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.

    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!

    Story
    "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.

    "Interesting"
    Would you listen to The Language of Archetypes again? Why?

    Yes. I will listen to this one several times. There is a lot of ground covered.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Language of Archetypes?

    I really respect her insights on purpose. I don't have grounds to accept them, but I am happily lit to dig deeper! On the flip side... she comes across as one who thinks she knows everything, without properly expounding on source or reasoning.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    I really liked the parts about the archetypes that struck a cord for me, I am sure it would be irrelevant to anyone else. I like the call to continue being whatever we confirm ourselves to be rather than altering who we are, whether in the name of ego or misguided advancement.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I smiled.


    Any additional comments?

    This book/talk cannot stand on it's own. I could have used a meaty intro. She jumps directly into archetypal figures with little concept of their application, substance, or personal acquisition of knowledge. That being said, for all of the above reasons, I still found it an insightful and inspiring.

    "Beware of stereotyped -thinking!"
    Would you try another book from Caroline Myss and/or Caroline Myss?

    I did already and in my opinion her earlier works are the best


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    That there are far more archetypes than I'd have expected. The intro takes a bit long


    What does Caroline Myss bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Her way of speaking and talking about her personal life


    Do you think The Language of Archetypes needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    Definitely not, the danger of thinking in stereotypes is just too great.


    Any additional comments?

    The matching cards are a beautiful addon to the audio. Definitely worth the money!

    Any additional comments?

    I tried to get into this as I have read the Heroes Within and the Sacred Contract but the way Caroline delivers - I just found it tedious.

    "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.

    "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.
