Wild Woman Forest Camp
‘La Loba’ wolf woman is the guardian keeper of all that is wild and free in us; and she is calling us back home. Calling us to feel our paws pressing into the dirt, to smell the mulched leaves and moist fertile soil of the earth. She is not afraid of the darkness, she trusts her instincts, her love is fierce and loyal.
La Loba has much to teach us in the reuniting of us as women with the nature within us and the nature around us.
Are you ready to awaken to her call and to run free with her in the forest? To lay together with bellies on the earth and breathe with life, to sing and howl with the moon as we remember what it is to feel totally alive, unashamed and belonging.
As women we have forgotten the feminine ways of our wild and instinctual self. We have forgotten that this nature in which we live, also lives within us. We have been taught to feel shame about being this wild woman. We have been taught to be quiet and small and to be ‘nice girls’. And we have been taught to fear this wild power that thrums both in ourselves and each other.
Our time will be primarily spent outdoors camping. There will be a large central fire as our womb home hearth. We will keep this fire burning to hold our hearts and bodies in circle. This hearth will be the resting place for us to nurture ourselves and each others, with good food of our earth that we will share in the cooking and preparing of and hot warming drinks. It will be our roots to return to and keep the company of our soul sisters, share our stories, listen to the ancestors, pray and sing with the day and the night.
Things that might be included are: dancing, singing, ritual body painting, immersion into the forest, crafting, sharing, feeling, eating, awakening our senses, stepping out of the mundane of life, opening to the feminine mystery, finding our power, leaving the good girl at home and discovering yourself as woman as you never have before.
