Summary

Soulshaping is the inspiring memoir of an archetypal "male warrior" - a trial lawyer - who struggled to find his heart and a more authentic, soulful path. Rivetingly personal and profoundly universal, this book is for anyone who has heard a whisper of something truer calling out to them amid the distractions of modern life.

Jeff Brown's dramatic and often funny story takes listeners through remarkably human experiences - emotional, physical, and economic - as he vividly recounts his troubled childhood, his success in apprenticing with Canada's top criminal lawyer, and his ultimate decision to leave the law and begin an inner 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.

Both down-to-earth and magically mystical, Soulshaping will meet you where you live - and where you long to live.

Critic reviews

" 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)

you can tell it's been written over a long period

quite honestly a friend of mine recommended this book to me I found it enjoyable in the beginning and then ridiculously tedious towards the end and then suddenly he just comes out with all these different doctrines and philosophies as if to kind of summarize everything and hodgepodge what took people decades to come up with and research he slaps a label on it in a humdrum using corny puns. truthfully the addendum was probably better than the entire book. I enjoyed a few stories about his life but the philosophy and his actual use of the word warrior over and over again was a bit misleading and misguided... what is this guy know about being a warrior or a veteran calling himself a soldier just because he's going through some spiritual stuff fine for people who have never actually seen death in the battlefield keep placating it and use it. the other thing I hated about this book was the constant references to the retreats and the massages as being part of his warrior struggle LOL. I found some things insightful but other things he has no clue about. like I said fast forward to the addendum and you'll actually get some good wisdom out of it otherwise be prepared for a long drawn-out drama queen of a man.
