As a child growing up in a family of cantadoras (keepers of the old stories), Clarissa Pinkola EstA(c)s learned first-hand how a story told at bedtime can soothe away the troubles of the day and prepare the way for another night's dreams to follow. Now a beloved cantadora herself, EstA(c)s shares this treasured family tradition with you on Bedtime Stories, her own special collection of tales to relax and ease you to sleep. Join this world-renowned Jungian analyst and bestselling author as she explores: How to use stories as healing companions that open an aperture into the divine world of our dreams; the meaning of archetypal figures like Mother Night and the Sandman, and themes such as renewal, enchantment and transformation; original tellings by Dr. EstA(c)s of her bedside favorites, including Sleeping Beauty, The Mouse and the Lion, and more.
