When You're Falling, Dive Summary


When You're Falling, Dive: Using Your Pain to Transform Your Life by Mark Matousek

Do survivors of life's greatest trials possess a secret knowledge? Why do some people blossom through adversity while others fall apart? What mysterious power gets us back on our feet after we've been knocked down? The answer: viriditas, the power of drawing passion, beauty and wisdom from the unlikeliest places. In When You're Falling, Dive, Mark Matousek examines this remarkable phenomenon. Seeking advice from philosophical experts such as Eckhart Tolle, Jon Kabat-Zinn and Soyal Rinpoche, and well-known survivors, he brings 25 years of personal experience to the paradoxical question of how disaster can be used to awake and transform us. Matousek sifts through extraordinary testimonials - as well as recent breakthroughs in neuroscience - to demonstrate that we are, in fact, hard wired to evolve and adapt when faced with the impossible. It is humbling yet inspiring to be reminded that in our frailty rests the key to our greatest strength.
