`The wild woman carries the bundles for healing; she carries everything a woman needs to be and know. She carries the medicine for all things.' Within each of us there is an innately healthy and intuitive creature, sure in her instincts, passionate about her creative work, gifted as a healer and blessed with an ageless wisdom. For centuries, this wild woman has been repressed by a value system that has trivialized women's emotions and attempted to deny their power. The effects of this repression include nervous breakdown, lethargy, unhappy relationships, and a lack of direction, purpose and self-confidence. Through what she calls `psychic archaeological digs' carried out with the aid of a huge range of multicultural myths and stories, the author shows how women can reclaim the feminine power that is their common birthright.
