About the Author

Clarissa Pinkola Estes was born in Indiana in 1943 to parents of Spanish and Mexican ancestry, but was later adopted by Hungarian immigrants. She received her Ph.D. from the Union Institute in Cincinnati, Ohio, and was certified as a Jungian analyst in 1984. She worked as a psychoanalyst in private practice and developed and taught the Writing as Liberation of the Spirit program in state and federal prisons. Estes served as executive director of the C.G. Jung Center for Education and Research and cofounded and codirected Colorado Authors for Gay and Lesbian Equal Rights. One of Estes's better-known writings, Women Who Run with the Wolves: Myths and Stories of the Wild Woman Archetype (1992), is drawn from tales and myths she heard firsthand from members of such cultures as Asian, Mexican, African, and Greek. She also wrote The Gift of Story (1993). Her books can be found indexed under Psychology, Women's Studies, Mythology, Spiritual Development, and Poetry.

I had read Dr. Estes' book, Women Who Run With THe Wolves, several years ago. Listening brought back the disturbing and life-changing images and stories of the book. The 6 cassettes cover issues of intuition, body image, women's and mens experiences of sacred power, and much, much more. What I especially enjoyed was hearing Dr. Estes' voice and especially her laughter, which her books couldnt quite commuticate. I laughed, listened, cried, sighed from relief at truths spoken and wrestled with stories that poked at hidden places in my spirit. I highly recommend this,not as entertainment, but as soulfood.

I have used Clarissa Pinkola Estes' material in my psychotherapy practice for many years and have found that the stories help me clarify points and make connections in a rapid, yet heart-felt way. This collection of tapes covers a wonderful range of topics and includes stories that make you laugh and weep and shiver. Dr. Estes' voice is a remarkable gift and she uses it wisely and well. The live format is a wonderful surprise, showing her funny and spontaneous side, which is missing from her studio tapes. One tiny irritation for me was the opening music and narration, which was identical on all of the tapes. Because I consumed these tapes voraciously, one after another, this became annoying. That aside, I encourage anyone who likes a good story and, especially, anyone with some lingering issues to resolve, to sit back and enjoy an evening with Dr. Estes. She is one of a kind.

This collection of stories, poems, myths, and Dr. Estes' interpretations will truly amaze you. I listened to the tapes while driving to and from work and also while doing housework. I could not wait until the next listen! Dr. Estes is an exceptional storyteller. Not only does her voice carry such wonder and awe, but it also builds suspense at the right bends and curves of each story. If you love storytelling and the world of the human imagination, you will cherish this collection. Listening to the tapes is nothing less than a celebration of being human. This collection should appeal to all, but especially to women who enjoy exploring spirituality and psychology.

This set is a must have! The warmth, humor and wisdom contained in these tapes will last you a lifetime. Dr. Estes is an unbelievable author and storyteller in print, but if you've never heard her voice - prepare to be mesmerized!!

Clarissa Pinkola Estes shares her stories in a lyric style. Her presentation of myths and tales are full of thought-provoking ideas and is presented in her soothing, poetic voice. I think the live audience is a great addition to the recording, it made me feel as though I were right there in the room. Needless to say, I love listening to the tapes, and I learn something new everytime.
