By Sebene Selassie
Book club dates: November 10, 17, and 24, at 7 PM ET.
About the Book
You are not separate. You never were. You never will be.
In You Belong, much-admired meditation teacher Sebene Selassie reveals that accepting our belonging is the key to facing the many challenges currently impacting our world. Using ancient philosophy, multidisciplinary research, exquisite storytelling, and razor sharp wit, she leads us in an exploration of all the ways we separate (and thus suffer) and offers a guide back to belonging.
