Gets to the core of addiction. I have never had such a helpful perspective on my lifelong struggle with obesity. This has given me more understanding than 34 years of traditional therapy, diets, and medical interventions. Thank you Clarissa.

Thank-you once again for your amazing story telling I could listen all day. A true Seanchai!
The word seanchaí, which was spelled seanchaidhe (plural seanchaidhthe) before the Irish-language spelling reform of 1948, means a bearer of "old lore" (seanchas). In the ancient Celtic culture, the history and laws of the people were not written down but memorized in long lyric poems which were recited by bards (filí), in a tradition echoed by the seanchaithe.

The product and download worked perfectly!! Thank you.

Your feedback review is quite tardy, over 30 days.. If I ordered a lot, it could have been forgotten.

I really enjoyed my downloads and have taken to listening to them last thing at night. Clarissa Pinkola Estes is my favorite story teller and she reaches a place inside me that is old, yet very free and spontaneous. I love her approach, her storytelling and the way she brings into the current world the old stories and legends. The Red Shoe is outstanding and really helps conceptualize addiction.

I absolutely love The Red Shoes and didn't want it to end. Consequently, I came home and ordered The Dangerous Old Women. I also have Mother Night to listen to that I ordered a few weeks ago. Can't get enough of this enthralling Jungian content and the way Dr. Estes delivers her stories. Thank you!

I was exceptionally pleased with the content of the audiobook "The Red Shoes" by Dr Clarissa Pinkola Estes. It was very helpful and supported some meaningful, personal, inner journeys for me. I have read a few of CPE's books now and love her artful, humaine and humorous explanations of some very complex jungian concepts. She draws on folk stories as particularly illuminating metaphorical demonstrations of the varied aspects of the Self and it's conflicts. Her books are just beautiful.

Her gentle voice and the love and light in it really soothed and supported me through some difficult but necessary territory. It's been a spring-board for further investigation into Jungian Psychoanalysis for me but I think this book could easily be taken as an isolated enjoyable experience. I would, however, highly recommend other books by Dr Estes. I particularly liked "The Stone Child", "Women Who Run With The Wolves" and the lecture series "Theatre of The Imagination".

Thank-you sounds true for your excellent service and for providing MP3s which can be transferred straight to personal MP3 players that are not big brand makes.

Dr Estes is amazing. Not only is she a delight to listen to, but the content is so enlightening! In the past I have found myths hard to read, but when they are spoken (I guess its their true form) they really speak to my psyche. Treat yourself, you deserve it.

Beautiful re-telling of this old story, though feel she made an error in analysis -- it's not the shoemaker who is the destroyer in the psyche, but the bearded soldie. Important issues well-dealt with.

Not sure on this one, too many personal assumptions as fact.
