Although I respect Caroline Myss work tremendously, I found this very difficult to follow. This presentation is a lecture and the author is demonstrating to the audience using illustrated visual charts. These representations are not described in any detail to allow the listener to grasp the point being made. For instance, the author refers to a wheel, which is important to the discussion, but doesn't describe it or explain what is within its bands for the point she is making. Also, the author points out related elements/differences that are said, "here" and "here," or makes comparisons to "this and this." This title would do better as a printed book with illustrations because there are not many reference points.

I have heard so many good things about Carolyn Myss. Unfortuntly I didn't hear a whole lot during this particular workshop. And that is really what it is, it is a workshop on the full content of "Finding Your Sacred Contract." Not having read the book, I felt like I really missed the "meat" of the book. Dr. Myss briefly touches or skips over completely quite a bit of the core principles of her teachings. For the workshop I suspect that is fine, the folks there have paid the ticket price to reinforce what they ahve alreay read/studied. Not always the case with the listener. One of the reviewers said that this is a great introduction to her work. I would have to say that it might be a lovely compliment to her work but I don't think it does justice as an introduction.
During the workshop Dr. Myss uses visuals to communicate to her audience. To the listener, that is about as helpful as beauty contest over the radio.
I will say that the listen was interesting and entertaining. The pace was fast. I will purchase the physical book.

Would you consider the audio edition of Finding Your Sacred Contract to be better than the print version?
Another one of Ms Myss' master pieces, easy listening, thought provoking and jargon free language. Once again Ms Myss demonstrates how well she knows her subject and the years she has spent researching her area of expertise. She weaves her way through what some might consider to be a dense and boring subject with the wizardry of a magician. Not for a moment is the listener/reader bored or uninterested and this is due to knowledge of human and spiritual behaviour/development combined with her skilled use of language. The reader can recognise the child, the vampire, the king or queen in themselves and others, this book is a must for those who seek to discover why they are here and why they do what they do. I would advise if you can afford it get the audio book as well as the printed book in order to listen to it while travelling to and from work. I find that having the audio book enables me to reflect on what I had previously read.

Knowing the basic archetypes aside the others and being aware when they show up is empowering. I can stop them and direct my energy elsewhere that would serve me better.
