In Women Who Run with the Wolves, Dr. Clarissa Pinkola Estés unfolds rich intercultural myths, fairy tales, folk tales, & 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 & commentaries, we retrieve, examine, love, & understand the Wild Woman, and hold her against our deep psyches as one who is both magic and medicine.
In Woman Who Run with the Wolves, Dr. Estés has created a new lexicon for describing the female psyche. Fertile & life-giving, it is a psychology of women in the truest sense, a knowing of the soul
“I am grateful to Women Who Run with the Wolves & to Dr. Clarissa Pinkola Estés. The work shows the reader how glorious it is to be daring, to be caring, & to be women. Everyone who can read should read this book.”—Maya Angelou
