    Aside from my actual home, which thankfully does feel like home, I get a home connection in retreat houses. And in more recent years I am more at home in myself.

    Home is in some ways a dichotomous concept. On the one hand home is defined by our family construct — and this definition can change over our life time. On the other hand home is defined by being our true selves and being at home with that idea. I think both are important and the latter vital.

    In my chair, on my yoga mat, on the floor practicing Essentrics, in a lake swimming, on my bike riding by the sea, in my condo with my beloved (and without him too), in my neighbourhood, in my city, in certain churches, certain cafes, with our gratefulness group. It is about familiarity and belonging – to self, to communities, to creation, and creator.

    On a windy beach or snowy mountain about to venture out on a board…

    In our family home which has housed 4 generations and many more to come. Quiet, humble, full of love.

    Our home here in Shoreline, nestled in the trees, ten minutes from a beach surrounded by mountain ranges with breath taking views. Feeling snug as a bug, lying in bed at night with the windows thrown open; listening to the chatter of racoons and the hoot of a Great Northern Owl. Yesterday I put amber lightbulbs in a couple of lamps, adding to the warm ambiance and quietly setting an intention.

    I have also felt at home sitting under a willow tree at my grandmother’s home. To this day I love to sit and listen to the rustling of the leaves and the sounds of the outdoors around me.

    And always where my heart is.

    In the Eastern woods of the US. Walking on the beach by the Pacific Ocean one night, I was disappointed to be missing the Eastern woods. But I learned to love my night time walks on the beach by the Pacific Ocean.

    I feel at home in the desert. Funny I ended up in the rainy Pacific Northwest!

      May you learn to feel at home there, too, dear Linda –

    The campsite I used to book a few times each summer in Southern Vermont…it overlooked a small reservoir.

    But really, wherever my cats are is home.

    I have a tendency to want to move somewhere new every few years…. So nowhere has ever really felt like home. Right now I’m saving up to buy a house in a few years….maybe that will change my perspective on this …

    Specifically in the mountains is where I tend to feel most at home. I recall being several hours into a hike at the Tetons and finding a pause in conversation in which I looked up and was fully aware of where I was. The sound of water flowing gently down a creek bed and the soft breeze blowing wildflowers as the sun sat high in the sky and pressed up against these larger than life mountains with big puffy white clouds drifting slowly and without purpose. I remember sitting down on the bridge that crossed the creek and just being fully present in that moment. There was an overwhelming sense of emotion and when I’m feeling particularly stressed this is the home that I return to. It’s amazing the feeling the feeling nature invokes in my spirit. And how interesting that these mountains which do not move manage to move me to my core.

      The Tetons are quite wonderful, aren’t they, JayJacks!

    Being outside is the only time I feel safe and that I belong in the world. I especially love the mountains.

    When I was younger, I always felt at home in any school that had a band or orchestra that I could join. The last employment I had, as director of a retreat house, felt like home to me. Through the years, step by step, I made my way to the work that felt exactly right. And of course, anyplace my family is, anyplace there are bodies of water nearby and birds in the trees, and that just has that feeling of “I’m home.”
