Wisdom and beauty

This is the first time I have written a review and I felt compelled to tell you that this is amazing. Clarissa Pinkola Estes style is a joy to listen to and I felt that I was on this amazing journey of discovery. I will definitely be getting Volume 2!

Mesmerising journey through traditional stories

Where does Theatre of the Imagination, Volume 1 rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

It is a wonderful listen, Clarissa's voice is wonderful to listen to and I will listen to this again. The stories and her commentary around them really kept me mesmerised. There is a lovely trail and connection between the stories which draws you through. And there is a wealth of sub-text and mythical imagery that means the stories are much more than just a few short stories.

Who was your favorite character and why?

This book has excited me about the power of story telling, archetypes and myth. There is a real clarity that comes from the way the stories are told and the connection they make with the listener. I will definitely be making further efforts to learn about story telling, archetypes and myth.

Which scene did you most enjoy?

The story telling skills of Clarissa draw you in quickly, in re-telling each story she uses atmospheric music and her wonderful tone of voice to weave compelling tales and give insights into their origin and meaning.<br/>Each story has a message that touches the listener and brings mythical meaning to light.

If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

Nothing
