Outstanding! I am savoring ever word from Estes, for her beautiful storytelling and her powerful wisdom.

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.

I love the seamless way Clarissa Pinkola Estes weaves the context for her stories, her amazing storytelling ability (which makes me feel like I am right there in the story as it is happening), and her many insightful and wise reflections.

As with The Power of the Crone the power of these recordings was so strong that I could only listen them one at a time letting each one settle imparting a power of it`s own before going on to the next

An excellent way to connect with ancient wisdom and to understand what it feels like and what it looks like. This CD is full of wisdom that our modern society would prefer you didn't have.

Very nice set of talks by Dr. Estes. These work well in the car as the meditative sections, called blessings, are not sleep inducing and the instructions include keeping your eyes open if desired. I affirm staying alert to driving needs every time anyway. Models of healthy adult and very mature aged women are so welcome in my collection of media. I have volume two, The Power of the Crone, also. These comments apply to that set as well. If you have ever enjoyed Dr. Estes' other works you will really like these talks.

This subject is so important in my life and Dr. Pinkola Estes is a master at presenting it! I am finding my own experience to be validated and enhanced by her work! This CD is a vibrant guiding light for those of us who are becoming true elders!

Dr. Estes is just simply amazing. I am enjoying this work so much. I love listening to her stories and then when she pulls it all together for the aha! moment it reveals so much. I have several of her other works, The Red Shoes, etc., and what I am enjoying on this work is that she seems to be so relaxed. She laughs a lot and it's like having a face to face conversation. I can't recommend this highly enough.

This collection of stories and deep wisdom regarding the Crone and wild woman archetypes is absolutely mesmerizing. I was on an 8 hour car trip listening to these CD's and I didn't want to get to my destination before I was done listening! Estes voice is so soothing and rich and wise and her wisdom so full I highly recommend this to every woman. I am in my sixties so I am the dangerous old woman and I wholly relate!

I love this CD set and will, in time, buy the whole program. Dr Estes is a wonderful story teller and reminds women, through story, to follow their intuition rather than cave to society's expectations.

Love, Love, Love Dr Estes. A voice for deep healing in a crazy world. I loved this so much, I just ordered all the others in the series of Wise Woman. It is true there is much to be gained as we age. I am so glad to have found this woman's work almost 20 years ago to guide me!

I am becoming a Dangerous Old Woman. I treasure the HealthRHYTHMS (tm) women drummers that I teach in Southport, NC, who are Dangerous Old Women, mostly in their 70s & 80s. We are the first, the last, the best and the only ones of our kind! Dr. Clarissa Pinkola Estes myths and stories encourage us to open to our passions and be heard!!!!! Drum Roll for Dr. Estes!!!!!

After listening to Tami's interview/excert I ordered both volumes and have greatly enjoyed them. At 70 years it is inspiring to know that the "old woman" has purpose and joy is possible. I recommend this series to women of all ages.

This series is fantastic! Clarissa has a wonderful voice and the stories are appropriate to maturing women from all walks of life. I am excited, flourishing and having fun upon entering the "old woman" era of my life, rather than dreading it! The stories are valuable and validating and Clarissa is nothing short of genious with her incredible insight into the ways of The Dangerous Old Woman.

After losing my center and becoming more and more despondent, my sister sent this collection to me for my birthday. The Dangerous Old Woman has rekindled my soul, re-lit the passion of self discovery and pointed me in the direction of becoming, again, as I was when I was born.
Thank you Clarissa Pinkola Estes for this most inspiring work. I am awake.

It's great! I would love for the programs to be presented in more, shorter tracks, which would make it easier to navigate. The long story about the story in the first volume is not so necessary, but the material itself is fabulous, which is what matters most. Thank you for your fine work.

This is the first time I have had the pleasure to buy anything from Clarissa Pinkola Estes. I bought this because I was looking for something for my 8 year old girl to listen to in the evenings before going to bed. I have been in search for something spiritual but when I came across this MP3 I thought it could be fun and educational for my daughter to hear some old folk stories told in more of an original version. We love the stories we have had time to listen to so far... Clarissa is a very skilled story teller and she has such a fantastic insight into the mystic. I can warmly recommend this for all ages to listen to. It will creat a great platform for deeper converstaions inbetween all ages and understandings.

I'm really enjoying the stories. I listen to a lot of spiritually intense CD's -it's nice to just kind of hang with a woman who tells stories and gives very wise insights at the end
right now she's talking about the snow white legend -- very good!

Unfortunately I did not enjoy this program as I have enjoyed others where I have gained some insight through their teachings. This was more like a rambling one person conversation.

Did not appreciate the excessive amount of emotive story telling accompanied by very little explanation/analysis. I was about ready to toss, but will donate to the local library instead.
