Publisher's Summary

Encoded within your body, teaches Caroline Myss, is an energy system linking you directly to the world's great spiritual traditions. Through it, you have direct access to the divine energy that seamlessly connects all life. On Anatomy of the Spirit, Myss offers a stunning picture of the human body's hidden energetic structures, while revealing its precise spiritual code and relationship to the sacred energy of creation.

Our most revered wisdom traditions, including Judaism, Christianity, and Hinduism, hold in common essential teachings about seven specific levels of spiritual development, the stages of power in life. These seven great truths also grace the human body as an energetic system, a spiritual compass pointing the way to the divine. By honoring this inborn code, you can learn to see the symbolic blocks within your energy centers and their correlations with your health, relationships, and spiritual development.

Richly interwoven with research, examples, and self-diagnostic guidelines, Anatomy of the Spirit will take you to the heart of the spiritual life and beyond.

It is OK.

They were some areas of this narrative that I found interesting and that were congruent to my internal beliefs. Although I did find some other areas a little difficult to recognise. For myself or was ok.

Extraordinary in its profoundness and beauty

It has been a long time if I could recall that a book had such an overwhelming effect on me. The sophisticated narrative, the information it provides, the comforting warmth of the author’s voice all made for a very enjoyable listening. I shall listen to this book again and again.

WARNING: THIS IS NOT AN AUDIOBOOK!

What did you love best about Anatomy of the Spirit?

It is a very good two-hour speech.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Anatomy of the Spirit?

It's all memorable, but it should be renamed andhave different cover art.

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

This is not an audiobook. It is a speech. I'm upset that the title and the cover art are identical to the book. Audible.com and the publisher are decieving customers. Caveat emptor!

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

This is NOT the book "Anatomy of the Spirit." I would have bought this speech, but I was looking for the audio format of the book. Not happy.

Any additional comments?

I gave this a poor rating because the product is deceiving.

Awesome seminar-sound quality biggest drawback

Carolyn Myss is awesome in this beginner level explaining our bodies, chakras and how physical reflects emotional. The only problem I had was the sound quality with the lower level of 2 not allowing her words to be clear and sometimes not understandable at all. This is an excellent start to helping you understand that there is "stuff" in our lives that we must let go and how to discern how our physical dis-ease is reflective of it. Even if you have heard it before from others, her insight is much deeper.

Not the book being read

I was hoping this would be a reading of Anatomy of the Spirit. Instead it was more like an interview/workshop with Carolyn, good information, not nearly as much information as the actual book.

More a sermon, than an audio book

What would have made Anatomy of the Spirit better?

I was surprised to find that this was not a reading of the book, but rather a recorded seminar on the subject of the book by the author. I was disappointed, as I wanted to hear a reading of the actual book, which I am physically reading and thought that the audio version would help the reinforce the information.

How could the performance have been better?

I did not enjoy the author's "preachy" tone. I just wanted to hear a reading of the book, not feel like I was attending a sermon at church. Her dramatic pauses and repeating of sentences for emphasis were too much for me. It became too distracting. The information is good, so I am just sticking to reading the book.

Not an audiobook

Would you try another book from Caroline Myss and/or Caroline Myss?

I enjoy her books

Would you ever listen to anything by Caroline Myss again?

No, this was not an audio book, it was her talking about the same subjects in the book

How could the performance have been better?

poor audio quality

Any additional comments?

don't make the same mistake I did, I bought it to listen while reading the book... and it doesn't match up.

Connections of our Spirit - Belief Systems

This is a very expansive talk relating emotional wellness and spirituality using 3 different "religious" platforms. It crosses 3 different belief systems: Catholic Christianity, Jewish-Kabbalah, and Buddhism/Hinduism. We are now reading the book. If this interests you, you may just want to buy the book, however the teaching that you get from this recording is outstanding. I am on my third time listening to it.
Peace...

Inspiring and Deep

I read "Anatomy of the Spirit" a few years ago and found much meaning in it then. I have since been guided from time to time to pick it up and again found the help and support that was needed. In this live presentation, however, I feel C.M. personally explores in even greater depth the material in her book. She brings the concepts to life always bringing them back to and framing them within the question, "What does consciousness mean?" I love this audio! I have listened to it over and over and continue, each time, to be moved and inspired by it.

This is one of those books that you learn something new from each time you listen. I loved this book and I recommend it for anyone who enjoys reading about spiritual topics.

Myss is a no nonsense lady!

This format is a great way to digest the information in the book. This is a great format and understanding of the spirit and chakras throughout the different reigious traditions.

This Audio is NOT the actual Book but..........

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

I would always recommend anything from Caroline as she is a fantastic teacher and has so much wisdom to impart about us and our planet called earth school.

What did you like best about this story?

Caroline helps us to glimpse into why we are here on this planet through so many life times and how best to understand ourselves and others but most of all because her teachings resonate with me completely.

What about Caroline Myss’s performance did you like?

I enjoy her speaking tone, it is firm yet compassionate - authoritative but gentle, which enables one to listen, explore, contemplate and interact. Her teachings help us step outside our comfort zone, to check the waters, so to speak, but feeling supported and secure at all times.

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

Always, but this audio is only just over 2 hours so it is possible.

Any additional comments?

My comments were going to be completely negative because this audio book is NOT THE ACTUAL BOOK ITS SELF, which would be classed as false advertising! would it not?
I was so looking forward to listening to the original book and is what I thought I had spent my credit on!!
Instead it is a workshop teaching and Audible should make this clear in their description.
BUT having said that this audio is very life enhancing (as all of her work) and worth listening to.
My question to Audible is " Do you actually have the original book as an audio book please" Thank you.

She brings her book to life

I've read the book over many years but hearing her talk about it's contents is magical and inspiring. The vibration in her voice, the tone, the pace, bring the contents to life. I look forward to re-listening for the sheer pleasure of it.

Fascinating listen

and a must for those either on a spiritual journey, looking for conscious enlightenment, or just curious about our energetic being. Sprinkled with humour, this is a fun listen.
