“What do we wish for?
To be whole. To be complete.
Wildness reminds us what it means to be human,
what we are connected to rather than
what we are separate from.”

– Terry Tempest Williams

The Wild Feminine weaves personal and archetypal stories and dreams together for a soulful and inspiring call to action. Through poignant, humorous, and deeply felt presentations of her life, Dr. Marilyn strikes a chord with all of us in whom the Wild Feminine is ready to emerge.

These stories are designed to awaken a feminine consciousness and bring wild feminine power and wisdom back to the world. In this book, we see how to open to mystery and learn to trust our inner wisdom. The Wild Feminine invites you to connect to your wild souls and move into the world with your intuition, creativity, and the power of love.

Dr. Marilyn Steele

What an ocean of beauty! The Wild Feminine gathers a woman’s deeply cherished experience of the wild feminine in stories that beautifully elucidate so many profound truths about life – those she has learned and those she has always known. Overflowing with wisdom, Dr. Marilyn’s book will be a blessing wherever it goes.

I was riveted by Dr. Marilyn Default, a harrowing account of harassment at the hands of predatory credit card companies. It’s a story that no one should have to live through, and yet so many people do. Steele broadens the scope of her article near the end, touching on homelessness, poverty, illness, war—and for this too, she is to be commended.

Becky Tuch, Writer & Founder , The Review Review online

I just read your article Spider Woman Speaks published in the current SageWoman. I was ecstatic! Your words are music!  I am not alone! The final victory is not mine alone, all of us share the fruit!  We complement instead of compete. The ‘wild’ in me is now validated.
