You aren’t living in the shade of others.

The roots of your tree grow deep.
And they have stories to tell.
It’s time to make your impact known.


The Soul Writer Journey helps purpose-driven individuals identify, write, and share their soul’s story as inspired by their life journey.

Because let's be honest... you didn't start out in life knowing what you know today.

More than likely, your journey to get here has been filled with highs and lows, mountains and valleys, light and darkness, good days and bad days, pain, joy, growth, and triumph. 

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 there's power within your story, and you're ready to explore it. 

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,  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).

Right now you realize the power of capturing your story, but something has held you back from sharing it. We want to help you step into your fullest light, to connect your story with the pages, and maybe someday, when you’re ready, share it with those who need it the most, to help you leave a legacy and charge a movement that can change lives forever. We want to help you become a Transcending Luminary.

But it starts with writing your story.
First, for you. 
Then maybe someday, for others. You can decide that after it’s written. 

Regardless, there’s a deeper reason you’re on this page right now. There’s a part of you that knows your story deserves to be written, and you know it’s time to do it.

“Owning our story can be hard but not nearly as difficult as spending our lives running from it. Embracing our vulnerabilities is risky but not nearly as dangerous as giving up on love and belonging and joy—the experiences that make us the most vulnerable. Only when we are brave enough to explore the darkness will we discover the infinite power of our light.”
-Brene Brown

From Lauren Eckhardt, CEO & Founder of Burning Soul Press:

"To me, writing your life story is one of the most important things you can do with your time in the world. You don't have to do it alone. We will help you write and capture it, whether just for you, or to turn it into a book someday.


Check out our growing community

The soul writer journey course was just the thing I was looking for to get me out of a creative slump. The sense of community made such a difference for me and engaged me in writing in many new and diverse ways. Writing is an isolated activity, and the group made me feel like part of a family. I needed that, and so did my stories.”

-Leah Spradlin


"Lauren and her team are helpful, knowledgeable and passionate about supporting writers to reach their goals and succeed. Lauren teaches the tools and skills to support your writing journey in a natural, accessible and truly inspiring way! Through the course, I made the necessary changes and recommitted to the book that I’ve been ‘thinking about’ and ‘dabbling with’ writing for a decade now – I feel confident that I’ll finish my book (and possibly many more) with the inspiration, support, accountability and structure that Lauren and her team at Burning Soul Press offer.
I was so impressed by Lauren’s passion, which shines through her eyes and everything she says."

-Liz Witherspoon

“With this being my first venture as an author, I was 100% that person who would have questions popping up from other questions. This would have left me overwhelmed and possibly even caused me to quit. Thankfully Lauren and Burning Soul were there to guide me quickly and with all the help and resources I needed to stay on track. I would recommend Burning Soul Press and the Mastermind program no matter what stage of your writing journey you’re in. There are resources, helpful tips and tricks, and support for every aspect of the writing process.”

-Trevor Creaman, Author of "Augmented Humanity"
