Description

Dr. Estés asks, “Did you know, you were born as the first, and the last and the best and the only one of your kind, and that eccentricity is the first sign of giftedness? These are two of the crone truths I have to offer you.”

If you have any doubt, come join us at the fireside of the Dangerous Old Woman for the soul-healing wisdom that will ignite your creativity and support your highest calling in life—to become a dangerous woman of wisdom yourself.

Three decades in the writing, The Dangerous Old Woman presents part one of Dr. Clarissa Pinkola Estés' masterwork. In six “inspire 'til you're on fire” sessions, Dr. Estés animates the archetypal patterns of the Wise Woman through her original stories, poetry, and blessings.

Join her in this landmark recording to meet the Dangerous Old Woman from across world history and cultures, including La Anciana, the Ancient One; the Midwife Exemplar; La Tejadora, the Weavers of Fate; the Juggler Women; and many more.

Old While Young, and Young While Old

We are each born with two forces that give us every lens we need to see who we really are: the wild and ever-young force of imagination that contains intuition and instinct, and the wise elder force of knowledge that holds boundaries and carries the heart of the visionary.

Through captivating stories including “Snow White,” “Las Tres Osas,” and “The Ruby Red Fox,” Dr. Estés illustrates why this twofold way of being “old while young, and young while old” is the secret to holding and replenishing the center, thus living wildly and wisely ensouled amidst life's travails and triumphs.

Your Legacy: Wild and Wise, Both

“If you are not free to be who you are, you are not free,” says Dr. Estés. The freedom to be different means one can continue to deepen the work of bringing your one-of-a-kind legacy into the world … by following the trail to that freedom blazed by the Dangerous Old Woman, she who stops at nothing to nourish, protect, and guide us in the offering of all our creative gifts.

Clarissa Pinkola Estes is such a great story-teller, with such a wonderful voice, that I could listen to her read her grocery list. Lucky for us, this audio book is much more that that, with myths about fierce, strong women elders and their place in society. A great listen for anyone, but especially for women entering their 'crone years' and struggling to find their path and purpose.

It's more, way more then I expected and yet exactly what I needed. The sale made a no-excuse. back in the mid 90ies I had bought "the theater of your imagination" and some other titles and have been working with it ever since.

I am absolutely thrilled with this CD collection. Dr. Estes is brilliant and her stories and commentary are full of insight and compassion. I love her stories about her family and where she grew up. I have listened to them 3 times now and every time I hear something new that I did not catch the first time. I recommend these to everyone.
