Women Rising Wild in Texas

Initiation Retreat at High Hope Ranch
In Collaboration with Fossil Rim Wildlife Center
Glen Rose, Texas
April 21 – 23, 2023

It is said that “Within every woman there is a wild and natural creature, a powerful force, filled with good instincts, passionate creativity, and ageless knowing.” Her name is “Wild Woman.” And within the “wild nature” of woman is “the medicine for all things.” Clarissa Pinkola Estés, Ph.D., author of Women Who Run With the Wolves

At our Women Rising Wild Initiation Retreat in Glen Rose, Texas you will experience the brilliance of your own true nature through sacred community living and outdoor immersion at Fossil Rim Wildlife Center and High Hope Ranch. Witness firsthand the charge of creative energy and wild intelligence boldly alive in the bodies of the plants and animals we encounter. Then, with attention on this mirror to your own potential and the support of our facilitators we journey into the wild landscape of the feminine soul where we will uncover the knowledge of who we each are and birth some of the unique, untethered medicine gifts of our true belonging. An eco-stewardship seva project and conscious sisterhood on the land invite us into an intimate co-embodiment of love in conscious relationship with each other and the more than human world.

April 21 – 23, 2023
