Your One Wild and Precious Life AudioBook Summary
The New York Times best-selling author of First, We Make the Beast Beautiful tackles the loneliness epidemic, encouraging listeners to view solitude through a spiritual lens, and embrace the art of being alone.
This is not just a book for single people, introverts, or the self-proclaimed lone wolf. You can be in a crowded room, or at a dinner table with your spouse and children, and still feel powerfully lonely and disengaged.
Forty-six percent of Americans sometimes or always feel lonely, and loneliness is a public health hazard that rivals alcoholism, smoking, and obesity. Meanwhile, as our cultural sense of disconnection grows, our endless drive for “more” – more social media, more technology, overconsumption, workaholism – grows too. But what if we were to shut off our devices and simply sit with ourselves in what Wilson calls “radical aloneness?” Could this be the antidote to the profound sense of disconnection that we feel?
