Women Who Run with the Wolves

by mandy lipka

I’m rereading this and couldn’t help but share the foreword:

We are all filled with a longing for the wild. There are few culturally sanctioned antidotes for this yearning. We were taught to feel shame for such a desire. We grew our hair long and used it to hide our feelings. But the shadow of the Wild Woman still lurks behind us during our days and our nights. No matter where we are, the shadow that trots behind us is definitely four-footed. -Clarissa Pinkola Estés, Ph.D
