Dr. EstÚs asks, "Did you know, you were born as the first, and the last and the best and the only one of your kind, and that eccentricity is the first sign of giftedness? These are two of the crone truths I have to offer you." If you have any doubt, come join us at the fireside of The Dangerous Old Woman for the soul-healing wisdom that will ignite your creativity and support your highest calling in life. Three decades in the writing, The Dangerous Old Woman presents part one of Dr. Clarissa Pinkola EstÚs' masterwork. In six "inspire 'til you're on fire" sessions, Dr. EstÚs animates the archetypal patterns of the Wise Woman through her original stories, poetry, and blessings. Old While Young, and Young While Old: We are born with two forces that give us every lens we need to see who we really are: the wild and ever-young force of imagination, which contains intuition and instinct, and the wise elder force of knowledge, which holds boundaries and carries the heart of the visionary. Through captivating stories and insights, Dr. EstÚs illustrates why this twofold way of being "old while young, and young while old" is the secret to holding and replenishing the center, thus living wildly and wisely ensouled amidst life's travails and triumphs. Your Legacy: Wild and Wise, Both "If you are not free to be who you are, you are not free," says Dr. EstÚs. Begin and deepen the work of bringing your one-of-a-kind legacy into the world following the trail blazed by the Dangerous Old Woman. She who stops at nothing to nourish, protect, and guide us in the offering of all our creative gifts. Stories, Poems, and Blessings Include: "The Angelic Ten": Old Guidance for One's Sanity. "Standing in My Danger": The Good Meaning of the Word "Dangerous". "Snow White": When Gifts Have Been Poisoned. Grandmother Wisdom: "Los Cinco Espiritus, The Five Women Spirits". "The Vashinger and the Return of the Vampires". "The Ruby Red Fox": About Seduction. "Las Tres Osas, the Three Old Re-Weavers of Torn Lives". "The Man Who Hated Trees": Nature, the Unrepentant Mother. "The Jealous Girls and the Old Woman Under the Lake". "When a Good Mother Dies": What Gifts Ever Remain. "The Precious Museum Tree": The Hidden Life. "What Did You Dream? What Did You Dream?"

Book Description:

Contains over one hundred myths & stories in this lyrical study. Dr. Estes turns her attention to the figure of the wise old woman & what she can teach us about the archetypal source of all knowledge & strength - the eternal wisdom nature. As a child, Dr. Estes learned from her family that wisdom flows from one's capacity "...to be old while young, & young while old." Once this psychological & spiritual power is awakened, we can have access to it at any time. Through her own family's hard-won stories, & myths & fables encompassing 25 years of research & inquiry, Dr. Estes teaches how we can embody this fearless & loving force

About the Author:

Clarissa Pinkola Estes was born in Indiana in 1943 to parents of Spanish and Mexican ancestry, but was later adopted by Hungarian immigrants. She received her Ph.D. from the Union Institute in Cincinnati, Ohio, and was certified as a Jungian analyst in 1984. She worked as a psychoanalyst in private practice and developed and taught the Writing as Liberation of the Spirit program in state and federal prisons. Estes served as executive director of the C.G. Jung Center for Education and Research and cofounded and codirected Colorado Authors for Gay and Lesbian Equal Rights. One of Estes's better-known writings, Women Who Run with the Wolves: Myths and Stories of the Wild Woman Archetype (1992), is drawn from tales and myths she heard firsthand from members of such cultures as Asian, Mexican, African, and Greek. She also wrote The Gift of Story (1993). Her books can be found indexed under Psychology, Women's Studies, Mythology, Spiritual Development, and Poetry.
