Description

This is our Book Club episode where we discuss a chapter from our current book choice: Women Who Run With the Wolves by Clarissa Pinkola Estes. In this episode, we discuss chapter 5 “Hunting: When the heart is a lonely hunter”.

Podcast Episode Summary:

This chapter is about understanding committed love, not as something where only pleasure is allowed, only good times, only increase, but where the Life-Death-Life cycle is honored. It is about understanding there are times of closeness, connection, and plenty and also times where you feel farther apart or where aspects of your relationship need to be released so something new can come into being.

In this reading Dr. Estes offers the story of "Skeleton Woman", and she analyzes how this story represents the phases of love in long term relationships. In the episode, Emma interviews Caitlin about her relationship, and Caitlin tells us personal stories about how each of the phases of love have been represented in her marriage.

We would love to know:

  • How does the theme of this chapter help you live with a full heart and a free voice?
  • What is one quote from this chapter that stood out to you that you would like to explore more?
  • What is one nugget you want to take away with you?
