This book Changed my life forever.

Within every woman there lives a powerful force, filled with good instincts, passionate creativity, and ageless knowing. She is the Wild Woman, who represents the instinctual nature of women. But she is an endangered species. In Women Who Run With the Wolves, Dr. Estés unfolds rich intercultural myths, fairy tales, and stories, many from her own family, in order to help women reconnect with the fierce, healthy, visionary attributes of this instinctual nature. Through the stories and commentaries in this remarkable book, we retrieve, examine, love, and understand the Wild Woman and hold her against our deep psyches as one who is both magic and medicine. Dr. Estés has created a new lexicon for describing the female psyche. Fertile and life-giving, it is a psychology of women in the truest sense, a knowing of the soul.

Love this book!! I will say though that I tried to read it and didn't get into it. Then I heard her telling some of the stories on audio and fell in love. There is almost this transmission effect from hearing her voice. After that, I got into the book.

I find her so practical, accepting and authentic in how we can view and treat ourselves.

Thanks for the recommendation. I have tried many times to get into this book and couldn't. I'm going to pick it up again!

I've had this book on my shelf for years and only picked it up after dd#1. I'm almost 3/4 of the way through and I agree, it is life transforming.
