Scapecoat healing retreat day - Women Who Run With Wolves
A powerful and transformative retreat day.
Saturday 7th October 9.30am - 10pm
“A scapecoat is a coat that details in painting, writing, and with all manner of things pinned and stitched to it… all the traumas, all the wounds, all the scars” (Pinkola-Estes. p.386).
This retreat day is inspired by Women Who Run with Wolves. It is designed to be a deeply healing and transformative experience. Scar tissue is stronger than skin that hasn’t been wounded. This retreat day will give you the opportunity to re-engage with past wounds and experiences so that you might recognise your strength, celebrate and heal your life’s ‘battle’ scars. Integrating experiences in this way, often results in new strength, vision, and energy within the psyche.
Working creatively enables access and dialogue with the subconscious, and will provide you with the opportunity within a supportive group to access your inner ‘wild’ self. We will draw on feminine archetypal knowledge and wisdom and provide creative materials for you to ‘tell’ your stories through the making of a scapecoat. The group will be facilitated by a number of planned exercises, but the day will also allow space for spontaneity, reflection and creative responding to the emerging processes of the group and individuals.
In order to provide a healing and nurturing space, numbers will be restricted to 12. The day is scheduled to last for 12 hours, ending with a celebration and a shared feast of healing and nurturing food. All creative materials, coat, lunch, dinner, refreshments will be provided.
Booking is essential!

A CPD certificate for 12 hours will be provided.
