Seeing in the Dark
Myths and Stories to Reclaim the Buried, Knowing Woman

Dr. Estés offers stories and insights to tap the creative, healing power in the shadow.

Starting at: $10.48

Details

Buried into all of us is what Dr. Clarissa Pinkola Estés refers to as “the one who knows”—the instinctive, intuitive nature. This, she teaches, is the source of creativity and understanding that lies out of sight in darkness, often called the unconscious.

On Seeing in the Dark, we join the esteemed Jungian psychoanalyst and bestselling author to learn how to perceive through the eyes of the soul as well as through the eyes of the ego. This dual way of seeing, being, and acting, Dr. Estés explains, is the most direct way to reclaim the gifts of the “healing apothecary” set into each soul at birth.

On two CDs of empowering insights, special blessing prayers, and original stories—told here for the first time—Dr. Estés inspires us to find our one-of-a-kind voice and trust in our ability to “see beyond the obvious, to see beyond the cultural,” as she introduces:

  • “The Fire Owl””—an all-new tale about reclaiming the fire of enthusiasm when others would try to steal it away
  • “The Corpse Bride””—an all-new story about the hope which cannot die and the power of redemption
  • “The Erl König,” “The Rebbe in Prison,” “The Man Who Sought Treasure Afar,” and more

“We are weakly linked or else severed from the wild and wise self,” says Dr. Estés. “Yet, deep creative life is informed by the realm of mystery, dreams, sudden knowings; the shadow.” Seeing in the Dark is an inspiring call to “mine the raw gems of spirit, soul, and creative life”—again, or for the very first time.

Stories, myths and humor are the foundation for Seeing in the Dark. Dr Estes leads us to an understanding of the importance of our intuition, which exists in us all to help us connect to our true selves and to all of life. Women especially will find this CD magical. Relax, nurture your soul and remember who you really are. (Posted on July 4, 2013)

I love the way CPE shares her knowledge through stories. If you liked Women Who Run with the Wolves, you will like this as well. She also has a very engaging voice so is easy to listen to, which I do not find to be the case with all audio books. (Posted on July 1, 2013)

Review for Seeing in the Dark Review by K. Voegeli

Years ago I read Clarissa Pinkola Estes' work WOMEN WHO RUN WITH THE WOLVES, so I am familiar with her work. She offers very insightful observations of timeless stories and their meaning for us in our modern world. She is very adept at adapting the morals and imagery of these tales so that they make sense to us now in a way that allows us to apply their lessons to everyday life. (Posted on June 28, 2013)
