Dr. Estés asks, "Did you know, you were born as the first, and the last and the best and the only one of your kind, and that eccentricity is the first sign of giftedness? These are two of the crone truths I have to offer you." If you have any doubt, come join us at the fireside of The Dangerous Old Woman for the soul-healing wisdom that will ignite your creativity and support your highest calling in life. Three decades in the writing, The Dangerous Old Woman presents part one of Dr. Clarissa Pinkola Estés' masterwork. In six "inspire 'til you're on fire" sessions, Dr. Estés animates the archetypal patterns of the Wise Woman through her original stories, poetry, and blessings. Old While Young, and Young While Old: We are born with two forces that give us every lens we need to see who we really are: the wild and ever-young force of imagination, which contains intuition and instinct, and the wise elder force of knowledge, which holds boundaries and carries the heart of the visionary. Through captivating stories and insights, Dr. Estés illustrates why this twofold way of being "old while young, and young while old" is the secret to holding and replenishing the center, thus living wildly and wisely ensouled amidst life's travails and triumphs. Your Legacy: Wild and Wise, Both "If you are not free to be who you are, you are not free," says Dr. Estés. Begin and deepen the work of bringing your one-of-a-kind legacy into the world following the trail blazed by the Dangerous Old Woman. She who stops at nothing to nourish, protect, and guide us in the offering of all our creative gifts. Stories, Poems, and Blessings Include: "The Angelic Ten": Old Guidance for One's Sanity. "Standing in My Danger": The Good Meaning of the Word "Dangerous". "Snow White": When Gifts Have Been Poisoned. Grandmother Wisdom: "Los Cinco Espiritus, The Five Women Spirits". "The Vashinger and the Return of the Vampires". "The Ruby Red Fox": About Seduction. "Las Tres Osas, the Three Old Re-Weavers of Torn Lives". "The Man Who Hated Trees": Nature, the Unrepentant Mother. "The Jealous Girls and the Old Woman Under the Lake". "When a Good Mother Dies": What Gifts Ever Remain. "The Precious Museum Tree": The Hidden Life. "What Did You Dream? What Did You Dream?"
