Today, it’s my pleasure to share a short review of Woman Most Wild (New World Library) along with a kick ass interview with authoress and wild woman, Danielle Dulsky.
From the Back Cover of “Woman Most Wild”:
Discover an Ancient Path to Power, Wisdom & Magick
What do you think of when you hear the word witch? Through centuries of persecution, our society has been indoctrinated into thinking that witches are evil villains. Author and proud witch, Danielle Dulsky debunks this interpretation and reveals the true nature of Witchcraft: an ancient spiritual path that rejects religious dogma in favor of female empowerment and a deep reverence for the Earth. In a collaborative, conversational tone, Woman Most Wild reclaims the Earth-centered power of aligning with our wildest, freest selves to create an inclusive world for all.
Enjoy listening to This Truth, narrated by me to bring more life into this beautiful poem at the beginning of Woman Most Wild.
As a Transformation Goddess and wild woman in the throes of helping women reclaim their feminine sovereignty, Woman Most Wild felt like it was written for me. Danielle walks her readers through intimate stories, supportive exercises, healing relaxations, Yoga, Moon rituals, Chakra teachings, and Circle Work to illuminate the magic, mystery and healing power of liberating our inner Witch.
‘This Truth’ drew me in and the Verses of the Holy Feminine deepened my engagement with every verse.
When you pick up a copy of this potent and energizing book, you’ll learn the three keys to liberating your inner witch and owning your feminine power. The 3 Keys include:
• Wild Rhythm: aligning yourself with the cycles of nature
• Wild Ritual: understanding the importance of ritual and ceremony
• Wild Circle: bonding with like-minded seekers

What was your inspiration for writing Woman Most Wild?
The wild feminine and specifically women’s relationship with Her is the inspiration for everything I write. I wanted to write a book that offered women permission to claim the name “Witch” as their own, a book that rejected religious hierarchy in favor of the organic, cyclical Mystery that is the divine feminine. It is an act of spiritual empowerment to call yourself a Witch, a name that need not be associated with any specific tradition or religion, and I believe wild women are change-agents tasked with dismantling mechanisms of oppression and coming together in the name of global healing.
What do you love most about sharing your new book with the world?
I love that I live in a world where the wild feminine can speak and be heard, whether through me or through other feminist voices; I want to never take that for granted.
What teachings will women come away with after reading your book?
The book offers the “three keys to the broom closet;” these are Wild Rhythm, Wild Ritual, and Wild Circle. Each chapter unpacks these forces in a different way, with the reader encouraged to explore the recommendations described in the book in order to hand-craft her own, personally meaningful spiritual practice.
Tell me about the women you love to serve?
Spontaneously in a women’s circle years ago, I said I loved working with “women who are right on the edge,” women who are the verge of some great personal discovery, women who have been to hell, women who feel a spiritual void but are unsure how to describe it…. I love serving all women, but I am not in the business of forcing my philosophy on anyone. I respect the journey of every unique soul, and I resonate with women who, like me, have felt a spiritual ache in response to the divine feminine’s absence in our society.
Where can Transformation Goddess readers pick up a copy of Woman Most Wild?
If you could name a single message that your book is offering, what is it?
Every woman is the divine feminine embodied, and every woman, regardless of her background or experience, has the right to claim the name Witch as her own.
What do you believe is the future of wild woman spirituality? Where is all of this headed?
I believe we are heart-deep in the crucible of transformation right now, and the Witch will play a pivotal role in the future of humanity. Honoring every individual’s soulful and spiritual autonomy is crucial to global healing, and, the more we circle together, communicate with one another, and generally refuse to sit down and shut-up, the more we will be able to resist and transform the outmoded, oppressive structures of our world.
Now that you’ve birthed your book, what are you focusing on?
I’m traveling a lot this summer, spreading the Witchy word far and wide.
Thanks for the opportunity to share my book with you and your readers.
