Some amazing insights

I found Transforming Trauma to be an amazing book. Caroline Myss presents the first and last chapters, while James Finley talks for the main part of the presentation. They both gave me some wonderful insights through their own unique ways of presenting.

I find Caroline Myss isn't always the easiest person to listen to, mostly because she says things that I may not always want to hear even though they ring true. She's definitely someone that tells it how it is, however after listening to a few of her presentations now, I've started to comprehend where she's coming from and gleaned some amazing insights from her.

I found James Finley's presentation to be very gentle, though his words were very deep and profound. Listening to his life, experiences and insight brought about in me a profound respect for him.

Both he and Caroline's insight have opened me up to looking at not only my own experiences, but also life in a different and more profound way, which for me really has been a way of transforming my traumas.

The last 8 mins of this audio sums it up

I listened to this audio over a number of weeks, two different speakers and to be honest I didn't quite understand until it got to the last 8 mins which explains why the book is called what it is.

Life-altering.....

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.

High Spiritual Truths articulated with astonishing

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

High Spiritual Truths articulated with astonishing clarity.

If like myself, you've been listening or reading Eckhart Tolle and Caroline Myss (wonderful spiritual teachers that they are!), you'll know there's many common threads weaving throughout both their works, but with astonishing clarity, James Finley manages to express these same truths and more, with such a sincere heart and with such a brilliantly intelligent choice of words, you get it like never before - you really do 'evolve' with each listening!

Mr. Finley has raised his consciousness to a level where he has become extraordinarily adept at using his mind to translate that non-languaged experience of being, Soul communications, into plain English, well, more like plain-poetry, if you get my meaning! Because what he says, is like the experience of reading poetry, but unlike poetry, there's very little ambiguity.

It's a tremendous pleasure to have the ‘unlanguageable’ experience of spiritual truth, somehow brought down into words, so you can find the help you want (and need!) for your own spiritual work to progress.

High levels of understanding you get in flashes, not thoughts, flashes of truth you don’t have to turn back into words to know that you just had your consciousness raised. Where your heart floods with the awe that comes with understanding, and the understanding that you just evolved! And you can never go back to the way you were! Wonderful!

I'm so grateful for this wonderful audio book! And I am so grateful for the effort Caroline and James have made in their lives to grasp these truths and pass them on in a way where many many people get the benefit of their very hard work.
What a great blessing for all that get the chance to listen to this... what a blessing.

5 stars for Finley

none for Myss

James Finley's audio programs are among my favorites -- and this more personal exploration of trauma in a spiritual healing context is equally excellent. Whether you seek "healing" or more of Finley's well-digested spiritual insight or both, his 5 hours of this program are well worth the download.

While I have in the past gotten something out of Myss's books, there's nothing new here - in fact, I found both her content (because it repeats what she usually says) and especially her delivery annoying. I don't like her speaking style at her best, and this is the worst I've heard her.

That said, the download is worth it for Finley. His calm, measured, organized delivery may not appeal to those who like Myss's circular off-the-cuff new agey style, however.

Finley's section (the five middle hours of 8)are worth replaying many times. This is a man who is not an industry, producing many books and audio porgrams, but when he speaks, it's worth listening, and more than once.

The way religion SHOULD be taught

When "goodness" is not rewarded by God...where do we find a " reasonable" answer to unwanted hardship?
Carolyn Myss brings beautiful clarity to what REAL faith is. I have listened to this twice and will probably start again. This amazing woman could retire. Instead, Myss's passion calls her to share, travel and continue to teach. Download and savor.

All things serve us in life, yes even trauma!

Carolyn give us a remarkable insight into trauma, how it is a normal part of life and how all of us will suffer trauma at some time in our lives. Whilst supporting mainstream counseling Carolyn gives us reasonings as to why counseling can often leave us needing more. Her unique methodology challenges the old school methods by taking us to a new level of awareness of how trauma can catapult us into an evolutionary transformation that will change your life forever. Carolyn's passion for what she teaches can at times sound a little harsh however it's the strength of her conviction that makes this ideology so successful.

Life can be trauma for each of us

Would you consider the audio edition of Transforming Trauma to be better than the print version?

Much better than reading is the intelligence and great kindness of James Findley. Myss is characteristically 'in your face', but the grace of her honesty is compelling and captivating.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Transforming Trauma?

The steps as laid out by Findley provide serious steps for serious seekers.

Which character – as performed by Caroline Myss and James Finley – was your favorite?

n/a

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

I have been pursuing the steps and appreciate the wisdom they seem to pull from that deeper place inside. I was hesitant at first to purchase, did not know of Findley, and do not have a direct trauma experience. As an RN and a counselor, I have been witness more than traumatized. I love the understanding that has come as I explore the gift of the sublime difficulty of life overall as trauma....

A Treasure Map so that you may find your true Self

Profoundly moving in depth and clarity. I now have a new understanding. I appreciate the insight, and clear path laid out, to use trauma so it no longer uses me.

An Absolute Gem

I can't say enough good things about this book. It gives you the framework of healing, and the actual how-to that one needs to do on their path towards healing. One should always be wary that healing does not mean that the scars will go. Those scars need to be embraced and transcended. Never identified with as defining who we are. For me it is about how you make those scars work for you. This is not a one-time listen. It is a process, no doubt. One needs to be patient. But one that is worth it.
The authors are amazing. Personally i can't be but bias to Caroline no matter how she may sound.
Mr. Finley has such pleasant delivery, and heart-touching story. He maintains the generous and kind tone while sharing despite his painful experience. I felt pain for him, and all those who suffer such wounds. But for some reason, the pain i felt was not the type to cause me to curse humanity, but rather the sort that will open the heart and bring its kindness towards others.
