Using powerfully lyrical prose, the book takes you on a sublime adventure beyond the boundaries of your mind, into the realm of infinite creative potentiality. Each of these practices is designed to expand your consciousness, develop freedom and flexibility of mind, and inspire you to act to create a more just and generous world.
You’ll embrace your own beautiful complexity. You’ll honor the sacred beings, both physical and nonphysical, traveling alongside you on this grand adventure. And you’ll abide in the love that weaves you into the web of wholeness.
With each practice, you’ll invite your soul’s presence more fully into your life, and strengthen your capacity to be a source of soul in the world.

There are no right or wrong ways to engage with these practices.
They are explorations, mini-adventures. Each one will lead you someplace that only you can go, in that moment. And each time you revisit them, you’ll find yourself in the midst of a new adventure.

“Hiro seamlessly weaves stillness and action, movement and meditation, inquiry and experimentation to remind us that we are all inherently beautiful, powerful, and whole, and that joy and integrity are byproducts of curiosity and the creative process.
Her writing – lush, grounded, and often breathtaking in its precision – makes poetry out of liberation, reminding us that we are ever-changing. This work calls us to look closely and unflinchingly at the systems that shape us and that we in turn shape, and offers practices that help us untangle ourselves from these very titles and roles. In Hiro’s words: ‘Make a plan. Put it into motion. Begin today.’
With the steadiness of water against stone, Hiro’s gentle voice encourages us, again and again, to let go of that which holds us back and to move towards authenticity. Some of the pages here have just a single line, and I found the white space itself as potent an invitation into contemplation and exploration as the words themselves. Soul riddles, intended not to stump but to challenge our usual ways of processing and analyzing information, plunged me into participation in ways that surprised and changed me.
Use it as a guide on the path of becoming, the path of freeing ourselves from a lifetime of accumulated beliefs, the path to greater understanding of ourselves and how we meet the world, the path to true healing and accountability, and ultimately, to allowing our innate creativity to shine. This powerful book lives up to its subtitle, Adventures in Creative Consciousness. It has the ingredients to change not only your life, but the world – but each of us must roll up our sleeves to experiment with our own recipes. I can think of no better companion than Hiro Boga and the gift of To Be Soul, Do Soul.

“Hiro continues to be one of the most formative teachers of my life. She is my secret weapon of love, the coach in my corner ready to wipe the sweat and blood from my brow, the soul beacon beckoning me home. It is my dearest wish that everybody learn from Hiro, so her wisdom is dispensed from vending machines, held on every book shelf, emergency air-dropped in vast quantities across the land. That’s why this book is so important. Finally, a way to do just that.”

“If I was a guitar in need of tuning, this book and the wisdom in it would be my favourite tuning instrument! Reaching for this book helps to slow my breathing, reconnect within and… get back in tune.”

“Hiro Boga’s newest book knows us well. With a gentle, wise and playful spirit, it offers ways for us to leave behind—if only for a moment, or a moment that may last forever—the distances with which we’ve learned to live our complicated, overburdened lives, so that we may return to the wholeness we have never left behind. Every page offers a pathway home.”
Peter Levitt, Poet, Author of Fingerpainting on the Moon: Writing and Creativity as a Path to Freedom, PeterLevitt.com
“How is it that someone comes to understand such mysteries, to understand what it means to be human, to know exactly how to help us stand on our own two feet proudly and look out at the world with the eyes of Love? How is it that person then hones the skills necessary to translate all these insights into instructions that illuminate our path home to our own hearts so clearly? Heck if I know. All I know is, how fortunate we are. How fortunate I am. It is a rare and beautiful thing indeed, what we have here. I will pour it over my parched heart for many years to come.
To be immersed in this world is to feel, to glimpse, and even to “grok” the vastness that exceeds you and animates you. You will turn these pages and be altered by recognizing that you already have inside you all that you have been waiting for.”
