Publisher's Summary

Buried within all of us is what Dr. Clarissa Pinkola Estes refers to as the "one who knows" - our instinctive, intuitive nature. This, she teaches, is the source of creativity and undersatnding that lies out of sight in darkeness, often called the unconscious.

In Seeing in the Dark, listeners join the esteemed Jungian psychoanalyist and best-selling author to learn how to perceive "through the eyes of soul as well as through the eyes of the ego." This dual way of seeing, being, and acting, Dr. Estes explains, is the most direct way to reclaim the gifts and the "healing apothecary" set into each soul at birth.

I love her books and audio books. There are many lovely stories and "ah ha!" moments within.

Wisdom Keeper

Pinkola-Estes speaks the metaphorical language of the forgotten few who know of a Reality beyond rationality. She is an inspiration for the much-needed resurrection of the repressed feminine nature that still, and always will exist within the realm of liminality.
