Full Description

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.”

Stories, Poems, and Blessings Include:

  • “The Littlest Giantess”
  • “The Orcharder Who Tried to Deform the Trees”
  • “Backwoods Woman … When the Old Woman Comes to Shake You Awake”
  • “Don’t Make Creator Too Small”

    The Power of Crone

    Clarissa's lyrical, expressive voice takes one into worlds here and elsewhere that open and land one's knowing. A beautiful journey and valuable reminders of what it is to be here and be an elder.

    Wisdom in every story

    I love her work. Hearing her talk through it is more powerful than reading it and her voice is designed for telling stories. I have listened to her work through each stage of my life, and found insights each time.

    An Opportunity To Respect And Learn From The Wise Old Woman (Crone)

    ‘The Power of the Crone’ is the second 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.
