We believe that reading connects us to a world of new possibilities. We believe that conversation is a way to connect with others and amplify our own understanding and insights discovered. We believe reading can be a raft when the world is a sea.
What is the HIP?
Created as a way to help us imagine a new possible and supercharge our collective imagination, the HIP book club is an interactive book club---part discussion, part activity, and unlike any other book club you attended. For each book, we design activities to help you identify insights discovered during the reading, share them with others, and then apply those insights to daily life.
This Month's Book
We are reading Monica C. Parker's The Power of Wonder. As noted on Ms. Parker's Web site:
"The Power of Wonder takes readers on a multidisciplinary journey through psychology, neuroscience, philosophy, literature, and business to share some of the surprising secrets behind the mechanics of wonder and guides readers in bringing more of it into their lives. Readers will learn about the components and elicitors of wonder, and how it can transform our bodies and brains. From taking a daily “awe walk” to discovering a new and all-consuming interest in something you’d never given much thought to before, this book shows readers how to become more wonder-prone and reconnect with a reverence for the world and all the fascinating people in it."
How it Works
We will explore the book, discuss the tools, and then dive into the how connecting to a sense of wonder change the way you live, learn and lead though a series of activities inspired by the book.
Whether you've read the whole book, only a part of it, or or if it is just on your list to read, the HIP Book Club will provide access to the insights, ideas, and inspirations contained in this amazing book.
