Some days I am more wolf than woman, and I am still learning how to stop apologizing for my wild.

~ Nikita Gil


In 1995, the grey wolf was reintroduced into Yellowstone National Park, and this reintroduction had a profoundly positive cascading effect on the entire ecosystem of the park. Through the wolves following their natural, instinctual, wild behaviors, the flora and fauna of the park restored, the waterways returned and stabilized, and life bloomed in places where it had been eroded and missing for years.

At Shakti Rising we believe that women are the wolves of our time

We believe that the world needs women who are willing to stand at the edges, to see the realities of the world and all of its suffering clearly while working towards manifesting a clear vision of what could be - right now.

Do you know what it takes to be a visionary leader?

The Wolves & Waterways Leadership Immersion is an individually tailored and targeted program that sits at the intersection between your needs, skills and desired outcomes and the emergent design and transformation principles that inform the heart of Shakti Rising.

Your Immersion will be customized specifically for you over a 1 month or a 3 month season, and it will flow with the natural rhythms of nature, the dream space and the feminine.

The 1 month program is specifically designed to support women leaders who are in transition, need respite from “business as usual” and want to be immersed in a soulful way of living and leading. The 3 month season is for women who have big vision and want to be fully in integrity with living and leading from the feminine.


Wolves & Waterways is an evidence based program utilizing contemporary research and 18 years of practical, cutting edge experience in developing leaders, transforming communities and changing cultures.

Our methods, once viewed ahead of their time and unconventional, are becoming increasingly championed due to the work of visionaries such as Terry Tempest Williams, whose students practice their governance based on the behavior of wolves and other leaders; Brene Brown, Clarissa Pinkola Estes, Simon Sinek, Peter Senge and more.
