warming the Stone Child

Dr Clarissa Pinkola Estes speaks from a profound place of empathy and knowing. The knowledge and insights she shares about the pain and experiences of the abandoned child make a deep connection which I believe goes beyond our intellect and cognitive processes. She somehow managed to bring together the pieces of my fragmented soul. I wept as her soothing voice caressed the pain that had never been touched and was astonished to feel as if I had received a healing balm. To know at last that I was not born this way, but through lack of guidance and nurturance I had become this way. The myths and tales that she weaves through the book add rather than detract from the main theme, challenging false constructs of how we perceive ourselves and how we can change that view. I have since bought all of her other audio books and have not been left disappointed.
