  • Great product!
  • UPDATED, WITH NEW MATERIAL BY THE AUTHOR"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 WalkerWithin 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. In WOMEN WHO RUN WITH THE WOLVES, Dr. Estés unfolds rich
    intercultural myths, fairy tales, and stories, many from her own family, 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."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"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
