Publisher's Summary

Where is the memory of who we really are, who sent us here, and what our work is here? And why so often are we feeling unusual, so different, so eccentric, so belonging to a tribe of one? Dr. Clarissa Pinkola Estes, published in 34 languages and one of the most far-reaching artist-psychoanalyists of our time, teaches that in archetypal imagination, "Mother Night is the quintessential medial woman, the woman who can walk in two worlds... 'the one who knows' and who can reveal solid ways of living and unleashing creative life in both worlds."

A wise and masterful story-teller does it again.

Contrary to the opinions of the first reviewer, I found the narrator to be immediately engaging. Actually, Dr. Estes is not "narrating" this audiobook, but talking directly to you--and talking with considerable warmth, humor, intelligence and, most importantly, deep insight into the "medial" mind, the creative psyche, its trials and triumphs. With her story-telling, Estes takes you almost magically to a place within yourself, your intuitive self, where a kind of deep knowing becomes a luminous presence and creative ideas rise to the surface. Her voice, her insights, and her wonderful stories are as powerful, imaginative, and true as ever.

The Voice

Any additional comments?

Other reviews complaining about the professionalism of the recording and narration concerned me, but I love Clarissa's work so much, I bought this anyway.

When I heard the recording, I had to laugh at the irony. Yes, she breathes, and laughs, and sounds exactly like the very real woman she is. Her voice is lovely. Her work is about connecting with our authentic selves. Her work is about how the world of slick professionalism kills our creative soul.

To those who have heard Clarissa before: don't worry. It is her usual lovely voice, her usual authentic self, her usual beautiful delivery.

This book goes deeper. If you have read/heard her other work, you will want this.
