Awaken the Bear
Awaken the Bear is a small book with a big message: Spending time in nature boosts mental acuity, promotes health and wellness, encourages creativity, and invites contentment.
Here's What It's About...
#1—How to re-wild and unplug: Our actions are out of sync with our wild inheritance. Our cubicles, our feeds, our routines, our commutes are just bars in a cell. Reconnecting with our wilder nature—waking up, you might say, our inner bear—is a crucial component in our well-being.
#2—How to see your daily routine with new eyes: The modern world has lulled us into a collective hibernation. To wake up, we need to stop the noise, activate our senses, and re-wild our daily patterns.
#3—How to open the door to wilder and more meaningful life: The goal for all of us should be to approach life with excitement and zest, to feel alive and activated, and to live a life that is wild and authentic. But none of this happens on its own. There are levers that we need to pull, and we need to ask the right questions: Why and where are we meant to roam? What animates us? What challenges us? Then we need to pursue the answers and awaken the bear within.
Welcome to the Adventure
Each book in this four-part series (Part II is coming soon!) explores a different pillar of the adventure-driven life and the skills that sustain it. The entire series is underpinned by two related truths: A well-lived life is an adventurous life and an adventurous life requires skillful living.
