How would it feel to embark on an inner journey so painful yet so beautiful that it changed you forever? In Return to My Soul, Gabrielle Bergan shares just such a journey.
Tracing her life from a difficult childhood in Australia to marriage and settling in Norway, Gabrielle tells of her life-long search for a sense of belonging, and the deep, inner yearning to find her real self.
No longer knowing who she was after many years of marriage, Gabrielle asked the question that most of us will ask at some point in our lives: ‘Who am I?’
To answer this most human of questions, she takes us through each phase of her awakening with openness and honesty, from the fragmentation of her personal identity to the emergence of her soul — the real self she had been longing to find.
Through the sharing of her own story, Gabrielle warmly encourages all of us to also return to our souls.

Return to My Soul starts out as a quaint meandering of a girl’s journey to becoming a woman. A coming of age story on its face….until the bottom drops out and the chasm rocks you to your core, and that is where the journey truly begins. Superbly crafted, raw, and powerful. Shawn Marie Paul, author of Life in Motion.
Return To My Soul is a groundbreaking and stunning illustration of the “Heroine Journey” and Gabrielle Bergan models it for us, through the transformation of her difficult life experience; her pain, fear and guilt; with grace, power and beauty.
