about

Awe.

It is about wonder. About accessing the amazing to express reverence, admiration. Awe like this can show up in every aspect of our lives - even those we declare as not so great.

Psychologist Nicholas Humphrey says awe forces us to reconfigure our mental model so we can make sense of what we've seen. It broadens us, inspires us.

Awe has the ability to awaken us. It can show us beauty and remind us who we are. It brings us closer to our purpose and passion and helps us create meaning. It helps us to live with the mystery in life, to survive the uncertainty of it all. It allows us to sink into the experience of living.

When you live in awe of your life you are open to diverse experiences. Some are easy and joyous. Others totally suck. But you are okay because you know that within every experience the possibilities are limitless.

Polly Campbell designed this book to help you engage with the awesome qualities of your life.

Do whichever exercises you want. Read this book chapter by chapter or go to the section that helps you most right now. Take what works, discard the rest.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just what I needed. Thank you, Karen. We've talked many times about my passion, what drives me. Yet I still remain in the planning and architect stages, frustratingly not having made progress for a while. I know many readers will each take away something special and actionable from your book, each one unique to them. I wanted to let you know what resonated most strongly with me while reading 'Unwrapping Your Passion'. You reminded me of the need for GRIT. I took a really deep look inside and realized I may have been pulling the wool over my own eyes. I realized I've been full of excuses. And what I need to overcome that is some GRIT. Thank you, thank you, thank you! Your book was the gentle slap on the back that I so desperately needed. I am grateful.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very nice book on mindfulness I found it easy to read and helpful among all such books. It is not voluminous which is good. I am going to highlight practical nuggets of wisdom. The book is not rigid. Very nice.
