Download and read online Women who Run with the Wolves in PDF and EPUB 'Women Who Run With The Wolves isn't just another book. It is a gift of profound insight, wisdom and love. An oracle from one who knows.' Alice Walker In the classic Women Who Run With The Wolves, Clarissa Pinkola Estes tells us about the 'wild woman', the wise and ageless presence in the female psyche that gives women their creativity, energy and power. For centuries, the 'wild woman' has been repressed by a male-orientated value system which trivialises women's emotions. Using a combination of time-honoured stories and contemporary casework, Estes reveals that the 'wild woman' in us is innately healthy, passionate and wise. Thoughtfully written and compelling in its arguments, Women Who Run With The Wolves gives readers a new sense of direction, a self confidence and purpose in their lives.

Download and read online Untie the Strong Woman in PDF and EPUB "Call her Our Lady, La Nuestra Señora, Holy Mother—or one of her thousands of other names," says Dr. Estés. "She wears hundreds of costumes, dozens of skin tones, is patroness of deserts, mountains, stars and oceans. Thus she comes to us in billions of images, but at her centre, she is the Great Immaculate Heart." With Untie the Strong Woman, Dr. Clarissa Pinkola Estés invites us to reconnect with "the fierce and loving Blessed Mother who is friendly, but never tame—she who flies to our aid when the road is long and our hearts are broken, ever ready to rekindle the inner fire of our creative souls." In her first book in more than a decade, Dr. Estés illuminates Our Lady through blessings, images, and narrative, including: • Stories of connecting with the Blessed Mother, including "Meeting the Lady in Red", and "Untie the Strong Woman" • Blessed Mother's many images from around the world, including "Litany of The Mother Road: A Chant of Her Incandescent Names"; "A Man Named Mary"; and "The Marys of Mother Africa" • The wild side of her love, including "Massacre of the Dreamers: The Maiz Mother"; "Holy Card of Swords Through the Heart"; and "Guadalupe is a Girl Gang Leader in Heaven" "The Blessed Mother is often 'Friend to the friendless one' and Mother to all—yet too many of us have been estranged from her for far too long." Untie the Strong Woman opens a channel to this sacred and nurturing force—"breaking through walls that have held us back from her presence, and instead, inviting us to shelter under her starry green mantle".

'If you don't love and honour yourself with every fiber of your being, if you struggle with owning your power and passion, then it is time for an inner revolution! It is time to claim your Warrior Goddess energy.'
This is a book that teaches women to see themselves as perfect just the way they are, to resist society's insistence that they seek value, wholeness and love through something outside themselves, such as a husband, children, boyfriend, career or a spiritual path.
Author HeatherAsh Amara has written this book as a message for women struggling to find themselves under these false ideals. Amara challenges women to be 'warrior goddesses', to be a woman who:
- Ventures out to find herself
- Combats fear and doubt
- Reclaims her power and vibrancy
- Demonstrates her strength of compassion and fierce love
Her approach draws on the wisdom from Buddhism, Toltec wisdom and ancient earth-based goddess spirituality, and combines them all with the goal of helping women become empowered, authentic and free.
Included here are personal stories, rituals and exercises that encourage readers to begin their own journey towards becoming warrior goddesses.
Download and read online The Faithful Gardener in PDF and EPUB Clarissa Pinkola Estés, Ph.D., the internationally known poet, psychoanalyst, and author of the seminal classic Women Who Run With The Wolves (99 weeks on the New York Times bestseller list, translated into eighteen languages, and a bestseller worldwide), touches our lives anew, rendering in the strong and lyrical voice for which she has become known a powerful series of her signature healing stories. These elegantly interlocked tales of loss, survival, and fierce rebirth center around Dr. Estes's uncle, a war-ravaged Hungarian peasant farmer and refugee, a faithful gardener, and a storehouse of stories who was one of the "dancing fools, wise old crows, grumpy sages, and 'almost saints' who made up the old people" in Estés's childhood. Told with graceful simplicity, deep feeling, generous humor, and profound optimism, The Faithful Gardener is, at its captivating core, the story of an open-hearted child who listened well to her old-country elders and who grew up to remember, to bear witness, and, as one of the premier storytellers of our times, to remind readers and listeners of all ages of "that magisterial life force within all things that strengthens us in times of turmoil or transition, that faithful force which can never die."
