Based on Dr. Clarissa Pinkola Estes' iconic work Women Who Run With the Wolves: Myths and Stories of the Wild Women Archetype, in this group we work to reclaim our truest Selves through laying our own stories down beside those in the book.
Led by Liana Yip, Registered Clinical Counsellor. In addition to being a student of Dr. Estes, Liana is currently completing a PhD in Depth Psychology with a specialization in Jungian and Archetypal Studies at North America’s foremost institute for the study of depth psychology, Pacifica Graduate Institute. Dr. Estes' work has greatly influenced both Liana's work and her personal development, she has studied with Dr. Estes on Women Who Run With the Wolves group facilitation and aims to bring her work in it's purest form to you.

"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, but she is an endangered species. Though the gifts of wildish nature come to us at birth, society's attempt to "civilize" us into rigid roles has plundered this treasure, and muffled the deep, life-giving messages of our own souls. Without Wild Woman, we become over-domesticated, fearful, uncreative, trapped."- Dr. Clarissa Pinkola Estes
“...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 in which the criatura, creature, has innate integrity and healthy boundaries. These words, wild and woman, cause women to remember who they are and what they are about. They create a metaphor to describe the force which funds all females. They personify a force that women cannot live without.” - Dr. Clarissa Pinkola Estes
