire, listening to the beat of the music, letting go and feeling free!

The Harvest Full Moon represents a chance to embrace new opportunities, create goals for yourself, and manifest your own destiny. This moon allows you to carefully curate new beginnings by leaving behind any negative habits or practices that no longer serve you. This full moon has been a starting point for many individuals to amplify their energy, reclaim their callings, and release anything blocking their own inner light path from shining. Post Harvest Moon, the moon wanes. This process from a full to waning moon is symbolic of the opening and closing of chapters in your life. Join the September Women's Circle and we release and manifest away! So, what have you been harvesting? What is ripe and ready? What needs to be pruned to allow for continued growth?

Join in on this Snow Moon Women's Circle that will be full of staggering spiritual revelation and purpose. This moon signifies renewal in the spirit. The snow moon gives people a chance to reset and reevaluate. It's about new dreams and overcoming past hurts, forging forward with a greater sense of purpose. February is a very chilly month, but one for building cozy relationships and having a brighter outlook.

January's full moon, known the Wolf Moon, is named as such because of legends from long ago. It's thought that January's full moon came to be known as the Wolf Moon because wolves were more likely to be heard howling at this time, as a way to mark territory, hunt, and find other pack members. The full moon represents a time to harvest your intentions that have been set and making sure they materialize. This moon comes in the dead of winter and is a time for transformation and introspection. This is a great time to reflect on your goals for this year and what you want to improve in your life. It is a time of figuring out what you need in order to have a successful life. It's also a time of seeing what's missing and finding truth in what you long for. It's about sacrifice and finding personal truth and discovering your purpose and how it relates to the bigger picture and society as a whole.

What happens during the Women's Circles?

I facilitate each Circle so participants can relax into a safe and well-held space. 
Each circle follows a similar format with up to 6-10 participants depending on if held inside or outside.
  • Opening the Circle with a Blessing
  • Guided Visualization (to help us relax and drop out of our busy mind and into our body/heart)
  • Sharing (you can choose to share what is present for you in your life and what sense are you making of it)
  • Wisdom Sharing/Reflection (we share what is relevant to what has come up in the Circle)
  • Closing the Circle

What are my Guiding Principals for my Women's Circles?

Empowerment - Each participant is encouraged and supported to take responsibility for themselves and their actions.
Integrity - There is transparency and honesty in all that is said and done.
Trust - Built on honoring commitments to ourselves.
Acceptance - Allow for different experiences and interpretations without holding judgement.
Love/Nurturing - I encourage communication and support.
Choice - Respect our own choices and the choices of others.
Authenticity - Allow ourselves to courageously speak our truths at all times.
Respect - Creating loving boundaries for ourselves and valuing the rights of others.
Adventure - Setting intentions and trusting the process as it unfolds.

What are the benefits of an Aromatherapy Consultation?

Maybe you are trying essential oil therapies for the first time, and unsure which oils will be effective for specific conditions?
If you've asked or wondered any of the following:
How do you know if you'll like what the oils smell like?
Should you inhale them, put them on your skin, in a bath or shower, or should you ever ingest them?
How much of the oil is enough, how much is too much?
How do I best dilute essential oils, and to what ratio?
What do I do if there's an undesired response?

Like any therapist, I want to help you be safe and have a great outcome. To accomplish that, it's important for me to review your health history, understand any underlying conditions, and learn what your scent preferences are and how YOU respond to each oil. 
At the heart of my practice as an aromatherapist are essential oils, which are core tools for supporting health and wellness, as well as treating imbalances and pathophysiological manifestations.

In addition to the aromatherapy consultation, are there additional costs for the product recommended?

Yes, when I discuss treatment essential oil blend options after our consultation, I will provide pricing of the products recommended. This cost includes the essential oils, ingredients and product packaging.

For the workshops using essential oils and materials, the supplies cost is included in the registration fee. This is indicated on the EVENT ticket section under more info.

Our sense of smell is deeply connected to our emotions, memories, and overall mental health. When we inhale an aroma, scent molecules travel through the nose and stimulate the olfactory nerve, which communicates directly with the limbic system – the part of the brain that regulates emotions and memory. This makes our sense of smell a powerful pathway for influencing our moods, stress levels, and even depression and anxiety symptoms.

As scared as we were, it was fun to face our fear. The rush we got from overcoming that fear was empowering, like we had looked into the actual realm of spirits and faced a real danger, coming out triumphant!

This article was written by Jade Shutes, my Instructor at The School of Aromatic Studies. Now that fall is in the air and we're hiking in the woods mesmerized by the beautiful fall colors I thought this article was very timely to share. I created my Evergreen Resilience Rollerball blend from the calmness I would feel after taking my walks in the woods.

 I have traveled extensively to healing centers, holistic retreats and intentional communities, what Marcia Chambers offers in her women's circles is magical. Her gatherings are truly the divine feminine manifest. She blesses every woman with warmth, kindness and generous care. Her tranquility garden is the finest I found in all my travels. She is a gracious host with a genuine interest in the well being of others. I feel the support. I feel the love. I feel joy every time I attend.

 Attending one of Marcia’s events feels like being enveloped in a cocoon of sisterhood. The warm, inviting energy of her home allows one to instantly feel at ease. It’s clear that every element is created with painstaking care and attention. From the delicious food to the thought-provoking rituals, and the conversations shared between women in sacred space, Marcia’s events are thoughtful, beautiful, and inspiring from start to finish.

 For someone who struggles with quieting the mind and truly getting into a meditative state, I can’t thank you enough for experiencing your “Goddess Vibes in Ecstatic Dance”! This workshop—with your empowering affirmations and beautiful music—created a space for me to move my body & just “BE”! Thank you so much!

 The Lunar Cycles workshop that Marcia facilitated at Camp du Nord was wonderful. Marcia’s knowledge of the moon and its phases was eye opening for me. She makes it easy to understand and shares her personal journey with “moonology” and how it has enhanced her life. I look forward to learning more about the moon’s magic & applying it to my life.

 Marcia’s Women’s Circles are inspiring and empowering. She creates a safe space to share and connect –a place to be our true and authentic selves. Working with the power of the moon phases, she uses her wisdom to gently guide us to tap into our feminine energy. I have learned so much from Marcia about the natural cycles of nature and the importance of finding healing, sharing experiences, the magic of sisterhood, and living with intention.

 The experience of the Summer Solstice celebration at Marcia’s Inner Wild Woman studio was uplifting, energizing and insightful for me. The entire evening had a touch of magic to it, from the meditations, to the content she provided, to the meaningful sharing by the other women present, to the serenity and beauty of both her indoor and outdoor spaces. Marcia pays attention to every detail from the lovely crystals, essential oils and tarot cards, to the mocktails and dessert made especially to represent the fire and warmth of the summer solstice. I couldn’t have enjoyed or benefitted from the experience more!
