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 is in her late forties, Gabrielle asks the question that most of us will ask at some point in our lives: ‘Who am I?’
To answer this fundamental human question, she takes us through each phase of her powerful 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.

What Others Are Saying:
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.
Reading Gabrielle Bergan’s heart-felt story was, for me, like transforming “Eat, Pray, Love” from one exotic summer vacation into a meaningful way of being, experiencing and connecting to the fullness of life in each and every moment. Her willingness to so compassionately risk such graceful intimacy with her readers makes “Return to My Soul” not just one person’s story, but also some significant part of my own – and, perhaps some essential piece of all of our stories. James Vandenburg, author of Making Life Better.
This beautifully written story captures the amazing journey of returning to the core of our being. Gabrielle Bergan’s authentic nature and powerful yet simple story-telling skills weave the reader into her world where she engages on a level that triggers and evokes the importance of healing from the root.
