Who is the wild woman? She's the grit and grace inside that insists we claim our voice, trust our instinct, and fearlessly cast off forces that insist on perfection and oppression. She will not allow the plundering of the divine feminine or our natural resources. She will not be tamed. We crave her protection and we long to bask in her healing presence. We bravely step up, howling with the insistence that we will no longer live without her. We brazenly demand a juicy life, one in which we embrace our true essence. She shall rise and so shall we. For there is no force more powerful than a woman determined to rise.
The evocative illustrations of Sophie Wilkins are ripe with symbolism. She explores the myriad expressions of the divine feminine with animal guides as companions. Writer Angi Sullins implores us to cultivate sanctuary for the wild woman in kitchens, studios, gardens, and boardrooms around the planet and in the depths of our souls.
