Awe is good for you. We’re on a mission to help people discover the personal, social and environmental benefits of cultivating more awe and wonder in everyday life.

What’s it all about?

2018 marks the 50th anniversary of one the most important photographs ever taken; Earthrise a NASA image that provoked humanity to see itself and its place on Planet Earth in a whole new way.

To celebrate, Living Alive is offering a series of interactive talks and workshops at festivals, conferences, purpose-driven businesses and other venues around the UK; thought-provoking shots of perspective and inspiration, that use simple astronomy and stargazing as a focus, along with some engaging, practical tips for how to bring more awe and wonder into daily life.

Earthrise 50th anniversary

Awe is a power-for-good in the world. The emerging research shows that cultivating more awe in our lives can have hugely positive effects on our individual wellbeing, happiness, creativity, sense of purpose and social connection. Experiences of awe and wonder can help us collaborate better with one another, and remind us of what’s important and what it means to be a human being, living on this remarkable little planet called Earth, floating in the vastness of outer space.

Caught up in our busy modern world, spending more time indoors, in cities and online, there often isn’t much space left for reflecting on the ‘bigger picture’. At Living Alive we believe that taking the time to look at both our life and work from this wider perspective can have profound effects on the choices we make, for the benefit of both people and planet.

How to get involved

“Wow! This sounds amazing!
I’d love to host you at my event/business/venue.
What do I need to know?”

Living Alive’s #moreawe talks and workshops can last anywhere between 20 minutes and a full day. We can present as speakers on stage or combine with a ‘solarsystem walk’ outdoors for a more immersive and interactive workshop. We aim to create an experience of the cosmic perspective, that helps us grasp a sense of scale and a fresh appreciation for this ‘pale blue dot’ we call home every time.

The talk/workshop can take place inside, outdoors and at any time of day (no starry skies required!), and it’s suitable for all ages and many different contexts; be it at a festival, conference, community event or in the office.

Our #moreawe talks and workshops are adaptable and suitable to many audiences and environments. We especially enjoy working with organisations and startup/entrepreneurship events to share ‘How AWE inspires purpose-driven business’ and find that our ‘Awe, Wonder + Wild Stargazing’ interactive workshop works well with all ages and at outdoor events.
