Episode 166 - The Way Of The Wild Soul Woman

Do you feel like you have lost yourself, or are just lost in general? Mary Reynolds Thompson introduces us to the five archetypes of the Wild Soul Woman’s psyche—the untamed, unashamed, and unstoppable aspects of inner feminine power that many women, and men, have forgotten or disconnected from. We explore Spiritual Ecology and the intersection of Women’s Liberation and Earth’s Restoration. We'll see how ancient Earth wisdom can help us to heal from cultural wounds and find a different source of strength, how these Earth archetypes are part of larger rewilding of the psyche that is being called forth at this time.

For her, the wildest terrain has always been that of the wild soul.
