Publisher's Summary

The Archetypal Power in Women's Dreams

Every night of our lives, we experience between five and seven dreams, each reflecting our most intimate passions and conflicts. Dr. Clarissa Pinkola Estés compares each one to a riddle. Once solved, it can provide a surprising answer to an unresolved question buried within the psyche. On In the House of the Riddle Mother, Estés surveys the most common archetypal patterns women experience while dreaming. Based on 20 years of work, this audio seminar is a dense, poetic storehouse of information about the dream life of women. Information is divided into 17 instructive sections, each devoted to analyzing distinct dream motifs.

Inspiring and Educational

I really enjoyed this book. There are many wonderful stories shared in this book that resonated with my own life. I also enjoyed listening to the dreams of others and what they might signify.

I'm going through a major change in my life, I feel the stories contained within are very supportive of a woman seeking to take hold of her own power.

Profoundly nourishing and inspiring

I absolutely adore everything that comes out of Clarissa 's mouth! Truly divine. As someone who has a very colorful dream life, I already get a lot out of writing down and pondering on my dreams, but this book immediately gave me deeper insights and a richer way to interpret them. I find her voice so soothing, I just love listening in bed before I go to sleep.
