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 readers 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.
