“Deep down, I know there is something in me that needs a sea of humanity around me — a certain frenetic energy — to feel at ease.”

— Alex Eggerking

 

We often hear about people escaping to nature as an antidote to stress.

The world is hectic, our lives are busy, and quiet places can help us find some inner peace. Or so we’re told.

But what if it isn’t so simple for everyone? What if some people need busier urban environments — and not just for the career opportunities, or the lifestyle, or the conveniences they afford — but in order to feel at peace?

This episode draws us into one woman’s realization that living in a big city — a place that assaults your senses every time you walk outside — a place where the concept of ‘outside’ is about as far removed from nature as it gets — might be just what her soul has been searching for all along.

Alex Eggerking tells her story.
