Soulskin Sojurns provide monthly opportunities to drop in below the surface where the fertile terrain of soul dwells, so you may incorporate the medicine from these depths into your day to day life.
Wild Soul Circles
Wild Soul Circles are a sacred, safe, and brave space for mothers to connect with our souls, each other and the wild through story and the way of council.
Council is and ancient way rooted within nature and our ancestral lineages, spanning diverse cultures and traditions. In circle, we remember to listen to the wisdom of the whole. Each voice has a unique story and value, while also an essential thread in the collective story being woven. In the practice of council, we listen from the heart to the frequency of soul, we tune in to the mysterious messages below the surface, and address what is alive and truly matters. Within this practice we are fully heard, and find ourselves mirrored and reflected in a way that allows us to see our true selves, our gifts, our soul story and our deep connection with others.
We will work with myths and stories that reflect who we are, shed light on who we might become, and provide guidance for the reclamation of our wild souls and the gifts of our true nature we are here to live. In our journey together, we will enter the mythic forest of our deep imagination. We will make art, move, write, and vision so that we may incorporate the medicine from what is discovered into ourselves and our lives.
Wild Soul Circles are hosted at the Family Village, A Longmont Cooperative and is free for Family Village members with Access Passes (including if you sign up that day) and $25 for non-members. Childcare is provided utilizing Access Passes, punch passes or at $8/hour for by the hour purchase.
Annual Book Circle with ”Women Who Run With the Wolves: Myths and Stories of the Wild Woman Archetype” by Dr. Clarissa Pinkola Estés
“Within every woman there lives a powerful force, filled with good instincts, passionate creativity, and ageless knowing. She is the Wild Woman, who represents the instinctual nature of women. But she is an endangered species. In Women Who Run With the Wolves, Dr. Estés unfolds rich intercultural myths, fairy tales, and stories, many from her own family, in order to help women reconnect with the fierce, healthy, visionary attributes of this instinctual nature. Through the stories and commentaries in this remarkable book, we retrieve, examine, love, and understand the Wild Woman and hold her against our deep psyches as one who is both magic and medicine.”
Together we will utilize this book to investigate our wild nature and explore how to incorporate this necessary wisdom into our own lives. We will read this book cover to cover, meeting monthly, to explore how our psyche has been stirred, and to excavate further what medicines are arising from the depths of soul. We will engage in council, dreamwork, deep imagination, art, movement, journaling, and more.
We ask those who apply to consider the long term commitment and also to ensure you are well resourced for the soulful exploration that can be emotional and altering, so while our circle may be therapeutic, it is not therapy and we will like to know that you have additional support outside our circle should you need.
