From Dr. Clarissa Pinkola Estés, Part Three of Her Masterwork on The Dangerous Old Woman

“It is the nature of the saplings to quake in the winds; hesitant, learning to hold their own places. But, the older trees, with their years of testing and being tested, they are the ones who, whether in the long stern winds or misty gales, sway the most. Less a bouquet of tentative trembling first-time buds, now much more the leaf-perfumed hips of a hundred wide women dancing—these old ones, regardless of form, sway, by heart, to the music that thunders through them.”—Clarissa Pinkola Estés, PhD

The Body, Your Valiant Consort

“Each one of us is a triumvirate being—at once the union of body, soul, and all that lies within.” For any who experience disharmony amongst these three vital aspects, Dr. Clarissa Pinkola Estés reveals a pathway back to wholeness. Join her with The Joyous Body for the third volume of her masterwork on the Wise Woman archetype. This empowering six-session program shares original and old family stories, poems, and psychological commentary on the challenges, remedies, and ancient knowings of the holy female body, “that which is not a dumb servant but a divine fellow traveler and consort.”

Renew Your Relationship with The Sacred-Body Consort

“Remember that the loyal body is the first to signal us that something is needed. It is our first responder,” teaches Dr. Estés, “in order for us to not only survive but to thrive in the world.” Now, The Joyous Body is here to help you remember the old body wisdom, to heal and renew your relationship “with the sacred, magnificent being with whom you came to this earth.”

Review for The Joyous Body Review by Nancy B S

I purchase anything by CPE. I admit I like her earlier audios better; it seems like they transmit a higher energy. But I am getting "elder" & appreciate the wisdom offered for this stage of life. Also, I remember a CD my sister had about the tale of Snow White, but can't seem to find it again. Can you help ?

Review for The Joyous Body Review by Simone S

How does one write a review for Clarissa Pinkola Estes ? It feels impossible to me to comment on such a Gift. Shining light and love to any who wants to listen and with the fine balance of an experienced Mother - knowing when to push and when to hold. With all my heart. Thank you and blessings to you for generously offering the series of The Dangerous Old Woman. She keeps me going.

Review for The Joyous Body Review by Darla P

I was able to be present "live" for Dr. E's first two fireside teachings of The Dangerous Old Woman, but I have to say that this one is my favorite. Maybe it's the timing but my entire being vibrates in harmony with this series as we embody moments together that are beyond time. Either way, this series is a precious treasure. Thank you, ST and Tami.

Review for The Joyous Body Review by Norma N

I've enjoyed listening to these CDs so far. It's been a busy time so that I haven't listened as much as I would like.

Review for The Joyous Body Review by Chalice B

Dr. Estes reminds us of the gift of our body, and encourages a loving and living relationship of total acceptance of all we have been given in this embodiment. A truly important piece of wisdom!

Review for The Joyous Body Review by deborah h

This is the best of her recorded seminars to date and highly recommend it to all who face or will hopefully face aging and body issues. I own many of her recordings. Good soothing but very stimulating enough to listen to while driving. Get it. NOW
