Poetry

I really loved this book and the narrators vioce, I will listen to this again.



I would however also say that it might not be everyones cup of tea, so I would recomend listening to the sample before purchasing.

Clarissa Pinkola Estes at her best

I've read Women who run with the Wolves many times and think it is totally wonderful. This is a great collection of short tales and wisdom in a similar vein from Clarissa. She has such a beautiful voice and is so eloquent and easy to listen to. If you liked Women who run with the wolves you'll love this!

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.
