Come to the stage between two worlds - come to the Theater of the Imagination. In this six-part live performance series, best-selling author and beloved cantadora (keeper of the old stories), Clarissa Pinkola Estes shares the work of her lifetime: myths, tales, and poetry with the power to nourish and heal. Contained within Theater of the Imagination are the great universal themes - tales of loss and ressurection, of love and sacrifice; of the courage to survive - yet it is as if Dr. Estes is speaking only to you.More

From the lap of the Goddess
This is a rich and interesting listening experience and I found the audio edition completely absorbing. Because of the density of the work I may have struggled to give it the kind of attention I ended up giving it had I read it instead.
Clarissa Pinkola Estes is a story teller par excellence. She is in my experience of a lifetime's avid consumption of stories without comparison - interesting, inspirational, thought provoking, intuitive and insightful. Theatre of the Imagination brought joy to my day and a delight in being human!
I enjoyed the story of Skeleton Woman. So many twists and turns literally and symbolically but also some powerful insights into the nature of relationships. Insights that you might struggle to comprehend within some of relationship specific books on the market.
My favourite parts of the book were Clarissa Pinkola Estes interpretation of the symbolic language of the stories she has such a flair for telling. They were always powerful and left me in another place, deep in thought.
I absolutely love Theatre of the Imagination and the fact that I will revisit it over and over again. A great find but I wouldn't expect anything less of Clarissa Pinkola Estes. Her writing has had a profound effect on my outlook on life.
