~ Reclaiming Artemis: Calling Passion, Power and Wildness Back Into Your Life!~
(link to detailed description of Reclaiming Artemis )


By connecting with our Inner Warrior and the Goddess Artemis, in this four week online course, we will learn to empower ourselves, set strong boundaries and live an intuitive, authentic life filled with passion, power and wildness.  We do this through spending time in nature, listening to the call of the wild within, and following the passions of our heart.  We learn to speak our truth, act on our own behalf, and take the time and space we need to listen to ourselves.  In this way we infuse our life with energy, joy and power!

Course goals: ~To develop a strong bond with your Inner-Warrior and the Artemis-Within you so that you have this amazing ally by your side at all times.

~To Create an altar that is a physical, symbolic embodiment of your empowered, courageous, beautiful, joyful, and strong self where you can spend time creating, reading, meditating, doing ritual or being in solitude.

~To reclaim and reconnect to nature and the wild, free-spirit that is your birthright so that you may hear her intuitive and instinctual calls and loyally follow them through.

~To  become more comfortable speaking your truth, setting boundaries and taking space alone for healing, adventure, exploration, solitude or anything else you need.

Although Melissa has studied with many wonderful and wise teachers throughout the last twenty six years, many of her most profound teachings have come from the everyday women and men who have inspired her with their own life stories. For this she is eternally grateful. And to all of the women who's tables she has sat around sharing cups of tea, potluck meals, stories and laughter ~ she is also grateful ~ for these are the intuitive, soulful Wise Woman ways that infuse us with the very deepest teachings about ourselves, each other and the world around us on our journey through life.

I'm very grateful to Melissa Potter for creating and offering the course, Reclaiming Artemis: Calling Passion, Power and Wildness Back into Your Life at Wise Woman University.

When signing up for this online course, I did not expect the individual care that Melissa took in answering my introduction with a meditation for healing. It was a powerful healing for me on a physical level and helped to release my emotional blockages to healing.

I appreciate Melissa's wise words and guidance, visualisations and inspiring quotes and poems. Melissa helped me discover my Artemis strength to heal my hurt child self. This has been priceless counselling for me and has indeed been life affirming and life changing.

As I completed each lesson, I was amazed how each lesson really did appear at just the right time. New people and places and opportunities would open up and then reading the outline of the next lesson I would discover that the course and Melissa were there to guide me through my next life lesson yet again.

Melissa's feedback was always warm and wise and wonderful. I found Melissa very insightful and encouraging and she helped me discover my joy of journalling and sharing with herself and the other wise woman of the course, other people online and my friends and family.

The Reclaiming Artemis course helped me get to know myself and to love this self enough, to have the confidence to share my true self with others. The lessons inspired me to write poetry and to meditate and visualise. To tap into the strength of Artemis within me and my love of nature.

Through the Artemis Course, I really have opened myself up to life, to gathering strength from nature rather than withdrawing into it, opening my heart to people and also to knowing and loving myself enough to be true and truthful to myself. It is through Melissa's guidance and support as a mentor that I have been able to do this. To be able to express myself without being marked or judged but mentored and loved is one of the most precious gifts I have ever received.

Thank you Melissa, I wholeheartedly recommend your course Reclaiming Artemis for healing, for creativity and for getting to know your inner strength and therefore yourself.
