Summary

The Red Shoes is a dramatic excursion into the realm of the soul with analyst Dr. Clarissa Pinkola Estes. Using an ancient tale deeply rooted in our collective psyches, Dr. Estes illuminates how people fall prey to destructive impulses while seeking to balance thier inner lives. In our culture, she begins, we may travel life's path in two ways: In handmade shoes, crafted with love and care according to the unique needs of the individual soul; or In Red Shoes, which promise instant fufillment, but ultimately lead to a painful hollow-split exsistence.

Origins of self-destructive behavior

I'm a fan of Dr. E., and I've "attended" her live webcasts at Sounds True. I could listen to her voice for hours and hours (and come to think of it, I guess I have!). Here, Dr. E. delves into the issue of why we sometimes sabotage ourselves and how we might begin to change this behavior. This book is on par with the rest of her work, and though it is short, every time I listen to it, I pick up on something I missed the last time. I recommend it for repeat listens.

Life changing

One of the most impactful stories I've ever heard. I love everything I've heard from Clarissa Pinkola Estes.
