Deep, Wise, Healing!

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.

The author is so wonderful to listen to. She has made me feel much better and taught me how to embrace my body and the aging process as well as dealing with illnesses that have come along. I recommend it highly

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.

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.

I just love this woman!

Wonderful as always. I always feel so inspired by Clarissa's writings. It's a time to feel like you fit, and to celebrate the wild woman within. Let her shine. Everything she writes, speaks fills me with a renewed sense of womanhood and wonder!
