Women Who Thrive, Change The World! is the mantra for WildlyFreeWoman. This quote from Clarissa Pinkola Estes, Ph.D. best describes what you will find within the postings on this blog.
“When women reassert their relationship with the wildish nature, they are gifted with a permanent and internal watcher, a knower, a visionary, an oracle, an inspiratrice, an intuitive, a maker, a creator, an inventor, and a listener who guide, suggest, and urge vibrant life in the inner and outer worlds. When women are with the Wild Woman, the fact of that relationship glows through them. This wild teacher, wild mother, wild mentor supports their inner and outer lives, no matter what.
So, the word wild here is not used in its modern pejorative sense, meaning out of control, but in its original sense which means to live a natural life, one which the creature has innate integrity to remember who they are and what they are about. They create metaphor to describe the force which funds all females. They personify a force that women cannot live without.”
