Clarissa Pinkola Estes

Warming the Stone Child

Insight into Emotional Hunger, January 10, 2007

Clarissa Pinkola Estes, Ph.D. is the author of Women Who Run With the Wolves and is an award-winning poet. Her voice is mysterious and beautiful. In "Warming the Stone Child" she introduces myths to give insight into the psyche of adults who felt they were abandoned in some way during childhood.

This 2-CD set reveals the secrets from the English tale of the Stolen Woman Moon, the Inuit fable of the Stone Child, The Fisherman's Wife and the story of Little Red Riding Hood.

The CDs present the following topics:

The Light within the Unmothered Child
The Story of the Stolen Moon Mother
Fairy Tales and the World of the Psyche
Clarity from the Darkness of Life
The Story of Little Red Cap
The Perils of Adolescence
The Stone Child
An Orphan Psyche's Hunger
Engaging the Transformational Process
The Fisherman's Wife
Fighting Death and Winning
Discovering Your Own Story

At first haunting (imagine being told a fairy tale by an expert story teller) and then revealing, this CD set can bring healing and insight to obsessions, emotional hunger and depression. I was amazed at how fairy tales can explain childhood issues that haunt us as adults. Even if you only have an interest in the revelations in myths, fairy tales and Jungian analysis, this will intrigue you. I can also recommend this to anyone who is interested in comfort, nurturing and re-creating the inner mother.

In conclusion, I think unconditional love from a man or a woman can heal you if it is nurturing and true commitment love. What I think the heart longs for is safety in which to blossom. It can take time to heal, but if you find someone to truly love you, then you can be reborn and let the hurts of the past dissolve into the mist of memory.

To healing,

~The Rebecca Review
