This One Wild and Precious Life - Sarah Wilson

$39.00 AUD

Will you sleep through the revolution? Or do you want to wake up and reclaim your one wild and precious life?

We live in truly overwhelming times. The climate crisis, political polarisation, racial injustice and coronavirus have left many of us in a state of spiritual PTSD. We have retreated, morally and psychologically; we are experiencing a crisis of disconnection - from one another, from our true values, from joy, and from life as we feel we are meant to be living it.

Sarah Wilson argues that this sense of despair and disconnection is ironically what unites us - that deep down, we are all feeling that same itch for a new way of living. this one wild and precious life opens our eyes to how we got here and offers a radically hopeful path forward. Drawing on science, literature, philosophy, the wisdom of some of the world's leading experts, and her personal journey, Wilson weaves a one-of-a-kind narrative that lights the way back to the life we love. En route, she leads us through a series of 'wildly awake' and joyful practices for reconnecting again that include:

- Go to your edge. Do what scares you and embrace discomfort daily. Use it to grow into your Big Life.
- #buylesslivemore. Break the cycle of mindless consumption and get light with your life.
- Become a soul nerd. Embrace poetry, deep reading, art, and classical music to light up your intellect.
- Get 'full-fat spiritual'. How to have an active practice - beyond the 'lite' 'rainbows and unicorns' - and use it to change the world.
- Hike. Just hike. Walking in nature reconnects us with ourselves, and with our true purpose.
- Practise wild activism. If you can get 3.5 per cent of a population to participate in sustained, non-violent protest, change happens. We create our better world.

The time has come to boldly, wildly, imagine better. We are being called upon, individually and as a society, to forge a new path and to find a new way of living. Will you join the journey?


About the Author

Sarah Wilson is a New York Times bestselling author, former journalist and founder of IQuitSugar.com, Australia’s largest digital wellness site. Her latest project is Simplicious Flow, released in October 2018. At 348 recipes, this not-normal cookbook is the first zero-waste cookbook in the world. Her book first, we make the beast beautiful, a reframing of anxiety and bipolar disease as a philosophical and spiritual journey, sees her travel extensively talking to our collective need to dive deeper into what matters in life.

Sarah had her first business at 12, got her start in journalism redesigning the restaurant pages of a News Corp magazine on work experience (she taught herself Quark overnight; the editor gave her the reviewer job) becoming News Corp’s youngest opinion columnist at 24 was appointed Cosmopolitan editor at 29 and then hosted the first season of MasterChef, the most watched season of any show in Australian history.

In 2008, however, Sarah was struck down with thyroid disease, forcing her to step away from the whole merry-go-round. She set out to heal herself via experiments she shared online; quitting sugar was one such. An early adopter of technologies she developed an engaged online community ahead of the curve. She soon realised a gap in the market for a solution to the sugar problem…so she created the world’s first consumer quit program, initially as an e-book (she self-published her 8-week program), then as an online product.

Sarah’s a hyper-vigilant researcher and liaised with international biology and endocrinal experts to develop the most effective techniques for breaking fructose addiction. Some of the nascent science she surfaced has since informed the WHO’s nutritional guidelines and Sarah is regarded as an international pioneer in the realm. Her 8-Week Program was the world’s leading (if not only) consumer sugar-quitting program, completed by 1.5 million people in 113 countries, before she closed it in March 2018 for ethical reasons. She then gave all profits to charity. “I will continue to work diligently to not get caught up,” she said.

Sarah’s I Quit Sugar series of books (15 titles) sell in 46 countries, the first becoming a New York Times bestseller and winning the ABIA publishing award in 2014. She ranks as one of the top 200 most influential authors in the world (2017 and 2018), based on web and international book scan algorithms and in Greatist.com’s 100 most influential health experts in 2015. She was the winner of the EY Entrepreneur of the year 2017 Regional Award.

International orders continue to be impacted, If your package is delayed by more than 14 business days past expected arrival date, please open an enquiry with AUS Post directly.

Some domestic orders are being impacted and we are finding no rhyme or reason as to how delayed they are as some routes are the same as usual, and others are much much slower. We are finding that parcels going to WA, VIC, TAS and SA from Coffs Harbour are taking a longer amount of time, due to the length of distance along with the pressures of the postal system. 

Things you can do:

1. Always check your address is entered 100% correctly when placing an order to ensure it has a direct route to you

2. Track your parcel via the AusPost or Sendle

3. Enquire or contact AusPost or Sendle once a good few days has passed since your due date. Delays can be up to 14 working days at the moment I am finding (this doesn't include public holidays like Easter long weekend, Anzac Day etc)

Sending love, health and lightness. Soph xx
