Recomandare-Women who run with the wolves

Women who run with the wolves - Clarissa Pinkola Estes
Despre mitul femeii arhaice.
E asa...revelatoare. Cititi-o!

"So, I say to you with affection, imagistically - be you a Black Wolf, a Northern Gray, a Southern Red or an Arctic White - you are the quintessential criatura. Although some might really prefer you behave yourself and not climb all over the furniture in joy or all over people in welcome, do it anyway. Some will draw back from you in fear or disgust. [...].
Some people will not like it if you take a sniff at everything to see what it is. And for heaven's sake, no lying on your back with your feet up in the air. Bad girl. Bad wolf. Bad dog. Right? Wrong. Go ahead. Enjoy yourself."
"Like wolf pups, women need a similar initiation, one which teaches that the inner and outer worlds are not always happy-go-lucky places. Many women do not even have the basic teaching about predators that a wolf mother gives her pups, such us: if it's threatening and bigger than you, flee; if it's weaker, see what you want to do; if it's sick, leave it alone; if it has quills, poison, fangs or razor claws, back up and go in the other direction; if it smells nice but is wrapped around metal jaws, walk on by."
