Description

Rescue the Gifted Soul!

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.

El Mundo Doble—the Double Worldview

Mother Night is “the medial force,” seeing through the eyes of soul and through the eyes of ego. Dr. Estés describes this dual way of seeing, being, and acting, as the most direct way to reclaim the gifts and “healing apothecary” set into each soul at birth. Here, she unleashes the many archetypal images of Mother Night found in stories, myths, and imagination, showing us the way through.

How to Bring Diamonds from the Darkness

“We are weakly linked or severed from the wild and wise self,” teaches Dr. Estés. “Yet, deep creative life is informed by the realm of mystery, dreams, sudden knowings; the shadow.” Mother Night is our wild companion as we kneel to dig down to mine the raw gems of spirit, soul, and creative life, “bringing diamonds from the darkness” again, or for the very first time.

The last I read Clarissa was the Women who run...and now I am falling in love with her. Bought Mother Night weeks ago but listening to it slowly, in small portions so as to make it last. Just listening to her feels like I am getting gently healed.

I thoroughly enjoy all of Estes work. Her style is engaging as well as intellectually profound. She moves easily between folktale, myth, depth psychology and genuine humanity. She speaks on all levels with a profound insight and gentle caring. She is as respectful of simplicity as the challenging. I found Mother Night to be especially refreshing. Her storytelling and elaboration of concepts is stunning. If you are familiar with her work and enjoy The Dangerous Old Woman offerings, this will also be a treat. This is a treasure for the spirit's nurturance. Enjoy!
