Cyote Dick and Dirty Goddesses...
The next 'Wolves' is on 7 Dec. We will be looking at sexuality!
We'll discuss 'The Dirty Goddesses' and 'Cyote Dick'.
If you've not heard the story of Cyote Dick it's a fantastic one - join us to find out more ;-)
See you there!
When women start to look at each other as whole and worthy beings and see our diversity as a strength, our wild selves can be awakened. When these spaces are able to breathe, we can transform rules and regulations and allow the powerful movement of creativity and chaos to be born.
Based on the book by Clarissa Pinkola Estés we look at the wild awakened woman as nurturers, warriors, healers and story-tellers monthly. We also discover and discuss other authors and women's stories.
About the book 'Women Who Run With the Wolves':
Estés is an American Jungian analyst, post-trauma specialist, author and spoken word artist.
"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 Women Who Run With the Wolves, Dr. 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 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. Estés 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."
Join us for an evening of exploration and friendship as we look at what it is to tap into our innate, wild selves!
We aim to finish off discussions at 8.30-9.00PM and you are invited to stay for subsequent coffee downstairs.
INCLUDES A LIGHT SUPPER
We appreciate both the anima and animus aspects of all but because the 'Wolves' series, among other things, explores biologically female cycles and experiences, it is suitable only for those who are genetically female, and we appreciate your understanding and respect for this.
Thank you :)
