Our topic for today’s discussion is Wild Woman – When did you see her last? We’re joined in the convertible by life coach and hospice educator/chaplain, Jade Young. After dealing with a series of personal losses, the death of loved ones, a difficult divorce, and experiencing serious burnout, Jade left the glitter and glitz of the big city – and relocated to a quiet, green oasis of a small countryside town on the Big Island of Hawaii. Her journey of healing from the inside out, of restoring her spiritual wellbeing, of finding joy and delight again, of rebuilding her health, opened the doors to re-visioning a new future for herself and reconnecting with the wild woman that had gone dormant for so long.

Inspired by the book Women Who Run with the Wolves by Dr. Clarissa Pinkola Estes, Jade shares how this transformed her lens as she celebrated her 50th birthday and beyond. We discuss burnout and tuning in to the signals our bodies are giving us. We talk about the importance of community and sisterhood when it comes to embracing our wild and why people are so afraid to show up as their truly authentic selves. We dig into the Mary Oliver quote, “So tell me, what do you plan to do with your one wild and precious life?” as we share stories about finding our wild woman and nurturing her.
