DESCRIPTION


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.”

The Body Companion And How To Treat It Kindly

‘The Joyous Body’ is the third volume of Dr. Estés’ five-volume audio masterpiece known as ‘The Dangerous Old Woman.’ To the uninitiated it is difficult to describe the wisdom, insight, inspiration and stories in each volume of this series.

With the myriad skills of a therapist with decades of experience, and a depth psychologist and Jungian analyst at the top of her game, Dr. Estés deftly blends well-known stories, personal family legends and insight into a series of audio recordings that engage and inspire the listener.

As is usually the case with great work, teaching happens at many levels. Although Dr. Estés is a certified Jungian analyst, that label is too limiting. While Carl Jung and Joseph Campbell raised awareness of Archetypes, many cultural stories, legends, myths and wisdom have passed on from our ancestors for millennia. Often practitioners of depth psychology become Jungian analysts as a result of their education and studies. Dr. Estés seems to have been born to become one of our generations greatest oral and written story tellers, commune with Archetypes, Saints and Angels, as well as maintain a relentless desire to help, inspire and advocate for others.

One of the greatest gift of this series is its ability to guide the listener to discover who they really are, nurture and empower their “Original Voice,” and cast off social, cultural and personal bindings that separate the listener from his or her destiny and birthright.

Volume Three is largely devoted to…

Not My Cup of Tea

I bought this and another and hoped for some insight but did not enjoy it. It did not inspire or give any new insights.

Review for The Joyous Body

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

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

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.
