Publisher's Summary

This audiobook is a powerful program that will give you a deeply personal, revelatory experience of your soul. What is required is that you "enter your castle" and explore with great intent the contents of your "seven mansions" and their many rooms. You'll be introduced to a new spiritual renaissance as Caroline Myss explains the nature of mysticism and its experiences; what it means to be called into mystical service; and how to discover your unique gifts, have an authentic experience of the sacred, become a channel for grace, and more.

This richly meaningful audio experience will help you express your highest potential with grace, and explore a spiritual life that is as deeply directed within as it is toward the world.

Critic Reviews

"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)

This is not the Audiobook . . .

Instead, it is a recording of Caroline talking about what I believe is the contents of her new book. She is often strident in tone. I believe the reason for this tone is she is trying to reach and ground many folks who are seeking knowledge, but are motivated for the wrong reasons. If you can listen through the repetition, the strident, lecturing tone, there are some real gems in this 'speech.' In particular, the last 35 minutes I will replay again and again for myself. I'll have to watch carefully in the future to distinguish between 'speech' and 'audiobook' when I select recordings from Audible.com.

Loved it...

This is the third audio course I have listened to by Myss. If you liked Energy Anatomy and the Language of Archetypes then this will be your next installment. I feel like I have been following along with Myss' as she developes her own deepening understanding and insights on the journey and challenges for those of us who feel like a monk without a monestary.

One of Caroline's Absolute Best

This wonderful audio program (and the book of the same title that inspired it) should be called "Keys to the Kingdom", because that's really what it is. A profoundly moving and potentially life-changing spiritual teaching...how anyone can find it lacking in substance or get hung up on Caroline's passionate delivery is utterly beyond me. This is deep, challenging material, not the usual New Age fluff that has infected so much of our contemporary spiritual culture. Yes, Caroline's interpretation of St. Teresa's brilliant work is inclusive and not wedded to religious dogma, but that's a positive aspect of this program, not a negative one. The insights of the world's great mystics -- regardless of spiritual tradition -- belong to all of humanity, and Caroline has helped to share some of this holy wisdom with us in this amazing program.

Excellent, as usual

I love her tone - it is full of conviction, power and awe. I do not find her strident or judgmental, but instead inspiring and urging people to come to a deeper understanding of life and God, and the mystics. Yes, she does speak with conviction (and is sometimes quite humorous!), and rightly so - this is an excellent examination of ourselves, with very practical and specific suggestions on how to navigate the internal spiritual pathways with grace and humility. She addresses the problems of narcissism in this culture, and shines a light of insight into parts of ourselves we might not be ready or willing to face. I thoroughly enjoyed this, and will listen to it multiple times.

THE BEST LESSONS FOR THE SERIOUS SOUL

If you could sum up Entering the Castle in three words, what would they be?

How to be real in the eyes of the Divine. The only journey worth taking.

What other book might you compare Entering the Castle to and why?

These lessons are beyond compare. This should be mandatory study for anyone who is still breathing. Sublime and Humbling.

Which character – as performed by Caroline Myss – was your favorite?

Theresa and my own soul.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

I wept a lot and I smiled when flooded with Grace.

Any additional comments?

God Bless you Dr. Myss... and thank you so much again and again.

Once in a lifetime books

This is one of those books that I just know will be read over and over again. It captured my interest right away, took me along a path like a big sister leading the way...into places so vast, so incredible...and back again. This book is a gift to mankind, certainly. I'm humbled with awe and gratitude.

Classic Carolyn

Carolyn Myss is a force of nature, a force of spirit really. I've read a number of her books and listened to a few of her radio shows. This program is spot on for those looking for a "blind spot" on their awakening journey. In a review on amazon someone described Carolyn as strident, I like that. She's harsh, intense, and unbending on her vision to deliver the goods even if it means carving out the dark corners where you're not really excited to look. In that, she can come across as angry at times. For me, I chose to look past what that triggered in me and really lean into the value this recording offers, which is a lot. I'm on my third listening now and looking forward to more.

Exceptional!!!

This books calls to you only when you are ready for it. Caroline Myss is serious about preparing you for a life of Grace and a deep connection with the Divine.

Phenomenal! Direct truth that aids self-reflection

Unless you've got your teeth, you may want to pass on this steak. Professor Myss confronts the issues hindering our soul's growth, with a take no prisoners attitude. Mainly, these issues are caused by us and our refusal to progress, or progress only when it is conveniently profitable for us. Myss exposes and explores honestly without judgmental compartmentalizing or confabulation, as we often do. Basically we we want to keep our training wheels and Myss highlights this awkwardness, in spite of current world norms.

Not the actual book!

Be aware that this is a lecture based on the author's book. I found her analysis of Teresa's writings insightful and inspirational. However, I did find her tone a bit judgmental; as I work my way through The Interior Castle I am finding that Teresa was far more instructional and compassionate. I would definitely recommend this - however, it is not good auto listening since many of the author's instructions involve closed eyes!

Definitely a different way to look deep inside.

I found this approach to such a full and beautiful new way of life is so close that I can taste it. With the no quibble whit and teaching of Caroline Myss, (now 1 of my favourite author's,) this is an impressive way to look deeply into oneself with care, consideration and love.
Truly inspirational!

Exquisite Introduction to Mysticism

This audio found me in a most profound way but it has been the perfect next step on my journey. Caroline draws you away from contemporary spirituality and onto that ever deepening path to God. Thank you.....

A modern mystic

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

I would be careful who I recommended this book to. It wouldn't suit everyone. Could be a bit advanced for some, and I'd certainly be cautious recommending it to those not interested in spirituality.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Entering the Castle?

The exercises in 'walking you in to the sacred spaces' are very powerful. I found they went very deep.

What about Caroline Myss’s performance did you like?

Totally authentic. And doesn't pull any punches.

Any additional comments?

I've now read a few books by this author. I think she's a modern mystic and committed to the discovery of truth. I would definitely listen to more and would go to see her if it were possible.
