The Inner Life of Home

“This anthology explores our longing for sanctuary and the mythology of home from many viewpoints
—a treasure trove of storytelling.”
—Jean Shinoda Bolen
If you want to get to know someone, listen to their story of home. Intimacy builds as we ask: Where do you come from? What did you leave behind? Where do you feel safe? In Sanctuary, these questions are explored by Jungian analysts, architects and historians, scientists, and storytellers. Contributors also consider how climate change, Black Lives Matter, and an unprecedented wave of global refugees are impacting our notions of home and hospitality.
“Sanctuary considers our modern challenges of rootlessness, lack of time, loss of place. A timely meditation on our sense of longing and belonging
—and our search for home wherever we can find it.”
—Phil Cousineau

At Home In The World: 
Sounds and Symmetries of Belonging
by John Hill
Part of the Zurich Lecture Series and previously published by Spring Journal, this work offers a profound philosophical and psychological exploration of the multi-dimensional significance of home and the interwoven themes of homelessness and homesickness and contemporary global culture. 
Home is a particular dwelling place, as a cultural or national identity, as a safe temenos in therapy, and as a metaphor for the individuation process are analyzed expertly from multidisciplinary perspectives and, more poignantly, through the sharing of diverse narratives that bear witness to lives lived and endured from memories of homes lost and regained.
