POWER OF WONDER by Monica C. Parker

by: Monica C. Parker

The goal of happiness can be quite an intimidating one and sometimes it’s hard to know what we imagine happiness even feels like. Wonder is a more realistic aim because we do know how it feels and it isn’t so dependent on a set of other finely nuanced checks and balances. This isn’t so much a how-to book as a series of chapters on all the ways to find wonder with many stories of the joy that people have managed to find. Of course it’s very inspiring and hopefully it will encourage us too to be a bit more creative and imaginative with our lives. Monica also goes into the science behind wonder and the fields in which we can search for it, including of course both religion and psychedelics. Wonder is so precious and this makes this book very useful for getting it into our lives.
