What the Critics Say

"Using St. Teresa of Ávila's metaphor of the 'interior castle' as a template, Myss challenges readers to get in touch with their own souls and shows how they can then lead deeper, more joyous lives. Every chapter is packed with meditations that help to either clean out the detritus that prevents spiritual growth or prepare for a mystical meeting with God. Interspersed are supportive stories of those who have gone before on the path....the material clearly springs from a deeply personal place and every page rings with the passion and intensity of someone who has finally found what she was seeking." (Publishers Weekly)

    "Something we all need to hear"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Occasionally we need to be reminded of realities of life. Although the truth sometimes hurts, it will set you free. Listing to Caroline Myss I can't help but feel a sense of renewal. this series has been life changing for me in a beautiful way. She doesn't pull any punches and truly "says it like it is" I highly recommend this series.


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

    The intensity of her voice creates a sense of the importance of her message.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I wanted to listen to this in one sitting, however, small doses allowed me to reflect and journal my thoughts.


    Any additional comments?

    An amazing series which will lead you on an incredible journey to yourself.

    "Inspiration Marred By Scolding"

    The best thing about this book is that it brings to life the mystical teachings of St. Teresa of Avila. Myss penetrates Teresa's castle of the soul and interprets it for the 21st century. Teresa's teachings and metaphors are beautiful and inspirational.

    Unfortunately, the experience is marred by Myss' scolding tone. She is speaking to a live audience (apparently), which is usually energizing. But in this case, she seems to assume her audience is composed of give-me-a-quick-fix sinners. So, unfortunately, she winds up sounding like a nagging Joan Rivers -- without the humor.

    Old-school Catholicism does always seem to start every journey with sin and guilt and the need to embrace humility. As a rogue Catholic, I get it and can get passed it to the heart of Teresa's teaching. My Presbyterian friend, who was listening at the same time, could not.

    "What's up Hay House?"

    This audio book is about shadow work written by a woman with intense amounts of un-dealt-with shadow herself. She is very blame-oriented; she points fingers and seems to loathe the people she claims to be helping. I fear she is growing *more* shadow in her listeners by creating fear and guilt with her scolding, angry tone, therefore doing more harm than good. These are not healthy, lasting, motivators for change.

    If you think of the Law Of Attraction, when Myss is telling her listeners they are selfish, ungrateful, or lazy, she is creating her own world where people keeping showing up as selfish, ungrateful, and lazy. When you don't treat people well, when you disrespect them, or are spiteful towards them, you are not calling their best self forward. So I wouldn't be surprised if she attracts resentful, angry, people to her life. When you treat people as love and light, you are encouraging them to rise to their best. People are inherently good and they deserve to be treated that way. Furthermore real change will happen when people feel appreciated for where they are currently at, i.e.- from an integral understanding of our innate humanness- and when they are motivated by Love, not fear. Until she realizes people aren't "misbehaving" but are doing the best they can in their current way of living, her message will be lost on most people and shadows will keep growing, including Myss'.

    If you are someone who wants to work on your shadow, I'd recommend Genpo Roshi/Big Mind, Clarissa Pinkola Estes, or Colin Tipping's "Radical Forgiveness." Great stuff. I am giving the rating 2 stars as I can see Myss put a lot of work into this, and despite the way she treats her audience, I think she means well.

    "Arrogant!~"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    I used to love Carolyn Myss's books on audio. Now that I've taken a break and tried to listen again, I couldn't. If grace is all around us, as she says, then why not gather some of it up and put it where it belongs! A little humility would go a long way.

    "Absolutely HORRIBLE"

    I spent almost $30 to listen to this obviously mantally disturbed woman berate and shame me all the way through as much of it as I could stand. I am SURE that St. Theresa of Avila would never had said to people who were earnestly trying to learn from her "WHAT KIND OF SPIRITUAL PERSON ARE YOU?". For all of her obvious knowledge, Carolyn Myss comes across as the most arrogant, pompous, and ingratiating person I've ever encountered. PLEASE don't buy this. You'll regret it.
