If you want to feel more joy and aliveness in your life, cultivate wonder. Our ability to place our attention on all the beauty and magic around us is directly connected to how joyful, grateful and happy we feel. According to writer and artist Andrea Scher, author of Wonder Seeker: 52 Ways to Wake Up Your Creativity and Find Your Joy, all we need to find wonder and awe is an open heart and a clear intention. When we do, it has the power to renew our spirits and reclaim our inner happiness.
In this conversation we discuss:
- What is wonder and why we need it;
- How wonder can be an antidote to anxiety;
- How we can become a “wonder seeker”;
- How we can become distracted by “counterfeit joys”;
- The ways wonder and connection intersect.
