Do you remember the time when you stood in wonder under the starry night sky as a child?
Or when you saw a deer while walking in the woods and held your breath in amazement?
But then you stopped having experiences like that. Somehow. At some point.
And you're not alone in that. But the truth is that things haven't really changed. Only we have changed.
There is an innate magic in the world that we often overlook as adults. For many of us, these moments of genuine wonder seem lost.
But what if we could regain that sense of wonder? And what would we get out of it?
The history of the book
The journey of this book began on one of my walks in the woods with a simple thought: the magic we know as wonder has not disappeared, only we have allowed our sense of this ability to atrophy.
Through thorough research, reflection I set out to fill that gap again. The writing process itself was an adventure in which I uncovered the layers of our, and thus my own, alienation and ways in which we can reawaken our innate sense of wonder.
Navigating through modern distractions
Modern life, with its relentless pace and endless distractions, has a habit of drowning out the awe-inspiring moments that happen around us every day. "The book of wonder" invites you to pause and tune back into those moments. It is an open letter, an invitation to revive the dormant spark of wonder that is within each of us.
The scientific and the spiritual
However, I felt it was important not to simply make assertions and therefore placed a great deal of emphasis on exploring the science of wonder. The book takes an in-depth look at the neurological and psychological aspects of this emotion and why it is an essential part of our well-being. But beyond the science, it touches our souls and reminds us of the spiritual richness that comes with living in awe.
A practical guide to fascination
Likewise, it was important for me to convey knowledge that is suitable for everyday life in the form of practical advice and exercises. The book doesn't just romanticize the concept of wonder, but offers concrete steps to incorporate it into our daily lives. Whether it's a guide to mindful observation or exercises to enhance everyday experiences, the book offers a clear path back to a life of fascination.
