You Were Once Wild Here...The Rise of Wild Feminine Leadership

“You were once wild here. Don’t let them tame you.”

~ Isadora Duncan

Women are the healers, the visionaries, and the fierce protectors of all that is vulnerable. Women are being called into leadership during this disruptive and historic time.

A rise into leadership requires physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual stamina to have maximum influence and impact.

We must fortify ourselves and each other with nourishing food, movement, thoughts, community, and intuition in order to take bold action wherever it is needed in our lives and spheres of influence.

Those actions may be small and private... or big, public, and world-changing, but they are what our loved ones, communities, and the earth need most from us right now.

Wild Feminine Archetype

  3. She loves! She loves! She loves! Feels like a ferocious love. Big. Boundless.

  4. Connected to nature, to family, to her sisters.

  5. Her heart is with the goodness and for the betterment of the highest good
