Overview

In this ground-breaking new book, teacher, counsellor, and philosopher Mark Hawkins reveals a whole new understanding of boredom. Society teaches us that boredom is negative and something to be avoided. In this age of distraction, it is so easy to fill our boredom with work, activities, and quick entertainment. But avoiding boredom prevents us from using it to create a life full of meaning and purpose. Mark gets to the core of why boredom is the most powerful human emotion. Drawing from psychology, philosophy, and personal experiences, Mark shows us that boredom can be seen as spaces in time containing pure creative potential available for self and life transformation. Along the way, Mark provides a perspective of boredom that can sometimes be counter-intuitive. For example, why busy people may, in fact, be the most bored, and why filling your boredom with the wrong things can actually create more of it. It's time to stop distracting yourself from life and start living it.
