Deeply powerful story as medicine--this work is using for understanding of healing the attachment issues that bind humans (the suffering of the abandoned, neglected or abused inner child fragments, within AKA 'The Stone Child'). The audio is a masterful depth psychology transformation experience delivered as story and lecture, by Jungian psychoanalyst and cantadora (storyteller) Dr. Clarissa Pinkola Estés, and bears listening to again and again.

I found Clarissa to be an excellent story-teller, who uses her Jungian insights to bring to ordinary audiences some ancient archetypal truths about central issues of daily living, in this case the 'unmothered child.' I shall continue to acquire her products.

Wonderful...I appreciated the balance between myth/story and insight/meaning making. I will be suggesting this to (psychotherapy) clients who will resonate with this as deeply as I have. Highly recommended for the un-mothered.

Wonderful tape. Inspiring.

Must listen to recording explains abandonment issues though stories and cultures. Gave me a keen insight into childhood I never heard or have seen addressed in over 50 years of reading or hearing processionals discuss childhood. It was kind of shock and awe for me about understanding earlier childhood experiences.

Pinkola Estes voice is clear and very soothing. Her delivery is flawless.

This really helped me recognize my weaknesses, and value my strengths, as an unmothered child. I've owned it for 20 years, and find if I don't "refresh" with a new listen periodically, I get off-track. I recommend this work to ALL who have lost their moms to death, abandonment, and mental illness. ON ever re-listen, I discover something new and helpful.

Lovely stories, well presented by the author. I wished there was more actionable information for how to go about warming the stone child within, but alas! Loved the author's voice & the way she told the tales.
