Family: In Search of Genuine Belonging, Paul's latest pioneering publication, is now available for purchase.


Family: In Search of Genuine Belonging offers a lucid account of the types of families we come from as well as the childhood roles we play in them. The text offers ways to liberate ourselves from the rigidity of a family role. Because there are no perfect families, we can identify what family patterns inhibit our maturation and the ones that support our individuation. The reader is encouraged to learn how to curate self-belonging and the deepening of belonging with others, as well as to honor life-giving legacies while interrupting those antithetical to the life force.

Paul will be co-facilitating the track The Power of Being Self Referenced with Andi Winter, at NPI’s 7th Annual Gathering at The Ocean Edge Resort and Golf Club in Brewster, Massachusetts. Details and registration information coming soon.

Family: In Search of Genuine Belonging

"Family: In Search of Genuine Belonging explores an important topic: how family love can fall apart in even the most loving of circles.

“Blessings” of different family structures and dynamics accompany the identification and definitions of families that centers on different incarnations; from “too much family” (with entwined identities that aren’t separate) to shame-based families; those dedicated to supporting heroic countenances; and others which require a scapegoat or mascot in order to function.

Each incarnation is treated to Paul Dunion’s analytical eye with the idea of exploring how denial, personal truths, chaos, or facades of looking good to those outside family translate to experience tempered by appearance."

Making Peace with Mystery

Making Peace with Mystery reflects the most pervasive initiatory process in all indigenous cultures. It is regularly referred to as the Initiation into the Mysterium Tremendum (Great Mystery). Once we can accept that we are on a deeply mysterious and insecure journey we can begin to step into a dynamic and creative dance between our personal wills and the power of Fate. Such a dance is aimed at yielding a destiny illuminated by both depth and meaning.

Let yourself be touched by her and she may grant you a glimpse.”
