The good news is that Joanne DiMaggio promises to show you a safe, reliable method of contacting your own personal source of wisdom, available on demand. The better news is that she delivers. Some things are easier done than said: Soul Writing shows you how it s done, and how you can do it. -- --Frank DeMarco, author of The Cosmic Internet
Soul Writing is a fascinating exploration of how to connect with each person's deep internal wisdom. For those who want to tap into inner guidance and the eternal quest for self-discovery, this is a clear, inspiring, and lucid explanation of exactly how to do it. After reading this book, it would be all but impossible to resist taking pen in hand and embarking on the journey of a lifetime . . . or better yet, the journey of multiple lifetimes. --Paul Rademacher, author of "A Spiritua Hitchhiker's Guide to the Universe" and Executive Director of The Monroe Institute
About the Author
Born and raised in Chicago, Illinois, Joanne DiMaggio has been actively involved with Edgar Cayce s Association for Research and Enlightenment (A.R.E.) since 1987. In 1990, she became one of the founding members of the A.R.E. Heartland Region. She moved to Charlottesville, Virginia in 1995 and became Coordinator for the A.R.E. Charlottesville area in 2008. Joanne earned her Masters in Transpersonal Studies degree through Atlantic University in Virginia Beach, Virginia in May 2010. Her culminating project (thesis) was on inspirational writing and served as the basis of her book, Soul Writing: Conversing With Your Higher Self. She also earned her Spiritual Mentor certification through Atlantic University. Joanne has given talks on the subject of inspirational writing to groups across the country. She has mentored a month-long online course on inspirational writing for A.R.E. and was a guest on Reflections the Wisdom of Edgar Cayce, an Internet radio program. In September 2010, she formed the first Atlantic University Alumni Association for which she was given the charter and named president in November 2010. In April 2011 she was honored at the 2011 Distance Education Training Council s annual conference as Atlantic University s Outstanding Graduate of the year. Joanne has been professionally pursuing past-life research and therapy for over 20 years. In October 1991 she founded PLEXUS (Past Life Exploration, Understanding and Sharing) in Naperville, IL and brought that organization to Charlottesville under the name Athanasy in 1995. She is a member of the International Association for Regression Research and Therapies, the National Association of Transpersonal Hypnotherapists and a graduate of the Eastern Institute of Hypnotherapy. Using inspirational writing, Joanne produced a small line of greeting cards called Spirit Song. The International Greeting Card Association cited one of those cards, What is Human is Immortal, for its creative excellence, choosing it as one of six worldwide finalists in the Sympathy category for its Annual LOUIE Awards. Her first book, Charlottesville: A Contemporary Portrait was published in March 2002.

I highly recommend it. A second book, using these same techniques to explore past life experiences is coming soon and I'm interested in that, too.
I think the author writes well, and tackles a difficult subject matter in a clear and concise manner. I use this book like a guide, and learned so much from reading it, including 'Prayer for Protection' and some cautionary advice. Soul Writing makes it clear that you are drawing upon yourself which is more mystical than one might think. The methods outlined will serve to allow you to tap into a wealth of creativity and imagination that you never knew you had!!
The book has a nice background into the author's life and how she has enjoyed writing since she was young. The author has researched the late Edgar Cayce's written psychic readings to elucidate the differences between soul writing and automatic writing with the latter being a sometimes problematic form of writing. Ms. DiMaggio offers insight into identifying the differences in the two forms of writing and protecting yourself while asking for guidance from your higher self or your soul. Moreover, the author also shares some of her experiences in using soul writing and some of the interesting responses that she acquired. These responses came from an altered state of mind so to speak, so they are not necessarily completely the author's opinions but put forth some really thought provoking insight into the questions that she was seeking clarity about. Joanne shares some personal stories and ways in which she has used soul writing that help the reader understand and have a better grasp of how using soul writing can be utilized by everyone.
The book describes how to use soul writing or inspired writing as an available, safe and reliable way to gain understanding about topics such as past-life experiences, and enhancing psychic abilities, or using it for specific life questions among other topics. Additionally, Joanne described the research project details that she did and the results that were found, while completing her Master's degree at Atlantic University wherein she designed a creative and service related experiment using soul writing.
I attended a lecture presented by Ms. DiMaggio in which she described first the process and then guided the audience to do some actual soul writing. I was amazed at the response that I wrote at that time and bought her book. After reading the book, I have used this process many times and have found the insight very comforting and discerning. I have since asked the author to come and present a lecture on Soul Writing for us at the Edgar Cayce Forum so that her method can be shared with others and they too can utilize the divine advice from within.
