Running with the Wolves


Running with the Wolves

How do our stories teach us as women?  For those who have read Women Who Run With Wolves you'll know what I mean...and for those who haven't - go get it!  I'm hoping we can, in this forum, discuss and share our own stories and encourage each other...

I wrote this poem after reading parts of Women who run with the wolves:

La Loba

It is a sacred place–this place

I find

when I am unexpecting.

Sometimes it's when I am

overjoyed; sometimes when I am desperate

And sometimes in that space

between waking and dreaming;

But in that secret river–that sacred place–

is The Mother, The One Who Knows.

La Loba.

Search, she tells me, search, love.–the answers

you alone hold. You know what to do.

And of yourself–let die what must die,

let live what must live.

You have a power in your veins–a power

in your very mind–and it

is fed from your soul, she tells me.

And I, for a few moments, revel

in the possibility that illness

is just a lesson from a force

stronger than water.

Hi All, 

I am currently reading the book and am blown away... It is having a deep impact on me and my writing in my blog. I wrote about it here:


And the concepts of the book also influenced my most recent post here:


Would love to have a deeper discussion about the book...

Haven't read the book but I just requested it through my library!

From Women Who Run With the Wolves: "...It comes through the written and the spoken word; sometimes a word, a sentence or a poem or a story, is so resonant, so right, it causes us to remember, at least for an instant, what substance we are really made from, and where is our true home."
