DESCRIPTION

As a child growing up in a family of cantadoras (keepers of the old stories), Clarissa Pinkola Estés learned firsthand how a story told at bedtime can soothe away the troubles of the day and prepare the way for another night's dreams to follow. Now a beloved cantadora herself, Estés shares this treasured family tradition with you on Bedtime Stories, her own special collection of tales to relax and ease you to sleep.

Join this world-renowned Jungian analyst and bestselling author as she explores how to use stories as healing companions that open an aperture into the divine world of our dreams, as well as the meaning of archetypal figures like Mother Night and the Sandman, and themes such as renewal, enchantment and transformation. Includes original tellings by Dr. Estés of her bedside favorites, including "Sleeping Beauty," "The Mouse and the Lion," and more.

Magical, soothing storytelling with subtle cello accompaniment

This is my first introduction to the work of Clarissa Pinkola Estes and - what can I say? - I am in awe of her now. What a wonderful, authentic, expressive voice. So soothing to me as I was about to drift off to sleep. Except I didn't sleep on the first listening! I was so enthralled my the magical aura she created that I listened to the very end.

By the way, I made the mistake of buying this recording through Audible/Amazon -- and right at the end as Dr. Estes's lovely voice left me all warm and fuzzy and drifting off to sleep, a canned corporate man's voice broke in and loudly announced, "Audible hopes you have enjoyed this program." Really quite jarring and rude. Yes, and the moral of this story: I suggest you buy directly from Sounds True without the additional expense and insensitive corporate packaging of Audible.

Thank you, Dr. Estes!

Review for Bedtime Stories

I have been an erratic kind of insomniac for many years--erratic in that I will sleep well for a few days and then for a few can't sleep at all, or wake up at 3 for weeks on end and so on..

I've been trying to hear this mp3 for the past three days--with a under pillow speaker--and fall asleep within a few minutes---it's quite funny really--because Dr Estes starts preparing you to listen to the story and I sort of drop off at virtually the same point every night..and do wake up later..but the funny part is I am not getting to hear the stories at all ..

Review for Bedtime Stories

I felt like a big kid listening to these tales, but I never got to the end, as Clarissa worked her magic and cast her spell, before I knew it, I was asleep.
