In this nine-session curriculum, Dr. Myss reviews her results with thousands of people in search of healing, and identifies the one power that can literally change the future: your power of choice. Each choice you make can bring you into partnership with the divine, Dr. Myss teaches, in a sacred process of co-creation. To open to the divine mystery, and work with it as your partner in creation, Dr. Myss identifies four central archetypes and seven principles of co-creation. Join Dr. Myss as she explores how to work with these principles, and apply them to the most important areas of your life: money, relationships, career, creativity, and spirituality.
Advanced Energy Anatomy guides you to a new understanding of how archetypes and other unconscious forces relate to problems of health, addiction, self-esteem, and victimhood, while opening you to partnership with the divine power that makes everything in life possible.

"So well organized and intimately expressed that repeated listening and sharing with friends will be hard to resist." (AudioFile)
This book is a thought-provoking must read for anyone on the spiritual path. I've often thought how much easier life would be if I'd been born with a user's manual and this book comes close. Although Advanced Energy Anatomy is the text book of the spiritual classroom, the material is anything but dry. The author lectures in a soothing voice and imparts humour as well as wisdom. As I listened to Advanced Energy Anatomy, I had many moments of epiphany. How much better can you get than a book that makes you strive to be a better person, to serve yourself as well as others and tells you exactly how to do it. The author speaks plainly and leaves out the riddles and puzzles so many other authors confuse us with. There is nothing vague about the wisdom Ms. Myss imparts. It's a straightforward listen with plenty of no-nonsense advice on how to co-create your own reality in a positive, self-empowering way and how to help empower others without losing yourself in the process. The book covers spiritual approaches to work, relationships, creativity and much more. Think of the time you spend listening as an investment in your spiritual wealth.
I highly recommend both the Energy Anatomy and Advanced Energy Anatomy lecture series. I will provide this same commentary for both series.
In Energy Anatomy, Caroline reviews the seven chakras and describes our development as we progress thru them. This is content that is presented in her book Anatomy of the Spirit. I can see parallels between this content and adult development theory. As a coach this information is helpful context and provides a framework in working with my clients.
In this lecture series, she goes beyond the Anatomy of the Spirit book to discuss practical ways to apply the information she presents, including suggestions on how to think about illness and spiritual crisis.
In Advanced Energy Anatomy, she continues and expands the conversation to help us understand how to be "mystics without monasteries". She also describes the 8th and 9th chakras, which are rarely discussed and are consistent with the I AM teachings. She provides a wonderful transition from our current thinking on religion and spirituality to the deeper, mystical works in Hinduism, Buddhism, Judaism and Christianity. Her comments are supported by the work of the scholars who are working on the Nag Hamadi, Dead Sea Scrolls and other lost gospels. She provides broader context for many religious traditions and her interpretations make sense. She has a PhD in Theology from which she draws much of her content, and also integrates her personal experience and stories of others she has worked with as a medical intuitive.
She is feisty and humble, wise, passionate and entertaining. I enjoy her books and I especially enjoy her audio recordings. I hope you enjoy them as well!
Caroline Myss has always had mixed reviews, as she tends to "shuffle around" when she speaks. Either people (such as I) are able to relate to her blunt manner, or are turned off by it. I found this selection to be surprisingly clear and organized for a Myss book, but was even more surprised at how I felt that she was speaking directly to ME. I literally listened to each segment 15 times, as I tried to soak in every word and apply it to my life. I LOVED this selection, and rate it as my favorite Myss title (of which I have many).
Advanced energy anatomy is full of great insight into the practical methods of co-creation. Myss tends to focus heavily on how our beliefs dictate our reality. She specifically takes a deep look at our relationships to money, to other people, and to the divine and the role those relationships have in forming our lives. If you like Carolyn Myss, you'll definitely love this audiobook. As usual, it's insightful. It's gritty. It's got a lot of interesting anecdotes. My favorite part of the audiobook is the discussion on work vs vocation. Myss spends a lot of time discussing why we feel called to do things other than what we're doing now and how we can build a successful life around our interior desires. The series incorporates a lot of her previous work, such as the four core archetypes. If you've never been exposed to Myss, I recommend you start with something a little more accessible. Invisible Acts of Power, Defy Gravity, and Anatomy of the Spirit are the three best introductory pieces to her work in my opinion.
There are a lot of reasons why one wouldn't relate to this presentation. One might be dogmatically attached to one particular version of religious "truth." Or one might not be aware of all things (or anything) spiritual, and still be too grounded in the physical. But I don't expect that many people thinking about trying this recording fall into those categories. If you don't, and if you're thinking of trying to open up to perspectives that value our individual manifestations of Spirit, then I highly recommend this recording.
There have been as many ways to try to divide up and explain spirituality as there have been religions and cultures in history. This presents one more way to look at things, one more way to categorize the energies and intuitions we all have in a way that helps us understand how they work. In that sense, this isn't the ONE answer to everything that's wrong with our lives, any more than any set of ideas can be the ONE answer for everyone. But I have no doubt that this is a set of concepts, ideas, descriptions, archtypes, etc. that provides very real understanding and if used along with one's personal sense of connectedness to Spirit can smooth rough waters and give paths to finding out what we're here for.
It's a tool, like any other, and it won't change your life unless you use it. But is it worth checking out? Is it worth the price? Definitely.

This is one of the best audiobooks I've heard. I made me realize that I need to look at my intetions once more.
I can really recommend this audiobook from my heart to yours.
It's amazing how Carolyn provides the model for spiritual advancement. I am very skeptical about all these hocus-pocus stuff as there are too many books written at superficial level. Also, too many spiritual teachings are discussed in abstract and impractical.
More importantly, you may seriously consider taking the learning into practice. As an NLP practitioner, corporate trainer, consultant, I can see how Carolyn's work is truly vital in today's personal and professional world.
Understanding how thought energy moves through the peronal chakra centers is wonderful info everyone should be privy to. The four archetypes she discusses are very helpful and interesting as they apply to every human on this planet. She uses God to explain much of what I think we do via law of attraction with our own energy but all in all... This is a great audio!! For a more cleaner message though, I would recommend Abraham Hicks which is on audio or YouTube for free.
Ms Myss does a fantastic job tutoring her listeners disseminating fascinating wisdom and experiences. I felt so close to her in this journey, her words reached me before they were spoken.
Maybe "The Map"
Hard to say - they were all great!
The Chakras, the Archetypes...the Intuition I have been tapping into all reflect her teaching. I intend to internalize her teachings as closely as I can while exploring the potential of my life.
She's fantastic and now a great influence on this "cradle Catholic" gone astray. I will definitely be listening to more and wishing I could meet Ms Myss in person!
Caroline Myss always tends to come across as authentic no matter what the case. There is something about her attitude and conviction which fuels her words. They penetrate deep if you are ready accept the responsibility with the ultimate knowledge. Caroline's knowledge and openness to all make her hard to pinpoint any egoistical acceptance seeking done by most who claim to have a proven method to healing.
This is definitely one of the best 'enlightenment' series type books I've listened to or read! Extremely insightful and Soooooo true - if you choose to actually listen and admit to yourself what you truly are and how you behave naturally!
It explains everything - how and why we behave in the manner which we do, how and why things happen to us the way they do. And it's all up to us in the end!
"Nothing short of incredible."
This book answers the questions no one else has. They are the questions we all ask ourselves, and spend the rest of our lives looking for the answers.
I cannot recommend this book enough.
"Well worth listening to again and again"
I wanted to understand what is energy anatomy - more to understand myself and our interaction within and without. The narration by Caroline Myss brought much needed clarity to Me.
"Advanced Energy Anatomy"
I love her. I love her voice. She is so confident and persuasive and therefore very credible.
"At last, a book for the healers themselves!"
Interesting for anyone actually working as a spiritual healer, rather than just for the general public. Thank you! Clear and insightful.
