Come to the stage between two worlds—come to the Theatre of the Imagination. On this six-part live performance series, bestselling author and beloved cantadora (keeper of the old stories) Clarissa Pinkola Estés shares the work of her lifetime: myths, tales, and poetry with the power to nourish and heal.

Contained within Theatre of the Imagination are the great universal themes—tales of loss and resurrection; of love and sacrifice; of the courage to survive—yet it is as if Dr. Estés is speaking only to you. With words that weave in and out of the interior and exterior worlds, she creates an amazing fabric of the purest wisdom—fought for, won, and preserved to teach all generations—that which is most worth knowing.

You will hear more than 40 original poems, archetypal insights, and dozens of strengthening stories from Dr. Estés's own family's oral traditions. Dr. Estés teaches that each story holds a key to a deeper self-knowing: "Stories cut fine wide doors in previous blank walls, openings that lead to the dreamland, that lead to love and learning, that lead us back to our own real lives."

Presented in her one-of-a-kind lyrical style, Theatre of the Imagination seats you in the front row at these performances of a lifetime. More than seven hours of signature stories plus earthy and wise advice, archetypal insights, poetry, and much more.

Six Healing Stories Include:

  • La Calavera (Godmother Death)
  • The Lost Mother Moon
  • Vasalisa and the Baba Yaga
  • Bluebeard and the Forbidden Key
  • The Ugly Duckling
  • The Joyous Body

This is my first time hearing Clarissa Pinkola Estés. I must say that her mastery of the subject is both impressive and useful. More importantly, she is clearly a master storyteller with a real sensitivity for the more difficult issues she is introducing to the listener – love, death and revitalization. I thoroughly enjoyed the way she incorporated the colorful elements of her own life – poetry and memoir – as part of this dramatic presentation.
