As an analyst working with the dying, Dr. Clarissa Pinkola Estés has developed seminal methods to help ease the fear that can accompany the dying process. On The Radiant Coat, this bestselling author shares myths and stories first told at the bedsides of the dying to comfort them and their loved ones. For other cultures, Dr. Estés teaches, death holds no terror. It is in fact characterized as an ally, a wise and caring figure, leading departed souls through the starry night into the next day. This application of storytelling as a precious medicine for the terminally ill has attracted worldwide attention to the work of Dr. Estés. Fusing stories with useful psychological analysis, she removes the cloak of fear that surrounds the dying process. The Radiant Coat is a uniquely helpful collection of teaching stories, offered to help all listeners who seek to understand death—not as the end of life—but as another beginning.

Additional contents: Death as a companion; consciously preparing for death; the four tasks in crossing between the worlds; dreams of the dying; medical intervention; the split archetype of the doctor as both life-bringer and escort through the doorway of death. Stories include: Godfather Death, The Water Glass, The Radiant Coat, and more.

I've never heard anything by Dr. E that I didn't just love. Insightful, warm, and awakening. Bravo!

Review for The Radiant Coat Review by Daisy Marshall

I haven't been able to listen but like all of my items (I mean all) that Clarissa has ever written and recorded, it is a part of my most precious treasures. I look forward to the time when I can sit and really listen to her words. D. Marshall

Review for The Radiant Coat Review by Joyce Ray

The Radiant Coat has such depth of meaning for me as I work with a client who is facing the possibility of death. Dr. Estes helped me to put my own sorrow aside so I could be a source of healing for this person. Thank you.

Review for The Radiant Coat Review by Patricia Adler

I didn't know this was about death. Now that I'm seventy-four, this CD has a lot of meaning and hope for me. Just lovely.

Review for The Radiant Coat Review by Janice Lawry

Anyone working with the dying or just interested in their own experience of the end of life should listen to these stories. Estes reminds us over and over that death is a part of the life cycle and not to be feared.

This CD I purchased as a gift to a friend of mine. I already had obtained the CD some time ago. The depth of the stories I know will gives us hours of really deep and meaningfull discussions. I am soo looking forward to it.

Review for The Radiant Coat Review by Carolyn Edwards

Comforting, moving tales; the only problem I have is the certainty with which presented. Given the subject matter, some reference to not-knowing seems important.

Review for The Radiant Coat Review by Jan Preston Dunn

I cannot even express how grateful I am for the soulful words and stories Clarissa has brought into my life with this and all of her CDs. I lost my dear boyfriend Ed 3 months ago to cancer and my heart still aches terribly, but I know that every night I have these stories to bring me comfort and wisdom.
Thank you so much Clarissa....
