Details

Healing for the “Unmothered Child”

The pain of abandonment, both real and metaphorical, can cast a shadow over our entire adult experience. Warming the Stone Child investigates the abandoned child archetype in world myths and cultures to find clues about the process of healing the unmothered child within us all. Along the way, this gifted storyteller and Jungian psychoanalyst instructs us about the psychology of abandonment in childhood, how it affects us in later life, and its curiously special gifts and powers. Join her as she illuminates:

  • The Inuit fable of the Stone Child
  • Symptoms of the adult “abandoned child”
  • The story of the Little Red Cap
  • The English tale of the Stolen Woman Moon
  • The four types of abandonment
  • Re-creating the inner mother, and much more.

Drawing from many world cultures, Dr. Estés has gathered a collection of deep myths, fables, and fairy tales with the adult listener in mind. Her storytelling creates a compelling picture of the orphan figure through the ages, while helping us understand the meaning of preadolescent abandonment in our own lives. Spiced with wonderful storytelling, Warming The Stone Child is a unique listening experience with a practical edge.

Inspirational rather than Practical Review by Lily

Rating

Good stories but I was waiting for some practical tips on creating an Inner Mother to fill the void of the unmothered
child but was disappointed to find none. Inspirational rather than practical (Posted on December 2, 2018)

"I had a BIG DREAM!!! Thank you Clarissa!" Review by Aga Pastuszek

Rating

Heeling. Inspiring. Coaching. Making you grow in many aspects of your Self and in every aspect of the growing world. Expanding your character, your being; and setting you free. Super important work, beyond most of the much longer in content, and at the same time, much more shallow works.

This book will move you to another level, both in understanding and in feeling; both towards yourself and towards people around you. It is leaded with love and consideration from Dr. CPE, including her genius, present almost in every sound. Her voice and intonation is amazingly adapted to the moment of time of the story told, which helps you to pass extremely heavy material, (which in fact this book is, considering the painful subject it is referring to). I would recommend this work to everyone, as it is growing in us our humanity like basically every work of Dr. CPE, but for those who are un-Mather-ed, I would say it could be a major breakthrough in their therapy, in their understanding of life and themselves.

Lot's of love and thanks to Dr. Clarissa! You are a Stars Messenger, you carry the Light!!!

Validates my experience Review by Donna

Rating

Listening to this CD has helped me understand my own experience and enriched my relationship with my daughter and other family members. I love the way the story of the stone child can be told with different endings or to highlight different aspects of the psyche. This also helps illuminate story-telling in general as a practice and a joy. (Posted on October 25, 2014)

Review for Warming the Stone Child Review by H. Raven Rose

Rating

Deeply powerful story as medicine--this work is using for understanding of healing the attachment issues that bind humans (the suffering of the abandoned, neglected or abused inner child fragments, within AKA 'The Stone Child'). The audio is a masterful depth psychology transformation experience delivered as story and lecture, by Jungian psychoanalyst and cantadora (storyteller) Dr. Clarissa Pinkola Estés, and bears listening to again and again.
