Publisher's Summary

The Archetypal Power in Women's Dreams

Every night of our lives, we experience between five and seven dreams, each reflecting our most intimate passions and conflicts. Dr. Clarissa Pinkola Estés compares each one to a riddle. Once solved, it can provide a surprising answer to an unresolved question buried within the psyche. On In the House of the Riddle Mother, Estés surveys the most common archetypal patterns women experience while dreaming. Based on 20 years of work, this audio seminar is a dense, poetic storehouse of information about the dream life of women. Information is divided into 17 instructive sections, each devoted to analyzing distinct dream motifs.

old souls unite

old stories, old ways, remembering our ancestors... Dr. Clarissa Pinkola Estes does an amazing job sharing archetypes from around the world and weaving them into our understanding of ourselves.

Inspiring and Educational

I really enjoyed this book. There are many wonderful stories shared in this book that resonated with my own life. I also enjoyed listening to the dreams of others and what they might signify.

I'm going through a major change in my life, I feel the stories contained within are very supportive of a woman seeking to take hold of her own power.

She never disappoints

Clarissa Pinkola Estés is always my go to for feeling my center in balance again when my soul is in turmoil. She reminds me so much of my friend Cin (may she Rest In Peace) and I find great comfort in her teachings and stories.

Another Exceptional Estes Book

I think I had this on cassette years ago & was delighted to find it on Audible. It is a terrific read/listen. Will listen to more than this once. Dr. Estes is a superb storyteller who displays a great sense of humor woven appropriately throughout the wisdom she imparts so it is never dull, and time flies while listening. I highly recommend.

Insightful

I adore Dr. Estés’ and her work. I find her voice and words to be a healing balm. She brings deep insight, joy and heartfelt meaning to the common dreams of women she has heard over her expansive career. I highly recommend House of the Riddle Mother and ALL of her work.

Profoundly nourishing and inspiring

I absolutely adore everything that comes out of Clarissa 's mouth! Truly divine. As someone who has a very colorful dream life, I already get a lot out of writing down and pondering on my dreams, but this book immediately gave me deeper insights and a richer way to interpret them. I find her voice so soothing, I just love listening in bed before I go to sleep.

fascinating topic

I find Clarissa's voice incredibly soothing, so that helps! but the topic was incredibly interesting and to find out more about my dream life was very helpful.
