A Woman’s Bible = Women Who run With Wolves
There are two books I believe every woman should have in their arsenal: Dr. Clarissa Pinkola Estes’, Women Who Run With Wolves and Christiane Northrup’s, Women’s Bodies Women’s Wisdom. I first read these books in my early twenties, but I just dusted off my two bibles and have realized that there is so much I never absorbed or understood when I first read them. A few weeks ago I asked my eldest daughter to read a chapter in Wolves on intuition. She begrudgingly did, and I’m hoping she absorbed a fraction of the wise words. If I can pass anything of value to her, it is to hone in on that intuitive piece that may sometimes be nothing more than a small voice seeming to speak to us through our dreams, whisper in our bellies, or imagination. Estes has bestowed upon us all a great gift. A map to hep us navigate our own unconscious by analyzing and retelling the myths, stories and fairy tales that we have heard since childhood. I know for myself I had to dismantle a whole life to get back to my feral yet authentic roots. Sometimes it’s a question of survival to get back to our wild selves . . .
Here are a few quotes from the book:
