If you long to know your soul’s purpose, Soul Vows is an ideal place to begin. Your soul vows describe how you choose to walk this earth, in every moment of every day. They are how you receive and spread grace. As you live your soul vows, you become a fertile container in which your purpose can take root and prosper.
With her characteristic blend of personal story, love of paradox, expansive inquiry into the heart of diverse spiritual traditions, and confidence in the power of deep soul writing to elicit personal divine guidance, Janet Conner leads us through a groundbreaking application of the ancient chakra system to discover our own unique soul vows.
Your soul vows are your personal path to the peak experiences seekers want most: authenticity, integrity, wholeness, and the vibrant presence of the Divine. Your soul vows are custom designed; no two paths look the same. Soul vows are a living construct of a whole and holy divine in you that build collectively into the expression of the divine in us, through us, and as us. Surely this is how we create the kingdom of heaven on earth.
