Listening to Caroline Myss's previous series on this subject entitled "Sacred Contracts" awakened my soul. I earnestly studied most of her works. I can't help but notice, however, that she has become increasingly cynical and condescending of human nature. I feel that I spend more time listening to her lecture those of us willing to learn and seeking growth about how little we know or can accomplish because of our inadequate courage. I realize that in all of her years as an intuitive and teacher she has encountered many individuals unwilling to act on the information she's offered, but I wish that she would have rather focused her energy on those ready and willing to learn and follow through. Although she still possesses the ability to stir her compassion and surprise us with insightful gems of her expansively wide perspective, far too often she pairs that surprise with a handful of cynical, rigid, and harsh opinions. I love her dearly as a fellow spirit and wish her well, but I think I'm done following her new work.
Taking a step back from the fire of her own experiences and resting a bit longer in the lovely compassion that has guided her work since her earliest days in intuitive energy would have allowed the message to come across with love rather than superiority and anger.
I wholeheartedly recommend her earlier recordings on archetypes. In this work, Caroline Myss contradicts many of her own earlier stated conclusions, but this time she offers no anecdotal or observed reasoning behind the complete contradictions. In "Sacred Contracts," for instance, she discussed archetypes existing in cycles of time and being replaced by new groups of archetypes. In this workshop, however she directly states that once you identify an archetype no effort or circumstance will alter the experience of that archetype for the duration of your lifetime. Whereas she previously offered a plethora of information to explain how she arrived at her theories on "Sacred Contacts," I'm inclined to believe she is frequently venting her anger and frustration at unfulfilled potential among many who've followed her work; or, more realistically, I believe she is railing against her frustration at her own unfulfilled desires.I can not state emphatically enough how much I adore and recommend the breadth of Ms. Myss's work. Since I first heard her in 1998, I've been blessed and pleasantly surprised by the turns she takes in translating her findings into living actions. The applications of her ideas and thoughts on using our energy creatively have literally transformed my life. For that reason, I can not recommend this seminar. I wouldn't want someone to expect this heavy-handed approach to sum up her talent, although she has always been notorious for her snarky style of wit. Please don't let the sentiment that pervades this seminar color your impression of her work as a whole.
