The older I am getting the more I am understanding how to dissect titles of book to really analyse what they are all about and how they might be of relevance to me. What caught my eye apart from the artwork; the words ‘One Wild’ and ‘Precious Life’. In my mid forties I understand both sentiments; live wild whilst appreciating how precious this life is in which we live and breath.
Sarah Wilson is a female adventurer after my own heart; she’s lived out of one suit case for 8 years, she hears and feels the energy from nature and she is both a pessimist and optimist. There is hope and we need to always below that despite our thinking, one person can make a difference because that one person at the end of the day is actually many – we just haven’t all connected yet.
This one wild and precious life opens our eyes to how we got to where we are now and shows us the hopeful path forward drawing on science, literature, philosophy, the wisdom of some of the world’s leading experts including her own personal journey. We are encouraged to challenge ourselves through a series of wild practices for reconnecting which include:
- Do what scares you and embrace discomfort daily
- Break the cycle of mindless consumption and get light with your life
- Embrace poetry, deep reading, art, and classical music to light up your intellect
- Get spiritual with a daily active practice
- Walk in nature to reconnect with ourselves, and with our true purpose
- Practise wild activism to create our better world
