I originally put this book on hold because it was on Emma Watson's Shared Shelve List of books everyone should read. I am glad that I did. This book should be read in various stages of life, as your life changes you should re-read this book. There is so much meaning and what I got out of the book would be different than what you get out of the book. There is not a universal message but rather one that can be applied within each person's life uniquely. It has changed the way I am going to continue going forward in my life.
Everyone everywhere should read this book, the earlier in life the better. Fantastic to read and reread. I am myself fearlessly and authentically, resulting in my relationship with myself, the people around me, and life being more loving, compassionate and happy.
I am stronger and wiser after reading this book. Empowering.
So I had to return this book before I finished reading it, but I liked it enough that I have ordered a copy for myself off amazon.ca. The author provides a different myth or story in each chapter, then analyzes the story using psychological terms. It's an analysis of the female soul, telling us what happens when it is damaged and acknowledging the way that society encourages women to be less than who we are. It's brilliant. I think every woman should read this book. I know that I'll be reading it more than once!
This is a must-read for every living being. Pinkola Estes weaves together stories of healing, discovery, and acceptance by combining her incredible skill with familiar folktales, and psychoanalysis that leave the reader with a sense of purpose, a sense of hope, a desire to confront what is not healthy and soul-nurturing in our lives. These are empowering, sometimes hard to swallow, medicine stories about the strength of the Wild Woman within us all.
It is a book you will always learn from regardless of how many times you've read it.
A great read about the female archetype, comparing women to wolves in their strength, grace and loyalty (in the style of Jung).
