Bestseller Allen Klein Opens Eyes to the Wonder in Our Lives; Moderated by Irene O’Garden

April 13, 2021 @ 6:00 pm 6:30 pm EDT

Allen Klein, author of The Awe Factor, will be in conversation with fellow Mango author, Irene O’Garden, on Tuesday, April 13th at 6pm!

Event details (from event website) :

This book will show you how to escape the everyday ruts of life by opening your eyes to the awe and wonder around you.

The heart of the book is its amazing awe-related stories. But it also shares the latest scientific findings on the subject and its effects on our 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 level
  • Enhances positive emotions
  • Increases our compassion
  • Increases our creativity

With a sprinkling of the spiritual and scientific, The Awe Factor will take you on an exploration of a human phenomenon. And with bonus awe-awakening tools, tips, and techniques, the book will help you become more aware of, and increase, the awe and wonder in your life.
