Editorial Reviews

Review

"Soulshaping does an excellent job of demonstrating how we can listen to and follow our soul’s guidance in the midst of life."
–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...

About the Author

Born in Toronto, Canada, Jeff Brown did all the things he was supposed to do to become successful in the eyes of the world. 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. As part of his journey, Brown surrendered to his confusion and explored many possible paths. He studied Bioenergetics and did session work with cofounder Alexander Lowen. He practiced as a body-centered psychotherapist. He completed an MA in Psychology at Saybrook Graduate School in San Francisco and cofounded the Open Heart Gang, a benevolent gang with a heartfelt intention. He developed his student business and became a successful entrepreneur. The most important thing Brown did, however, was the inner work. 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), he found his authentic face and embraced the call to write Soulshaping. Although he resisted it at first, he soon realized that honoring the call was his best defense against sleeplessness. If he wrote, he slept. If he didn't, he lay awake all night. This is the nature of a calling. Brown currently lives in Toronto, Canada. --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.

Born in Toronto, Canada, 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. He apprenticed with top criminal lawyer Eddie Greenspan. 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.

As part of his journey, Brown surrendered to his confusion and explored many possible paths. He studied Bioenergetics and did session work with co-founder Alexander Lowen. He practiced as a body-centered psychotherapist. He completed an MA in Psychology at Saybrook Graduate School in San Francisco and co-founded the Open Heart Gang, a benevolent gang with a heartfelt intention. He started his own business and became a successful entrepreneur.

The most important thing Brown did, however, was the inner work. 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), he found his authentic face and embraced the call to write Soulshaping. Although he resisted it at first, he soon realized that honoring the call was his best defense against sleeplessness. If he wrote, he slept. If he didn't, he lay awake all night. This is in the nature of a calling.

Brown self-published the first edition of Soulshaping in December 2007. Called 'Soulshaping: Adventures in Self-Creation', the book was sold on a street level by a homeless man in Toronto and met with a tremendous response. It was picked up by North Atlantic Books soon thereafter and a beautiful new edition, distributed by Random House, entered bookstores in August 2009. Now named 'Soulshaping: A Journey of Self-Creation', this edition includes a new preface written by Brown that speaks to the grass roots energy that moved the book into the world so quickly, validating his own intuition about the book's connective and heartfelt nature.

After writing a series of inspirations for ABC'S 'Good Morning America' in early, 2010, and appearing on Fox News.com and dozens of radio shows, Brown wrote the viral blog 'Apologies to the Divine Feminine (from a warrior in transition)' that autumn, catapulting him to a greater degree of notoriety, particularly in social media. Soon thereafter, he released his first film- Karmageddon- an award winning spiritual documentary that highlights his journey with spiritual teacher Bhagavan Das. Also featuring profound interviews with 'Be Here Now' author Ram Dass, yogis Seane Corn and David Life, and chanters Wah, Deva Premal and Miten, Karmageddon is a courageous, self-honest, unforgettable film about spirituality, integrity, and emotional healing.

Jeff's second book- Ascending with Both Feet on the Ground- was published in October, 2012. Strongly endorsed by Oprah Soul Series Radio host Elizabeth Lesser and best-selling author's Oriah Mountain Dreamer and Katherine Woodward Thomas, "Ascending" is a collection of some of Jeff's most popular spiritual graffiti--quotes, soul-bytes and aphorisms frequently shared in social media.

His third book- Love It Forward- was published on Valentine's Day, 2014. In this second book of spiritual graffiti, Love It Forward includes a number of Jeff's most popular and profound love and relationship quotes. Endorsed by best-selling authors Carolyn Myss, Andrew Harvey and CNN'S Father Edward Beck, this beautiful book also includes a series of inspirations that Jeff wrote for ABC's Good Morning America and is a reflection of his new movement, also called 'Love It Forward'.

Jeff's 4th book, a beautiful love story called 'An Uncommon Bond' was published May 1, 2015 and quickly became a best-seller. It is an unforgettable, higher consciousness love story that takes the reader through a broad range of ecstatic and painful experiences as the couple struggles to find their way through complicated emotional terrain. A remarkable book, 'An Uncommon Bond' reminds us of our own longing for great love and provides a template for the work we have to do in order to develop a truly conscious relationship.

His 5th book- Spiritual Graffiti- was published November 15, 2015. And, on February 14 2017, a book that he wrote the Forward for- 'Evolutionary Love Relationships' by Andrew Harvey and Chris Saade- was published.

Jeff is also the owner of Enrealment Press and Soulshaping Institute. He is currently living in Canada with his wife, poet Susan Frybort, and working on a book that hearticulates his perspective on a spiritual life.
