Caroline Myss earned her B.A. in journalism, her M.A. in theology, and her Ph.D. in energy medicine. In 1982, she began working as a medical intuitive, one who sees illness in a patient's body by intuitive means. In 1994 she stopped giving such readings (which Harvard-trained neurosurgeon C. Norman Shealy estimated to be 93% accurate), opting instead to deliver her message to a wider audience through lectures and workshops. Her schedule is now booked two years in advance, and her workshops draw an average of 1,000 people each. In 1996, Harmony Books published Myss's book Anatomy of The Spirit, which continued to hit bestseller lists a year after publication. As Sounds True's bestselling audio author, Myss sells hundreds of audiotapes each week. In December 1997, PBS aired a nationwide show on Caroline and her work, titled Why People Don't Heal and How They Can.
