Women who Run with the Wolves
Women who Run with the Wolves: Contacting the Power of the Wild Woman | Clarissa Pinkola Est's
'Women Who Run With The Wolves isn't just another book. It is a gift of profound insight, wisdom and love. An oracle from one who knows.' Alice Walker In the classic Women Who Run With The Wolves, Clarissa Pinkola Estes tells us about the 'wild woman', the wise and ageless presence in the female psyche that gives women their creativity, energy and power. For centuries, the 'wild woman' has been repressed by a male-orientated value system which trivialises women's emotions. Using a combination of time-honoured stories and contemporary casework, Estes reveals that the 'wild woman' in us is innately healthy, passionate and wise. Thoughtfully written and compelling in its arguments, Women Who Run With The Wolves gives readers a new sense of direction, a self confidence and purpose in their lives.

Still plodding through and enjoying this one. My reading time is about to get shorter as I start study this year. I‘m not half way through this yet! I fear I will still be reading it at Easter.

All this required for reading. The noise cancelling headphones to block some back ground noise, the note book for notes (this is the kind of book one must make notes about) and my favourite pen a penpal sent me! Not shown...a massive ice water to keep cool with! In I go!

jb72 I‘m hoping to start that book next month. 2w
Darklunarose @jb72 it‘s really good. Give yourself plenty of time though, it‘s very in-depth and not a quick read. 2d
jb72 @Darklunarose Thanks for letting me know! Molly Roberts on YouTube recommended the book, and I was lucky enough to find a used copy. 2d

First coffee of many today. My youngest has literally not been asleep all night 😩

Johanna414 Those days are the worst! I hope everyone sleeps better tonight! 3w
LA_Mead My youngest is getting another molar so no sleep for me either. 3w
Darklunarose @Johanna414 they are the worst. She is still on and off. Something is upsetting her I think and it‘s translating to sleep not happening even with medication. We have a big year and I think anxiety is kicking in and she isn‘t able to express that properly. She just knows she is upset, sad, frustrated. She was up at 4 am this morning but thankfully has gone back to sleep. Poor kiddo. Being a teenager is hard enough without anxiety rearing it‘s head. 3w
Darklunarose @LA_Mead I remember those days well, teething is hell for little ones, so painful😞 my youngest is 15, so those days are long gone, she has never slept well and been pulling all nighters since she was 18 months. I am thinking with some of the changes coming this year her anxiety is right up. She tells me she is angry, sad, frustrated but can‘t tell me why. She was up at 4am after crashing at midnight last night, thank goodness she is back asleep. 3w

Still going with this book. It‘s slow reading because there is so much to take in, and because my children won‘t give me 10 mins solid reading time in one go! I am enjoying it though.

Darklunarose @Jeg I am really enjoying it. My Devine feminine and femininity collection keeps growing. This ones a keeper so far! 1mo
ravenlee I started this one over a year ago and found it fascinating, but haven‘t been able to get back to it. Partly because the mass market I have has tiny print, and it already requires some concentration to read. I need to pick it up again. 1mo
Darklunarose @ravenlee this one has tiny print too...it‘s really not good for ones eyes. I now pay attention tot he size of the hook I buy online...hoping a bigger book means bigger print. 1mo

Morning reading before getting ready for work, just finished the intro. Have heard mixed things about this one, it has been in my tbr for a long time. I have to say, I enjoy the comparisons between woman and wolf. It‘s refreshing and I dig it.

kezzlou85 @Clwojick so is it just reading as much as you can in the week or is there any set goals or targets. 5mo
Clwojick @kezzlou85 you can set any goal that works for you. Whether that be a set amount of hours, completeted books, or pages read. I‘ve chosen an hourly goal, with 3 specific books that I *need* to finish and then I‘m winging it from there. ♥️📚 5mo
kezzlou85 @Clwojick oh cool. Sounds nice and simple. Maybe I'll finally hit the 24 hours. That's a good goal. 5mo

This book fed my soul. One of my favourite quotes is "Though she be but little, she is fierce" and this book is all about that. She uses the word moist quite a lot in a way that reclaims and empowers it. I love allegory and metaphor and this book is filled with them. This is definitely going to be a re-read with a highlighter and notepad to hand as there's so much good stuff to absorb. This book is marketed to women, I think it applies to men too.

IuliaCG A fabulous book! 10mo

Reading this book took me on a journey of self discovery, connected me to the inherent 'wild woman' and provided me the shelter of the solidarity of sisterhood during time of self doubt and delusions.

...Freezing up is the worst thing a person can do.” Im still taking my time reading this book. Just a few pages at a time. Then I‘ll walk away from the book, and return to it with fresh eyes and a ready mind. I‘m using my reading magnifying glass- the tiny text gets hard to read. Anyone have any thoughts to share about this book?

Had to bail on this one only bc I was reading it too slowly and it was due back at the library. I listened to the audiobook last year and enjoyed it for the most part.

I lost my library book during my move for over a week, and that encouraged me to order my own copy. I was bummed out that it was a paperback 🙁. I‘ll have to keep my eyes open for a hardcover. I guess I‘ll return the library their copy and start reading mine. I know someone is waiting for me to return it. I hope they find it as enjoyable as I did. @ravenlee how‘s your reading coming along? I‘m happy I can write on my copy now 🤓

MelAnn I love that book and I hate the paperback - it‘s on cheap paper - I can‘t stand to touch the pages to turn them! I feel your pain. 1y
RavenLovelyReads @MelAnn Yes 😭it‘s pretty awful. I‘m going to keep my fingers crossed that I can find one at our local Half Price Books. 1y

ravenlee Chugging along, little snippets at a time. I like to process it for a while before diving back in. And most of my reading time is during daughter‘s dance class, so I only get a solid hour once a week! 1y

“I‘m always taken by how deeply women like to dig in the earth.... I think they are digging down to the two-million-year-old woman.... They want her for a present to themselves, for with her they feel of a piece and at peace.”

My mother has always felt most at peace and balanced when she‘s in her garden. She gets antsy for spring because she needs to get her fingers in the dirt. We‘ve always called her a garden witch, but I guess she‘s La Loba.

She comes to us through sound as well; through music which vibrates the sternum, excites the heart; it comes through the drum, the whistle, the call, and the cry. It comes through the written and the spoken word; sometimes a word, a sentence or a poem or a story, is so resonant, so right, it causes us to remember, at least for an instant, what substance we are really made from, and where is our true home.

ravenlee Thanks to @RavenLovelyReads for inspiring me to pick this up! 1y
RavenLovelyReads I hope you‘re enjoying it! I‘m taking my time reading it- I want to fully grasp everything she writes about-the author full of information! 1y

I️ wasn‘t so sure about this one when I️ started it, but so many women I️ admire love it, so I️ thought it was time to give it a try. I‘m sure there are probably some fair criticisms of this book or those who find it problematic, gender-essentialist. All I️ can say is that while reading it, I️ felt very nourished and that on some deeper, intangible level of consciousness, I️ could feel good work being done. 🐺🌒💃
