Emma Veritas and Caitlin Bosshart

This is our Book Club episode where we discuss a chapter from our current book choice: Women Who Run With the Wolves: Myths and Stories of the Wild Woman Archetype by Dr. Clarissa Pinkola Estes. In this episode, we discuss chapter 9 "Homing: Returning to oneself”.

Summary:

This chapter focuses on the initiatory process of coming back to yourself when you feel lost in your life. It shows the process of returning home to your soul and finding fulfillment in your life. This chapter is for those of us who have stayed overlong in a situation. This could be a job, a relationship, a spiritual practice, or maybe just a particular formation or way of being in that situation. It’s for those of us who now feel dried out, lost, or unfulfilled. And it’s for those of us who feel the call to come back to ourselves, that strong pull that comes from inside saying “It’s time.”

In this episode we discuss:

  • Why seals are the perfect metaphor for the soul
  • How returning to yourself is a critical part of a fulfilling life
  • Practices you can do to help you find your true self again
