If you’re struggling with loneliness, you’re not alone!


The media tell us that loneliness is an “epidemic” in the modern world. Literally millions of people across the globe are experiencing the same pain you are.

The isolation and estrangement of loneliness touches EVERYONE because of the disconnection that is built into the structure of modern culture, which reflects humanity’s perilous disconnection from the creative intelligence of nature.

Even though you feel the pain of loneliness in your own tender heart, you are not broken, and it’s not your fault.

Your vulnerability softens and opens your heart and makes you more available for connection.

Loneliness isn’t what you think it is.

Loneliness isn’t about being alone (that’s why you can feel terribly alone in a marriage, or at a potluck). Loneliness is about not feeling connected and it can guide you into reconnection.

Loneliness isn’t a shameful personal failure, and trying to get rid of it only creates self-alienation.

If you’re feeling lonely, there’s something RIGHT with you. You are feeling your heart’s deepest longing for connection, belonging and love.

What if, instead of hiding loneliness, we treated it like a sacred messenger?

Loneliness carries a necessary, life-affirming message. It brings news of pervasive disconnection. And, loneliness holds the hidden treasure of your longing - the creative life-force that rises up and reaches out with inspiration, hope and desire.

Longing isn’t about “getting” something. It’s about being and becoming (who you are), and expressing and sharing that, in order to more fully inhabit your place in the web of life.

What kind of transformation might be possible if you and I knew in our bones that the world longs for us as much as we long for the world?
