The Celestine Prophecy comes to light at a time when the world deeply needs to hear its words. A gripping story of adventure and discovery, it is also a guide that has the power to crystallize perceptions of why one is where they are in life, and to provide a new energy and optimism to head toward a brighter tomorrow.

"A fast-paced adventure." (Publishers Weekly)
If this was shown as a sci-fi it would have been more believable. Too many looong ramblings about what makes up these 'insights' which are just out there. Lou Diamond Philips was however enjoyable to listen to, and helped me get to the end of what otherwise was just not that good.
I really don't want to finish listening to Lou Diamond Phillips which is crazy! But the subject seems to be just dragging on.
No but I would if the story is good.
I may go back and listen to more and see if it gets any better....
This book was written as a story to present and introduce concepts that should be pursued and developed within each and every one of us if we are to mature and to work with others at a mature level.
Do not let the fact that this was written as a story to present this information deter you from learning about what is presented herein. Most of the Bible is presented in story fashion as well, yet it does not detract from the message that God is presenting to us.
The content and ideas behind this book are very interesting. The story really draws you in and is riveting at many points. Has many interesting spiritual aspects and made me feel more aware of how I interact with my environment.
The story takes place in Peru, has lots of interesting characters, and beautiful imagery and really unfolds as you learn more and more about these ancient understandings of life.
I listened to this book in one day. I was interested, but the story never went anywhere. I expected so much more.
Great story and way to share such an enriching way to look and the world as we learn to better understand energy and the roles we can play in using this energy. I really love the spiritual psychology that the book presents and highlights so many of my own views and experiences. Thank you!
I now wish there were more parameters to rate this book by because objectively the dramatic story, I feel, is quite mediocre; however, I had never been less prepared to read such a spiritually momentous book.
Though framed in a fictional narrative, the story cuts straight to the core of the reader forcing them to evaluate their actions and interactions between themselves, others, and the world around them.
I finished the book on a stair master and felt powerfully compelled to leave a review so I apologize if it's a tad sloppy!
I highly recommend you read this book.
I am thoroughly touched by the insights and have related much of this amazing story to that my my own belief system. Acquiring the title for this book when I did has truly set in my mind we do have a greater control on life as we live and will be even more mindful in traveling my journey from here.... WOW
I could not stop listening to this book. I've been meaning to read it for years and now only wish I had indeed read it sooner. Enlightening and entertaining. I want to listen again because I feel I will hear something I missed the first time. LOVE IT!
The whole time I was hoping thus book was based on a true story! A little bit disappointed it wasn't, but the teaching are still incredible and should be applied to everyday life!
