Waking: A Memoir of Trauma and Transcendence by Matthew Sanford

Matthew Sanford’s life and body were irrevocably changed at age 13 when his family’s car skidded off a snowy Iowa overpass, killing Matt’s father and sister and leaving him paralyzed from the chest down. This pivotal event set Matt on a lifelong journey, eventually leading him to become a paralyzed yoga teacher and founder of a nonprofit organization. Forced to explore what it truly means to live in a body, he emerges with an entirely new view of being a “whole” person. In his memoir, Mr. Sanford delivers an unforgettable message about the endurance of the human spirit, and of the body that houses it. This book is beautifully written, shedding a light on the firsthand experience of surviving a devastating trauma and truly learning to live an authentic, empowered, and whole life.
