Product Description

The Red Shoes This dramatic excursion into the realm of the soul illuminates how we are driven to destructive behavior by ignoring our inner needs. Join Dr. Estes as she tells the story of The Red Shoes, and analyzes how cultural pressure and inner hunger lead to the addiction/self-destruction cycle. Healing, she says, comes from a life "made by hand" that is a unique extension of the instinctual self. A treasu... Full description

We all have problems with addictions of some sort.
I don't think one cd will be a 'cure' but this cd can help a little.
Clarissa gives the impression of being sincere and compassionate.
The RED SHOES is a lovely little story well told and gives plenty of food for thought.
I find her cd's can be listened to again and again.

Clarissa Pinkola Estes truly captures the essence and roots of addiction in this enthralling cd, based around the story of The Red Shoes. She goes beyond the basics of addiciton and enfolds the depth of addiciton that is present in most, if not all of us...addiciton beyond that of substance abuse, for example, and showing us the nature of addiciton in everyday life, present in humanity as it searches for true self and Soul, but fashions instead, a false self, and anything to fill a void. The Red Shoes is rich in symbolism and metaphor. Dr Estes' voice and delivery adds to the overall effect, bringing us comfort and wisdom in the light of painful affliction, addiciton and searching. I truly thank her for what she brings through this deep, insightful story and teaching.

Excellent 24 April 2000
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio Cassette
Clarissa Pinkola Estes has a remarkable ability to teach through storytelling. She weaves a story that is vivid, beautiful, and powerful. Her insights that are shared through her interpretation of the classic story of the Red Shoes were very helpful to me in understanding more about the nature of addiction. The tape helped me to envision a way out of the spiral of addiction and I found it very comforting and helpful.

A self -crafted life 31 May 2009
By M. Howe - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This is is an amazing story that illustrated the importance in understanding the need for self-crafting one's own life. Sometimes, if we are not careful the wish for an easier life can take us to places we later regret. This story and analysis held the interest of my 16-year old son and at the end its all he wanted to talk about for hours afterwards.

Listening with your inner ear 19 Sep 2010
By Natalia - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Those who have read Dr C.P.Estes "Women Who Run With The Wolves" already know the story this recording is based on. But the quality of listening to it in spoken word is unparalleled. First of all, you can hear what the author stresses in order to understand the meaning of the story better. Second, it's easier to digest on a deeper level of psyche, with your inner ear. Third, it has an artistic quality to it, what you hear is supposed to touch your senses, wake up your consciousness, especially when Dr Estes sings a song in intervals between every part and in the end of this recording. And she does it so breathtakingly, not only because it is sang with clear and well-trained voice, but her song also contains a poetical description of what was just said.
Of course it is best to listen to it at home, in peace and quietude, but I also tried to take it outside with me on my iPod and it worked wonders. You go into the outer world with a calm voice in your ears which helps to perceive your surroundings without losing the conscious center.
Dr Estes' works are not for everyone. If you expect easy solutions to your problems given to you in one quick dose, you should consider a different author maybe. This has nothing to do with pop psychology. You must be willing to go deep and prepare yourself for listening to/reading it over and over again before it clicks inside of you, before you'll be able to apply this wisdom to your individual self. The main advantage is, however, that the recording helps with this process like anything else.

The Red Shoes 8 Feb 2009

Clarissa Pinkola-Estes is the best! An incredible Jungian storyteller who clarifies so much of the unconscious mind and imageries.
