Woman Most Wild: Three Keys to Liberating the Witch Within. {book preview}

 

Wild-eyed Rebels, this book would not have been possible had you and the editors of Rebelle Society not gifted me the courage to write it.

Your messages of gratitude, grace, and brave-hearted her-stories fed my primal feminine soul until it was positively bursting, and I had no choice but to get the Witch’s word into a book and out into the world. All blessings to you, forever and always.

About the Book:

Written by Danielle Dulsky, Woman Most Wild (New World Library, 2017) is a three-part ode to the untamed feminine psyche. Offering a non-dogmatic approach to Witchcraft, the author encourages the reader to liberate her inner Witch, affirm her spiritual autonomy, and reclaim all that has been stolen from the feminine.

Through “Wild Rhythm,” or a personally meaningful understanding of nature’s cycles, “Wild Ritual,” or spellcraft and ceremony, and “Wild Circle,” or communal magick-making and heart-centered communication, the reader is encouraged to handcraft her own practice, taking what is hers and leaving what is not.

Danielle encourages Witches to frame their magick as an expression of the global community in which they want the children of the future to live, necessarily embodying soul-specific values unique to every practitioner. “Uncaging the wild woman means rallying against oppression and honoring the beauteously untamable and miraculously unruined spirit within us all.”

The Witch is an activist-Priestess. She does not sit back and work her magick solely for personal gain; she feels a kinship with the Earth, knows her own body as a similar reflection of the Feminine Divine, and has bound her in-the-blood sensuality to her holy spirituality irrevocably and inextricably.

The Wild Feminine is a homemade, potent salve for many of the world’s wounds, and everyone, regardless of gender, harbors some psychic terrain where this particular, timely medicine grows.

Preview from Chapter 12, Benediction of the Wolf-Woman

“As human beings, we have an ego-deep desire to label, fragment, and position concepts in opposition to one another. If it is not light, we label it as dark. If it is not marked by the attributes of the sacred feminine, we call it masculine. I hold a firm personal belief that the sacred feminine, when fed, will bring balance to an overly masculine world. However, I also recognize the sanctity of the divine masculine, in all its virile hunter and consciousness-raising glory, as well as the spectrum of wild spirituality on which everything I have spoken to you about in these pages lives.

When you feed the She-Wolf, you acknowledge that the defining trait of any wild spirituality is its resistance to limitations. The wild woman will neither be tamed nor labeled, for she is the embodiment of a billion concepts, deities, and holy energies at once. By extension, she will not go freely into space that is carved out for her; her priority is always liberation, which she achieves through a consistent and sensual experience of magick and Mystery. The She-Wolf wants to roam freely and in solitude at will. She wants to seek and find her pack when she needs them or when they howl for her. She will not be contained in any cage, even one you have built for her with your own hands…. Just when you think you have her figured out, she will show you the deeper wild.”

Much-Appreciated Praise for Woman Most Wild

“What and who is a Witch? What if Witch identifies resources of the human psyche actively suppressed by Western (and many other) cultures for millennia — resources that are feminine, sacred, and utterly natural at their roots? What if these resources are essential for the wholeness of all humans and for all life-enhancing cultural transformation, especially at this time of global unrest?

In this engaging, bold, and intimate book, Danielle Dulsky provides keys to unlock ancient portals behind which perilous and pivotal treasures await.” ~ Bill Plotkin, Author of ‘Soulcraft and Wild Mind’, Founder of the Animus Valley Institute

“I feel like I have read every book on the market on witchcraft, Wicca, Celtic magic, druid practices, magic, magik, magick, goddess worship, and the neo-pagan movement, but none of these have done what Danielle Dulsky has done through her book…

In this sumptuous, scrumptious, sensuous (meaning, engaging all the senses) book, Danielle has rescued the inherent, intuitive magic of women from the dogma and doctrine that has continually tried to imprison it.” ~ Lauri Ann Lamby, Temple of the Magdalene

“Just as other oppressed people have reclaimed the very words meant to oppress them, Danielle Dulsky is reclaiming perhaps the most powerful word used against women throughout history… The word is ‘Witch’. And Dulsky has dared to reclaim it in this deeply alchemical and passionate book.

Not only does she brave the word, but she also restores the rich, embodied meanings and uses it inspires.” ~ Deborah Kampmeier, Full Moon Films

“With all that modern women are facing — from political activism to personal growth to motherhood — it’s all too easy for us to lose our inner spark. More than ever, we need to reclaim the lost art of what Dulsky calls “wild woman spirituality” by calling forth the archetype of the Witch.” ~ Sara Avant Stover, author of ‘The Way of the Happy Woman’ and ‘The Book of SHE’
