In Soulistry, spiritual teacher June Maffin has gathered from her own deep experience a heap of treasures: words of wisdom from across the ages, to which she has attached some very pertinent and moving questions for self-reflection and self-examination. It’s a book I would give to any seeker.

Traveling through Soulistry, stopping to drink in the 80 quotes of wisdom, Journal Prompts, and listening to your heart’s response in answering the Soul-Questions, brings the reader into a sacred journey. Ann Smith – Co-Director of Circle Connections
If we take the book’s provocative Soul-Questions seriously, answers well up from our souls and we will be motivated to go further into ourselves than perhaps we have ever gone.
