Clarissa Pinkola Estes at her best

I've read Women who run with the Wolves many times and think it is totally wonderful. This is a great collection of short tales and wisdom in a similar vein from Clarissa. She has such a beautiful voice and is so eloquent and easy to listen to. If you liked Women who run with the wolves you'll love this!

inspiring

i love dr clarissa's voice, which is so soothing as if it comes from beneath waterfalls. i found the content quite dense so for me this was not a quick or easy listen, i woukd pause several times and only listen to small sections at a time, but found it very inspiring and enriching overall, and helpful for me to understand my own creative process.

Poetry

I would however also say that it might not be everyones cup of tea, so I would recomend listening to the sample before purchasing.

damnnnnn indescribably good

her soothing voice and words of absolute wisdom and gold are life changing things.

The use of fables and stories to assign characters to specific parts of a persons psyche makes so much sense and is so beautiful and easy to digest.

I think she must be an angel ✨
