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 femininity, freedom, and intuition through myths and fairy tales.  

During this 4 part ONLINE journey on the second Saturdays of the month (November through February), we will be looking at the various topics which Dr. Estes outlines as part of the feminine journey and the many stages which invite 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. 

Registration fee: $59 for the full series         

About the leader(s)

Lee Ireland

Rev. Lee A. Ireland is a long-time Interim Pastor having served in many churches in CT and most recently in Rowley, MA. She is currently serving as the Designated Term Pastor at the Groton Congregational Church in CT.  She lives in Niantic, CT and is listening during this time of the pandemic.   She received her M.Div. from Andover Newton Theological School, and trained as a Spiritual Director at Mercy Center, Madison, CT.  She has served in 12 different congregational settings as well as working in a women's prison and as a per diem hospital chaplain. Since 1990, she has had the joy of leading retreats. She is well aware of how life throws us curve balls and we can become distracted from our soul's journey because we focus on those things that lead us down dead-ends.  We begin to regain wonder and gratitude as we chose to take retreats and learn how to listen within so we can stay on our faith journeys, receive guidance from God and hear our hearts and souls singing in unexpected moments.  We then make new life choices that bring us greater peace within and fulfillment as we live, love and serve from that knowing.
