What stirs in the depths of our bellies when we listen to them? What is a wild woman today? How do we embrace our wildness? Let’s explore these questions in the company of wild stories, and wild women.
"In many shamanic societies, if you came to a medicine person complaining of being disheartened, dispirited, or depressed, they would ask one of four questions: 'When did you stop dancing? When did you stop singing? When did you stop being enchanted by stories? When did you stop being comforted by the sweet territory of silence?"
