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—most importantly—invites contentment.
Here's What It's About
How to Re-wild and Unplug: Our actions are out of sync with our wild inheritance. Reconnecting with our wilder nature—waking up, you might say, our inner bear—is a crucial component in our well-being.
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.
How to Open the Door to a 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. Awaken the Bear digs into these questions and provides actionable ways to pursue the answers.
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.
