Redemption Prayer for the Wild Healer: An Excerpt from Woman Most Wild

“Dearly beloved, we are gathered here today to redeem the Wild Healer, the one who wielded so much feminine fortitude in her holy hands that she was feared, shunned, and cast out. We bow down to her now, this woman who was much like you, much like me. We have dug up her bones and laid them on our altars. We have lit candles for her, and now we pray that her ghost stand with us when we work our own healing magick for our wounded world.

Stand with us, Wild Healer, when our bodies are shamed, our sexuality caged, and our work discounted as less than. Stand with us when we are too tired to stand up for ourselves, and stand with us when we raise our swords high for the women of this world who yearn for liberation. Stand with us against all oppression, past, present, and future. Stand with us and raise your voice in a war cry against injustice. Stand with us in the most righteously raging solidarity there is, and, whatever you do, do not sit down.

Wild Healer, you are redeemed, for your bones symbolize our birthright. We weep for you, a woman who made vows to the sacred Earth with every seed she planted and every berry she harvested. We weep for the loss of your medicine, and we hold your ethereal hands now as we work our own magick. Wild healer, you are we, and we are you. In Her name, I pray.”

“Human beings are sensual bodies, creative and emotional minds, and conscious spirits; to deny the role of the feminine in the spiritual facets of our global community is to starve the spiritual dimensions not only of all women but of all of humankind.

Every time you honor the feminine divine as part of you, as alive and well inside your psyche and body, a quiver in the energetic web of divinity surrounds us all. Every time you give a nod to your Witch’s identity and acknowledge the wild within you, we move closer to a pan-gender-equal world. I urge you now to sense the profound truth of the feminine divine’s awakening…. She needs us, and we need Her. She is us, and we are Her. There is no wall between you and the sacred source, my love, so burn your shame…. Come to the temple with me, and light candles for Her. Let us show Her we have not forgotten our nature, and let us sing out in unity hymns we were forbidden to learn. Teach your daughters to roll in the mud with you, and teach your sons the merit of their tears. The scent of the charred skin of women burned for their healers’ beliefs still hangs thick in the air around us,my love, but do not be afraid, for She is with us.”

-From Chapter 7 in Woman Most Wild, The Wild Goddess Ministry
