If you are feeling lost, or looking for answers and don’t know where to turn, this is the book for you. More than simply journal writing, Writing Down Your Soul is a profound process for psycho-spiritual growth: a method for connecting with a source of inner wisdom. This is more than theory: the connection between mind, body, and spirit has been scientifically substantiated and author Janet Conner draws from some of this research to explain how by consistently writing down our deepest thoughts, we too can activate the voice of inner wisdom that lives within each of us.
Conner writes from first-hand experience, having cultivated this soul-stirring process over a period of years in the wake of a tragic personal situation—and with life-changing results. She identifies four basic steps to writing down your soul: show up, open up, listen up, and follow up, and guides us through each step, giving specific examples and questions that walk us through the process of speaking with and listening to our own voice.
Writing Down Your Soul is a warm, inviting, and inspiring book that you won’t want to put down and that will rouse you to begin the conversation of your life.
