Dark and Light by Hayley Jane & the Wild Women

“This is the best worst time for a retreat,” she said as she arrived at This Wonderful Place for the Wild Woman Retreat. A common thread for many of the women, they were all so grateful that even though they had many obstacles come in their way, they got on their planes or hopped in their cars and made the journey.

What we experienced that weekend was, to quote the attendees, “Life changing.”

Rainbows, unicorns and sparkles (literally and figuratively) made many appearances throughout the weekend, but so did darkness. A lot of it.

There’s a great power in sharing your shadows with others. We’ve all got em and it’s time to stop pushing them down and/or hiding them. It’ll eat you alive. By speaking out loud about the dark side, something really special happened that surprised many.

The shadows that people were so scared to share (some for many many many years), were found in some way in each and every woman in attendance. No one is alone in their mucky humanness. 

Exhale. Phew. Halle-freakin-lujah!

Sharing the dark didn’t make anyone less lovable either. The affect was the opposite. We fell in love even harder.

Dark doesn’t equal bad just as light doesn’t equal good. And that’s just perfect. 

We collaborated with songwriting magician Hayley Jane on this subject and a beautiful song happened.
