This is my favorite of the "Myths and Stories of the Wise Woman Archetype" series. Clarissa Pinkola Estes disassembles the negative cultural messages we receive about our bodies and provides a series of healing stories, images, and ideas which hold the body as sacred, unique, infinitely precious and idiosyncratic. She threads vivid and unique multicultural metaphors and tales throughout the sessions.
Her voice, pacing, and accents enrich the experience. Hers is a vibrant presence. She brings stories and ideas from many cultures and her language and accents vary by culture.
This is book I will listen to again and again. I could not fully integrate the wealth of knowledge, wisdom and healing in one "reading." Don't miss this unique experience.
Clarissa never fails her audience! Standing ovation! I follow her work and this may be my favorite! Healing...renewing! Must ad to your collection of favorites!
This recording is wonderful to listen to or fall asleep to
Clarissa Pinkola Estes has an absolutely beautiful voice, and is a superb storyteller
This book is chock full of wisdom about the body, and is told in such a way as to invite the listener into their own inner wisdom about the body
The author's voice is so soothing and comforting she makes you forget whatever ails you. This book is a must read for anyone male or female who doubts their worth. Beautifully written and presented. My only criticism would be the repetitive sections at the beginning of each chapter.
Dr. Estes once again stunned me with her insightful, balanced ideas and relevant delivery. Listening to this work helps the reader to reap full benefits with the emotion and storytelling characteristic of Dr. Estes' voice. Recommended for all women but a must listen for mothers to be or those approaching middle age and beyond.
Dr. Clarissa Pinkola Estes is a powerful and engaging story teller. She makes you think about your own body in another way. The body is sacred and your companion on this journey and she wonderfully paints a picture of the bodies purpose and needs. She also does a blessing for your body after many chapters. It was yummy. I didn't want to stop listening. If you are a woman and want to look at bodies in another way, please listen to her ancient wisdom.
"soothing and inspiring"
The authors voice is very pleasant and she has such an open and friendly manner of speaking to the listener. Soothing and enchanting stories which, after absorbing them, become more and more relevant.
"deliciousness for the soul"
I love, love, love cpe and her way with words. this book is exceptionally beautiful and lets you see the multi layers of the soul and spirit intertwined with the body. it is a celebration of each individual and every body. especially loved hearing the aunt Edna stories. highly recommended for all women, but especially those who feel low self esteem and who need to be pieced back together and gently steered back to self love and self worth.
loved it. Will be on repeat many times. Thank you so much for such a beautiful gathering of stories and wisdom.
