$34.99

$34.99

In This One Wild and Precious Life, Sarah Wilson explores the central disorder of modern existence: disconnection from ourselves, disconnection from community, disconnection from the preciousness of life on this planet.

This One Wild and Precious Life
is a journey of the soul, a case for why we need to cast off our too-tight psychic apparel and step bravely into the uncertainty of 'giving a fuck', the whirlpool of finding purpose, and the perilousness of connecting fully, passionately and unequivocally to life again.

Sarah's journey pivots from her own anxiety and feeling of disconnection, as she takes the reader on a three-year odyssey to reconnect with the life she feels we are losing via a series of hikes around the world. Throughout, she brings together science and spiritual understandings ('East meets West'), following in the footsteps of artists, poets and philosophers, to amplify the conversation that the world wants and needs to have right now.

Elegantly written and uncannily prescient, this is the perfect book for this difficult era of climate carnage and COVID-19, that goes well beyond the data and the political toing and froing, a compelling argument for turning collective crises and shared malaise into rocket fuel for personal and social transformation. And a better world.
