Counseling & Retreats

"Climb up to the cave. Crawl through the window of a dream. Sift through the desert and see what you find... Go gather bones." -Dr. Clarissa Pinkola Estés


Counseling | Retreats | Sacred Medicines

Throughout time, people have gathered in caves for visioning, ritual, and prayer. Caves are places of mystery and deep reflection, offering an invitation to return to the Earth for primal nourishment and rebirth. The Cavewoman Way brings the cave journey to life through soulful events, Transpersonal Counseling, and Nature-Based Retreats plus immersive experiences like Cave Quests and Sacred Plant Medicine. Michelle Rigling, PhD offers in-person services in Chattanooga, TN as well as travel-based and virtual sessions by request.
