Author Clarissa Pinkola Estes

Updated on January 14, 2015

Speaker, Story-Teller and Author Clarissa Pinkola Estes

I first heard Clarissa Pinkola Estes speak when I picked up a CD album from the library. Her story telling enchanted me! I have since listened to several other CD's by Clarissa Pinkola Estes.

Her way of extracting the essence of familiar stories and myths give women hope, permission, and encouragement for living the abundant life we so often find just out of reach.

I have read some of Clarissa Pinkola Estes work, but listening to her voice and her manner of story-telling is my favorite way to experience Clarissa Pinkola Estes. Whether you are a fan or have not met Clarissa Pinkola Estes, check out the books and CD's I have listed here. Let me know what you think!

Untie the Strong Woman by Clarissa Pinkola Estes - Blessed Mother's Immaculate Love for the Wild Soul

The first work by poet and psychoanalyst Clarissa Pinkola Ests (author of Women Who Run with Wolves) in a decade.

"this brilliant treatment is much larger than the sum of its parts."

Join the esteemed Jungian psychoanalyist and best-selling author Dr. Clarissa Pinkola Estes as she teaches in her own voice through the audio books listed on this page. It's helpful to read her books, but it's magic to listen to her tell her stories. I have listed to the same CD's over and over.

On remarkable life emerging from the midst of the wound "How the White-Throated Sparrow Came to the New World" The Dancing Grandmothers "As the wise woman gathers years, like an ancient tree, she grows even more arms, even more flowers and fruits," explains Dr. E.

The Joyous Body: Myths and Stories of the Wise Woman Archetype

"Dr. Clarissa Pinkola Estes invites listeners to The Joyous Body. Here, she shares original stories, poems, and psychological commentary about the challenges, remedies, and ancient knowings of the holy female body, 'that which is not a dumb servant but a divine fellow traveler and consort.' "

She's synthesized wisdom from all over the world into a sane, responsible and loving way to embrace self-care. Although the focus of the cds is the wise woman archetype, I think the messages here address a hunger felt by women of all ages.
