    • Elizabeth Lesser, Author of Broken Open, and Co-Host Oprah's Soul-Series radio
      "Anyone who has ever tried to write about the spiritual journey knows how hard it is to find words that are big yet humble enough, serious yet light enough, full of drama and awe yet also stripped down and naked. This little book pulls it off. Jeff Brown has a most marvelous way with words--you think you're reading a joke, and it turns into a profound realization. Or you're following a complex thought to completion and suddenly it blossoms into a song and dance. I love learning about life and truth and love and purpose through the wizardry of Jeff's words. I think you will too."
    • Oriah Mountain Dreamer, Bestselling author of The Invitation
      "Jeff Brown stirs the soulful imagination with words that encourage, challenge and remind us what we are and why we are here. His aphorisms- soulshaping nuggets for the journey- come from the heart of his experience. Enjoy!"
    • Katherine Woodward Thomas, bestselling author of Calling in "The One" and co-leader of the Feminine Power Global Community
      "With great wisdom, depth, humor and warmth, Jeff Brown's brilliant offering pierces through the veil of pretense, and brings us to our knees before the refreshing alter of authenticity. His musings manage to offer both an elevated, delightful and invigorating perspective as well as gift us with a grounded, solid pathway home to the most true and tender parts of ourselves. A heartwarming and heart-opening read, this beautiful little piece of art rekindles an almost childlike faith in the possibilities present, while reminding us to do the very real work to actualize them."
    • Philip Shepherd author of New Self, New World
      "This book is fabulous- provocative, encouraging, and blazing with a clear-eyed truth that bows to no icons, only to the sweet, clear song of reality itself. There are enough sparks of wisdom in this book to ignite a blaze in the soul. Exhilarating, compassionate, in-sightful, these truth-soundings will vibrate in your being long after you have put them down. This is the kind of provocative companionship I cherish."

      "Soulshaping does an EXCELLENT job of demonstrating how we can listen to and follow our soul's guidance in the midst of life."
    • Seane Corn
      International Yoga Instructor and Spiritual Activist
      "Soulshaping is a beautiful story of one mans spiritual journey that reveals the inspiring, yet often humbling, path of growth and self-transformation. Jeff offers us a raw, honest and humorous glimpse into the exploration of self, while also imploring us to celebrate the opening of the heart and the awakening of the soul- no matter where we are directed, what is revealed, or who shows up. I Highly recommend this book."
    • Tama J. Kieves Best-Selling Author of "This Time I Dance! Creating the Work You Love (How One Harvard Lawyer Left It All to Have It All!)"
      "This book is role call for the soul. Jeff Brown is the kind of writer that invites you to swim in gasoline and then provides a match. This is no self-help book. THIS IS A SUMMONS FROM THE MOUNTAIN TOP AND FROM THE TRENCHES. I am so grateful for Jeff Brown's journey, his absolute genius in writing, and the journey we are all on at this time."

The Soulshaping Institute Economic Philosophy

At the heart of Soulshaping Institute is the belief that every individual came into this life with a sacred purpose at the heart of their birth. We are not random concentrations of stardust, nor are we accidental tourists. We are divinely inspired, purposeful, and essential to this dance of sacred imagination. Although the ultimate romance is with your own soul, it is our experiences together that give birth to the essential lessons. Every soul-scripture is a buried treasure, essential to the advancement of the collective soul. If we get off the dance floor, we postpone others’ lessons too. Each and every one of us must rise into our fullness for the collective to actualize its magnificence.

From this perspective, it is essential that every soul is granted an opportunity to heal their wounds and actualize their sacred purpose, no matter their economic circumstances. In a world where we have elevated the tools of material expansion- egoic armour, economic power, adaptations and disguise- to a place of inhumane stature, we have lost sight of our authentic, interconnected nature. Our emphasis on material expansion was supposed to meet our basic needs and bring us together. It was not supposed to create an imbalanced reality, one where the small few that have economic power can explore their purpose at will, while most of humanity is confined to survivalism as a way of being. This is sheer madness. We have to shift this now, before it’s too late. We have to shift from a localized perspective to a world-centric framework of perception. Not every man for himself, but every man for humanity.

With this in heart, Soulshaping Institute will be a ‘Pay what you can’ Institute. Each course that we develop will have a set price for those who can afford to pay it, and lower payment options for those who are economically challenged. All I ask is that you pay what you can truly afford, so that we will be able to create more opportunities for scholarship for those who cannot pay at all. If you click on the course pay link you will see the price options. In addition, those who wish to pay a higher figure are welcome to pay it over time, beginning with the minimum payment figure on the above link and then making additional payments as funds become available. We will trust you on this, and the system will send you the entire course when the first payment is made. For payment purposes, you will see a link to ‘Payments’ (using the DONATE button below) so you can come back when funds become available and make payments toward the total you committed to paying. For those who wish to pay for a course by email transfer, you can send any details to and the course will be emailed to you from there. For those who wish to provide payment by mail, send to Jeff Brown PO Box 64, Acton, Ontario, Canada L7J-2M2. Be sure to include your email address and name in the package so the course can be emailed to you. For those who simply cannot afford to pay anything at all, please write me at

In addition, those who wish to gift a course to others can do so one of two ways: (1) simply include the email address of the person they are gifting on the payment form and the course will be automatically sent their way; or (2) if you prefer to have the course sent to an anonymous person in need, simply email me at the above address after you have paid for the course on-line (or make a note of it in any mail-out package) and I will send the course to someone who is economically challenged. Gift courses do not have to be paid at the highest rate. They can be paid at whatever rate you can reasonably afford as well.

It is an odd and ironic thing that until we find our sacred purpose, it is often difficult for us to flourish economically, but it is difficult to explore and identify our path when we cannot afford to study and explore pathways of possibility. It is often those with a profound path living inside of them who are having the most difficulty dealing with the economic world, because they cannot adapt to the inauthentic nature of the marketplace. I am endeavouring to create a structure that will be inclusive of all of humanity.

Blessings, Jeff

“It is often those with a profound path living inside of them who are having the most difficulty dealing with the economic world, because they cannot adapt to the inauthentic nature of the marketplace” or because SOME of us work in minimum wage jobs that afford us the opportunity to walk our path. Right now my path is with the elderly and I love every day of it. The rewards are greater than my finances.. 🙂
YOU are such an inspiration!!!!!!

Hi Jeff,

I love your idea of the economic equality at the Soulshaping University. It adds to you inspiring me greatly and I do hope we can do some soul work together one day.

Love from Germany (for now),

I saw on FaceBook that you are allowing 6 people who can’t afford to take your course to have a scholarship. I would really like to be one of them. But I would like to donate $18 (kaballah- chai- live, love, life!). Can you help me take the course & explain to me a way that I can donate with my credit card? I do not have money right now, am living mostly on credit, but I want to heal & find a way to teach & write & so become self-supporting again. I am disabled by PTSD and other things (temporarily, I claim!) due to past abuse, & injuries. But I am a contributing member of society & will make good use of this teaching… With love,

Hi Jeff, I follow your FB postings daily and am always inspired. I would so much love to participate in this journey, but with very similar circumstances as Lori Maher {SSDI} for various reasons, the majority of my meager monthly income goes towards medical expenses. I am wondering if I can make a small donation, however, I won’t be able to do this until the 3rd Weds of this month when I get paid.

Please advise,

Thank you,

Thank you, Jeff, for making this possible and for appreciating that those of us who are challenged financially are likely to benefit greatly from your course. I always like to do what I can to help others and hope that this might, somehow, ‘balance’ things out if I take part in your course without paying the full fees. Thank you, again, for understanding.

Why do your words resonate so strongly with me yet the idea of doing this course absolutely petrifies me? Is fear the path?

Wow – love your investment in inclusiveness. Truly models for all of us the msge you are looking to share and move forward. I’m not in a position to pay full amount, but will continue to contribute (and I expect exceed) the cost of the course over the following months.

Your qualified experience as a wounded healer inspires, but it is your gift to speak God 101 that I find intriguingly awakening! I look forward to each and every posting on FB and wait with much anticipation to downloading your courses when income allows in the seemingly long next 2 weeks!

I just finished “Soulshaping” and am wildly intrigued. The path I am walking is so similar to the one you walked (your story resonated LOUDLY). I have a high paying/high stress job & most days I’m just not sure it is my true path. And I want badly to find that path, my sacred purpose & live a more authentic life. I’m hopng that your course is right for me, but I’m still not sure…
