Dr. Clarissa Pinkola Estés Presents Part Two of Her Masterwork on the Dangerous Old Woman

“Dear brave souls, I warmly invite you to come be at the fireside with me and the Dangerous Old Woman and the Power of the Crone. Who is the crone? She is the most dangerous, the most radical, the most revolutionary woman in existence. Whether in fairy tales or in consensual reality, the old one goes where she wants to and she acts as she wishes; she lives as she chooses. And this is all as it should be. And no one can stop her. Nor ought they try.”—Clarissa Pinkola Estés, PhD

When Does Wisdom Come?

Entering the terrain of wisdom occurs at any age. We sometimes step, sometimes stumble, and other times are pulled into the territory of the Crone when the need for a deeper, larger understanding of our most meaningful paths in life can no longer be denied, and when the gifts that are hidden in our challenges must be brought forth.

On The Power of the Crone, Dr. Estés presents volume two of the Dangerous Old Woman, with six sessions of original stories, psychological commentary, and blessings. Join her to meet Las Cacareas (The Old Cacklers), La Misteria (The Seer), La Arbolaria (The Spellbreaker), and the wisdom-wielding Crone in many more of her guises.

Fulfilling the Callings of Soul

Says Dr. Estés: “If you weep, the Crone will move closer to you. Laugh, and she wants to hear the joke. Dance, and she wants to dance with you and in you. She has help for the hurt and for the one poisoned by bitterness. She can pull the thorn from the breast, and tattoo your scars with flowering boughs.” This is the power of the Crone, ready to assist each of us to “fulfill the callings of the souls on this earth—with verve, with style, with critical insights, with wisdom, and with love.”

  • “The Littlest Giantess”
  • “The Orcharder Who Tried to Deform the Trees”

Review for The Power of the Crone Review by candi B

Clarissa is my favorite wise women. I feel fortunate that she has been sharing her stories and wisdom for so many years of my life. I am a Crowned One, at age 70 and living my life more fully, I am sure because of all the wonderful audio tapes of Clarissa's that I've listened to countless times.
With this series of CDs the first is somewhat difficult to hear, but the rest are fine.
Bless you Clarissa and thank you Sounds True for making it available within my budget.

Review for The Power of the Crone Review by Laura C

This is the second Clarissa Pinkola Estes audio program I have listened to, and I think i'm hooked. I feel like she is sitting right here at my kitchen table talking to me. Her approach (telling us how she heard the story and from whom), her gifts as a storyteller, and her inspiration-which includes powerful insights that I realize I knew all along but had forgotten- are real expressions of the living, creating power of the crone. Many thanks.
