Women Who Run With the Wolves invites us to explore myths and stories about the archetype of the “Wild Woman.” This study group provides an in depth reading of the first eight chapters of Women Who Run With the Wolves with particular focus on women’s initiation, intuition, union with “other,” capacities for love, sense of belonging, joy of the body, and need for self-preservation.
Participants will need to purchase a copy of Women Who Run With the Wolves and read a chapter a week.
1. Participants will be able to describe the role of archetype in the psyche.
2. Participants will be able to articulate the nature of the “Wild Woman” as essential to women’s well-being.
3. Participants will be able to delineate at least three aspects of the journey toward feminine wholeness.
4. Participants will be able to identify at least three of the “traps” that may undermine psyche’s process.
