In fact, it is the life that mystics have chosen throughout history, and only one thing is required: the willingness to completely surrender to divine instruction. Now Caroline Myss and Dr. Estes - two of the country's leading intuitives and bestselling authors - are together for the first time on audio with Intuition and the Mystical Life.

Used to be a great reader, now i'm aspiring to be a great listener as well.
I was reluctant to get the book due to the somewhat negative reviews, but my passion to hear the two ladies over took, and I regret NOT buying the book. In fact, for me it was perfect timing. The two ladies are awesome, they have beautiful poetry going back and forth between them while they talked about women intuition. I absolutely love this material. Already listened to it, three times in fact. I recommend it. And I think the presentation transcends nationality and religion, as it speaks to the soul as well as the mind.
Ivory Tower Mysticism?
I like both Myss, and Pinkola-Estes; however togther.. not so much.
I felt like I was listening in on a mutual admiration love fest, and mysticism was secondary. I expected this book to have more substance, and relevence to the average person but it came across as cliquish.
"Intuition for well off women who were raised by perfect parents"
Both women went to Catholic school, neither are First Nations, and because *they* were not abused, are completely dismissive of the atrocities that occured within the auspices of
the Catholic Church.
I expected more from them.
This book has become my FAVORITE of ALL time!! Heartwarming, inspirational, educational, and so full of knowledge. This book has helped me to understand several things about myself, that I have struggled with, and even fought with myself about, denied myself of, and at times have beaten myself up about. I no longer have to search for answers that I have been wanting and needing to find my entire life.. Thank you both for the warmth that exudes from your bodies and minds that it seems so effortless, your voices are both so soothing and melt words, like butter used to make the bread, in the final story..
