the Week" - Los Angeles Business Journal
"Self-help detractors, beware.
SoulfulLiving.com is geared toward self-reflection
addicts, and this month the site is focusing on 'The Soul at Work.' OK, some of
the essays and excerpts from books featured in the
site's 'Soulful Features' section seem
to be written by the same know-it-alls who
constantly participated in -- and actually enjoyed
-- Philosophy 101. But a lot of the articles
actually offer useful tips to the disgruntled
employee looking for a career boost.
'Work-as-Play' and 'The Power of Passionate Work'
are just some of the titles meant to inspire
employees suffering from job-related ennui.
The theme of turning a passionate extracurricular
interest into a career abounds. There are
plenty of anecdotal examples of well-paid but
uninspired people leaving their cushy jobs for
self-employment in a fun-sounding field, like
opening a bakery, which, of course, became a
multimillion-dollar chain. The excerpts and
essays are generally short, meaning they're less
of a commitment and far more palatable than a
lengthy self-help book. For those long
toying with jumping to a new job or career,
SoulfulLiving.com may hold the words to inspire

Suite101.com - "Caring for the Soul"
"Once in a while I run across a web site that is truly outstanding. I'd like to take the opportunity this week to introduce you to one of these sites. It
definitely has heart and soul beyond measure.
SoulfulLiving.com - Soulful Living is a web magazine that is 'a guide for whole life living'.
Its designer and web creator, Valerie, has done a beautiful job in bringing these ideas to life. The site is not only artistically laid out, but it is easy to navigate and filled with articles, advice, and ways that you can interact with other like minded individuals. The site has gotten rave reviews from Alternative News and The L.A Business Journal as well as many web awards. Here is just a sampling of what you can find there!
New Articles Each Month - Each month's issue is centered around a specific soul topic. July's topic is "Finding Joy". (I also know that the theme for August will be "Art and Creativity") Articles are inspirational as well as informative and are most often written by professional therapists and published writers. Author biographies are given as well as links that will assist the reader in further exploring the topic area.
Soulful Thoughts - This is a collection of monthly columns that are written by a team of regular columnists. (4 so far) Their areas of expertise include: Journaling, Art, Feng Shui, and Spiritual Development. Their work really adds depth and familiarity to the site.
Opportunity to Share - There is an area on the page where you can contribute your own stories of soulful inspiration. It is
fascinating and uplifting to read these touching accounts from all over the world.
Soul Shopping - Soulful living has an online shopping area where you can get ideas for a multitude of things that can make your home, garden and life a more soulful place to live. These items are carefully chosen for quality as well as beauty.
See for yourself! - You don't have to take my word for it, go check out soulful living for yourself. Pull up a comfy chair, you may be there for a while."

& Inspirational Website Review"
Josh Hinds' "The Inspiration A Day!" Newsletter
"The souls behind www.soulfulliving.com deserve praise because they find such a number of ways each month to satisfy the spirit! To be perfectly truthful, their features are so numerous that providing a comprehensive list here would be exhausting.
Let's just say that the theme the staff has pursued for July is
"Finding Joy," and they have pursued it with a passion. Nine authorities on the subject, as they say, "offer practical advice and techniques for attracting more joy into our lives." As if that weren't enough, they enable their visitors to get more information by offering
reading suggestions and
additional links with related information.
Certain columns, including one that I am particularly fond of by Kathleen Adams,
LPC, RPT, called "Scribing the
Soul," appear regularly. Rather than writing more for you to read, I encourage you to do what the Soulful Living staff recommends on its homepage, "Let your wholeness unfold. Live a fuller life, joyfully, with love. Enjoy!" By visiting
www.soulfulliving.com, that task might be easier to accomplish than many less-fulfilled souls would suspect."
