Exploring the Connection Between People and Place

Each of us longs for home, for the sense of feeling at home and being at home. Yet at some point, many of us have felt estranged from home and don’t know where to find it.

We live our lives, possibly content yet sensing at moments the overwhelming sensation of being unmoored. We buy more things, purchase bigger houses, move to “better” locations, and still don’t feel content or soulfully connected to place.

How do we find home – that place where we feel comfortable and safe, where our needs are met, and we belong? How do we find the place that just feels right?

Why do some places, people, and things feel more like home than others? And how do we create home as adults, especially when family or jobs no longer dictate where we have to live?

I can help you find these answers.
