Women Who Run With The Wolves

One day I was sitting in a friend’s living room.  There were several books and magazines fanned out across the top of her coffee table.  One, in particular, jumped out at me.  It was black with gold lettering.  I was drawn to it immediately.  I picked it up.  The rest is history.

This book was “Women Who Run With The Wolves” by Clarissa Pinkola Estes: Myths and Stories of the Wild Woman Archetype.  For those who are ready for a journey that will change your life and leave you raw with emotion, this book will do that.

It is a difficult read. It is difficult in the sense that it is told in a way that evokes untapped emotions. However, even my 75 year old mother read it.  She discovered much of her true self in those pages, as did I.  The Chapter titled “Blue Beard”, was particularly emotional for me.  Anger welled up from somewhere I had not suspected and I found myself unable to continue for a few days while I dealt with it.

If there is one book I would enthusiastically recommend, it would be “Women Who Run With The Wolves”.
