Synopsis

Do survivors of lifes 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 weve been knocked down? The answer: viriditas the power of drawing passion beauty and wisdom from the unlikeliest places.In When Youre 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.
