Where is the memory of who we really are, who sent us here, and what our work is here? And why so often are we feeling unusual, so different, so eccentric, so belonging to a tribe of one? Dr. Clarissa Pinkola Estes, published in 34 languages and one of the most far-reaching artist-psychoanalyists of our time, teaches that in archetypal imagination, "Mother Night is the quintessential medial woman, the woman who can walk in two worlds... 'the one who knows' and who can reveal solid ways of living and unleashing creative life in both worlds."

Contrary to the opinions of the first reviewer, I found the narrator to be immediately engaging. Actually, Dr. Estes is not "narrating" this audiobook, but talking directly to you--and talking with considerable warmth, humor, intelligence and, most importantly, deep insight into the "medial" mind, the creative psyche, its trials and triumphs. With her story-telling, Estes takes you almost magically to a place within yourself, your intuitive self, where a kind of deep knowing becomes a luminous presence and creative ideas rise to the surface. Her voice, her insights, and her wonderful stories are as powerful, imaginative, and true as ever.
This is another sad example of an author who should not read their own work. Her coma-inducing tone and frequent, useless pauses take away from what she is actually trying to say. I can't listen to her. The content sounded pretty interesting, and if Audible offered it with another reader, I would get it. I just cannot listen to Pinkola Estes.
