Book Description

Is modern man out of touch with his instinctual self? On The Boy Who Married an Eagle, Dr. Clarissa Pinkola Estes draws from a wealth of traditional myths and stories to fashion this lyrical investigation into the masculine soul. Join this analyst and author of the landmark bestseller Women Who Run with the Wolves as she combines heroic tales with Jungian perspectives on the male individuation process. Includes folk stories and myths from Zuni, classical Greek, Hopi, and Assyrian cultures.

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.

So much more than just a "guy thing"! Sheds refreshing light and insight into the psyche and collective consciousness of men. Worth the listen for men *and* women.

The masculine soul needs to have means to understand itself. How much richer and more satisfying would life be when it's understood and valued properly. Dr. Clarissa Pinkola Estes is a great scholar and a skillful storyteller. We all love stories. We need them, they teach and heal us, they give inspiration and insight, they illuminate the life path. When your own understanding matures, you'll have what it takes to find your inner resources and life becomes so much more.

Amazon's description of this product is very misleading. I thought I was ordering a collection of coming of age stories for boys. Not so! I found it to be deeply disturbing myself, never mind my 13 yr. old son. This might be of interest to a college-level student studying myths and folklore. Even so, you'll have to put up with a nauseatingly self-righteous voice in a very annoying tone.
