Clarissa Pinkola Estes is a master storyteller. She is amazingly insightful and has a vast knowledge of different versions of fairy tales from all over the world. She understands that these stories play a part in each of our psyches. Her wonderful gifts include the ability to explain these tales so that the listener can easily understand. Her love of life and people is so evident as she desires to move us toward healing and wholeness. I have purchased several of her CD sets and have never been disappointed.

thank you sounds true and cpe - this may be my favorite of the series; unfortunately the only one I didn't get to experience live. in conjunction with years of immersion in wwrwtw, these sessions by the fireside in dr. e's danger undid and re-arranged the unfortunate lessons of my past and offered practical, down and dirty insight for immediate use. best therapy ever!! much love to you all, with gratitude.

This is a wonderful anthology of CP Estes stories and insights - so meaningful to me at this stage in MY life, and very entertaining as well. I admire her gift of storytelling, and teaching by storytelling, so much. She's wonderful, a true loving and compassionate, and SO articulate and poetic, teacher
