Book Description

Aug. 26 1997
Building on wisdom from Hindu, Christian, and Kaballah traditions, this comprehensive guide to energy healing reveals the hidden stresses, beliefs, and attitudes that cause illness. 

Anatomy of the Spirit
is the boldest presentation to date of energy medicine by one of its premier practitioners, internationally acclaimed medical intuitive Caroline Myss, one of the "hottest new voices in the alternative health/spirituality scene" (Publishers Weekly). Based on fifteen years of research into energy medicine, Dr. Myss's work shows how every illness corresponds to a pattern of emotional and psychological stresses, beliefs, and attitudes that have influenced corresponding areas of the human body.

Anatomy of the Spirit also presents Dr. Myss's breakthrough model of the body's seven centers of spiritual and physical power, in which she synthesizes the ancient wisdom of three spiritual traditions-the Hindu chakras, the Christian sacraments, and the Kabbalah's Tree of Life-to demonstrate the seven stages through which everyone must pass in the search for higher consciousness and spiritual maturity. With this model, Dr. Myss shows how you can develop your own latent powers of intuition as you simultaneously cultivate your personal power and spiritual growth.

By teaching you to see your body and spirit in a new way, Anatomy of the Spirit provides you with the tools for spiritual maturity and physical wholeness that will change your life.

Product Description

From Amazon

What sets Anatomy of the Spirit apart is Carolyn Myss's ability to blend diverse religious and spiritual beliefs into a succinct discussion of health and human anatomy. For example, when describing the seven energy fields of the human body, she fuses Christian sacraments with Hindu chakras and the Kabbalah's Tree of Life. Fortunately, Myss is a skilled writer as well as researcher, able to ground her extensive spiritual and religious discussions by using real-life stories and a tight writing style. Those who are squeamish with the notion of biography affecting biology will find this book a struggle (in one chapter, Myss links pancreatic cancer with a man's refusal to unburden his life and start fulfilling his dreams). Many, however, hail Myss for creating a valuable contribution to the ongoing exploration of spirituality and health. --Gail Hudson

From Publishers Weekly

One of the hottest new voices in the alternative health/spirituality scene, Myss is a "medical intuitive" whose work with Dr. C. Norman Shealy resulted in their coauthored book, The Creation of Health. In this engaging volume, Myss describes our "spiritual anatomy" and how its dysfunctions affect the physical body. Going beyond the spirit/body connection, she presents a complete program for spiritual growth, drawing on concepts from three major religions. Linking the seven chakras of Hinduism to the seven Christian sacraments and the Jewish mystical Tree of Life, Myss details the struggles associated with each chakra and its correspondents. To Myss, our primary foundation, or first chakra, for example, corresponds to baptism and the mystical Jewish concept of Shekhinah. This chakra's energy, according to Myss, is concerned with our "tribe," be it our family, country or other group we identify with, and it activates our need for loyalty, honor and justice. Misplaced loyalties or conflicts will most likely manifest in the lower part of the body, in afflictions like lower back pain. The author intersperses her text with case studies and keeps her discussion close to real-life concerns. Her tone can be gratingly authoritative at times ("all human stress corresponds to a spiritual crisis"), and it's questionable whether the alleged correspondences are as firm as Myss posits. Still, there's wisdom here, in words that eschew New Age jargon and that make otherwise esoteric material accessible to a general readership. This book has breakout potential.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful clues to Spiritual development Sept. 4 2003
By A Customer
This book provides us with a wonderful outline of spiritual development. It explains the problems we may face in our spiritual development and how they are manifested as physical problems. I love how the author puts together the stages in christianity, judaism, and hinduism and illuminates us to the parellels she finds. I also love how she discusses the flow of spiritual energy and how it affects our physical health. If you'd like to read a fascinating book explaining this using a more rational (rather than intuitive) approach, read "The Ever-Transcending Spirit" by Toru Sato. It explains things like "spiritual energy" and "spiritual" development by relating it to many contemporary theories in Psychology. Both books are absolutely amazing!

2.0 out of 5 stars Anatomy of the Spirit: Nov. 27 2003
This book has such a promising beginning, with the most wonderful observation that "Your biography becomes your biology". A simple yet stunning summarisation of our cellular organism.
For the most part there are many wonderful insights, but the text is often rambling, ambiguous and endlessly repetitious.
The theory is very hard to understand, and there are many insignificant trite comments. Page 26 actually says that "If you are spiritually centered and call back your energy from negative beliefs you can eat cat food and still stay healthy"! This is obviously incorrect and a nutritionists nightmare.
One of the most interesting observations in the book is by another author, the neurobiologist Dr Candice Pert; who states that, "your mind is in every cell of your body". This kind of clear thinking and clarity would have been a welcome continuation of a book that has one of the most unresolved texts I have ever read.

3.0 out of 5 stars A Bit Too Complex! May 14 2003
This was a very complex book. I found myself rereading things as it had lost me along the way. I found the discussion of chakras and energy medicine very informative but again it was to such a complex level. It also discusses the practice of using Medical Intuitive as a way to maintain wellness before the illness starts or is presence. I think the content in this book is excellent but the complex manner it is a book you must reread several times before you grasp the entire content.

1.0 out of 5 stars Another addition to the mystical rip-off genre Nov. 22 2002
By A Customer
I agree with a previous review - this book is full of hyped promises but does not deliver on what it supposedly sets out to do, namely, show the reader how to become intuitive. But surprise, surprise, the author follows up with one new self-help book after another, and the readers keep buying as they keep trying to find the hidden secret. I find these tactics to be dishonest and self-serving. Another talented person whose original desire to help mankind has been overcome with greed.

This is the most interesting of her books for me as it really connects Western and Eastern paradigms around energetic medicine! I'm still looking for definitive course-wares around developing a practise as a medical intuitive.
