It’s the great paradox of the digital age that the internet connects us to millions of people, and yet we feel more isolated than ever, with 1 in 4 Americans saying that they have zero friends to confide in. Radha Agrawal, founder of Daybreaker—the morning, sober rave that occurs monthly in 22 cities worldwide—calls this “community confusion.”
BELONG: Find Your People, Create Community, and Live a More Connected Life, was born out of what Agrawal observed as her Daybreaker project grew: the need among all of us to find a place of acceptance, repair our social fabric, and reconnect. A modern how-to manual for figuring out where and with whom we fit, complete with beautiful, playful illustrations, it encourages readers to first go in – a process that includes discovering personal intention – and then go out so they can find their community and their people. Exercises meant to guide readers in their journey to belonging are sprinkled throughout, from how to determine core values, interests, and abilities to 10 foolproof ways to nurture community to taming the mean girls of your mind (also known as your inner thoughts of comparison, perfectionism and judgment).
A copy of the Belong is included in your ticket price & Radha will be signing books after the event
