"If you read one book in 2020, make it this one." -- Tricycle

"With grace, intelligence, and palpable compassion, Selassie weaves discussions of implicit bias, intergenerational trauma, and white supremacy throughout her coverage of more traditional spiritual topics, such as ego and conscious awareness. . . . This is a powerful work of spirituality and anti-racism." -- Publishers Weekly

"Sebene Selassie is one of the most highly respected and beloved newer voices in the mindfulness world. Her vision of belonging is one where we all find a home this body, this mind, with one another, on this planet. With depth and understanding (plus flashes of really funny humor) in this book Sebene skillfully traces a path we would all do well to follow." -- Sharon Salzberg, Bestselling author of Real Change

"This powerful and timely book shines a clear light on the root of our personal and societal suffering, the misperception that we don't belong. Sebene is a wise, brave and trustworthy spiritual guide--the teachings, stories and reflections in You Belong reveal the shared field of awareness and love that is our true home." -- Tara Brach, Author of Radical Compassion

"In You Belong, Sebene Selassie guides us in exploring all the ways we feel we don't belong. The good news is we do belong - to everyone and everything. That may be the bad news too. We belong to the feelings of loneliness, anxiety, and separation as much as to the love and connection. We belong to each other (even those we don't like or agree with), and our joy and freedom depend on recognizing this truth. With wisdom and humor, this book shows us that belonging has always been possible and it's the only way through our challenging times." -- Iyanla Vanzant, Bestselling author of Acts of Faith
