Inspiring, empowering, and creating a better world—
just by capturing your life story.

Your life journey to get you here has been incredible.

More than likely, your life has been filled with highs and lows, mountains and valleys, light and darkness, good things and bad things, trauma as well as joy.

The fact that you’re here right now means that you have overcome, you’ve triumphed, you’ve risen above the ashes, you’ve learned, you’ve grown, you’ve elevated to a newer level of understanding that you didn’t have before.

You’ve been through a lot—and you’ve survived. You’ve thrived. You’ve become the person you are today.

And you realize how powerful your journey has been in helping you become that person.

You realize how powerful your life story can be in inspiring, empowering, and shinning hope to others who are where you once were.

Maybe you’ve shared bits and pieces of your story with confidants in the past. Maybe you’ve courageously shared it in speeches. Maybe you’ve hidden it in poetry or fictional pieces. Maybe you’ve only journaled about it. Maybe it’s still locked up in your heart. But the fact that you’re here means that you want to do more with it. You know you haven’t stepped into your fullest calling on your heart. You know there is still work to do, and you’re ready to discover exactly what it may be so you can take action.

A book is the single best tool to encapsulate your story. Not only does it have the ability to find those who need your words the most, but it also transcends time and lasts as it gets passed from person to person and copies are printed again and again. It can touch more people while also capturing your exact tone with the words you want to say and how you want to say them. You can be seen and heard exactly as you want to be remembered, exactly in the way that will touch the lives of those who need it the most.

But many people get so hung up on the “hows” of writing a book, that they never start. Or, if they start, then they never finish, easily getting caught up in a repeating cycle of pains associated with writing their story (no time, no energy, it’s not perfect enough, not knowing what to do next, thinking no one cares about what they have to say, fearing judgement, or terrified of diving in deep to see what may be revealed once the veil is pulled back).

If you’re spending all your energy focused on the doing (and never completing it), what you’re actually questioning is, “Is this worth it?”

Is this worth the energy? Is this worth the time? Is this worth putting other things on hold to complete? Is it worth investing in to get the help I need? Is it worth putting it out into the world? Is it worth how my life may or may not change once others start to read it?

When you let go those fears and concerns that are blocking your truest words from flowing out, you can feel the tingles in your soul, the flutter in your stomach, the goosebumps lining your arms telling you that your story will change someone’s life. All you have to do is write from the heart.

Right now you’re an Enlightened Ember. You realize the power of your story, but something has held you back from sharing it all. We want to help you step into your fullest light, to connect your story with those who need it the most, to help you leave a legacy and a movement that can change lives forever. We want to help you become a Transcending Luminary.

There’s a deeper reason you’re on this page right now. There’s a part of you that knows your fullest purpose hasn’t been met yet.

Your soul is saying, “It’s time for a change.” And the world is saying, “We’re ready for your story.”

Gina Defa

Best-Selling Author of “The Parakeet Drawing”

“Lauren Eckhardt and Burning Soul Press made the journey of writing my memoir possible. She is a wonderful coach and encourager. The hundreds of hours we’ve spent crying and laughing together over the past year will always be some of my favorite memories.” 


Is publishing included in this?

No, we will walk you through the different publishing options and help you choose the one that best fits your goals and vision. If you choose to go with Burning Soul Press, it will be a seamless transaction since we already know your vision and goals from working with you as you write your book. If you think self-publishing may be in the cards for you, you can receive full self-publishing guidance in our Mentorship program.

What’s the difference between book coaching and ghostwriting?

Ghostwriting is essentially someone else writing your book for you. There are interviews so the writer can understand your voice, tone, stories, etc. and notes that you give the writer so they can compose your book.

A book coach gives you the tips and tricks to help you write your story. They’ll help you find the words and revise it as needed, but you ultimately write every single word, making it 100% your own.

What are the primary differences between the Soul Writer Journey and the Wave-Making Mentorship program?

With the Soul Writer Journey, it’s great support educating you on how to do things that will make you a successful author. In the Wave-Making Mentorship, we work alongside you, providing more guidance, support, and feedback through all stages of being an author (writing, revising, publishing, marketing, PR).
Lauren Eckhardt, the CEO of Burning Soul Press and a best-selling author and ghostwriter, is only coaching students in the Mentorship program. She uses the same methods she applies to her selective 1:1 Entrepreneurial Impact program just at a fraction of the cost since it’s done in a group environment within the Mentorship.

What if I don’t know which option is best for me?

Schedule a call with one of our Journey Coaches and they’ll help you through!
