    1. I don't think anything I've ever read for children raised by abusive parents has ever resonated as much as this did, and then reframed that childhood in ways that allowed me to see potential and gifts in the past I carry with me. I've never felt so understood. The stories are rich and wonderfully read, and this will not be the only thing I listen to from the wonderfully rich storyteller, Clarissa Pinkola Estes.


    2. I finished this book in less than 24 hours, that's how enlightening it was. Given to me by a mentor, the book is intended for the unmothered child. It expresses the pain that comes with growing up without a loving parent, but also addresses the unique and special gifts that arise from the emotional absence of a guardian. This book was a lovely reminder that love starts within, and that we, individually, can develop a strong and loving internal mother.


    3. In this audio Clarrisa Pinkola Estes looks at how those who were neglected or abused - from the little-T to big-T trauma (to use more psych terms) - can thrive, and not just survive in life. She makes use of some tales to illustrate parts of the human psyche, and the possibilities that lie within us to deal with our past hurts and deprivations.I am certainly not one for story-telling, fairytales, fiction of any sort really, but here Pinkola Estes definitely illustrates how the lines between fict [...]



    4. I really enjoy Pinkola-Estes work. She has a way of cutting to the heart of matters in a compassionate and enlightening way. I've listened to several of her series, and they are wonderful. I didn't find this one was insightful as others that she's done. Without question it's the best, most honest assessment of adult survivors of childhood abuse. She tells the story of the abused child without sentiment of sympathy. Rather, she shows total empathy and strength. I took a couple of insightful revel [...]


    5. Estes voice is so warm and wise. I love simply listening to her. The stories she shares here are healing for everyone coping with a loss of mothering. I am especially grateful of her description of mothering as wise counsel, not necessarily over-compassionate cuddling. This series is intended to help you along the way in creating your own wise inner mother, even when you have few examples to build from.


    6. Blew me away just a bit. Echoing conversations I've just had recently with several individuals. Lovely audio with the author's lovely voice and voicing of the stories included. Took me YEARS to finally tackle Women Who Run With the Wolves but so glad I did finally wowrk my way through it as it then led me to this gem.


    7. Clarissa Pinkola Estes, PhD is BRILLIANT. I've enjoyed every single book (and audio CD's of her talks) She is a Junian Analyst and progressive thinker.



    8. Clarissa has a love affair with words and stories. She embraces you with them. This is a book on healing. Of breaking through the rock, the defenses to find the treasure. Another read through this book can be read again and again


    9. I can't say enough about any of Dr. Estes books. This one is no different and captured me from the moment of her voice.





    10. It is a CD and it is very healing for someone who has felt or been abandoned by their mother. It is a very nurturing tape.




    11. Warm it up, Chris. Yo I'm about to. Thanks, Clarissa. I tapped the fourth on there for sentiment but it's at least a solid three.



    12. This audio book contains archetypal stories or fables that help one to understand the origin of the “Stone Child,” whom is anyone that did not grow a child because of their experiences at a young age. It is helpful to anyone that wants to understand early childhood experiences as pattern-setting and how to move beyond such boundaries. The stories are sometimes a little slow and detailed, but the broad picture contained in them is quite touching.


    13. i actually listened to this on tape. multiple times. as i went to sleepally, i loved the stories. pinkola-estes is so incredibly talented at storytelling. but her voice is so soothing i really have used it to lull me to sleep numerous times.


    14. I was expecting more of a clinical case study type book, but that's my mistake for not paying enough attention to the book description before I bought it. The topic is definitely interesting to me, but the author's delivery is just too 'psycho babblish' for me.


    15. I found this book helpful, comforting and insightful.For those who have concerns about Dr. Estes 'breathing' in the recorded version, I found that the comforting sound of her voice far outweighed any potential distractions relative to her presentation.



    16. This is a great book that help to understand patterns of behavior and attachment with wrong individuals. The desire to be love and care.


    17. I Love they way CPE teaches through stories. I'll have to really read some of her works, rather than listen, so I can explore a little deeper


    18. I could listen to Clarissa Pinkola Estes tell me stories all day long.As I identify with an "orphan" psyche (though I am not an orphan) this was a good CD for me to listen to during my commute.
