Where's my Tribe?

Am I the only person who has asked this question at one time or another? The one thing that school does is provide us with is an instant tribe. We may not like the people in it but for a certain amount of time we are subjected to this readymade community. But once school ends and we are free to express our genuine self, whatever that is, where do we find a new tribe? Straight or gay, black or white, everyone doesn't fit neatly into a package.
Just a question, just an observation...


  1. This is why I am so thankful for discovering the movement meditation practice of 5Rhythms and having so many class opportunities in my vicinity (New Jersey/Philadelphia/New York). Our groups are called "tribes," because it brings a deep sense of community, support, and nurturing for growth. I had been searching for years for some kind of organized community, but church and local women's groups just aren't my cup of tea. I love my dancing tribes, and I finally feel like I've found what was missing in my life.
