Feel like you don’t belong? You’re not alone.The world has never been more connected, yet people are lonelier than ever. Whether we feel unworthy, alienated, or anxious about our place in the world — the absence of belonging is the great silent wound of our times.

Most people think of belonging as a mythical place, and they spend a lifetime searching for it in vain. But what if belonging isn’t a place at all? What if it’s a skill that has been lost or forgotten?

With her signature depth and eloquence,
Toko-pa maps a path to belonging from the inside out. Drawing on myth, stories and dreams, she takes us into the origins of our estrangement, reframing exile as a necessary initiation into authenticity. Then she shares the competencies of belonging: a set of ancestral practices to heal our wounds and restore true belonging to our lives and to the world.

About the Author
In 2018, Toko-Pa Turner fulfilled a life-long dream and released her first book, Belonging, which explores exile and the search for belonging through the lens of dreams, mythology, and nature.

It went on to win several awards, including the 2018 Gold Nautilus Award, the 2018 Gold Readers’ Favorite Award, and the 2018 Silver IPPY. It was also a finalist in the 2018 Whistler Independent Book Awards and the 2019 Montaigne Medal in the Eric Hoffer Book Awards.

Belonging has been translated into 10 different languages. Along with speaking and teaching, Turner is currently working on her second book on the relationship between psyche and nature, and how to follow inner wisdom to meet the social, psychological, and ecological challenges of our time.
