Book Overview

2017 Nautilus Award Gold Winner

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.

   She's better on Instagram
I didn't feel like I belonged to anything, Blair said. It's just one long drawn out motive, saying which led me nowhere." She has more than 300,000 followers on Instagram, her most popular social media platform. Even then, I stopped following her.
   Absolute Master piece! Brilliant!
Master piece of furniture. Brilliant work, said Paul D. Harrison, director of music for AOL Europe. Toko-pao invites a conversation and posture of living that promotes purpose, fulfillment, and bodily alignment. This book is sacred and if you will allow it, every single thing we do can be sacred too! Thanks for all your support!
   Beautiful and life affirming read
This book is highly recommended by those looking to process grief and interested in personal reflection. Beautifully written, Tom Petty's music stands in a class by itself. Once I got going, I couldn't put it down. I am going to be reading it a second and third time.
   Perfect book for our romantic picnic
A friend of mine owned this book and I read a few pages and I needed to have it. She said she got married to me during an anniversary picnic and I surprised her with it too. Very inspiring.
   Your heart will recognize this book
Turner's book was highly recommended by Gillian Alexander, who writes for Harper's Bazaar. It is both lyrical and an aesthetic pleasure to read, and it somehow contains all the important stories of my heart and the values I live by, Raymond said. It will quickly become a favorite.
   Wise, beautiful, healing.
It's the most important book I've ever read. The world is changing in ways we never could have predicted. There are just a handful of words that can express how sacred and healing the experience of reading this is. I never wrote reviews but I want other people to read them and gain from it like I have.
   Author lacks empathy
Not impressed with Ms. Smith's views and advice. As a new ager, I'm sad to see that this author is lacking extreme amounts of empathy and basically people to encourage shred all parts of community that are different or don't fit in their life view. It's just that we can't live like that. We must live globally and inclusively, respecting others wishes and possessing empathy and understanding, he said. This book was not intended to employ that technology, Hughes said.
   This book will transform the way you feel.
Hundreds of people have already said so. I have severe mental health issues, including post-traumatic stress disorder, that are very difficult to predict. In fact, my childhood outline was very similar to that of Toko Pakaya. The greatest I can say from my reading gift 'Belonging' is that it gave me assurance that I wasn't alone in my reasoning, responses and reactions that I feel so ashamed and over. Feeling at home again brings you that sense of belonging. This book is a power. The book will change the way you think about your past and the way you perceive the truth of family histories. It helps you reclaim power. Toko-pa thanks you for your bravery and authenticity.
   Moving, healing, and true
I have never picked up a book and read a story. It makes me feel validated, seen, known, Mr. Booher told the judge. He also said that it took "a lot of courage" to tell the story. He added: "I am deeply, deeply grateful for that.
   Life affirming. A brilliant, concise tool for forward motion.
I am almost finished with the second part. It arrived yesterday so I can go through it again with highlighters, I'm told. I would eat it, said Dr. Steve Peters, director of the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. It's just that I can always rub the paper version all over myself. No wonder SALVAGEDATA is so happy.
