What You Should Know
Caroline Myss (pronounced like “mace”) is professional mystic and medical intuitive, and the author of many books and four New York Times bestsellers. Myss gives many lectures and workshops on the topics of spirituality and mysticism. As a medical intuitive, Myss claims she can accurately diagnose the nature of any disease or illness of any person just by reading his or her field of energy, sometimes over the radio. She makes treatment recommendations and calls this “energy medicine.” She has been a guest on the Oprah Winfrey Show numerous times and hosted a television series called “The Journey with Caroline Myss” on Oxygen, which is co-owned by Winfrey.
Caroline Myss was raised as a Catholic in Chicago. She completed a Bachelor of Arts in journalism from St. Mary of the Woods College in Indiana. Soon after entering her journalistic career, Myss pursued a Master’s degree in theology from Mundelein College in Chicago. Myss claims to have a Ph.D. in “intuition and energy medicine”, but the degree was granted by Greenwich University, a correspondence school that is now closed and was never accredited.
In 2003, Myss founded the Caroline Myss Educational Institute along with Wisdom University, another non-accredited school. The Myss Institute offers studies in “spirituality and human consciousness research”, “archetypes” and “sacred contracts.” The website of the Myss Institute has many free audio and video files that visitors can watch that show Myss lecturing at workshops. Visitors may also purchase a “Personal Health Assessment” that scores your chakras by using an online program, or a “Personal Nutrition Provider” program that gives you a recommended food plan.

Norman Sheally, Archetype Cards, The Creation of Health: The Emotional, Psychological, and Spiritual Responses that Promote Health and Healing, with C.
