Arriving Home is a personal blog launched in November 2022 by me, Rob Walsh. My intention is to make this a space of inspiration for all of us to look inwards, transform, and walk a life path in accordance with our deepest values. I'll explore and reflect on books, articles, videos, podcasts, mindfulness practices, and anything else that is supporting me in continually arriving home within myself.
Think of me as a friend sharing my journey with you - walking together as we traverse up mountains, through storms, across sunlit fields, down into deep valleys, and back again.
