About the event
This 14 week course will explore the book WOMEN WHO RUN WITH THE WOLVES. Each chapter will be explored, drawing on the writing of Clarissa Pinkola Estes as well as other source material to illuminate the lessons within the text.
This book focuses on women's instincts & intuition through the medium of stories, myths, and fairytales that each explore a facet of the Wild Woman archetype.
This course is part lecture, part interactive. I'm so excited to offer this course in which the approach to the material is not just intellectual analysis, but an embodied practice of engaging in intuition through imaginal awareness. While this book was written in the 90's it is urgent for our times.
Women find ourselves in a place in which the very words we have to describe our embodied experience are being turned into a conceptual identity that anyone of any sex can claim. We are being compartmentalized, sectionalized, & commodified and told to refer to ourselves as birthing bodies, vulva owners, bleeders, breeders, & chest feeders. This book is an antidote and remedy to the kind of thinking which turns a woman's wholeness into an abstract concept. This book offers a way of re-membering, and re-discovering a woman's embodied, intuitive, and instinctual self.
The understandings of this book are deepened by coming to discuss the values of intuition & instincts in community. This course will be a place for women to reflect on the material by sharing their own stories, experiences, & wisdom.
In The Gift of Fear, safeguarding expert Gavin de Becker says of intuition, “intuition connects us to the natural world and to our nature. Freed from the bonds of judgment, married only to perception, it carries us to predictions we will later marvel at.” The gifts of intuition are women's birthright. The intuition is a capacity that we all have, although it is one that is culturally devalued. This course offers a way to come to a deeper understanding of intuition as well as practical tools to be able to develop one's personal intuition as a capacity.
