This recording was produced specifically for people who create for a living - writers, artists, thinkers, teachers - anyone who must depend on their creative powers every day. Through the seamless retelling of myths and tales gathered from many world cultures, Dr. Clarissa Pinkola Estes examines the inner fires of creativity: what she calls "the nutritive mother of the soul." These timeless stories will familiarize you with the fundamental forces which inspire humans to achieve artistic greatness. Dr. Estes - best known as the author of the national bestseller Women Who Run With the Wolves - concludes with a demonstration of a powerful Jungian technique called "active imagination," which analysts look upon as a dependable tool for finding inspiration and loosening psychic log-jams. The Creative Fire is a wellspring of poetic stories, each one a useful illustration of how creativity illuminates our lives. Additional Contents: The cycles of creativity; incubation; remaining true to your personal vision; the necessity of descent; the myth of Mother Earth; myth of Calaban; the Medial Woman; the archetypal world; what kills creativity; raising creative children; much more.
