Clarissa Pinkola Estés

Clarissa Pinkola Estés, PhD is Mestiza Latina [Native American/ Mexica Spanish]. She grew up in the now vanished oral tradition of her immigrant, refugee families who could not read nor write, or did so haltingly, and for whom English was their third language overlying their ancient natal languages. Dr Estés is an internationally recognized scholar, Jungian psychoanalyst, post-trauma specialist, award-winning poet, and author of many books on the life of the soul including her international bestseller Women Who Run With the Wolves.
