Untie the Strong Woman: Blessed Mother’s Immaculate Love for the Wild Soul

Clarissa Pinkola Estés. Sounds True, $27.95 (376p) ISBN 978-1-60407-635-6
In the first work by poet and psychoanalyst Estés (Women Who Run with Wolves) in a decade, this brilliant treatment is much larger than the sum of its parts. Estés’s understanding of Our Holy Lady (“she wears a thousand names”) is disturbing and enlightening; she presents a figure who reflects and elevates the essential and inherent qualities of humanity. Through sacred traditions, personal stories, prayers, and images, Estés makes visible the ancient and modern fiercely loving force of the Divine feminine—the Compassionate Mother. “The ultimate Mother Who Gave Birth to Love... bends to tend to the needful soul,” Estés writes. Like the traditional prayer Memorare, through the technology of mind and heart, this book calls readers to awaken with full consciousness “to Her within us: acting like, thinking like, loving like the Holy Mother does.” (Nov.)
