I rarely mix my work life and my personal book interests here on Goodreads, but this time I have to make an exception. This is a brilliantly wonderful, empowering book. Danielle has a wonderful, poetic writing style that feels rich and velvety while still infused with empowerment and energy. Now more than ever, we all need to embrace our inner feminine power (no matter where you find yourself gender-wise) and this book goes in depth on how to do just that. I can't say enough good things about th ...more

Ok. ? I do see why some people would like this, especially those just delving into paganism/witchyness, trying to find a place to fit in. Younger me that loved Women Who Run with the Wolves would have been all over this (I still have a soft spot for that book). I had reasonable hope that this would be a book I'd enjoy, especially since this author blatantly states "the rejection of transgender women from traditional women's circles has been an unfortunate underhadned instrument of oppression lab ...more

From start to finish of "Woman Most Wild: Three Keys to liberate the Witch Within," my eyes were glued to the magically empowering words Danielle Dulsky surged through my eyeballs. This book shared with my soul, a witch I had forgotten was within me. I cried tears of release, had deep belly laughs throughout while finding the key to unlock my inner witchy woman. From reading "Woman most wild," I realized I had really become isolated from nature's magick, and I've already started wandering back o ...more

Honestly, not at all what I was expecting, as a practicing witch for 35 years, this isn't so much about becoming a witch as it is about opening up to spirituality instead of religion. There isn't much here that is overtly witchy. Yes there are meditations, (Many, most of the book is really meditation exercises that are presented in a smoother than saying, "Try this meditation."

While it does talk about opening yourself up with a very brief overview of several practices witches may take place in,

It took me a long time to read this, not because I didn't like it but because it sat on my bedside table, to be dipped into just when the spirit moved me. Danielle's writing style won't be to everyone's taste, but it's right smack in my moan zone. I just love it. Rich, vivid, evocative, descriptive, delicious. Can't even tell you much about the content, although it must be at least good enough not to yank me out of the reading moment. Mostly, for me, this book was about feeling and sensation. Go ...more

This book actually howls as you eat of its delicious powerful medicinal words. It is an enchanting journey into the realm of the sacred divine feminine....I truly suggest this book for all women regardless of spiritual practice, race and or culture. It is incredibly diverse and serves as a great tool for awakening and healing the collective wound by channeling your inner power and remembering what we were taught to forget ...... powerful .... mind blowing ... soul charging .....

Although I don't identify as a Witch myself I identified deep down in my soul with Danielle's words, imagery and writings. Reading this book I felt as if Danielle channeled my grandmother and all my ancestors before her and they are telling me to reconnect with the Earth and all of her wisdom. I would recommend this to anyone who is looking to reclaim her (or his) wild self and get back to their roots. I will be giving this a second read.

I don't know where to begin. Danielle's words of power found me first via Facebook; article after article she lifted me up from the ashes and reminded me of my inherent Shakti fire and wild nature. Fast forward to receiving a copy of this book (which I was so honored and blessed to receive) and it was page after page of me screaming, "YES, YES, YES!". Her words are woven spells; like a spider web draws in prey, this book will surely capture you, too--in the best way possible.

Danielle Dulsky has chosen, in this life, to be an unhindered prophet for the return of the divine feminine and the reclamation of our witchy blood and bones. She has provided us this flowing vessel of Woman Most Wild, burning with the purest, loving, non-judgemental, and all accepting forms of wildness and spirituality. Woman Most Wild inspires an elemental path forward in this quest. I want to memorize this book. I want to fill some sacred space of everyday with these words that linger on my e ...more
Actual Rating 2,5 Stars

This book is... well in all honesty I do not know WHAT this book is, it is like reading a clone of another book you have read many times and expecting that it will change like the book in Never Ending Story... I gave it a try and was not able to connect with it at this present time; I will reread it again sometime in the future, to see if it might yield better results for my self-development.
Apr 30, 2017 rated it it was amazing
This book is so brilliantly written that it will remain next to me for a long time to come. Dulsky seemed to be speaking directly to my soul as she delves into every aspect of our deep rooted feminine power and through ritual, meditation, yoga and so much more brings it all bubbling to the conscious surface.

I resonated with something on every page and thought to myself "here is someone who truly gets what it means to be a woman and walk in this world."

I was fortunate to receive an advanced copy

In the last chapter of her book, Danielle Dulsky writes that "there is no turning back now, witch" - and this is sure to be the exact experience that anyone who reads "Woman Most Wild"undergoes. Once they've been blessed and transformed by Danielle's words they will be deep in the thick of their wild woman spirituality, reclaiming their birthrights to wildness. Not only does Danielle's fiery spirit add spark and encouragement to every page, but this book covers literally every subject someone co ...more

This is less of a BOOK & more like a bible I will forever reference. This is a must read for anyone wanting to learn how to live in sync with the cycles of nature.

Shelves: pagan-witchcraft
When I first began walking the Pagan path, I was drawn to the more structured nature of Wicca--I needed the guidance and I needed that stability. Also, I found that people reacted better to "I'm Wiccan" than "I'm a Witch," and other people's opinions of me mattered very much to me back then. However, as I grew in my Craft and developed some self-esteem, I discovered that even Wicca had its limitations and I wanted something wilder. Reading Danielle's book has irrevocably changed my path for the ...more

Potent. Activating. Rich. Powerful. A book for any woman calling her power back. A guide for any woman wanting to drum her spirit back to life. Danielle's words weaves a sacred dance in the soul. I feel so blessed to have read this book already. And, I will take it in again and share it with all the women in my life that I love because my hope is that we can all live free, wild, and liberated. This a book that women in modern times need holds so much ancient wisdom from the women that came befor ...more

What I value most about this book is how well it serves the feminist mystic who is looking for empowerment and an inspiring framework for navigating life through the lens of feminine divinity... rather than a detailed rigid spiritual philosophy which robs you of your own innate sacred power and offers no space for self-definition.
It is of course this non-hierarchical flexible approach which makes it both innately feminine and - for me - is at the root of its immense power and contribution to th

“Danielle Dulsky has dared to reclaim [the word witch] in this deeply alchemical and passionate book. Not only does she brave the word, but she also restores the rich, embodied meanings and uses it inspires. Dulsky speaks from deep in her soul to deep in our souls.”

Sadly this became a 2 star read. I have highlighted a lot of parts that were good but the incessant ", sister witch", "magickal yogini", "mistress of manifestation", and "dear witch seraphim" (???) etc and overly dramatic prose I just.. I couldn't absorb the messages she was putting out there; because all this flourish acted as a thick wad of padding over the substance and it was just hard to slice through that to get to the meat.
Just.. simple is better. You don't have to wax poetic and dramatic

This book actually book is very empowering. I suggest this book or anyone not matter your feeling on religion or spirituality. It however might go over better with Women than men and tends to lean more towards the female audience.

Danielle has a very melodic and calming effect in her writing. Almost as if she is telling a story rather than informing her audience.

Now I will not go as far to say she unlocked my inner witch, and I feel more connect to nature but I enjoy reading about how I can take

I'm still reading but having a hard time getting through .. I was SO excited for this book, and it is so, so elegant and poetic and raw at times, but I find it gets so mired down in methaphor and stories and typical new age archetype, her words tangle up on each other and any meaning meant to be derived falls lost on the reader .. it's more a collection and extension of her wonderful and gritty writing already floating around and doesn't present as anything new or fresh. Just a bigger sounding b ...more
I found Dulsky's constant refrain of woman/my love/Witch/etc to be tiresome. Here and there, I think it would've been great, but she did it too often. That said, there's some really great info in here, particularly for new witches who aren't sure where their path lies, or for witches forming a new circle. I'm torn on whether to recommend this, because I found the tone a bit wearing, but there's such beautiful language here. I took copious notes in my grimoire and found it useful, so ultimately t ...more

I gave this 3/5 stars when I finished it in December 2018 after starting it in at least June 2017 but decided to add a star when I realized how much I had underlined going back through it and finding a few new things as well. I also realized then why the "woman" and "she" references weren't sitting well with me having more recently realized that I am non binary. But even this, Dulsky addresses toward the end saying of a future vision, "I saw still more children rejecting gender altogether, for t ...more

I have had the pleasure and challenge of reconnecting with my inner “Wild Woman” through direct teachings from the author’s 200 hour and 500 hour yoga teacher trainings. Both were completely and utterly life changing and soul-awakening – understatement of the century – because they were centered around her bone-deep belief that women can (and should! For the greater good of all!) reconnect with the power of their divine feminine energy. Reading “Woman Most Wild” feels like Danielle is sitting wi ...more

This is a book about healing: reconnecting with the cycles of nature;
The cycles of life are discussed in-depth with very practical exercises;
I am convinced that this book can help you hear the soft whisper of the tune of your own song;
If you are interested in discovering your personal myth, this book has some good exercises for it, like writing the story of your life as an epic myth titled “The Woman Most Wild”;

This book was exactly what I was looking for at exactly the time I needed it. Dulsky begins the book with the intention that reading it would simulate us sitting at a table, or on a couch, discussing ancient wisdom and the practices of the modern witch. And it was. Unlike Spiral Dance, this book does not lay down rigid bylaws and methods one needs to practice in order to consider themselves a witch, or someone who practices magic. Rather she reveals patterns and practices we've done or already a ...more

This book is really dense, yet very informative. If you want a book that is full of rituals, spells, charms, and self-care tips for every occasion, then you should definitely pick this book up. I don’t suggest a read through like a normal book, but instead use this as a reference or a guide to look up the things you need for the time of month or year. I’ll be keeping this book on my witchy bookshelf and using it as a reference for when I need a ritual for a specific time.

I couldn't get through it. The introduction was very gripping but the flowery prose of the book just became too much for me, as did the many womb references. The intro said trans women were welcome but did have a lot of very physical language that might make some trans women uncomfortable? Just not for me. ...more

I loved this book. The only thing that bothered me (Slightly) is that she continually would refer to you as a "witch". Although many women identify with this title, I would have preferred "divine feminine" or "Priestess"... but who knows, maybe that's a trigger I need to address!

Great read... and she gives A LOT of practices to connect with the feminine spirit (within and without).
