About the Book

Jenkins returns with LIKE STREAMS TO THE OCEAN, a collection of essays on the universal currents that run through our collective lives, and more importantly, the necessity of being still to sit and experience them. The result is a moving reflection on the hidden, sometimes difficult topics we must consider in order to live an authentic life—ego, family, home, friendship, love, work, death, the soul—for anyone seeking a companion on the road to understanding. Writing with the passion and clarity that made To Shake the Sleeping Self a book for the zeitgeist, Jenkins brings together new and old writings exploring these eight themes with vulernable moments from his own life—how he worked to mend a life-long rift with his brother, the stunning beauty of an off the grid rafting trip through the Grand Canyon, and his close relationship with his mother who doesn't affirm his sexuality. As he examines the experiences that shape us into who we are, Jenkins leads readers in a wide-ranging conversation about finding fulfillment in the people and places around us and discovering the courage to show our deepest selves to the world.

About the Author

Jedidiah Jenkins won acclaim from media, booksellers, and readers everywhere with his soul-stirring, New York Times bestselling debut memoir, To Shake The Sleeping Self. Illuminating and moving, Jenkins took readers on a powerful emotional and physical journey in its pages, starting with his upbringing as an Evangelical Christian and his struggle to “fix” his sexuality with his faith without losing his connection to either, and reaching thirty feeling more disconnected than ever. It was at that clutch moment when he threw caution to the wind and himself into the wild, beyond-ambitious dream to cycle 14,000 miles from Oregon to Patagonia, the endeavor that both healed him and “woke him up” to the wonder we so often fail to see.
