Save the Date--More details on the Retreat and registration details will follow in August.

One night in April when my mind was thinking about all that I needed to do, the idea of facilitating a retreat came to mind. As I pondered what the topic could be, the book 'Women Who Run with the Wolves' I first learned about when my began my women's circle Creatrix training popped in my head AND then the idea of the International Wolf Center in Ely being the perfect location sealed the deal that I NEEDED to do this in January 2025 during the Wolf Full Moon. I reached out to my tribe of Ely practitioners and besties in Minneapolis to gage interest and it was an astounding YES! I immediately contacted the Wolf Center who loved the idea and I was able to secure lodging at the Stay Inn Ely for out of town attendees.

The book 'Women Who Run with the Wolves: Myths and Stories of the Wild Woman Archetype' is a 1992 book by American psychoanalyst Clarissa Pinkola Estés. It spent 145 weeks on The New York Times Best Seller list over a three-year span, a record at the time.

In Women Who Run with the Wolves, Dr. Clarissa Pinkola Estés unfolds rich intercultural myths, fairy tales, folk tales, and stories, many from her own traditions, 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. The book's message conveys that 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.

Join me and other Ely wellness practitioners as we embrace the Wild Woman archetype for a powerful 'Honoring the Inner Wild Woman Retreat' at the International Wolf Center in Ely. A one of a kind experience with a full event schedule of workshops, delicious food and nightly gatherings as we connect to the inner and outer wild while also connecting in a conscious & kind way with other wild women. 

Tickets are limited to 25 so I encourage you to register as soon as registration details are announced later in the summer.

"Each of us, at least once in our lives, hears the inner call. Some call it the wild woman within, who seeks to be heard, to return to her tamed daughters to their natural, intuitive state, to break the chains that hold them so that they may run free." 

--Clarissa Pinkola Estes, Women Who Run With the Wolves

The International Wolf Center advances the survival of wolf populations by teaching about wolves, their relationship to wildlands and the human role in their future.
