The Wow Effect How Awe and Wonder Heal Us

THE KEY TO A MEANINGFUL LIFE 

We live in a time of record levels of depression, stress, and loneliness yet we can find healing by opening up to the many wonders that surround us and connecting to more experiences of awe in our everyday lives.  

Join psychologist and author Jonah Paquette for a program that explores what happens to you when you gaze up at the night sky, see a beautiful rainbow, or stand before a mountain. This feeling, often accompanied by goosebumps or a shiver down your spine, is known as awe. This underappreciated and often misunderstood emotion holds an important key to a happy, meaningful, and healthy life—and recent studies on awe have linked this emotion to a host of benefits including changes to our mental health, physical health, and social relationships. 

Through conversation, reflection, and deep exploration, you will:

  • Explore the importance of awe, gratitude, flow, self-compassion, and more.
  • Learn how to apply these concepts during times of hardship and challenges.
  • Integrate evidence-based, awe-inspiring practices into your everyday life. 

Return home ready to live an awestruck life.
