A new book published in late 2009 is “Stories of Belonging: finding where your true self lives” and edited by Kali Wendorf.
Kali says….”belonging is an aspect of our true nature. It is not just a feeling or a sentimental experience. When true belonging is denied, we suffer a haunting povery of the soul”
This book consists of 15 stories from writers from Australia and around the world. They each reveal their own search to find where they belong. Experiences range from riding the rapids of the Grand Canyon, to living in a remote village of Tibet, to being confronted with sadness and loss, to being a member of the Stolen Generation.
