The Language of Archetypes: Discover the Forces that Shape Your Destiny

Have you ever felt that your life was guided by larger forces? Unseen but very real energies that influence every direction your life takes? In her renowned work as a medical intuitive, Caroline Myss examined the patterns of hundreds of archetypes that exist in human consciousness, and found that each of us has a "sacred support team" of 12 primary archetypes. Once identified, these archetypes allow you to discover your highest purpose, what she calls your "Sacred Contract".

Publisher's Summary

Have you ever felt that your life was guided by larger forces? Unseen but very real energies that influence every direction your life takes? In her renowned work as a medical intuitive, Caroline Myss examined the patterns of hundreds of archetypes that exist in human consciousness, and found that each of us has a "sacred support team" of 12 primary archetypes. Once identified, these archetypes allow you to discover your highest purpose, what she calls your "Sacred Contract". Now, in The Language of Archetypes, this three-time New York Times best-selling author brings to life a "gallery of archetypes": her first complete training course on how to identify and work with the nine major archetypal families.

    "Can someone say "boring"????"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    Someone who likes an author to meander in stories about herself before getting to objective material.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    Maybe, a book that actually defines the personality types in an objective way.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Caroline Myss?

    Leonard Nimoy


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    No


    Any additional comments?

    This book was a big bore. I wanted to learn about the theory of archetypes - instead I just wasted my Audible credits.

    "Caroline Myss Rocks"
    What did you love best about The Language of Archetypes?

    Caroline Myss is a Master of dissecting who we are and addressing our calling in life. The Language of Archteypes fills in the missing pieces. Caroline's straight talking, down-to-earth way of embracing and expanding on a complex subject is at once powerful, and focussing.


    What other book might you compare The Language of Archetypes to and why?

    Haven't heard anything like it.

    "Boring"

    Much better writer than a speaker. This was a disappointment. I will try to return the book.

    I have a rather eclectic love of books. I know what I like and I tend not to be a severe critic. If I enjoyed it, it gets 4 or 5 stars.

    "I loved it!"

    This is not a book, it is a seminar that was taped. I really enjoyed the content and subject. It is not as structured as a book, but I think it is a great listen!

    "An absolute must!"

    Archetype is complex language to learn; it's verbal, physical, spiritual and emotional. It's all around you Caroline delivers the goods in her typically expert and comical way. What I love about this audiobook is that it's a recording of a lecture- so it's like getting a front row seat to one of her workshops, only you get to hear the subject over and over whenever you want to! I have shared this book with all of my friends and family and even the skeptics in my life got useful information out of it.

    I think that's what sets Caroline apart; she is not selling psychic anything. She's sharing her expertise on the different archetypes that exist within human nature- within you- within those around you. And then she teaches you the lessons from each archetype, the good and the parts that are challenging. This really forces you to be honest with yourself and identify your achetypal makeup. I think if you are looking to understand why you keep repeating certain lessons, why you always 'this..." and why you " never that..." you will come to appreciate the material Caroline shares. This is a handbook to understanding yourself and others, and more importantly how you can learn to relate and interact with them. Do yourself a favor and treat yourself to you.

    "Absolute waste!"
    What disappointed you about The Language of Archetypes?

    I hope my review helps even 1 person to avoid this book...I have listened to well over 100 audible books most in the personal growth genre and I can honestly say this is the most closed minded of any book I've read - and the irony is, she's trying to sell personal awareness and growth - unforuntately, it's the opposite. The author completely stereotypes everyone and basically says that you will stay the way you are forever and you're stuck within 12 archetypes - oh, and how does she come up with 12 - why "12" is an archetype itself, "12 apostles, 12 hours in the day"...uhm, yeah, last I checked there are 24 hours in a day...take a pass on this book and the author if you're even slightly looking for a spirtual jouney.

    "Rambling and Egotistical"

    I've made it through about 4 hours and somehow I will try to soldier through the rest because there are nuggets of great material. However, the main thing is that you get a social commentary along with the book and some rambling, that I do not believe is actually *in* the book. She comes off as arrogant and bitchy sometimes. Read some of the most helpful critical reviews at Amazon.com and you'll get the drift...

    "Very dissapointing"

    I have listened to Myss's other works and was excited about listening to this one. I was let down. In fact, I had to force myself to finish Part One but will not finish part two unless I have nothing else to do and am extraordinarily bored

    "listen to me"

    Just what the world needs, another person to stand up and say " I have the answers".
    Perhaps there is great wisdom in what she offers , I dont know. After 2 hours I heard , " listen to me" , I turned it off.
