Why People Don't Heal: Overcoming the Hidden Blocks to Wellness
by Caroline Myss 
Caroline Myss (Biography)
|Caroline grew up in the Chicago area, with her parents, two siblings, and close extended family. Raised a Catholic, she attended Mother Guerin High School. After graduating from St. Mary of the Woods College in Indiana, Caroline returned to the Chicago area to pursue a career in journalism. As a freelance writer, she attended a seminar of Elisabeth Kubler-Ross and was thrown into a "crisis of meaning." Inspired, she attended Mundelein College and received a Masters Degree in theology. Heading east, she started the Stillpoint Publishing Company in New Hampshire, where she acknowledged her medical intuitive abilities for the first time. "I had all the ambition in the world to be a publisher," she says, "and all the talent to be a medical intuitive." She started working with holistic doctors, co-authored The Creation of Health with Dr. Norman Shealy, began creating audiotapes, and lectured around the world. |
In 1996, Caroline's book Anatomy of the Spirit was published, and became a New York Times best-seller. A year later, she wrote Why People Don't Heal and How They Can, which also became a best-seller, followed three years later by Sacred Contracts, her third consecutive New York Times best-seller. She is currently at work on a new book about the Sacred Contract of the United States.
