For anyone who has worked to overcome, but still can't get to the root. As someone who has worked to overcome post traumatic stress disorder, this book/lecture has been a gift. After 3 years of therapy and huge spiritual and emotional changes, this provided the tools to actually move forward instead of feeling like a failure for not being able to let go. Caroline Myss and James Finley are amazing.

Unlikely (but brilliant) pairing

Caroline Myss and James Finley couldn't be more dissimilar in their delivery -- Myss is edgy and off-the-cuff, Finley is gentle and deliberate -- but these two teachers compliment each other brilliantly in this program. Myss is a wonderful "big picture" teacher, and here she presents a macro-level view of trauma, using her well-developed critique of contemporary spirituality to explain why healing from trauma is primarily a mystical experience, not a rational, linear process that one can engineer through superficial New Age means. She then wisely hands the reins over to James Finley who proceeds to present a highly detailed, multifaceted spiritual road map for how to approach healing trauma through contemplative practice. (Be prepared to review this portion of the program several times -- the information is extremely complex and cannot possibly be absorbed in a single listen.) The program wraps up with final thoughts on trauma, mysticism, and healing from Myss.

So many people trash Caroline Myss because of her strident tone, but people have got to take into account the junk-food spiritual culture of our times and the delusional mindset of the majority of her audience. The New Age has perpetuated so many psychological and spiritual falsehoods over the last several decades that the ground has to be cleared for any kind of meaningful teaching to get through, and Myss does a fantastic job of this.
