Many of us have health coaches or aspire to improve our health. Myss addresses health as a return to mind , body , spirit. The misstep we have taken as a society has been to include mind, body and to simply ignore the spirit aspect of our overall health. A return to health must include all three, and Myss speaks clearly to this need.
There are numerous books on wellness, whole health and countless fabrications on getting fit , slim or eating right.( Dr. Andrew Weil stands out).. Few examine health as a construct of spirit and mind health and healing as well as Myss. In the 80's, the Yale surgeon Bernie Seigal wrote of love and miracles and health and his' I Can' cancer groups became foundational to wellness. In the 90's, author and cardiologist, Dean Ornish (Eat More , Weigh Less) was instrumental in returning our attention to the connection of health, creating community and emotional support. In this ever evolving topic of health, I can think of no one as fundamentally conscious of the complexities of responding to mind , body spirit than Myss and her writings on health and healing, and turning our attention to Grace.
A Return to Health
Myss continues to astound with her 'in your face' facility for awakening us to our deepest truths through her own words and insights, and through her enlightened choice of co speakers on the journey,
In a crowded genre, Singer offers a fresh approach, definitely worth a listen.
I teach meditation to men and women in recovery. Recovery from addictions is an ongoing battle for health and the perspective offered in the book is hugely helpful in the deep work my clients must do. The separation of heart and head is understood on multiple and complex levels, identification of the process of addiction and calling the soul back in is the primary message of the book and recovery. The book is a wonderful adjunct to the 12 step program.
This book is thoughtful and uniquely insightful, highly recommend.
Absolutely would recommend to a friend. This information is timely and further exploration and relevance of the Course in Miracles by the writer who most has untangled the words to extract the meaning we can each use and incorporate in to our troubled times and real lives.
The character is Williams and her experiences used to bring home and elucidate her points of understanding.
Marianne Williamson is an extraordinary and gifted writer and educator.
The mysteries and complexities of a human life are always informed by the spiritual, this brings uncompromised inner peace and optimism.
Another must read by Williamson, don't hesitate.
Prentice Mulford possessed a wisdom and insight that only a select few in history have found. With an educated and authoritarian precision; Mulford warns, teaches, provokes and ultimately cajoles the listener to view life as a serious and glorious decision.
I was never sure of the source of the wisdom the writer most surely possessed, but on second listen, could only conclude the writer had an inside tract to a divine connection.
An intriguing and very gifted performance by the reader who served as the voice of Mulford in a challenging and precise tone and quality.
I am a long time listener of Caroline Myss, Deepak Chopra, Ken Wilber, Adyashanti and those I believe to be the great thought provoking minds of this time. I have added this book to the collected wisdom and list this in the 'need to know' category.
This information is necessary and timely, provocative and somehow inherently right. I highly recommend a good listen and consideration of the whole of the information for just about any age or group.
Absolutely works for me to listen, less time and much more relevent to hear the author
Myss is an outstanding storyteller and does not use characters as much as real examples to illustrate her point.
Myss is the character
Myss challenges your beliefs and explores your greatest fears and life assumptions in depth, much as a profound teacher demands the best of your thinking and reasoning skills.
Much better than reading is the intelligence and great kindness of James Findley. Myss is characteristically 'in your face', but the grace of her honesty is compelling and captivating.
The steps as laid out by Findley provide serious steps for serious seekers.
I have been pursuing the steps and appreciate the wisdom they seem to pull from that deeper place inside. I was hesitant at first to purchase, did not know of Findley, and do not have a direct trauma experience. As an RN and a counselor, I have been witness more than traumatized. I love the understanding that has come as I explore the gift of the sublime difficulty of life overall as trauma....
