Description

  • Great product!
  • NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • Book club pick for Emma Watson’s Our Shared Shelf • “A deeply spiritual book [that] honors
    what is tough, smart and untamed in women.”—The Washington Post Book World

    Within every woman there lives a powerful force, filled with good instincts, passionate creativity, and ageless
    knowing. She is the Wild Woman, who represents the instinctual nature of women. But she is an endangered species. For
    though the gifts of wildish nature belong to us at birth, society’s attempt to “civilize” us into rigid roles has
    muffled the deep, life-giving messages of our own souls.

    In Women Who Run with the Wolves, Dr. Clarissa Pinkola Estés unfolds rich intercultural myths, fairy tales, folk tales,
    and stories, many from her own traditions, in order to help women reconnect with the fierce, healthy, visionary
    attributes of this instinctual nature. Through the stories and commentaries in this remarkable book, we retrieve,
    examine, love, and understand the Wild Woman, and hold her against our deep psyches as one who is both magic and
    medicine.

    Dr. Estés has created a new lexicon for describing the female psyche. Fertile and life-giving, it is a psychology of
    women in the truest sense, a knowing of the soul.

    Praise for Women Who Run with the Wolves

    “Women Who Run with the Wolves isn’t just another book. It is a gift of profound insight, wisdom, and love. An oracle
    from one who knows.”—Alice Walker

    “I am grateful to Women Who Run with the Wolves and to Dr. Clarissa Pinkola Estés. The work shows the reader how
    glorious it is to be daring, to be caring, and to be women. Everyone who can read should read this book.”—Maya Angelou

    “An inspiring book, the ‘vitamins for the soul’ [for] women who are cut off from their intuitive nature.”—San Francisco
    Chronicle

    “Stands out from the pack . . . a joy and sparkle in [the] prose . . . This book will become a bible for women
    interested in doing deep work. . . . It is a road map of all the pitfalls, those familiar and those horrifically
    unexpected, that a woman encounters on the way back to her instinctual self. Wolves . . . is a gift.”—Los Angeles Times

    “A mesmerizing voice . . . dramatic storytelling she learned at the knees of her [immigrant] aunts.”—Newsweek

    “The work of Clarissa Pinkola Estés, rooted in old and deep family rites and in archetypal psychology, recognizes that
    the soul is not lost, but has been put to sleep. This volume reminds us that we are nature for all our sophistication,
    that we are still wild, and the recovery of that vitality will itself set us right in the world.”—Thomas Moore, author
    of Care of the Soul
