Review in December 2011/January 2012 Albemarle Magazine

Joanne DiMaggio's new book, Soul Writing: Conversing with Your Higher Self (Olde Souls Press, August 2011), is meant to help the inspired writer to reveal that inner wisdom and move to a place of greater insight and comfort. DiMaggio's book provides some basic wisdom and tips for soul writing. DiMaggio is a graduate of the University of Illinois with a degree in history. She earned her masters in transpersonal studies through Atlantic Unviersity in Virginia Beach, Virginia, where her thesis on inspirational writing served as the basis of this book. DiMaggio now lives and writes in Charlottesville.

Review in Mystic Living Today

It was a divine pleasure to review this 210 page how-to on Spirit Writing at the deepest of levels. I loved the authors relaxed and descriptive style as she shared her experiences with me. I learned about how to do soul writing in an easy and detailed format and it was so well laid out I had no trouble at all.  It was amazing to find out that I could even use this simple process to connect to my past lives.  I found the research project to be completely fascinating, it really got me excited to do my own writing.

I love how God always gives me what I need when I need it the most and this great teacher is no exception. I have been going through a lot of external and internal changes lately and I was looking for a way to process things in a safe and enlightened environment, and now I have my answer. I would recommend this blessed find to anyone wanting to take meditation to a new level. Thanks Joanne for sharing your process with the rest of us.

Love & Light,

Riki Frahmann

Book Review on Women's Radio website

Book Review in New Age Retailer

"DiMaggio has been exploring inspirational writing, both as a writer and as a researcher, for years. As an executive member of Edgar Cayce’s Association for Research and Enlightenment, she had the opportunity to put her knowledge into practice in many ways. This book is an offshoot of her study and work. One of the first things she wants readers to understand is the difference between inspirational writing and automatic writing. Inspirational writing comes from a divinely connected source within us, she explains. It is not meant to communicate information from an unknown, outside source. It is meant to help the inspired writer peel off layers that obscure the inner wisdom and move the writer to a place of greater insight and comfort. She offers the reader lots of clearly written information, fleshed out with examples from her personal experience, on how to accomplish that goal. She helps readers learn to use inspired writing to explore past lives, enhance psychic abilities, as a tool for psychoanalysis, and for soul growth. Customers who are already journaling will find this one very helpful in moving their writing to the next level."
