Indigenous cultures refer to medicine as the essence of the person, place or thing. In our terms it is the essence of being a spiritual, physical, mental and emotional being. Wolf medicine is about the essence of wolf spirit. Wolves are very ritualistic—in as many ways as humans. They live by carefully defined rules. There are specific territories that are sacred. Their social behavior is based upon a hierarchical structure. Each has its place and function within it.
The wolf teaches you to know who you are and to develop strength, confidence, and surety so that you do not have to demonstrate and prove yourself to all. Wolves have a complex communication system, using body language. If you have difficulty conveying your moods and ideas to others, wolf will teach you how to empower your verbal communications with appropriate body language.
Every member of the pack knows its position in relationship to everyone else within that pack. The ritualistic behaviors that establish the wolf ranks are part of its magic. Wolf packs are not entirely autocratic. Neither are they democratic. There are times when both occur, and it is this flexibility which adds to the success of wolf government. Wolf can teach the lesson of proper governorship—a balance between authority and democracy. Wolf can teach you how to use ritual to establish order and harmony within your own life. Wolf helps us to understand that true freedom requires discipline.
Wolf Medicine Workshop
The Wolf Medicine workshop is an initiation—a birthing process to more fully be who you are within the world. The focus is to discover the innate healing presence within yourself that have not been allowed to be seen or heard, let alone to mature as part of who you are. We will nurture those parts so as to begin to create a more centered and balanced life. Our intent is to create the sacred space that will enable you to fully birth who you are, shedding the parts that no longer serve the fullness of your presence. Each person will be given the opportunity to be initiated into the wolf medicine.
