A Wild Soul Woman Workshop

A dynamic writing workshop with:

Mary Reynolds Thompson and Kate Thompson

SUNDAY APRIL 14th 12.30-4.30pm


.The Mountain Woman Archetype summons you to rise tall under pressure and take your place in the world as a wholly creative and visible presence. She shows us how every action we take, enlarges the story of Self and World.

“The most regretful people on earth are those who felt the call to creative work, who felt their own creative power restive and uprising, and gave to it neither power nor time.”—Mary Oliver

Women have often been told it’s okay to be the foothills but never a soaring Long’s Peak. And yet, in these seismic times, the inner Mountain Woman begins to shake and stir. Down in the ache of all the broken and wounded aspects of Self and World, something new is bubbling up.

Here in the foothills of the Rocky Mountains we have the magnificent view of the snow-capped Continental Divide. Your inner Mountain Woman wants to soar to those high horizons.

In this experiential writing workshop you will awaken to your Mountain Woman Self, the part of you that longs to rise up and take your full place and space in the world.

  • Are you ready to:
  • Birth a creative project?
  • Speak your truth?
  • Stand in your own power?

Join co-facilitators Mary and Kate to explore through poetry, journal writing, and meditation what Mountain Woman is calling forth in you, right now.. And find a community of support to stand up and speak out for your own values in service of what really matters to you.

This lively session invites whole-hearted participation and requires only a journal and pen. Suitable for all levels of writers. Weather permitting, we will spend some of our time outdoors, so come prepared.
