The Archetypal Power in Women's Dreams

Every night of our lives, we experience between five and seven dreams, each reflecting our most intimate passions and conflicts. Dr. Clarissa Pinkola Estes compares each one to a riddle. Once solved, it can provide a surprising answer to an unresolved question buried within the psyche.

On In the House of the Riddle Mother , Estes surveys the most common archetypal patterns women experience while dreaming. Based on 20 years of work, this audio seminar is a dense, poetic storehouse of information about the dream life of women. Information is divided into 17 instructive sections, each devoted to analyzing distinct dream motifs.

Suggests that many common dreams of women, such as the 'Dark man', Finding Treasure, Snakes and more, represent questions from a woman's psyche. Understanding the dream's theme as it relates to personal symbolism as well as to riddles and teachings from fairy tales will help resolve personal questions of the psyche. Also helps define our passions. (Personally, I found I only shared 3 of these 'common' dreams with most women, but still the depth of analysis Dr. Estes offers really is illuminating.) An outstanding personal growth tool.
