How to Find Awe, Meaning, and Wonder in Everyday Life

“One of the best spiritual books of 2020.” –Spirituality&Practice.com

Bestselling author and TEDx presenter Allen Klein returns to find and define awe. In his latest book, he shows readers how to escape the everyday ruts of life by opening their eyes to the awe and wonder around them.

Exploring the human ability to be in awe. What does it mean to be awestruck? Or more simply, what is awe? Backed by the latest scientific research, Klein sets out to define awe and its effects on health and happiness. For example, over the past dozen years, or so, scientists have found, among other things, that awe:

  • Connects us to others
  • Lowers our stress levels
  • Enhances positive emotions
  • Increases our compassion
  • Increases our creativity

Plenty of reasons to be in awe. With a sprinkling of the spiritual and scientific, The Awe Factor takes readers on an exploration of a human phenomenon. From research to first-hand awe-inspiring stories, Klein reflects on feelings of awe, meaning and purpose. And with bonus awe-awakening tools, tips, and techniques, he helps readers become more aware of, and increase, the awe and wonder in their life.

If you enjoyed books like Awe, In Awe, The Book of Delights, or The Book of Awesome, then you’ll love The Awe Factor.
