Details

“Have You Forgotten? I Am Your Mother. You Are Under My Protection.”

“There is a promise Holy Mother makes to us,” proclaims Dr. Clarissa Pinkola Estés, “that any soul needing comfort, vision, guidance, or strength can cry out to her, flee to her protection, and Blessed Mother will immediately arrive with veils flying. She will place us under her mantle for refuge, and give us the warmth of her most compassionate touch, and strong guidance about how to go by the soul’s lights.” Untie the Strong Woman is Dr. Estés invitation to come together under the shelter of The Mother—whether she appears to us as the Madonna, Our Lady of Guadalupe, or any one of her countless incarnations. In this unforgettable collection of stories, prayers, and blessings, Dr. Estés shares:

  • “The Drunkard and the Lady”—a story of unexpected miracles that arise from the mud and soil
  • “Guadalupe is a Girl Gang Leader in Heaven”—a poem of resistance and hope
  • “No One Too Bad, Too Mean, or Too Hopeless”—the fierce Mother that never gives up on us
  • “The Shirt of Arrows”—a love that is invincible no matter how many times we are wounded
  • “The Black Madonna”—she who stands at the juncture between two worlds and protects us as we enter the dark places

Why does the face of Our Lady appear in the most humble and unexpected places? Why does she burst forth into every culture no matter how hard authority tries to suppress her? It is because no bonds can restrain the power of her love, nor prevent her from returning to those who need her most. With Untie the Strong Woman, Dr. Estés invites you to encounter the force of Immaculate Love—“So that your memory of Her is renewed, or that the knowledge of her miraculous, fierce, enduring ways is drawn into your heart for the very first time.”

I don't think it is possible for Clarissa Pinkola Estes, PhD, to ever disappoint! Her incomparable ability to awake us to Mother's unconditional Love and Presence in "Untie the Strong Woman" feeds body, mind and soul. (Posted on January 23, 2014)

Clarissa Pinkola Estes is amazing. She has such a fund of experience, of stories, such an understanding of the sacred feminine ("the strong woman"). As always, I could not put the book down - yummy, challenging, nourishing, strengthening, funny, totally alive. Much joyous wisdom. (Posted on January 6, 2014)

Review for Untie the Strong Woman Review by Elise S

Rating

Dr. Estes won my heart with her first book, Women Who Run With the Wolves, so I was excited to finally read this new book. And I rate it very highly!
She takes greater risks revealing more of her very personal stories that shaped her soul life's calling and its connection to others. Prayer is the central focus, prayer that speaks to Mary, the universal mother of all of us. Real practice of praying brings real results and she addresses the many people and their difficult spiritual struggles that need our prayers and blessings. She shares her keen sense of staying attentive to ways we can all co-create a more compassionate world. (Posted on June 29, 2013)
