(Note: this is not the audiobook of Women Who Run With the Wolves)
First published three years before the print edition of Women Who Run With the Wolves made publishing history, this original audio edition quickly became an underground bestseller. For its insights into the inner life of women, it established Dr. Clarissa Pinkola Estés as one of the most important voices of our time in the fields of Jungian psychology, myth, and women's mysteries.
Drawing from her work as a psychoanalyst and cantadora ("keeper of the old stories"), Dr. Estés uses myths and folktales to illustrate how societies systematically strip away the feminine spirit. Through an exploration into the nature of the wild woman archetype, Dr. Estés helps listeners rediscover and free their own wild nature.
Stories and prayers for connecting to the fierce and loving force of the Blessed Mother.
“There is a promise Holy Mother makes to us,” explains Dr. Clarissa Pinkola Estés, “that any soul needing comfort, vision, guidance, or strength can cry out to her, flee to her protection, and Blessed Mother will immediately arrive with veils flying. She will place us under her mantle for refuge, and give us the warmth of her most compassionate touch, and strong guidance about how to go by the soul’s lights.” Untie the Strong Woman is Dr. Estés' invitation to come together under the shelter of The Mother—whether she appears to us as the Madonna, Our Lady of Guadalupe, or any one of her countless guises.
The Red Shoes is a dramatic excursion into the realm of the soul with analyst Dr. Clarissa Pinkola Estés. Using an ancient tale deeply rooted in our collective psyches, Dr. Estés illuminates how people fall prey to destructive impulses while seeking to balance their inner lives.
In our culture, she begins, we may travel life's path in one of two ways: in handmade shoes, crafted with love and care according to the unique needs of the individual soul; or in Red Shoes, which promise instant fulfillment, but ultimately lead to a painful, hollow, and split existence.
By listening to your instinctive forces, she says, you can free yourself of the exterior traps that torment and destroy the soul. This is the way to construct a life that is uniquely your own; a life made by hand.
There is a gift so simple that it requires no ribbons for wrapping, yet which is so miraculous, it has the power to transform our lives. This is The Gift of Story, a tale of love and wisdom from Dr. Clarissa Pinkola Estés, eminent psychoanalyst and author.
When an old woman flees to a hut in a lonely forest, begins Dr. Estés, she seeks safety from the savage war that has devastated her village. What sustains her is the greatest of all gifts: a story. One healing tale leads to another, creating stories that each speak eloquently to the question, "What is enough?"
An expanded edition of the classic on creativity by Dr. Clarissa Pinkola Estés, this spoken-word masterpiece guides you through the dark labyrinths of the psyche in search of la chispa—the ember that is the elemental source of all creative work.
Dr. Estés teaches about the hidden aspects of creativity, including the negative complexes that prey upon creative energy. The Creative Fire includes many special insights for people who create for a living: artists, writers, teachers, and others who must depend on their creative instincts every day.
Dr. Clarissa Pinkola Estés says that the most endangered species on earth is the human soul. “What if our world is starving for soulful gifts only you carry? What are you waiting for? Lost, pushed back, can’t find the door, can’t see in the dark? ‘Mother Night’ knows the way.”
On Mother Night, Dr. Estés teaches us to retrieve our beautiful gifts abandoned in the unconscious through neglect, ignorance, and fear. Gather with her at the fireside for nearly 10 hours of original teaching stories, poetry, commentary, and her special prayers of blessing over your creative soul.
Every night of our lives, we experience between five and seven dreams, each reflecting our most intimate passions and conflicts. Dr. Clarissa Pinkola Estés compares each one to a riddle. Once solved, it can provide a surprising answer to an unresolved question buried within the psyche.
On In the House of the Riddle Mother, Estés surveys the most common archetypal patterns women experience while dreaming. Based on 20 years of work, this audio seminar is a dense, poetic storehouse of information about the dream life of women. Information is divided into 17 instructive sections, each devoted to analyzing distinct dream motifs.
As a child growing up in a family of cantadoras (keepers of the old stories), Clarissa Pinkola Estés learned firsthand how a story told at bedtime can soothe away the troubles of the day and prepare the way for another night's dreams to follow. Now a beloved cantadora herself, Estés shares this treasured family tradition with you on Bedtime Stories, her own special collection of tales to relax and ease you to sleep.
Join this world-renowned Jungian analyst and bestselling author as she explores how to use stories as healing companions that open an aperture into the divine world of our dreams, as well as the meaning of archetypal figures like Mother Night and the Sandman, and themes such as renewal, enchantment and transformation. Includes original tellings by Dr. Estés of her bedside favorites, including "Sleeping Beauty," "The Mouse and the Lion," and more.
From five to seven times each night, we dream and glimpse into a reality not normally available to us. Now Jungian psychoanalyst and author Clarissa Pinkola Estés explores the symbols, themes, and insights of these letters from our unconscious, with the beginning student in mind.
From common dreams such as flying, falling, or being chased, to the seven types of unusual dreams, The Beginner's Guide to Dream Interpretation demystifies popular misconceptions and offers concrete techniques for recalling and uncovering the hidden meanings of your dreams for inspiration and guidance.

Entering the terrain of wisdom occurs at any age.

Join her with The Joyous Body for the third volume of her masterwork on the Wise Woman archetype.

The Ultimate Blooming Takes Time
Although we are each created with countless gifts to share in this lifetime, no one is born in full development, begins Dr. Estés. The Late Bloomer—the one at the verge of tipping forward into her creative powers—speaks to all of us who sense within "great talent untapped … touchingly wondrous yet wounded or held back by fate in some way."

“Did I mention, dear brave souls,” reminds Dr. Estés, “that you came with all the seedlings needed to do your work, to take your venerable places in life? Now is the just-right time, like Sleeping Beauty, to break the enchantment, to truly awaken and awaken others, as either a rookie Dangerous Old Woman, or a mid-career Dangerous Old Woman, or as Crone with Crown complete!”
Join in the unfolding of the great gifts and vast new life you were meant to share, with How to Be an Elder.
(This is a summit online-course with a variety of teachers, including Clarissa Pinkola Estes teaching on the Blue Beard story.)
Whether it is a friend, a manager at work, someone in your family, an ex-lover, a politician, or perhaps even when it comes to considering yourself, we all have the experience of wondering, “Is that person a narcissist?”
However, do we really understand narcissism, its roots, its different forms and expressions, how it impacts us, and (most importantly) if and how it can be healed?
We believe that furthering the understanding of narcissism is one of the greatest psychological imperatives of our time and a necessary step if we are to heal the divisiveness of our time.
So what is narcissism, really? Does it exist on a spectrum? Is it a disease? Is there a cure? What do you do when you think there's a narcissist in your life? What is the relationship of narcissism to the spiritual journey? How do you know if you're a narcissist yourself?
This summit was created to help shed light on these very important questions and to clarify steps we can take to bring more compassion, skill, and wisdom into the conversation.
