Women Who Run With The Wolves Overview:
There lives a powerful force within every woman, filled with good instincts, inspiring creativity, and ageless knowing. She is the Wild Woman, who describes the instinctual nature of women, but she is a threatened species.
For though the gifts of wildish nature belong to us at birth, society’s attempt to “civilize” us into determining roles has muffled the profound, life-giving messages of our souls.
In Women Who Run with Wolves, Dr. Clarissa Pinkola Estés explains rich intercultural myths, fairy tales, folk tales, and stories, many from her traditions, to help women reconnect with the wild, healthy, fantastic attributes of this instinctual nature.
Myths and Stories of the Wild Woman Archetype
Through the stories and commentaries in this remarkable book, we retrieve, examine, love, and experience the Wild Woman and hold her against our intense psyches as one who is both magic and medicine.
Dr. Estés has produced a new thesaurus for describing the female psyche. Fertile and life-giving are women’s psychology in the most precise sense, a knowing of the soul.

This book is my go-to staple to feed my female soul. if anyone can get it right and deep it is Clarissa. to me, she is like the female version of Joseph Campbell. she totally unfolds the female archetypal characters and souls. if you want a book with meat and bones that talks about the issues of the female character and her relationships with other women … within her family … who betray her or abuse her, abandon her or neglect her … and you have had that happen to you and you need healing through profound understanding … then get this book, read it and reread it and digest every bit of hit because there is nothing but soul food in here! thank heaven, God, and angels for Clarissa. she is a national jewel and anything she creates speaks to me and I think it will speak to you as well.
I am still enjoying this book. The stories in it really resonate with me. I had stopped reading it for a couple of months after finishing a story when I had a breakdown about my life. I had started reading the book again to take my mind off of things and the next story, “The Red Shoes” touched a lot on what I am experiencing. Feel a need to escape and get to a life that is happier/soulful. The Ugly Duckling is also one of my favorite stories in this book. The way the author takes the symbols and decodes the meaning and themes of these stories is amazing. As kids hearing these fairy tales we’d never know that there was a deeper meaning to them. As adults, they mean so much more.
This is the book I return to for wisdom and guidance, that I quote to explain life lessons to friends and grandchildren, that I understand better and differently whatever age I am when I reread it, starting at 38 up til now when I am 67. Clarissa Pinkola Estes, a Jungian analyst, and storyteller with a tradition of women storytellers on both sides of her family, tells the original versions of fairy tales and folk tales from around the world and then meticulously, exquisitely exposes the deep hidden archetypal meaning hiding within. From love to anger to finding and learning to trust our wild wisdom, she covers every aspect of women’s lives. I buy spare copies whenever I find them to have on hand to give out whenever I find a receptive soul.
