Second Thursday Book Group: Women Who Run with the Wolves
Thursday, March 12, 2020 @ 6:30 pm – 8:30 pm
“Women Who Run with the Wolves isn’t just another book. It’s a gift of profound insight, wisdom, and love,” said Alice Walker in 1992 of Jungian analyst and storyteller Dr. Clarissa Pinkola Estes’ ground-breaking book.
The Camden Public Library will host a new book group called “Second Thursday Book Group: Women Who Run With the Wolves.” The group will be spearheaded by Tracy Ann Lord and will focus on exploring different facets of Dr. Clarissa Pinkola Estes’ book from 1992 exploring myths and stories of the Wild Woman archetype.
Almost forty years have passed since Jungian psychoanalyst Dr. Estes first wrote the words, “Within every woman lies 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.”
Lord says, “Today the call has never been louder to honor what we know, protect what we love, and nourish the wellspring of our individual and collective feminine psyche.” She continues, “Women Who Run with the Wolves deeply mines the feminine psyche so women can reconnect with the healthy instinctual visionary attributes of the Wild Woman archetype. In this book group, I hope that like-minded people will come together to celebrate this psychology of women in the truest sense — for she who cannot howl will not find her pack.”
The Second Thursday Book Group will meet monthly in the History Center on the second floor of the Camden Public Library. For more information or to sign up please contact book group founder Tracy Ann Lord at firstname.lastname@example.org.
