Banyen's Description: 

Dear brave souls, I warmly invite you to come be at the fireside with me and the Dangerous Old Woman and the Power of the Crone. Who is the crone? She is the most dangerous, the most radical, the most revolutionary woman in existence. Whether in fairy tales or in consensual reality, the old one goes where she wants to and she acts as she wishes; she lives as she chooses. And this is all as it should be. And no one can stop her. Nor ought they try.

Entering the terrain of wisdom occurs at any age. We sometimes step, sometimes stumble, and other times are pulled into the territory of the Crone when the need for a deeper, larger understanding of our most meaningful paths in life can no longer be denied, and when the gifts that are hidden in our challenges must be brought forth.

On The Power of the Crone, Dr. Estés presents volume two of the Dangerous Old Woman, with six sessions of original stories, psychological commentary, and blessings. Join her to meet Las Cacareas (The Old Cacklers), La Misteria (The Seer), La Arbolaria (The Spellbreaker), and the wisdom-wielding Crone in many more of her guises.

If you weep, the Crone will move closer to you. Laugh, and she wants to hear the joke. Dance, and she wants to dance with you and in you. She has help for the hurt and for the one poisoned by bitterness. She can pull the thorn from the breast, and tattoo your scars with flowering boughs.

This is the power of the Crone, ready to assist each of us to “fulfill the callings of the souls on this earth—with verve, with style, with critical insights, with wisdom, and with love.”

Stories, poems, and blessings include:

The Littlest Giantess

The Orcharder Who Tried to Deform the Trees

Backwoods Woman… When the Old Woman Comes to Shake You Awake

Don’t Make Creator Too Small

The 13 Phases of the Cycle of Life-Death-Life
