Make Some Noise with Andrea Owen

The word “wonder,” gets used a lot around the holiday season. But have you ever stopped to think about how wonder shows up in your everyday life? Andrea Scher joins me this week for a conversation about how to live a more vibrant life full of wonder, presence, and connection.

Andrea is an artist, author, and life coach whose work is driven by her belief in the transformative power of creativity. She is also the author of Wonder Seeker: 52 Ways to Wake up Your Creativity and Find Your Joy. After having this conversation with Andrea, I am looking at the world a little bit differently.

In this episode you’ll hear: 

  • Andrea defines wonder and how it shapes her work and her life. (5:26)
  • We explore some of the memories of wonder that are potent in our lives. (7:08)
  • How wonder can be an antidote to anxiety. (14:22)
  • The difference between wonder and joy. (26:26)
  • The wonder of connection with others. (27:52)
  • What it means to be a wonder seeker and how we can grow our sense of wonder in our everyday life. (32:03)
  • Wonder is not about stepping over what is hard, it is being present with what is in front of you with compassion. (37:17)
