More about Jodi Chapman
Co-Editor on PsychoSpiritual
Jodi Chapman is an inspirational writer who is passionate about helping each of us listen to and be guided by our soul. But, like many of us, her life wasn’t always so overtly spiritual. Actually, she spent most of her life in the left side of her brain – focusing on logic, proof and anything black and white. She received a BA in Technical Editing and Sociology with plans to become a statistician. She spent several years working for a publication that focused on debunking spiritual/mystic claims and several more working as a technical editor, but she just didn’t feel fulfilled.
Through a series of magical and beautiful awakenings (including a car accident that kept her from working for two years), she slowly began to open up to the miracles that had always been all around her. And in doing so, her entire life changed – it became brighter and filled with love. She now knows that we are never alone, we are always taken care of and all of the answers – every single thing we need to know about our time here on Earth – have always been inside of us.
She has made it her life mission to continue growing spiritually while sharing what she has learned through her writing. Her inspirational blog, Soul Speak, boosts the spirit and soothes the soul with heartfelt posts and soulful interviews. Her bestselling Soulful Journals series (co-written with her husband, Dan Teck) consists of writing-prompt books on topics including gratitude, introspection, life transitions, relationships and manifesting your ideal life. She is currently writing Coming Back to Life: Waking Up with the Help of an Unlikely Friend – a metaphysical memoir about her transformation from spiritual skeptic to believer. Her writing has been featured in Whole Living Magazine, Soul Magazine, First 30 Days, Stepcase Lifehack and The Gratitude Book Project. She is a part of Team Inspiration at Aspire Magazine.
She lives in southern Oregon with her amazing husband. She is grateful every day that she gets to hang out with her best friend and soul mate, who also happens to be an amazing writer and inspirer! They share their lives with their beautiful dog-ter, Xena, and three sweet cats: Biddle, Buncom and Elsie.
She is thrilled to be a part of the amazing team of healers, teachers, inspirers and seekers here on All Things Healing. She believes that we are each on our own path of awakening, and there is so much we can offer each other in terms of love and support. She would love to connect with anyone who is also on a soul-filled journey!
