This is our Book Club episode where we discuss a chapter from our current book choice: Women Who Run With the Wolves by Dr. Clarissa Pinkola Estes. In this episode, we discuss chapter 14 “La Selva Subterranea: Initiation in the underground forest”.
This chapter is an exploration of the entire life process of claiming your wild self through a descent into the underworld, which is the deep realm of the psyche within us. It's for you if you would love to understand more about the journey of claiming your wild self and locate yourself in it. It’s for you if you need encouragement to keep going, keep seeking healing, and keep seeking your true self. It’s also for you if you want to be emboldened by the endurance of the wild self, who can go on long healing journey and come through the other side.
In this episode we discuss stages 1 - 3 of the journey to claim your wild self:
