The Well of Being, from Jean-Pierre Weill, is an illustrated inquiry into the art of happiness and what it means to be radically alive in our daily moments. Images and a graceful philosophic text invite us to awaken from our constructed stories that we may return to this world and live in the present. The book opens with a perennial account of life's ultimate purpose and concludes with a unique retelling of the puzzle we call growing up. Through art, philosophy, and poetry we are offered a refreshing and empowering way to rethink ourselves. The book is an experience to be felt.
