From the Author
I've heard from readers whose lives and perceptions have changed having read I met my Soul in a Coffee Shop, and perhaps a little shocked that this was even on the horizon. I've also been told this book has become a trusted friend and the desire to revisit and reread is not uncommon.
I'm not surprised for I know this change is certain. I also know that you were being thought of as this book was written - perhaps this is why you feel the connection with it. Yes, I mean you my friend - the You who is reading this now...
Wrapped up within my personal story of my childless womb, confrontation with God (uncertain of whatever or whoever God was), and meeting my soul of course, is a subtle but deeply inherent natural cycle of change. This change happens at a rate that you are ready for. You need do nothing to experience this other than to give yourself permission to see things differently. This book does not give you something that you don't already have. This book gives you, You.
So are you my reader? My reader is not someone who needs or wants to be proven right. My reader is not someone who believes that any one holy scripture, inspired text, religion or god is truer than any other. My reader joins me in the coffee shop where we come together as a community. We share our joy and pain; our surprises and disappointments; and we try to make some sense of it all.
