Vasalisa / 2011
Inspired by the legend The Doll in Her Pocket: Vasalisa the Wise…
in “Women Who Run With the Wolves” by Clarissa Pinkola Estes, Ph.D.
"The Vasalisa story is told in Russian, Romania, Yugoslavia, Poland and throughout the Baltic countries. / Vasalisa is a story of handing down the blessing on women’s power of intuition from mother to daughter, from one generation to the next. This great power, intuition, is composed of lightning-fast inner seeing, inner hearing, inner sensing and inner knowing. / To grasp such a tale, we understand that all its components represent a single woman’s psyche. So, all aspects of the story belong to a single psyche undergoing an initiatory process.”
