Women Who Run With Wolves: Myths and Stories of the Wild Woman Archetype
by Clarissa Pinkola Estés Ph.D. Author
Unfolding rich intercultural myths, fairy tales, folk tales, and stories to help women reconnect with the fierce, healthy, visionary attributes of our instinctual nature. Within every woman there lives a powerful force, filled with good instincts, passionate creativity, and ageless knowing. 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. Through stories and commentaries, we retrieve, examine, love, and understand the Wild Woman, and hold her against our deep psyches as one who is both magic and medicine.
