Clarissa Pinkola Estes, Ph.D., is an award-winning poet, senior Jungian psychoanalyst, and a cantadora (keeper of the old stories of the Latina tradition). Dr Estes founded and directs human rights educational organisation, La Sociedad de Guadalupe, which broadcasts, via audio, throughout the world. She uses the power of metaphor and the art of storytelling to guide listeners through unfamiliar doors of perception and observation- we return with more of ourselves.
The work shows the reader how glorious it is to be daring, to be
caring and to be women. Everyone who can read should read this
In a modern world that limits wisdom to 'facts' and women's access even to those, Dr Estés has restored the fire - for us all.
This volume reminds us that we are nature for all our sophistication, that we are still wild, and the recovery of that vitality will itself set us right in the world
*Thomas Moore, author of Care of the Soul*
A life-enhancing way to make contact with our deep feminine instincts: the wild woman within
All women should read this. In fact, mothers should pass the knowledge contained in these pages down to their daughters as they turn 16. It's insightful and inspirational and gets you back in touch with your authentic self.
