Woman Most Wild
After centuries of persecution, witches have gotten some bad press in pop culture. From Macbeth to Snow White, witches have traditionally appeared as villains, harming the innocent with black magic. In Woman Most Wild, however, author Danielle Dulsky debunks antiquated myths and reveals the true nature of witchcraft: an ancient spiritual path that rejects religious dogma in favor of female empowerment and reverence for the earth. In her sly conversational tone, Dulsky argues that it’s time to reclaim the word witch. More importantly, she shows us that every woman has a potential witch trapped inside, waiting to be freed from repression and conformity. Woman Most Wild gives all women the keys to freedom: by aligning themselves with the cycles of nature, understanding the importance of ritual, and bonding with a circle of like-minded seekers, they can liberate the witch within and take part in a collective feminine awakening.

Danielle has a wonderful, poetic writing style that feels rich and velvety while still infused with empowerment and energy. Now more than ever, we all need to embrace our inner feminine power (no matter where you find yourself gender-wise) and this book goes in depth on how to do just that.

Now more than ever, we all need to embrace our inner feminine power (no matter where you find yourself gender-wise) and this book goes in depth on how to do just that. I can't say enough good things about this book. It's truly brilliant. In the desire to be transparent, I am the author's publicist, but this is the first book I have written a review of on my own personal account. I honestly, truly love this book.

Thank you Danielle for this gift."I made the holiest vows in utter silence,Trusting the an ancient version of myself was listening;Knowing that in a time long gone, I was being heard.My heart-voice echoed through the Mother oaks,And this wounded woman from a world at war learnedwho she wasOnly by listening to her own voice on a warm wind."May you find as much value as I did from treasured words found within this book!

    I don't know where to begin. Danielle's words of power found me first via Facebook; article after article she lifted me up from the ashes and reminded me of my inherent Shakti fire and wild nature. Fast forward to receiving a copy of this book (which I was so honored and blessed to receive) and it was page after page of me screaming, "YES, YES, YES!". Her words are woven spells; like a spider web draws in prey, this book will surely capture you, too--in the best way possible. Not since "Women Wh I don't know where to begin.

Not since "Women Who Run with Wolves" by Clarissa Pinkola Estes has a book hit me so hard, and so close to home. Danielle guides the reader through Wild Woman Spirituality while rekindling the Divine Feminine spark within us all. She empowers us while dishing out hard truth and practical applications. This book is necessary for every Witch, every Woman, every person who wishes to re-wild themselves, and get back to the animals we are. It is through Danielle's raw truth that we understand the power of our wild, for that is where our Magick resides. The Divine Feminine is rising and this book is a supreme example of that.

    Although I don't identify as a Witch myself I identified deep down in my soul with Danielle's words, imagery and writings. Reading this book I felt as if Danielle channeled my grandmother and all my ancestors before her and they are telling me to reconnect with the Earth and all of her wisdom. I would recommend this to anyone who is looking to reclaim her (or his) wild self and get back to their roots. I will be giving this a second read.

    This book is so brilliantly written that it will remain next to me for a long time to come.

The book was such a comfort and inspiration and filled with so much witchy magick that it actually pulled me out of the dark places.Every single page was filled with story or lesson or ritual to delve deeply into the divine feminine witchy parts that had long been buried inside. I celebrate myself and my soul because of Dulsky's eloquent writing. She is clearly an old and brilliant soul with so many divine gifts....I feel so filled with gratitude that she shared them and celebrates along with me.Thank you Danielle

    In the last chapter of her book, Danielle Dulsky writes that "there is no turning back now, witch" - and this is sure to be the exact experience that anyone who reads "Woman Most Wild"undergoes.

Not only does Danielle's fiery spirit add spark and encouragement to every page, but this book covers literally every subject someone could need to get more in touch with their divine wild feminine and witchdom. Danielle dives deep into lunar, seasonal, and blood rhythms, offering plenty of details on meditation and ritual (and even yoga) to bridge the gap between book and life and bring the practices into waking consciousness. I am confident that anyone who reads this book will never be able to look at the world around them or their own femininity the same way again - as with all great spiritual novels, they will become infused by the words and every day will be a sensual reclamation of their fierce feminine wildness.

    What I value most about this book is how well it serves the feminist mystic who is looking for empowerment and an inspiring framework for navigating life through the lens of feminine divinity... rather than a detailed rigid spiritual philosophy which robs you of your own innate sacred power and offers no space for self-definition.

It is of course this non-hierarchical flexible approach which makes it both innately feminine and - for me - is at the root of its immense power and contribution to the canon. It seems to me a deeply sad irony that the realm of spiritual philosophy and teaching, which ought to be at the vanguard of human evolution is actually an area potentially most at risk from the worst kinds of dysfunctional patriarchal hunger for power and abuse, in the form of spiritual predators. I personally fell foul of such trickery soon after awakening to my spiritual path and paid a very high price for my poor choice of teachers: I was left spiritually bereft and abandoned after the meditation centre who had promised me they were my forever spiritual home dropped me like a hot potato when I developed symptoms of psychosis. This may well have been because the rigid type of meditation and philosophy they had taught me was in all likelihood (I later found out) a major cause of my mental health crisis. In the immediate aftermath of their rejection of me, whilst still in a state of psychosis I took a literal "leap of faith" from a bridge resulting in a broken pelvis and ankle. So, on a personal level, I could not be more aware of the potential dangers of adopting a pre-packaged spiritual practice where you "do as you are told". On a more subtle level though it has also become clear to me that it surely cannot be possible for me to discover and explore my own divinity (in which I am sovereign) through doing exactly what someone else tells me to do?Given my own experience, a little of which I have retold here, I cannot begin to express the impact Danielle's book (and other writing) has had in helping to heal these wounds I have carried for the last ten years, and also enriching my spiritual life in a way I had given up thinking was possible (as I could obviously never risk making the same mistake again of giving away my power to a spiritual teacher who would require me to blindly follow their lead). I thank you Danielle from the depths of my slowly healing heart.

    Ok. ? I do see why some people would like this, especially those just delving into paganism/witchyness, trying to find a place to fit in. Younger me that loved Women Who Run with the Wolves would have been all over this (I still have a soft spot for that book).

I do see why some people would like this, especially those just delving into paganism/witchyness, trying to find a place to fit in.

I had reasonable hope that this would be a book I'd enjoy, especially since this author blatantly states "the rejection of transgender women from traditional women's circles has been an unfortunate underhadned instrument of oppression labeled as feminism." (p. 6) Yes!But honestly, I couldn't finish it. Never mind the ~tantric~ and ~chakra~ stuff just seemingly thrown in without any mention of who and where these things come from, I thought the referring to the reader as "my love", "my sister", "my sister WITCH", "my BLESSED sister" and, the cringy "[comma] Woman" statements (i.e.: "gather these materials, Woman" p. 21, "I love you, Woman!" p. 136 "Artist you are, Woman" p.20), in every other sentence would stop after a while, but it didn't. It was ceaseless, and it really rustled my jimmies. It is also deeply embedded in the idea of duality, which doesn't resonate with me. And to be fair, duality is a thing in most pagan books, so this is not unique. There is also a deep focus on "divine destiny" (i.e. "you were born precisely at this time for a reason" p. 116) which also doesn't jive with me. It's just all over kind of "lovey" classic fluffy bunny stuff.It's to the point where I can't even finish this and I think it's going back to the bookstore this weekend. Oh wellllll.

Both were completely and utterly life changing and soul-awakening – understatement of the century – because they were centered around her bone-deep belief that women can (and should!

Both were completely and utterly life changing and soul-awakening – understatement of the century – because they were centered around her bone-deep belief that women can (and should! For the greater good of all!) reconnect with the power of their divine feminine energy. Reading “Woman Most Wild” feels like Danielle is sitting with me in circle once again, sharing her deep wisdom that has come from her own soul experience, a lifelong love of writing/reading/learning and her personal sadhana that embodies everything contained in this book. The meditations, rituals and other tools offer the ability for the reader to peel off layers of “self” that consciously or subconsciously may be suffocating our wildness – our inner child, our light, our deepest creativity and truths. This book is a simple yet profound guide for any human who wants to get back in touch with their soul – by waking back up to the cycles of nature, the power of simple ritual, and the trust in her intuition and wisdom. Whether you are drawn to the word “witch” as a powerful, yet rejected archetype, or you feel squeamish about the term completely – this book is still for you. You may not know me, but I promise you this anyway.
