The Healing Power of Wildness
A weekend introduction to a possible longterm adventure exploring womens’ personal journeys. Using fairytales found in multiple cultures, leading Jungian analyst Clarissa Pinkola Estes wrote her book “Women Who Run With the Wolves”. This collection is the inspiration for the playshop, and each facet is given an art therapy exercise, utilizing many artmaking techniques to mine the gold in the subconscious. With the weekend intro, we invoke the Wild Woman through collage, dollmaking, and symbolic artwork. From this weekend, many groups have been born that have continued through the following winter. This winter work can be done by Skype once the initial prerequisite weekend is attended.
