Deja Louve – A Woman Who Runs with the Wolves

Dr. Clarissa Pinkola Estes’ Women Who Run with the Wolves happens to be one of the books that inspired The Rebirth of Power project.

At the heart of Dr. Estes’ thesis is: within every woman exists a powerful force.  One that women need to dig out.  She is creative, intuitive, and instinctual: she is an endangered “wild woman archetype.”  Many have so accustomed themselves (subconsciously and consciously) to hiding her, disguising her, and holding her down that they are sometimes unable to recognize her as who we need to be: who we are.  This behaviour only pressures us to show sides of ourselves that conform to whatever ideals that we have placed upon ourselves: thereby stripping us of our own voices and disempowering ourselves.

Incidentally, I believe this form of disempowerment does not discriminate itself against men.

Deja Louve has taught me that the characters and personas that we create and project can also be part of the many layers that form this power.  For Deja, they are expressions of her power.  What makes her feel most powerful and most like her self

Here we see a selection from her journey from session 1.

(If you are curious to get a better understanding of this project have a look back at the previous post’s introduction: The Rebirth of Power)
