Women Who Run With the Wolves

Women Who Run With the Wolves
A book that we can recommend every woman that wants or needs to explore her wildest essence, a book which reveals the instinctual nature of woman. Within her lives a powerful force, filled with good instincts, passionate creativity, and ageless knowing.

This book is called: Women Who Run With the Wolves
Author: Clarissa Pinkola Estes

Clarissa Pinkola Estés, PhD, is an internationally recognized scholar, award-winning poet, diplomate senior Jungian psychoanalyst, and Cantadora (keeper of the old stories in the Latina tradition). In addition to her international bestseller Women Who Run With the Wolves, Dr. Estés is a managing editor and columnist writing on politics, spirituality, and culture at a newsblog.

Within every woman there lives a powerful force, filled with good instincts, passionate creativity, and ageless knowing. She is the Wild Woman, who represents the instinctual nature of women. But she is an endangered species. In Women Who Run With the Wolves, Dr. Estés unfolds rich intercultural myths, fairy tales, and stories, many from her own family, in order to help women reconnect with the fierce, healthy, visionary attributes of this instinctual nature. Through the stories and commentaries in this remarkable book, we retrieve, examine, love, and understand the Wild Woman and hold her against our deep psyches as one who is both Magic and Medicine. Dr. Estés has created a new lexicon for describing the female psyche. Fertile and life-giving, it is a psychology of women in the truest sense, a knowing of the soul.

Reviews:
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

"I am grateful to Women Who Run With the Wolves and to Dr. Clarissa Pinkola Estés. 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 book."
                                                                                           --Maya Angelou


"An inspiring book, the 'vitamins for the Soul' [for] women who are cut off from their intuitive nature.
                                                                            
--San Francisco Chronicle

"Stands out from the pack ... A joy and sparkle in [the] prose ... This book will become a Bible for women interested in doing deep work.... It is a road map of all the pitfalls, those familiar and those horrifically unexpected, that a woman encounters on the way back to her instinctual self. Wolves ... is a gift."
                                                                                         --Los Angeles Times

This book recently crossed my bath (path). Got so excited about what I was reading, I accidently dropped it in the bath, which has never happened to me before. When it dries out, I'm looking forward to continuing ;-) Thanks for letting me know about it.
