It was hard for me to feel like a belonged anywhere. I found a dark comfort in loneliness. Slowly I became a stranger to the people closest to me, I stayed in a shell that had become to small for me. When I heard about Atangard I decided it was time for me to try and break out of my shell.

Living at Atangard has brought tremendous change in my life. I started to develop my own world view, and have become more comfortable in what I believe. With the help of my housemates, I have been given the chance to connect with myself. Living here and surrounding myself with these beautiful people has helped me to understand that it is almost impossible to grow when you block the world out.

“We become human only in the company of other human beings.  And this involves both opening our hearts and giving voice to our deepest convictions. When we shrink from the world, our souls shrink, too”. – Paul Rogat Loeb.
