Publisher's Summary

Have you ever felt that your life was guided by larger forces? Unseen but very real energies that influence every direction your life takes? In her renowned work as a medical intuitive, Caroline Myss examined the patterns of hundreds of archetypes that exist in human consciousness, and found that each of us has a "sacred support team" of 12 primary archetypes. Once identified, these archetypes allow you to discover your highest purpose, what she calls your "Sacred Contract". Now, in The Language of Archetypes, this three-time New York Times best-selling author brings to life a "gallery of archetypes": her first complete training course on how to identify and work with the nine major archetypal families.

I found these lectures very informative as well as meditative! Sometimes while I listened I took notes... other times I danced. I shared the author's ideas with friends and family. She definately had an effect on me! I was somewhat familiar with Carl Jung's archetypes before listening to these CDs, so this all wasn't completely new material... it's just that the way the author presents her ideas is so practical, it really helped me to understand myself and everyone around me with more compassion and awareness. I also laughed more than a few times. Ms. Myss has such a matter-of-fact way of stating things... I couldn't help but laugh at some of my own deep-set belief patterns.

Overall, I was very impressed.

A truely awesome value, you NEED this book.

Ok, it is an audio book in original form, I know.
There are not allot of people that come along and can point you in the right direction, or more importantly, give you the tools to choose the right direction. Caroline Myss is both, depending on what you are looking for. Either way, I think everyone from teen to into their 70's should listen to this book. She teaches you to know yourself first, and then you can, if you choose, identify other people's Archetypes. Listen very carefully to her, know where the line is and what you are crossing when you do this, it is easy to misuse what she teaches you. If you use your knowledge as a weapon, well, just don't do it. What you become is the shadow-side of your own archetype. You don't want that.
One last note, I cannot finish this review before commenting on some of the others, sorry, it's just in me. I think some misunderstand her, either by choice or not. Don't mistake her coarseness at times for raw feeling, or for heaven's sake, DON'T take it personal. LISTEN..., that is all I can say.

Caroline Myss at her best

Highly recommended, as well as the theory behind each archetype, Caroline builds on what we already know with her point of view, client stories and her opinions. Yes she lectures us in this, she gets passionate and angry, and soft, but that's why we love her!!

Well worth a listen, in fact you might want to put it away after the first listen, and listen again a year later to pick up what you need to be reminded of!

Interesting but a lot to take in

As usual Myss is passionate about what she teaches, loads of info given but not always that indept with regards to individual archetypes, not sure it's been the best audio book I've heard by Caroline Myss in terms of helping self development. I would of liked to hear more about what to do if you are stuck with a certain archetype but I guess the volume of different ones meant there wasn't much room for more detailed advice. This is not to dismiss it, it's worth a listen if your into your archetypes.

Soul Provoking

This is a book I will revisit again and again as I explore my own archetypal patterns now and as they evolve
