Book Description

The Unmothered Child in World Myth and Story - The pain of abandonment, both literal and metaphorical, can cast a shadow on our entire experience. Warming the Stone Child investigates the abandoned-child archetype in world myths and cultures to find clues about the process of healing the unmothered child within us all. Using myths, fairy tales, and Jungian theory, Dr. Estés melds many sources into a brilliant examination of the orphan figure through the ages. Collapsing behavior and inferiority complexes are indications that a person may have suffered preadolescent abandonment. These people are also intuitive, adaptable, quickly attached, and courageous. Above all, the abandoned child spends a lifetime in search of the lost part of the self that was hidden away and now lies buried deep in the unconscious. Another classic session with the author of Women Who Run With the Wolves.
