On May 8, Allen Klein (author of The Awe Factor) will join East West Bookshop to define “awe” and explain why it is important.
With a sprinkling of spiritual, scientific, and inspirational stories of awe moments, Allen Klein will help you learn what awe is and why it is important. In this fun and inspiring talk, you will discover tools, tips, and techniques to help you become more aware of and increase the awe and wonder that surrounds you.
Written by TEDx presenter, award-winning speaker, and best-selling author of The Healing Power of Humor, Allen will help you tap into the power and benefits of awe. He will cover five ways to get more awe in your life and how adding one little thing to your outings can lift your spirits.
Comedian Jerry Lewis has said that Allen Klein is “a noble and vital force watching over the human condition.” Klein (aka “Mr. Jollytologist”® and “The Ambassador of Light”) shows audiences worldwide how to use humor and positivity to deal with life’s not-so-funny stuff. He is an award-winning professional speaker, a TEDx presenter, and author of 30-plus books including The Healing Power of Humor, You Can’t Ruin My Day, and Embracing Life After Loss. His most recent book, The Awe Factor: How a Little Bit of Wonder Can Make a Big Difference in Your Life, was named “One of the Best Spiritual Books of 2020” by SpiritualityandPractice.com.
