About the Workbook

Wonder UpRising: Self & World Edition

Designed to ignite the profound inner wisdom that resides in each of us, the Wonder upRising: Self & World workbook is transformative when used as a personal practice, with a partner, with a group, and with family members. There are no right or wrong answers. This is a journey, after all, and no two are alike. Along the way lies the potential to develop the capacity to see in a new way – one that holds both you and the world around you with greater awareness and care.

About Wonder upRising

Wonder upRising calls upon us to wonder about and question the world around us, our collective values and our participation. What’s just? What is our culture telling me? Who wins and who suffers? What role am I playing in this? The journal works to spark curiosity and wonder and asks us to examine our institutions, processes, cultural norms and personal habits around issues of social and environmental justice.
Here are ways that the journal works:

  • It’s a bridge between mindfulness and social justice.
  • It encourages us to look outside ourselves and our own lives.
  • It helps us identify the water we swim in: where we live in the cultural landscape.
  • It helps us process trauma.
  • It expands our thinking and grows our capacity to wonder.
  • It questions our actions, habits and lifestyle.
  • It questions our privilege, our anthropocentrism, and equity in the world.

The authors, Carol Delmonico RN and Casey Davis, will host a virtual presentation for us on August 27th and on Sept 1st, we will host a virtual “Watch party” were we will see a pre recorded video online about how to use this journal.
