Description

What in life is unconquerable? What survives no matter what? On The Faithful Gardener, Dr. Clarissa Pinkola Estés mines the rich storytelling tradition of her own family to unearth a series of lyrical stories that illustrate how faith is the one immortal force in our lives.

What begins as a simple tale from the lips of a child becomes the greater saga of Uncle Zovár, a quiet refugee from the Nazi slave camps, and his refusal to let bitterness darken his devotion to the earth. The final story, told in the form of a vivid old country tale about that which can never die, holds an unforgettable lesson about sacrifice and spiritual regeneration.

Raised by a family of refugee immigrants who revered stories as healing instruments, Dr. Estés relates these ageless tales that were first told to nourish, repair, and strengthen—whatever is most needed and wanted. The Faithful Gardener captures the spirit of a long-ago time, while deeply expressing our common desire to know that grappling with sudden and unexpected twists of fate and challenging transitions—however painful—is never in vain.

I love Clarissa Pinkola Estes and purchased many on cassettes. This is a great way to replace much of the work enjoyed for years. Thank you

Helps me keep the spirit of my son and others who've passed alive. Outstanding and must listen for anyone struggling when a loved one passes on.

I thought it was interesting because it contains the personal story of Estes's adopted uncle and how he survived the horros of war and the reintegration into family and society.

Dr. Estes is an incredible storyteller. With her wisdom and choice of words and tone, she is able to reach us beyond our barriers to touch our soul. Very beautiful and applicable to me.

Everyone of her stories is wonderful.
This one is a story that everyone
should hear or read. I never tire
of hearing it especially around Christmas.

This is touching, inspiring and a wonderful real life example of how to deal with devastating blows. Dr Estes is always good but this is special even for her.

I bought a tape of The Faithful Gardener years ago. I have worn it out to the place I can hardly hear it anymore. It is wonderful. Magical. Real.
