We know that hope is a powerful ally in challenging times - but can we consciously "practice" hope and learn to rely on it as a constant guide? In Navigating Hope, Caroline Myss helps us to turn life's difficulties into a voyage of transformation. With her trademark blend of down-to-earth practicality and inspired mysticism, she offers an "itinerary for the soul" to help us thrive of uncertainty and transition.

For anyone who has always wondered why life keeps throwing lemons at them in this book Ms Myss enables the reader/listener to learn how to make lemonade. It is clear that the author has experienced many challenges and detours during her own journey but has learned to view these negative experiences/events as learning opportunities for her soul's growth. This book is essential to those of us who are making our own spiritual journey; it offers advice, guidance and insights into areas of spiritual development that we would not have explored without Ms Myss' providing the direction we needed to travel in to increase our awareness.
I liked Ms Myss' delivery of the information - the listener felt included and respected by the teacher; she was humorous, truthful and not at all patronising. Ms Myss ensures that the audience is awake, alert and participating in the session and she does this with her wit and use of story telling which evokes images that triggers memories and responses from the past that the reader./listener had forgotten
I'm a big fan of Caroline Myss, in particular her Sacred Contracts and Medical Intuition guidance which is incredibly inspiring and beneficial. But I'm sorry, I really struggled with this audio book. I've now attempted it twice and given up after about 50 minutes. Rather than being about hope, it seems to be Caroline on her soap box in an incredibly bad mood, and she is having a rant. Perhaps the second half of the audio is more upbeat and gets to the 'hope' part, but I'm not prepared to get to that part :-(
"Very good and current if you like truth"
I found this an excellent recording on just what the title says. I am in the process of listening to it a second time (and I will listen to it several more times I am sure) as it has helped me think differently about how I might manage myself during a time of major upheaval in my life.
I am someone who has benefited a great deal from listening to Caroline Myss' recordings. I find her candor refreshing and exactly what I need to help me confront aspects of myself that I would often times like to ignore or at least pretend are not as debilitating as they are. Having written that, I am often amazed that people looking for wisdom, life knowledge, and truth allow things like a person's speaking style or voice intonation to distract them from the greater prize of words, thoughts, and ideas that could very well change their lives. I have been learning how to not let packaging dictate content to me and this has helped me expose myself to important life-changing things which would have alluded me in the past. I hope this is helpful to someone considering purchasing this recording.
Caroline has a way of making the most
Anything that Caroline writes is excellent.
Yes. Just as good.
"terrible & agressive"
This is a very negative book whereby Myss is quite judgemental and aggressive in her approach to "get over it", then she leads into a very childish and extended sermon about sharing skills in tough times. I have most of her books & have enjoyed them, this one is appalling. Dont waste your money.
I found myself exhausted after listening to this--but not in a good way. Myss is passionate, but her tone is so strident it's almost abusive. She rants in a bullying and judgmental way--seeming to berate her audience.
"Hope and community"
yes this was really good, and very difficult. Truth to the core I am hopeful for humanity
"incredible as always"
very moving, practical khammam lots of useful information khammam looking forward to how my life is going to change as I apply this and all of Carolyn Myss teaching
"A must hear"
I hit the play button and didn't want to pause. So beautifully spoken. It was like she was sitting across from me speaking to me directly. I love the audience chuckling.
You always get something from Carolyn.
Inspiring and interesting to listen to. It made me think about my life a lot.
I already listened to it twice and will do it again.. :)
Caroline Myss made me realise a lot about myself.. so I love the book..
Loved them all..
Now, I can make the difference... Now I know better!
Great speech ...
