About the Book:
Listening in the Dark breathes new life into an ancient wisdom by taking a fresh and powerful look at our relationship to intuition and how we can harness it to change our everyday lives and the world.
This remarkable anthology includes essays from Jessica Valenti, Lidia Yuknavitch, Jia Tolentino, Samantha Irby, Meredith Talusan, Congresswoman Ayanna Pressley, Amy Poehler, America Ferrera, Ada Lim n, Huma Abedin and many others, who all share how intuition has helped to shape and alter their life choices.
Have you ever had a feeling about something that you just couldn't explain, but knew was right or wrong? Something that was telling you in your gut what decision to make, which direction to go in, or what to believe? For generations, women have been taught to ignore their intuitive intelligence, whether in their personal lives or professional ones, in favor of making logical, evidence-based decisions. But what if that small voice or deeper knowing was our greatest gift, an untapped power we could use to affect positive change?
Edited by award-winning author, activist, and actress Amber Tamblyn, Listening in the Dark is a compilation of some of today's most striking women visionaries across industries--in literature, science, art, education, medicine, and politics--who share their experiences engaging with their own inner wisdom in pivotal, crossroad moments.
Filled with deeply personal and revelatory essays, Listening in the Dark will empower readers to reconnect with their own unique intuitive process, to see it as the precious resource it is, and to be unafraid to listen to all that it has to say and all that it has to offer.
