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