The Pilgrim who trained her Monkey

We all sometimes face big life questions: Who am I? Where do I want to go in life? How do I make the right decisions?

Amidst the wonderful scenery of the Wicklow Mountains, Marie ponders upon these questions. Between mountains, green meadows and blue mountain lakes, Marie engages in life conversations, while she encounters sheep, unusual people and a monkey that has to be kept in check. Based on neuroscience, Marie learns about what it takes to courageously take your life in your own hands to get the most out of it.

Three days that changed Marie’s life forever – lovingly illustrated by the author.

Terrific insights, must read!
I have been looking for a book to dive a little deeper into neuroscience as a non scientist and I am so
glad I found it. I will be recommending it a lot.
