229. The Wild Woman Archetype: Nourishing your Goddess Instincts, Passion and Beauty with Dr. Stacey Shelby

Have you met the Wild Women?

Hopefully regardless of how old you are, you know her and you know her well.

Perhaps you caught a faint whiff of her on a steamy hot Summer night or when a societal or cultural issue ignited your inner fire to take action on something that was important to you.

Yet far too many women are not familiar with her.

They either consciously or unconsciously feel the cultural constraints and metaphorical leash that has tried to tame and domesticate her in an attempt to control and limit her powerful energy and abilities. Yet we need her…desperately. The primal, instinctual nature that exists in all women is known as the Wild Woman archetype and it is a critical asset in helping us navigate wisely through our lives. So if you find yourself feeling overly ‘civilized’ or ‘domesticated’, out of touch with your instinctual inner compass and “fire in the belly” – basically feeling lame and far too tame – this episode is for you!

My guest today is Dr. Stacey Shelby who is an author, speaker, educator, and depth psychotherapist. She is certified clinical dream tender holds a masters and Ph.D. in Depth Psychology with a specialization in Jungian and Archetypal Studies. In this episode we tap into Dr. Shelby’s understanding and experience with the Wild Woman Archetype and what it means for all women. We also talk about love as a catalyst for true inner awakening and discuss ways we can engage with Goddess archetypes in our everyday lives.
