One of my go-to books when I feel blocked!

Clarissa makes it easier for me to understand where those blocks are coming from and how to break through them!

Creative Fire

I really enjoy the freedom of listening to the book as opposed to reading. This format suits me in that I can work on my digital artwork and listen/explore my inner psyche - which is what art is about. Clarissa Pinkola Estes has been a favorite author of mine since reading "Women Who Run With The Wolves" years ago. That singular book shaped my ideas of my self and women's lives considerably. This book, "The Creative Fire," further serves to inform my deep longing to make friends with my shadow self, with stories and myth. I highly recommend this book to any type of artist who wants to remove creative blocks, and understand how they got there in the first place.

I find myself at a Threshold

I always find myself drawn to Dr. Estes work when I enter a period of deep change or transition. She never disappoints me.

Loved it!

I found this audible quite enjoyable. As an artist who experience frequent blocks, Dr. Estes explanations truly resonated with me and I plan to start exercising "active imagination". I recommend this book to every artists struggling to keep their creative fire burning.

Making the mystical feel accessible, real and safe

Love how this book was so deeply spiritual yet very grounded everyday/ness. The creative life is essential to spiritual growth and wholeness, this piece helping connect those dots and has me feeling inspired and reverent about the power of my creative life!
