    Description

    A peak-performance expert maps out a revolutionary new practice - hedonic engineering - that combines the best of neuroscience and optimal psychology. It’s an intensive program of breathing, movement, and sexuality that mends trauma, heightens inspiration, and tightens connections - helping us wake up, grow up, and show up for a world that needs us all.

    This is a book about a big idea. And the idea is this: Slowly over the past few decades, and now suddenly, all at once, we’re suffering from a collapse in meaning. Fundamentalism and nihilism are filling that vacuum, with consequences that affect us all. In a world that needs us at our best, diseases of despair, tribalism, and disaster fatigue are leaving us at our worst.

    It’s vital that we regain control of the stories we’re telling because they are shaping the future we’re creating. To do that, we have to remember our deepest inspiration, heal our pain and apathy, and connect to each other like never before. If we can do that, we’ve got a shot at solving the big problems we face. And if we can’t? Well, the dustbin of history has swallowed civilizations older and fancier than ours. 

    This book is divided into three parts. The first, Choose Your Own Apocalypse, takes a look at our current meaning crisis - where we are today, why it’s so hard to make sense of the world, what might be coming next, and what to do about it. It also makes a case that many of our efforts to cope, whether anxiety and denial, or tribalism and identity politics, are likely making things worse.

    The middle section, The Alchemist Cookbook, applies the creative firm IDEO’s design thinking to the meaning crisis. This is where the book gets hands on - taking a look at the strongest evolutionary drivers that can bring about inspiration, healing, and connection. From breathing, to movement, sexuality, music, and substances - these are the everyday tools to help us wake up, grow up, and show up. AKA - how to blow yourself sky high with household materials. And the best part? They’re accessible, by anyone anywhere, no middleman required. Transcendence democratized.

    The final third of the book, Ethical Cult Building, focuses on the tricky nature of putting these kinds of experiences into gear and into culture - because, anytime in the past when we’ve figured out combinations of peak states and deep healing, we’ve almost always ended up with problematic culty communities. Playing with fire has left a lot of people burned. This section lays out a road map for sparking a thousand fires around the world - each one unique and tailored to the needs and values of its participants. Think of it as an open-source toolkit for building ethical culture.

    In Recapture the Rapture, we’re taking radical research out of the extremes and applying it to the mainstream - to the broader social problem of healing, believing, and belonging. It’s providing answers to the questions we face: how to replace blind faith with direct experience, how to move from broken to whole, and how to cure isolation with connection. Said even more plainly, it shows us how to revitalize our bodies, boost our creativity, rekindle our relationships, and answer once and for all the questions of why we are here and what do we do know?

    In a world that needs the best of us from the rest of us, this is a book that shows us how to get it done.

    solid meh

    perhaps worth a read. listened to the audible. lots of metaphor. so much you will say "ah, yes, I get it" followed with another thing that you are supposed to feel the same about, but it's not necessarily true... the statement made. from nitrogen to BDSM, I'm not sure this was the book I thought it was going to be. I would title it, "friendly lectures of the outdoor coffeeshop smoke sesh from a person who knows a few interesting things, kindof." the thank you section at the end does wrap it up nicely. though my words are slightly harsh, what's true is this person wrote a book... that is not an easy thing to do. reading this book is better than scrolling through your social media, by far.

    This owner’s manual for the human spirit arrives with impeccable timing

    Jamie Wheal has written the soulful, insightful, and actionable book that our world so needs in this specific moment. Rich with mind blowing information, heart melting sensitivity and galvanizing purpose, Recapture The Rapture takes a sweeping inventory of the current state of the world and provides with brilliant guidance a plan of action. This book is a defibrillator for the dysfunction of the human heart and our ailing world.

    A thought provoking read. Belief sculpting.

    This is an amazing book that points in the direction of where humanity needs to be heading. For all the religious folks out there it’s a must read, but be ready to have your beliefs challenged. I believe this book will show anyone how to get closer to their gods than any preacher could. The only thing I believe this book could and probably should’ve included more of is the issues surrounding indigenous sovereignty especially in the America’s. It seems like this topic never gets brought up and I do not believe humanity can fully heal until we understand and integrate their pain fully into our culture. Regardless, I highly recommend and I hope everyone alive and breathing will reads this.

    Awesome Message

    Wow, Jamie nails a humanist version of what I know to be the essence of Christian Universalism, the prevailing belief system of the first 500 years of Christianity, now all but completely buried by man’s lust for power. Thank you Jamie for sharing your wisdom!

    Captivating and inspiring

    Wheal makes a compelling case for living a life that is far more than just status quo, that it is our duty.

    An Intellectual Playground for the Human Spirit

    A titillating and optimistic exploration of the human condition. Exploding with substance.
    Masterfully narrated.
    This book could be particularly helpful for one caught in the struggle between the pursuit of spiritual enlightenment while managing a mundane human life.
    Loved It! I think I’ll will immediately give it a second listen.

    interesting concepts i will be listening again

    very interesting concepts. i will be listening again, there is alot in this book to unpack. my only issue with the book, is author done research on alot of religions and cultures, African religions culture and contributions were obviously lacking from his knowledge base. when a book is speaking about the interconnected of us all, i would expect the author to be able to provide more culture relevant examples and scenarios that are not as eurocentric.

    Phenomenal book /audio and presentation!

    I am on my third reading of / listening to Recapture the Rapture. Remarkable material, perfectly researched and presented in a sequential, challenging and entertaining format. Brought me out of the grey days of Covid and back into the light with renewed hope for humanity in the One. Thank you, Jamie Wheal, and all who helped bring this into being.
