Drawing from her work as a psychoanalyst and cantadora (keeper of old stories), Dr. Estes uses myths and folktales to illustrate how societies systematically strip away the feminine spirit. Through an exploration into the nature of the wild woman archetype, Dr. Estes helps listeners rediscover and free their own wild nature.

"Her widely researched study offers usable advice for modern women." (Publishers Weekly)
This is the kind of work that will reveal more meaning every time it's read/listened to. This is particularly wonderful as Dr. Pinkola Estes is the narrator. Beautifully written, inspiring content, and well delivered.
This Woman Clarissa Pinkola Estes is an amazing woman with an amazing gift of story telling with passion that motivates you to keep listening. When the book is finished you so wish it would keep going. Each of her stories have deep meaning that go right to your bones.
Listening to the abbridged version by Estes' own magnificent voice was bewitching. However I was deeply disappointed when the performance turned out to be a very short summary of the original work. Please specify this for consumers.
how is signature different from name? meh?
I wish I'd read this 10 years before it was ever written. And then repeatedly.
Dr. Clarissa Pinkola Estes weaves a yarn like no other. All of her stories are lessons which can be re-listened to and with each listen, new information is gained.
I had hoped it was the entire book not just the first two chapters
The realness and how easy it can be applied to life and living.
This was a new experience.
The very soul of of who you are can never be destroyed.
