Soulshaping: A Journey of Self-Creation Kindle Edition
An engaging, inspirational memoir that takes readers on a soul-searching journey toward heart-consciousness and spiritual authenticity
Ever since childhood, Jeff Brown did all the things he was supposed to do to become successful in the eyes of the world. He was on the Dean’s Honor List as an undergraduate. He won the Law and Medicine prize in law school and apprenticed with a top criminal lawyer. It had been Brown’s lifelong dream to practice criminal law and search for the truth in the courtroom.
But then, on the verge of opening a law practice, he heard a little voice inside telling him to stop, just stop. With great difficulty, he honored this voice and began a heartfelt quest for the truth that lived within him. Although he didn’t realize it at the time, Brown was actually questing for his innate image, the essential being that he came into this lifetime to embody. He was searching for his authentic face.
By going inside and connecting his spirituality with his emotional life, he learned essential lessons. By learning to surrender to the "School of Heart Knocks"—the school of life—the found his authentic face and embraced the call to write.
Soulshaping is an inspiring memoir for anyone who has heard a whisper of something truer calling out to them amid the distractions of modern life. Jeff’s dramatic and often funny story takes readers through remarkably human experiences—emotional, physical, and economic—as he vividly recounts his journey to discover his soul’s purpose. A work of courageous self-creation, Soulshaping reminds us that we are all truly connected, that our seemingly isolated struggles are actually part of the shared human challenge to live a life that is heart-centered and soul-driven.
–Ram Dass, spiritual teacher and author of Be Here Now
"I often refer to the dictionary at the end of this wonderful book to put new words to sacred experiences, fleeting understandings, and the bigger mysteries that seekers have pondered throughout history. The words are like bridges between my little self and my vaster consciousness that is free from fear and open to peace."
—Elizabeth Lesser, author of Broken Open: How Difficult Times Can Help Us Grow and cofounder of the Omega Institute
"This book is a role call for the soul. Jeff Brown is the kind of writer who invites you to swim in gasoline and then provides a match. This is no self-help book. This is a summons from the mountaintop and from the trenches. I am so grateful for Brown’s journey and his absolute genius in writing."
—Tama J. Kieves, best-selling author of This Time I Dance! Creating the Work You Love
"Spiritual erotica! Jeff Brown lays down his soul on these pages for us to see ourselves. In so doing, he demonstrates a rare vulnerability, a wicked sense of humor, and a deeply personal insight into the human condition."
—Kathryn Beet, master yoga practitioner and owner of Yoga Space, Toronto
"Jeff Brown takes readers on a journey seeking to find his inner self. It is a search for self-fulfillment, a field guide for life, and a quest for the meaning of life."
—Eddie Greenspan, QC, criminal lawyer and earnest defender of the presumption of innocence
"Soulshaping is a beautiful story of one man’s spiritual journey that reveals the inspiring, yet often humbling, path of growth and self-transformation. Jeff Brown offers us a raw, honest, and humorous glimpse into the exploration of self, while also imploring us to celebrate the opening of the hea...
