© and (P)Caroline Myss, 1996
While I found this an interesting listen, the more I went on, the more I found Myss to be less open-minded than one might expect of a person portraying herself as a guru. I particularly found her prejudices against body modification (in the less than drastic form of piercings) and against therapy to be dissuasive. I also felt that there were some contradictions in her preaching.That said, I listened through the whole thing and tried to remain open minded, and still gained some interesting thoughts and insights from the whole thing. Might be useful if you are interested in looking at your personal relationships in a different manner or deconstructing your own actions and thought process for introspection and insight.
Not necessarily. I'm hoping to eventually find a more relevant book as to what I'm looking for, but this wasn't all a bad read. It just wasn't what I was hoping for.
This reading was taken from a workshop (though she is the only one who speaks), and I do think that format helped it, as she has down her emphasis and you definitely get the feeling from this that she is speaking directly to people present with her, not to a microphone. Which is very appropriate to the subject matter. I also feel that having the author's voice gives you a more authentic understanding of how she feels about what she is saying on topics, and in some cases this does serve to demonstrate a negative attitude.
I found this title under "Buddhism," and although Myss makes mention of dharma philosophy, her teaching style has little hint of the compassion and respect key to Buddhism. For me, her urgings to "get over it" felt bossy rather than thoughtful. She may be a great medical psychic, but she's not an expert on world religions.
