I listened to this on a day when I felt lost, overwhelmed, and frustrated with myself. I immediately felt soothed when Clarissa Pinkola Estes started to speak. Her voice is warm and authentic. She speaks of magic and wisdom and of the power of words to heal.
The stories in this collection center around the mythology of the stone child, who is not tended to or honored, and whose divine spark becomes obscured beneath hardness and darkness - symbols for the defenses that inevitably arise when the safety of a vulnerable child is threatened by abuse, abandonment, or neglect.
The stories are linked with psychoanalytic commentary on the causes and symptoms of this type of wounding from the Jungian perspective. More than once I recognized my own shadows being addressed - my own unmet cries for mothering, nurturing, and safety - in a way that was validating, reassuring, and heartening.
Clocking in at an hour and a half, this is a short, easy listen packed with powerful, insightful, soothing words. Highly recommended for those whose souls need a breath of warmth and whose hearts need a compassionate hug. Put it on, light a candle, and pour yourself a mug of tea. Listen and remember that you are cared for and needed in this world.

Dr Clarissa Pinkola Estes speaks from a profound place of empathy and knowing. The knowledge and insights she shares about the pain and experiences of the abandoned child make a deep connection which I believe goes beyond our intellect and cognitive processes. She somehow managed to bring together the pieces of my fragmented soul. I wept as her soothing voice caressed the pain that had never been touched and was astonished to feel as if I had received a healing balm. To know at last that I was not born this way, but through lack of guidance and nurturance I had become this way. The myths and tales that she weaves through the book add rather than detract from the main theme, challenging false constructs of how we perceive ourselves and how we can change that view. I have since bought all of her other audio books and have not been left disappointed.

This resonated at a very deep level both for work done but also for most of the Unmothered women I know who seek to find the Live and to lose the fear. Thankyou.
What an amazing story teller. This book needs to be listened to over and over.
