Existential Migration - Looking for Professionals
In recent research I ask why people decide to immigrate to foreign cultures, and decide to live in various international localities.
It seems that a surprising number of voluntary immigrants are motivated – not merely by economic considerations, the state of their home countries, or professional prospects – but by their experiences of a “deeply-felt existential need” to actively respond to such questions as “Who am I?” and “Where do I belong?”.
“Unlike economic migration, simple wanderlust or forced migration, ‘existential migration’ is a chosen attempt to express or address fundamental aspects of existence by leaving one’s homeland and becoming a foreigner,”
I have been offering cross-cultural coaching workshops on this area and would be interested in teaming up with others. The book of these ideas is called The End of Belonging and is available on amazon.
