Praise for Call of the Wild:

“Kimberly is a conduit for deep repair. She changed the course of my healing trajectory through her guidance. Her humanizing approach to trauma makes space for you to gently unpack your wounds and then apply life-changing tools at the dosage that feels right for you. She's brilliant and so is this book.”
Erica Chidi

“Kimberly Johnson is a fresh voice, tracking a deep sense of trust in the physicality of being human. Her directives emerge from an inner knowing that meets eye to eye with our current neuroscience. Call of The Wild is a practical guide for women searching to not only embody their inner jaguar as a source of resiliency but also empower their sense of agency in an emerging new world.”
Liz Koch
Author of Stalking Wild Psoas: Embodying Your Core Intelligence
“Kimberly Ann Johnson’s clear and inviting guide boldly points us toward the evolution of the field of somatics. Not only does she help each one of us recover from trauma but also to engage our vitality and awaken our sensual aliveness. This wise and accessible extension of Somatic Experiencing (SE) will no doubt shift popular understandings of psychology and trauma to include our bodies, nervous systems, and fundamental life force.”

Big concepts are made digestible. Delicate nuances are made approachable and meaningful.

A critical must-read guidebook for women, by a woman on trauma, sexuality, the nervous system and real sustainable healing."

Book club discussion guide

Do you run a book club, or a women’s circle? I’d love to meet you!

We’ve created a group facilitators discussion guide and a replay from the inaugural book club meeting with author Kimberly Ann Johnson. We will model how we can put the material into action, and set in motion a new kind of gathering.

A Jaguar circle.

*We’ll also include access to a curated Jaguar spotify playlist to share with your cirlce.

Women are stuck in a cycle of trauma, collectively and individually.

This is how we break it.

It’s not just you — women all around the world are experiencing record levels of stress, anxiety, depression, and autoimmune issues. 

The truth is, many women are stuck in a cycle of trauma, with no idea how to heal from it. What’s worse, most of the resources out there for healing trauma are written from a male perspective, which makes them ineffective for women, because they heal differently.

Call of the Wild is the answer. 

Drawn from Kimberly’s years of experience as a somatic practitioner and an advocate and authority for women’s health, Call of the Wild reveals what we should have all learned in middle school: the practical workings of our body and nervous systems. 

By understanding your “operating system”, you can start to work with your body, instead of against it — and transform unprocessed trauma. You’re able to get back in touch with the natural cycle of your body, and allow yourself to heal, and in doing so, contribute to the collective healing of women as a whole.

You'll learn:

  1. Why women are stuck in a cycle of trauma, and why most of the resources out there aren’t designed to work with the way women heal.
  2. Practical steps to take if you feel like you’re under attack from your own body.
  3. How to activate a healthy fight response (which is the total opposite of what you’ve been taught, and which is key to healing.)
  4. The relationship between trauma and your body, and how you can transform past trauma into present power.
  5. How to speak your nervous system’s “language” so you can work with it, instead of against it
  1. What it actually takes to create the relationship and sex life you want.
  2. Accessible, practical exercises to read and react to the messages your body’s sending you.
  3. The keys to establishing a sense of safety and security within yourself, no matter what external circumstances you face.
  4. How to take meaningful and tangible action in response to the issues of boundaries and power that have been centered in the #MeToo and Black Lives Matter movements.
  5. Simple, effective ways to reconnect with the natural cycle of your body (no matter where you are in life) and allow yourself to truly relax, feel safe, and heal from physical and emotional trauma.
