"A mesmerizing speaker...anyone interested in holistic healing or the power of the mind should check this out." (Boston Globe)
Carolyn Myss is awesome in this beginner level explaining our bodies, chakras and how physical reflects emotional. The only problem I had was the sound quality with the lower level of 2 not allowing her words to be clear and sometimes not understandable at all. This is an excellent start to helping you understand that there is "stuff" in our lives that we must let go and how to discern how our physical dis-ease is reflective of it. Even if you have heard it before from others, her insight is much deeper.
I read "Anatomy of the Spirit" a few years ago and found much meaning in it then. I have since been guided from time to time to pick it up and again found the help and support that was needed. In this live presentation, however, I feel C.M. personally explores in even greater depth the material in her book. She brings the concepts to life always bringing them back to and framing them within the question, "What does consciousness mean?" I love this audio! I have listened to it over and over and continue, each time, to be moved and inspired by it.
I was surprised to find that this was not a reading of the book, but rather a recorded seminar on the subject of the book by the author. I was disappointed, as I wanted to hear a reading of the actual book, which I am physically reading and thought that the audio version would help the reinforce the information.
I did not enjoy the author's "preachy" tone. I just wanted to hear a reading of the book, not feel like I was attending a sermon at church. Her dramatic pauses and repeating of sentences for emphasis were too much for me. It became too distracting. The information is good, so I am just sticking to reading the book.
This is a very expansive talk relating emotional wellness and spirituality using 3 different "religious" platforms. It crosses 3 different belief systems: Catholic Christianity, Jewish-Kabbalah, and Buddhism/Hinduism. We are now reading the book. If this interests you, you may just want to buy the book, however the teaching that you get from this recording is outstanding. I am on my third time listening to it.
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.
This is one of those books that you learn something new from each time you listen. I loved this book and I recommend it for anyone who enjoys reading about spiritual topics.
This format is a great way to digest the information in the book. This is a great format and understanding of the spirit and chakras throughout the different reigious traditions.
i enjoyed and will enjoy this book. I am a bit of a rebel so some of the language is too authoritian for me but the content is great. i am working to learn about chakra and engery in the body.
I've read this book many times now. It's rich with analogies to help the listener. I read it first without a clue what I was getting into. I then re-read it after other books and learning more about chakras. Then after learning Reiki (and becoming attuned as a reikimaster). As I move along, meditating , slowly inch by inch there's some progression here. I refer to this book as inspired writing by an author who's a giant gift into my life. When I listen to this author I'm transported (most accurate way I can put it). She makes me feel like I'm invited inside her mystery ship and get to go to the finest places. She humbles me, builds me up, gives me understanding, is definitely a muse (for me) and so I come back to here. My very first Caroline Myss book read. That which began a life I'd never have dreamt existed.
"This Audio is NOT the actual Book but.........."
I would always recommend anything from Caroline as she is a fantastic teacher and has so much wisdom to impart about us and our planet called earth school.
Caroline helps us to glimpse into why we are here on this planet through so many life times and how best to understand ourselves and others but most of all because her teachings resonate with me completely.
I enjoy her speaking tone, it is firm yet compassionate - authoritative but gentle, which enables one to listen, explore, contemplate and interact. Her teachings help us step outside our comfort zone, to check the waters, so to speak, but feeling supported and secure at all times.
Always, but this audio is only just over 2 hours so it is possible.
My comments were going to be completely negative because this audio book is NOT THE ACTUAL BOOK ITS SELF, which would be classed as false advertising! would it not?
I was so looking forward to listening to the original book and is what I thought I had spent my credit on!!
Instead it is a workshop teaching and Audible should make this clear in their description.
BUT having said that this audio is very life enhancing (as all of her work) and worth listening to.
My question to Audible is " Do you actually have the original book as an audio book please" Thank you.
