Description

Volume Four of the Dangerous Old Woman Series with Dr. Clarissa Pinkola Estés

"What makes talent bloom? Ask what makes a tree blossom. They are the same. It is not unfathomable. It only takes concentration. Concentration of energies is what makes a tree flower. Not bigger, not faster, not taking up more space. Rather, less space. Density. Pressure in hard places. Often, in the dark. Relentlessly. Freely. For as long as it takes. Hold faith, a gestation can go long and for good reason, and nothing much shows above ground. But then, one day…" —Clarissa Pinkola Estés, PhD

Are you waiting for New Life, for your talents to bloom? With The Late Bloomer, Dr. Clarissa Pinkola Estés presents volume four of her masterwork on the Wise Woman archetype, bringing you six sessions of original tales, stories from her ethnic families, poems, blessings, and psychological commentary exploring the cycles of "burgeoning, blooming New Life."

The Ultimate Blooming Takes Time
Although we are each created with countless gifts to share in this lifetime, no one is born in full development, begins Dr. Estés. The Late Bloomer—the one at the verge of tipping forward into her creative powers—speaks to all of us who sense within "great talent untapped … touchingly wondrous yet wounded or held back by fate in some way." Meet the wise old woman in the form of The Late Bloomer in her many guises, as she beckons us to ignite the creative fire of the interior life, to burst into bloom time and again.

Step Forward into Your True Shape
Dr. Estés asks, "What is your reason for being here on earth? What are the promises you made to Creator before you came? That is your original shape—the holy shape of how you are meant to go in life, regardless of all crosswinds." The old woman as the wise Late Bloomer calls us to "step forward into our true shapes, and to step onto the open road and blue sky… where we can be born into New Life again."

Superb as usual.. I adore Dr Estes and this series really gives you hope, especially if you are late blooming..she helps you feel that all your sitting around and moping in the dark for years hasn't just been a waste of a life but it has some purpose and how you can put it to good use..

Of course you will have to listen to a few times to really soak in it..

I'm really disappointed with this CD. I was going to ask for my money back and would love if a refund were still possible as it really did not meet my expectations. Having read and loved Pinkola Estes book, Women who Run with the Wolves, I'd been very much looking forward to hearing her speak on CD. The first CD alone spanning two hours could have been summed up in the phrase--it's never too late. Instead, the author rambled and waffled on and on and it appeared she was simply intent on filling time rather than providing substance to her topic. I would not recommend this CD to anybody having found it an outrageous waste of time and money. It appears there is no option here to give a no-star rating, so therefore I'm being forced to give it 1.

Clarissa is just so magical to listen to. This archetype is so misunderstood and she explains it wonderfully well and told through her unique way of sharing, a true inspirational storyteller. A very informative listen.

Estes, as always, is charming and relateable as are her stories and archetypal discussions. Such a wondrous scholar of storytelling in general, a great storyteller herself, and yet like sitting down with your sister to have a chat. Beautiful no matter when or how you are blooming!

I always enjoy listening to Clarissa Pinkola Estes, she is a wonderful storyteller. This particular program is filled with moving out of a stuck position even if it is late in life.

Clarissa has a wonderful voice that lovingly pulls you in to the story she might be telling, or the insights about the story theme that might apply to you. I feel stronger and more empowered after listening to this series. Hope she does more.
