A Path to Connection – Free E-book

A Path to Connection - mock book coverThere is a hunger the world over for deeper connection.

Ironically, in a world where we are more wired and electronically connected than we’ve ever been, where we can send a message or photo instantly to anywhere in the world, we have become disconnected from what really matters. We’ve become disconnected from ourselves, from others, from the sacred, and from the earth. In our disconnection we have become destructive, isolated, violent, lonely, and afraid.

For years now, I’ve born witness to this disconnection and have increasingly felt a calling to help people satisfy their hunger. I’ve read a lot of books, asked a lot of questions, had a lot of conversations, traveled to a lot of places, and done a lot of soul-searching. There is still much wisdom for me to gain, and many stories to gather, but the more I see people living disconnected lives, the more I know that this quest has become urgent and those of us with insight need to share it.

Out of my quest emerged a book.

Four paths graphicIn this free 67 page e-book, I’m sharing a lot of what I’ve learned about what it means to seek greater connection. I’ve written 4 essays, and have prepared a list of 100 ways to connect.

The journey to connection has four paths – self, sacred, others, and the earth. We can’t make connections with any of these four without impacting the others. When we seek connection with the sacred, we must also honour the earth. When we seek connection with others, our connection with ourselves also grows. At the intersection of all four of these paths is a sweet spot, and that’s the place of deepest connection that we all long for.

This e-book explores all four of these paths and will help you find your way to your sweet spot.

I didn’t do it alone, though. It seemed fitting, in writing a book on connection, that I’d invite others to contribute. I put out a call for submissions to other wise souls (teachers, poets, authors, artists, storytellers, etc.) who have some understanding of the quest for connection and thirty-three people responded. I am delighted to share with you their stories, tips, poems, and art work on the topic of connection. I know that there is much to be gained from their collective wisdom.

    My son and I had a painful experience moving back to my province of origin. I decided to move back “home” because I couldn’t cope anymore on my own, all by myself raising a child, away from all relatives. Among the chaos of moving back, the anxiety, the stress… my family didn’t hold space for us. They imposed their opinions. They criticized and judged. When I pushed back, setting boundaries, they responded by literally abandoning us. We moved back and NOBODY showed up to help us settle. No calls, no invitations, no dropping by, no asking if I needed anything (of course I did!!) I had let known that I had nothing left in me to fight, that I was dangereoulsly depressed. It was as if they were pushing me closer to the cliff. I wrote my parents that above all I needed to be listened to. No response. They all wanted to be proven right – and that I was wrong. It was one of the strangest experiences of my life. We ended up moving back where we used to live. I sincerely don’t know how I survived this. Certainly the kindness of the people back in the small town we had left and where we moved back. It was the right decision. I have cut contacts with my family since – that was almost 2 years ago. I don’t miss the bullying and the control.
