Awaken the Bear
Rediscover the Wild Within
Awaken the Bear is a small book with a big a message: The modern world has lulled us into a collective hibernation, and our actions are out of sync with our wild inheritance. To wake up, we need to stop the noise, activate our senses, and re-wild our daily patterns.
Rethink Your Daily Patterns
Your cubicles, your feeds, your routines, your commutes—aren’t they all just bars in a cell? Is there a rawer, wilder self within you longing to break out? Reconnecting with your wilder nature—waking up, you might say, your inner bear—is a crucial component in your well-being.
Open the Door to a 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? What sustains us? Then we need to pursue the answers and awaken the bear within.
