The Wild Dreamers Epic Journey of Becoming with Danielle Dulsky

March 18, 2020

Hello and welcome to This Sacred Life. I love to share transformational conversations with women who have learned to walk in beauty, with the strength, courage, and pleasure of reclaiming their feminine sovereignty. Women all over the world are rising up to have their voices heard and I invite you to join us in the conversation. If you like what you hear, please share some stars and a favorable review.

Today it' my honor to introduce you to Danielle Dulsky. Danielle is a heathen visionary, painter, and word-witch. The author of Seasons of Moon and Flame, Woman Most Wild, and The Holy Wild, she teaches internationally and has facilitated circles, embodiment trainings, communal spell-work, and seasonal rituals since 2007. She is the founder of The Hag School and believes in the emerging power of wild collectives and sudden circles of curious dreamers, cunning witches, and rebellious artists in healing our ailing world.

I’ve had the pleasure of speaking with Danielle several times over the years and I’m honored to have her back for another episode of This Sacred Life.

I always get still and choose a Goddess Card before every conversation. Today “Receiving” came up from Sacred Rebels Oracle by Alana Fairchild with art by Autumn Skye Morrison.
