“Each of us, at least once in our lives, hears the inner call. Some call it the wild woman within, who seeks to be heard, to return her tamed daughters to their natural, intuitive state, to break the chains that hold them so that they may run free… “ ~ Clarissa Pinkola Estes, Women Who Run With the Wolves
The Reclaim the Wild Woman retreat in Costa Rica is a 7 day, 6-night retreat designed to heal and reveal your innate strength through the body, the mind, and spirit, while lifting the veil between yourself and the natural world.
