Soul Food — A Guest Post by Author Carol Lowell

Me & Soul Food

Hey Friends!! It’s me Connie  — I’ve been sick, sick, sick, SICK for over a month now (hence why I’ve been pretty dang quiet here on the blog and over on social media). I’m still not quite feeling myself but I wanted to take a moment to introduce you to my student and friend — author Carol Lowell.

I had the great pleasure of working with Carol in my mentoring program IGNITE in 2015/16 where she worked diligently on her latest book Soul Food. I also had the awesome opportunity to paint with both Carol and her daughter Marlee at my first  Paint FEARLESS Mexico in 2017. 

Today Carol is taking over my blog to share about her book Soul Food.  I have a copy myself and absolutely love this book! I  feel it is a great companion — kind of like a gentle travel guide — for anyone looking to intentionally step more deeply into a soulful, meaningful life.  

I hope you’ll take a moment to read more below, purchase a copy yourself, and enter Carol’s contest.

I look forward to being more present online soon, once I’m feeling much better — until then I’m gonna snuggle up with some hot tea and Carol’s delicious book: Soul Food

Happy Spring!

Thanks for hosting me, Connie! I’m excited to share with you and your community my new book “Soul Food”, the contest and Free Book Offer that goes along with my upcoming book launch March 26, 27, 28 on, and, for International orders, on my website!

IGNITE – A Time of Growth

I had the very good fortune of being introduced to Connie and her online year long program called IGNITE in 2015/2016. It was a perfect timing for me, as I was on a slow, gentle road to recovery after having a pelvic fracture. I was a captive audience and I decided to honour my creative spirit by immersing myself in art and self expression.

At that time, my book, “Soul Food”, had been percolating within me for more than a year. I had begun to write and imagine the purpose, the layout, the wisdom and insights …but most importantly, the service it would be to inspire others to live into a greater version of themselves.

Facilitating My Purpose

It was my underlying desire to use this year long journey to finally facilitate the creation of my book. But IGNITE took me on a different path of my own self discovery, and that journey meant that “Soul Food” also took on a different version of itself. As I grew and gained knowledge, experience and confidence, so did my book. I am so grateful for the journey that led me to the final outcome of Soul Food … a book that is welcoming and inspiring, that speaks in a language that touches hearts, and that empowers its owners to know themselves and their hearts better.

Connie’s Gifts

Connie’s messages speak to our hearts too. She too helps facilitate an inner knowing that leads us on a path of self discovery … through her many offerings both online and in person. I have been fortunate to experience both and know how much Connie cares about each person and their creative expression. As artists and inspirers, we share a vision of seeing the potential and greatness in others, and aspire to encourage others to find that within themselves.

Wishing you all the best while you discover your true greatness.

With love,

About the Book

Title: Soul Food, A 90 Day Journey of Self Discovery While Building Nourishing Habits
Author: Carol Lowell
Format: 8×10 inch, full colour, paperback laid out in 3 X 30 day sections
Length: 312 page
Publisher: Kindred Spirit Studio

“Soul Food” Blurb

Soul Food is an interactive “play book” to help establish heart-centred habits in a gentle and positive way.  The first 30 days focuses attention on gratitudes, doing something you love, your Top 3 Priorities for the day, as well as some mandala colouring to help relax and rejuvenate you. The next 30 days expands the practice by adding body and health focus, as well as a beginning meditation practice.

From there, the final 30 days builds another layer of your foundational practice by adding daily journaling prompts to take you even further inward for some soul reflection.  Towards the final days, you have the opportunity to create your own mandala designs.

Each month, as you gradually and progressively build on the previous month’s groundwork, you can easily deepen your communication within. You will discover your soul voice that is as unique as you are. After 90 days, you will have created a daily practice that suits you, your interests, and your schedule. Each book will become as unique as the person working through it and making their marks. Most important of all is who you will become while on this journey!!
