When was the last time you were stopped dead in your tracks, dumbstruck by your experience? When you walked away from that moment, what did you take away from it? And do you still hold that certain something in you, allowing it to spark and ignite other experiences of awe?
For Jason Silva, to be human is to have a taste for peak experiences, flow states, and mind-altering awe. Jason invites you to join him in becoming a “wonder junkie”—someone who not only appreciates the glory available in the everyday but who also seeks out awe as a personal path.
In Becoming Awestruck, Jason guides you through 11 chapters of video teachings, prompts for journaling and introspection, and his signature “Shots of Awe”—free-form video presentations from Jason introducing you to mind-opening new concepts and directing you toward your own definitions of the sublime.
Including two LIVE Q&A sessions, Becoming Awestruck is a course that demonstrates how to live life fully in touch with your senses and completely open to each new experience. If you feel apathetic, listless, or burned out—as if you’ve lost touch with the sense of wonderment you had as a child—Becoming Awestruck can get you back onto the path toward a life of joy and inspiration.
