We are the walkers between the worlds, the she-wolves at the crossroads, howling the songs of our homelands.
We are the liminal beings, the ones who have hidden their true nature for too long but have learned how to reclaim their power. We have stepped out of the shadows and into the light, which is the birthright of us all.
We hold the space of belonging to nowhere and everywhere. We invite you to join us in that radiant place of freedom and reclaim your wild nature with us.
“It’s who we become that changes the world, not what we do.”
Some of the side effects of
working with us
Higher standards for your life.
Distilling illusions of comfort and safety.
Taking risks that allow you to use your wings of being.
Sudden feelings of joy and peace.
Shedding old skin and growing a new, more radiant one.
Prioritizing your own expansion over the needs of others.
Being called “The Wild One” by those who have forgotten their wild nature.
Losing fake friends, partners, and clients that are not aligned with your deepest truth.
We will teach
How to be in a place of harmony with yourself
How to find your place of power among conflicting energies.
How to “rewire” your sense of belonging.
How to mend your fragmented self.
How to cultivate curiosity instead of reactivity.
How to be in a place of safety that allows the conditioned self to die and your true wild essence to shine brightly again without fear, doubt, hesitation. or contracting.
CAUTION: THIS JOURNEY IS NOT FOR THE FAINT OF HEART. THIS IS A DEEP TRANSFORMATIONAL CONTAINER THAT WILL IMPACT EVERY ASPECT OF YOUR LIFE.
“YOU are the Medicine”
We are inviting you to our community! Your Community!
Together we will co-create a collective of women who are re-membering their wildness…
Together we will remember who we truly are by working with the ancient arts of storytelling, writing, ritual, and ceremony.
Samar and Masha, your guides on this journey of self-reclamation, are both trained and certified by Dr. Clarissa Pinkola Estés, the Jungian analyst, author, poet, and legend behind the seminal work Women Who Run with the Wolves: Myths and Stories of the Wild Woman Archetype.
Come gather with other wild women as we heal, re-member, and reclaim our lives and our essence together.
“You only are free when you realize you belong no place – you belong every place – no place at all. The price is high. The reward is great. […] I belong to myself. I’m very proud of that. I’m very concerned about how I look at Maya. I like Maya very much.”
Dr. Maya Angelou
“Stories heal us because we become whole through them. In the process of writing, of discovering our story, we restore those parts of ourselves that have been scattered, hidden, suppressed, denied, distorted, and forbidden, and we come to understand that stories heal.”
Come gather in a circle with other women for a rounded story-telling, story-finding, and story-weaving experience based on book The Women Who Run with the Wolves with monthly themes that will include:

She is inspired by the lived experiences of people like herself: apparent outsiders who seem to belong nowhere and everywhere.
Masha is a recipient of many writing awards and her creative and scholarly work has appeared in anthologies, books, edited volumes, scholarly and literary journals, and was featured on podcasts and radio.
