New York Times bestselling author of The Happiness Project discovers a surprising path to a life of more energy, creativity, luck, and love: by tuning in to the five senses.

Seeking a life of more energy, creativity, luck and love? Gretchen Rubin, the New York Times bestselling author of The Happiness Project, returns to our stage to share wisdom from her new book, Life in Five Senses. In this journey of self-experimentation, Rubin shares how she was lifted from a fog of preoccupation by rediscovering the power of her senses.  Drawing on cutting-edge science, philosophy, and literature, she investigates the profound power of tuning in to the physical world.

Gretchen Rubin is one of today’s most influential observers of happiness and human nature. Her books have sold more than 3.5 million copies worldwide in more than thirty languages. She hosts the award-winning podcast Happier with Gretchen Rubin, where she explores practical solutions for living a happier life. She’s the author of several books, including the New York Times bestsellers Outer Order, Inner Calm; The Four Tendencies; Better Than Before; and The Happiness Project.

“Right now, what the world needs most is people who have come to their senses—who have reunited with the power and wisdom of their bodies. Gretchen Rubin’s Life in Five Senses—woven with research, practice, and a compelling story—invites us into the seismic shift toward a life grounded in sensation, vitality, and innate intelligence.”—Glennon Doyle, New York Times bestselling author of Untamed and founder of Together Rising.
