Abstract:

Home is more than an address. It's a place you belong, one that reflects who you are. This feeling of belonging comes from your being, as well as where you are. Recognizing that relationship between you and your environment opens a door. When you understand the link between these two, you can step across a threshold and make your home a place that works well and feels right. "Being Home" teaches you how to establish this link between you and the outside world by: Creating awareness about your natural and energetic boundaries, Finding your own roots and how to connect to your spaces, and Utilizing the three fundamental qualities of an environment to create a feeling of home wherever you are. Each lesson is supported by a variety of exercises that can be performed at home, at the grocery store, even while stuck in traffic. When you engage with your surroundings, you'll move with fluidity and confidence anywhere--a crowded room, an empty street, and anywhere in between.

    schema:description "From Kirkus Review: In this spiritual guide to creating wellness in any space, debut author Ross delivers practical advice, strategies, and clear explanations of the ways people interact with their surroundings. The author, a teacher and public speaker, offers a wealth of knowledge and solutions in this guide to developing a nurturing, calming relationship with one's environment. Ross explains that although most people have a place that they call home, they may still feel exiled if they don't feel at home emotionally. Ross begins with the powerful advice to start a ٢conversation٣ about a room, asking oneself questions such as, When you go to bed, are you able to let go of the day easilyand What are your typical routines in the space, and are they really restfulShe then suggests that small changes can shift one's relationship with a space-one that has usually formed from unconscious habit. She suggests٢reading your environment٣: noticing things that feel ٢off٣ about a room and examining what those things say about you. For example, Ross includes an anecdote about a woman named Helen, who found that paper piled up in her living space; this signaled to her that she wasn't good at making decisions. By simply placing a recycling box near the door, Ross says, Helen empowered herself to make immediate determinations about what to save and what to recycle, which allowed her to clear her mind and her environment at the same time. If one feels ٢not at home, ٣ Ross explains, ٢it's important to understand why. A chair that is too close to the carpet edge or a bookcase crammed beyond capacity is a message.٣ Ross skillfully explains the concept of chakras and the ways that they act as energy centers in the body, and then delivers an intriguing, easy-to-understand explanation of how the body contains centers of control and calm. Although other self-help books also explore such topics, this title does so in a logical fashion that makes it great for readers who've never explored chakras, meditation, or other topics of holistic wellness. A clear, conversational exploration of one's connections to home." ;
