Braving the Wilderness


True belonging doesn't require us to change who we are; it requires us to be who we are

True belonging is not about fitting in, pretending, or making the people around us comfortable because that's safer. The four practices of true belonging require us to be vulnerable, get uncomfortable, and learn how to be with people without sacrificing who we are and what we value.

Each practice challenges how we think about ourselves, show up with one another, and find our way back to courage and connection:

  • People Are Hard to Hate Close Up. Move In.
  • Speak Truth to BS. Be Civil.
  • Hold Hands. With Strangers.
  • Strong Back. Soft Front. Wild Heart.

True belonging and self-worth are not goods; we don't negotiate their value with the world. The truth about who we are lives in our heart. Our call to courage is to protect our wild heart against constant evaluation - especially our own.
