Description

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.

Drawing from real-world examples such as the tragic death of Janis Joplin, Dr. Estés analyzes the deeply seated needs that lead to addiction. 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.

The Red Shoes is a treasury of ideas and counsel, threaded with magical storytelling, about the complete life each one of us deserves to lead.

Additional contents: The Internal Predator; how instincts are injured; learning to say no; the exile; vulnerability and seduction; feral women; and more.

Gets to the core of addiction. I have never had such a helpful perspective on my lifelong struggle with obesity. This has given me more understanding than 34 years of traditional therapy, diets, and medical interventions. Thank you Clarissa.

Thank-you once again for your amazing story telling I could listen all day. A true Seanchai!
The word seanchaí, which was spelled seanchaidhe (plural seanchaidhthe) before the Irish-language spelling reform of 1948, means a bearer of "old lore" (seanchas). In the ancient Celtic culture, the history and laws of the people were not written down but memorized in long lyric poems which were recited by bards (filí), in a tradition echoed by the seanchaithe.

Your feedback review is quite tardy, over 30 days.. If I ordered a lot, it could have been forgotten.
