Your life has a thread. It tells where you've been and what you've done. It shows when one incident led to another. It explains how things turned out this way. But your life has a deeper pattern. This one links the people, places and events that matter to you. It shows how early experiences connect with later ones. It shows why incidents have significance and meaning. This deeper narrative is your soul story. It lets you see themes and patterns in your life. It helps you work out who you are... and where you want to be. Soul Works draws on profound insights from psychology and anthropology. It combines these with a wide range of applied tools and techniques. Blending spiritual insight with practical work, this is a handbook for creating, and living, your own life.
