Read full description of the books The Joyous Body: Myths & Stories of the Wise Woman Archetype:Dr. Clarissa Pinkola Estés invites listeners to The Joyous Body. Here, she shares original stories, poems, and psychological commentary about the challenges, remedies, and ancient knowings of the holy female body, that which is not a dumb servant but a divine fellow traveler and consort. Six inspirational sessions celebrate and reclaim the mystery and power of the feminine form, exploring: How to Love the Body Truly ; The Midwife Exemplar: The Body as Radiant Being; The Old Woman as The Original Busy-and-Wise Body; The Great Silverbeards: Making Peace with the Body; Life Size story; The Body Bill of Rights; The Ice Queen: The Distorted Mirror ; I Tell Your Beautiful Body to You ; On remarkable life emerging from the midst of the wound; How the White-Throated Sparrow Came to the New World ; The Dancing Grandmothers. As the wise woman gathers years, like an ancient tree, she grows even more arms, even more flowers and fruits, explains Dr. Estés. She is more rooted, more vast, more sheltering developing her callings to be throughout life: maiden mother, medium, crone, elder, healer, teacher, artist, knowing woman. The Joyous Body welcomes all women to discover the body as Radiant Being ever ready to protect, guide, and support us on the journey of the soul.
