    "Wisdom and beauty"

    This is the first time I have written a review and I felt compelled to tell you that this is amazing. Clarissa Pinkola Estes style is a joy to listen to and I felt that I was on this amazing journey of discovery. I will definitely be getting Volume 2!

    "Theatre of the Imagination, Volume 1"

    I love it!!! Clarissa Pinkola Est?s'poesie and stories are mystical and profound. She is witty and funny. She has a way to talk to her audience which is very genuine and intimate.I feel that she is taking to me. I am moved by the weaving of her profound reflection with the lightness of her imagination. I will get the volume 2.

    "Chicken soup for the creative soul"

    Clarissa Pinkola Estes is the Malcolm Gladwell of Jungian theory, for good reason. Like Gladwell, she has extracted from a rich sea of theory a storyline that explains to us so much of our own experience, and validates so many hunches that lurk just below the radar, always niggling but never resolved. Although I find her narration corny at times, she's also a good story teller, and sets a delightful campfire-tales atmosphere. If Jungian archetypes resonate with you at all, you'll find a treasure trove in Estes. Creatives types, or anyone not fulfilled by culturally mainstream roles, will find powerful balm in her Theater of the Imagination series.

    "Just....WOW"

    I think I could listen to Clarissa's voice - forever. These stories have moved me deeply and I feel like a changed person after having listened to them. Beautiful, sensual, tragic - it's all here. What a spiritual feast and delight.

    I found this book inspirational, fascinating, and an excellent jumping off point for an exploration of Jungian psychology and archetypes.

    "A true story teller"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I have recommended this book to many friends.


    Have you listened to any of Clarissa Pinkola Estes’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I read "women who run with the wolves". Some of the stories are the same however there is added depth, and supporting stories that come with this reading.


    Any additional comments?

    I love to listen to her, she is really a great story teller.

    Story
    "So very worth it!"
    If you could sum up Theatre of the Imagination, Volume 1 in three words, what would they be?

    Heartfelt, fascinating and honest.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Theatre of the Imagination, Volume 1?

    The bringing to life much of Dr Estes' written work which I have followed for many years.


    Have you listened to any of Clarissa Pinkola Estes’s other performances? How does this one compare?

    At 7 plus hours it lasts but still doesn't seem long enough, the sections fly by so fast you just never want it to end!


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The chapter on the Ugly duckling moved me to tears because it felt as though she was reading it to me and me alone,


    Any additional comments?

    This book holds wisdom that can be heard on many levels. If you are a complete beginner through to a seasoned fan, there will be a lesson for all
