Contained within Theater of the Imagination are the great universal themes - tales of loss and ressurection, of love and sacrifice; of the courage to survive - yet it is as if Dr. Estes is speaking only to you.

I really do like Ms. Estes and her stories and wisdom, but sometimes I wonder about them....for example, there is a story, in which she references some German words and their origin as it relates to the story , but my German husband was listening, and he didn't recognize any words she was referencing or remotely even close. Sometimes I think her gift of storytelling takes over and suddenly you have no idea what is going on and feel like you are going around and around in a circle . Without taking away much. I prefer shorter , clearer stories.
"Wonderful beyond words"
Compulsory life changing listening.
Even if your heart hasnt realised it needs to be opened- listen to this and it will open blossom and bloom.
Dr. Estes is a gem of story telling that rescue and clarifies much of our own nature.
I am glad I found out about her work.
"most brilliant woman on EARTH"
I LOVE CLARISSA PINKOLA ESTES. She has taught me so much and inspired me so much. I LOVE HER STORIES, never has there been a more brilliant woman then her. LOVE HER! so much! I tell everyone about her. LISTEN AND RE LISTEN AND Relisten. SHE's a rockstar.
"From the lap of the Goddess"
This is a rich and interesting listening experience and I found the audio edition completely absorbing. Because of the density of the work I may have struggled to give it the kind of attention I ended up giving it had I read it instead.
Clarissa Pinkola Estes is a story teller par excellence. She is in my experience of a lifetime's avid consumption of stories without comparison - interesting, inspirational, thought provoking, intuitive and insightful. Theatre of the Imagination brought joy to my day and a delight in being human!
I enjoyed the story of Skeleton Woman. So many twists and turns literally and symbolically but also some powerful insights into the nature of relationships. Insights that you might struggle to comprehend within some of relationship specific books on the market.
My favourite parts of the book were Clarissa Pinkola Estes interpretation of the symbolic language of the stories she has such a flair for telling. They were always powerful and left me in another place, deep in thought.
I absolutely love Theatre of the Imagination and the fact that I will revisit it over and over again. A great find but I wouldn't expect anything less of Clarissa Pinkola Estes. Her writing has had a profound effect on my outlook on life.
