From the Publisher

“Curl up with this delicious book. Savor it. Taste the exercises. In a world where we so often find ourselves alienated, disconnected from others and even from ourselves, it can help you reconnect and heal.”

—Elisha Goldstein, PhD, coauthor of A Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction Workbook

“In clear, straightforward language—and with unmistakable caring—True Belonging shows ways to break through partial truths, mistaken beliefs, and shoddy storylines that mire us in loneliness. On the other side lies a cheerful appreciation of the ‘whole truth’ of who we really are.”
—Barry Boyce, editor of The Mindfulness Revolution and www.mindful.org
