Listening to this makes my life feel so good inside of me.

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!

As always, CPE is evocative and insightful about soul issues. She is a most inspiring mentor. I love everything she says or writes.

I love this. Haven't listened to it all yet - it's A LOT of material. it's great listening at the gym, instead of music. CPE is truly like having an older female relative who speaks the truth about living in this world. Her perspective affirms many of my deepest perceptions, and I feel validated, uplifted and re-energized every time I listen.

Where 'The Artist's Way' exorcises the emotions of the re-emerging creatrix's soul, 'Mother Night' soothes the soul to process hidden shadow emotions. Pinkola-Estes' voice alone is wonderfully warm and nurturing. While her voice has always come through in her literary work, hearing her speak her truth is perfect synergy for the message. Quite conversationally delivered, this series is ideal for the soul-seeker who is fairly comfortable traveling between the states of metaphor and individual. I can see that someone who is not versed in archetypal representations or the rich, earthy journey of the soul would be confused in Pinkola-Estes' manner of storytelling to reveal personal truth. Hers is a very old tradition of layered storytelling, speaking directly to the symbols the soul and cells remember, which the modern mind geared toward quick, bulleted points for self-help may find cumbersome. This series is very important in the trek back to wholeness and the celebration of the unique individual.

I was disappointed; too rambling.
