DIVE INTO THE STORIES OF THE WOMEN WHO HAVE STEPPED INTO THE POWER OF THEIR FIREY BODY, MIND + SOUL.
The Wild Feminine
Ever since I could remember there was something inside me more powerful than myself.
A feeling of sexual curiosity, feminine energy, deep, rooted self-love and confidence that I didn’t
know what to do with. It started to become quite innate, rather normal and comfortable up until
people and media began telling me what to do with that energy, how to oppress my sexual
desires and who I should be other than myself – WILD.
I used dance as a way of expressing that sensual goddess-like flame inside me. Something I
knew that was a lot stronger in me than the young women I surrounded myself with. It wasn’t
something I talked about or could even comprehend. I could just feel it, waiting to be unleashed.
At times this wild feminine would start to rise to the surface and I grew smarter at ways to keep
those urges submerged. For what though? For who? Someone else’s comfort? Because it was
As years went on and more oppression took place I noticed the wild feminine in me only grew
stronger. It would surface unexpectedly and I liked the taste of it. I wanted more of it. It gave me
a sense of coming home to the person I always thought I knew and familiarized myself with. I
began letting go of the judgment of others. Letting go of what society considers safe and
pleasant. I wasn’t born that way. These fibers within me hold stories, truth, desires, strength,
and a rebel cause to do what I came here to do. – Be WILD.
I now embrace HER, confide in HER, encourage HER to come out and play. I know the women
who came before me would be proud. I’ve learned to use this newfound power, vulnerability and
voice to reach others trapped in their own oppression. I could not have been freed without the
help of my sisters. This tribe of wild feminine is growing. We are coming forth in this new age
cleansing ourselves from the years of patriarch. The time is now. RISE UP, RELEASE,
EMPOWER… the wild feminine is waiting for you to love her and show her to the world.

I WILL NOT BE QUIET
amidst the winds ...and silences
padding - flying - galloping - swimming
across the seas ...and mountains
is open for worship
and I bow down
to this force of nature
that is ...ME
The ringing in my ears
harkens the arrival
of all the souls
I’ve embodied before
and stand naked
trembling ...with excitement
This will not be stealthy
I will not be quiet
Nor lie down and “endure” ...for one minute more
Perhaps you were mistaken
to believe me demure
or simply here
for your pleasure
Now…hear me ROAR!
I will not be dismissed
or thrown away ...when you get bored
I will not stand by
destroy my home
this Grand Planet ...we’ve been bestowed
I dream of the day
when your war
to the point of retreat
and I can finally
soothe and tend
you beat into me
slashed and torn
...I will rise
On heroine wings
Like the sun
into the sky
just shy …of heaven
Laugh if you will
the time of your demise has come
and you will wither
...neath the brush of my hands
There is nowhere
you can go
that will elude
the boundaries ...of love
Your surrender ...is imminent
I will not be quiet
as you lay down your arms
I will sing loudly
Your birth song
as we lay to rest
all the tragedies
atrocities long suffered
and rebuild our home
together …walking as one.

There's a fire that burns within her
Fed by a pulsating wild energy that penetrates every ounce of her being
She is wild
She loves hard
And feels deeply
She doesn't conform to society's standards
But lives by the natural rhythms of the universe
She ebbs and flows
She waxes and wanes
She runs with the wolves and sleeps with the moon
She is the light
and the darkness
She is masculine
She is god
She is the sky
and the earth.
and the stars.
and the animals.
She is raw.
She is you.
She is me.
She is us.
