Come learn from feminine wisdom as we explore Dr. Clarissa Pinkola Estés non-fiction book, Women Who Run with the Wolves: Myths and Stories of the Wild Woman Archetype.  Using Jungian psychology and Latinx scholarship, Dr. Estes presents the wolf as a female archetype.  With a contemporary feminist lens, her book explores feminity, freedom, and intuition through myths and fairy tales. 
 
During this Day Apart, we will be looking at Chapter 14 in which Dr. Estes unpacks the feminine journey through many stages and invites each of us to look at our own lives and hear the unique invitations to grow through the review.  
 
Come and be with sisters who have journeyed through their own challenges and give thanks for the chance to share and listen to deepen their own wells of understanding so we can dispel fears and sorrows and move into sharing deeper love and compassion in our lives.
