Program Description

For decades spiritual and self-help literature has encouraged people to go within to heal old wounds, nourish egos and coddle one’s inner child.  Myss says, “I think we developed an idea that approaching God could be done any way we want; it doesn’t require prayer, reflection, or contemplation; we’ve substituted therapy for devotion.” She points out the intellect is not a spiritual practice.  In order to live a life of meaning we must go beyond a life of acquisitions and move into a life of devotion.  Her own path has taken her deeply into the world of Saint Teresa of Avila, the 16th Century Spanish Carmelite nun and mystic Saint, whose profound writings continue to have an impact on any serious seeker. Myss exhorts and inspires us to participate in the search for this ultimate spiritual reality as expressed by Teresa of Avila.  This exploration into the interior life is one of profound joy.


Caroline Myss has worked as a medical intuitive, one who sees illness in a patient’s body by intuitive means, and specialized in helping people understand the emotional, psychological, and physical reasons why their bodies develop illness.  In 2003 she founded the CMED Institute, an educational program that specializes in intensive classes on archetypes, personal power, mysticism, and sacred contracts.  She has appeared in two highly successful television programs: Why People Don’t Heal and How They Can, and Three Levels of Power and How to Use Them.  She’s the author of the New York Times bestselling books:
