"Humankind has an intrinsic capacity for hope. This is not about expecting that life will give us what we want; rather it is an unshakeable faith in whatever happens and in our ability to respond to it positively. This type of hope is about coming from love instead of fear, generosity instead of scarcity, and connection instead of separation. Fundamentally, intrinsic hope is life's love for itself." --Kate Davies Please join us in the bookstore for a fun, informal, meet-and-greet and signing with Kate Davies, author of Intrinsic Hope.

Author Kate Davies presents Intrinsic Hope at Wenatchee River Institute. We are living in an era of crises and widespread feelings of fear, despair, and grief. Now, more than ever, maintaining hope for the future is a monumental task. Intrinsic Hope offers a powerful antidote to these feelings. It shows how conventional ideas of hope are rooted in the belief that life will conform to our wishes and how this leads to disappointment, despair, and a dismal view of the future. As an alternative, it offers “intrinsic hope,” a powerful, liberating, and positive approach to life based on having a deep trust in whatever happens. The author, a hopeful survivor, shows how to cultivate intrinsic hope through practical tips and six mindful habits for living a positive, courageous life in these troubled times. Whether working directly on ecological or social issues or worried about children and grandchildren, this book is for everyone concerned about the future and looking for a deeper source of hope for a better world.
