Book Club: What Keeps You From Your Soul Life? (Ch. 8, Women Who Run With the Wolves)
Show Notes

This is our Book Club episode where we discuss a chapter from our current book choice: Women Who Run With the Wolves: Myths and Stories of the Wild Woman Archetype by Clarissa Pinkola Estes. In this episode, we discuss chapter 8 "Self-Preservation: Identifying leg traps, cages, and poisoned bait”.

Summary:

This chapter focuses on the very real consequences to heart, mind, and soul that can happen when we get stuck in the trap of living a life that looks like right on the outside but feels wrong on the inside. This chapter is for those of us who want to write, make art, sing, or do any kind of creativity at all, but have trouble doing these things because we worry what others will think. It’s for those of us who want to experience true fulfillment but reach for distractions instead. And it’s for those of us who really need to see the traps we’ve fallen into that are keeping us from our soul life, so we can break free from these traps.


In this episode we discuss:

  • How to break free from a job that is killing your soul
  • How to find your way back to your creative life
  • How to claim your gifts even when people have criticized them
