Boyd Varty is a South African lion tracker and life coach who I first heard on the Aubrey Marcus Podcast. His story and perspective on life, meaning, and the innate wild self truly inspired me on the podcast. This book is short and sweet and had me tearing up as I turned the final page.

A collection of profound, light-hearted, thought-provoking journal entries by the 19th-century transcendentalist, Ralph Waldo Emerson. I’ve kept this as a Kindle edition book so I may read it on my phone, when, on the train, or with a few minutes when I’d otherwise be scrolling Instagram. This book has brought tears to my eyes, love to my heart, and freedom to my spirit.
