Listening in the Dark breathes new life into an ancient wisdom by taking a fresh and powerful look at our relationship to intuition and how we can harness it to change our everyday lives and the world.  Have you ever had a feeling about something that you just couldn’t explain, but knew was right or wrong? Something that was telling you in your gut what decision to make, which direction to go in, or what to believe? For generations, women have been taught to ignore their intuitive intelligence, whether in their personal lives or professional ones, in favor of making logical, evidence-based decisions. But what if that small voice or deeper knowing was our greatest gift, an untapped power we could use to affect positive change? Edited by award-winning author, activist and actress Amber Tamblyn, Listening in the Dark is a compilation of some of today’s most striking women visionaries across industries—in literature, science, art, education, medicine, and politics—who share their experiences engaging with their own inner wisdom in pivotal, crossroad moments. Filled with deeply personal and revelatory stories by some of today’s greatest minds, Listening in the Dark will empower listeners to reconnect with their own unique intuitive process, to see it as the precious resource it is, and to be unafraid to listen to all that it has to say and all that it has to offer.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“This anthology isn’t just worth reading, it’s worth passing down to your own next generation.” Ashley C. Ford, New York Times bestselling author
“The stories in Listening in the Dark, ranging from lyrical to thought-provoking to laugh-out-loud funny, make a powerful case for trusting your gut. Intuition can save our lives—and even more than that, this brilliant collection argues, it can make our lives rich, fulfilling, and wholly, beautifully our own.” Claire Comstock-Gay, author of Madame Clairevoyant’s Guide to the Stars
“What it means to know yourself and listen to yourself feel like lifelong practices, illuminated by this thought-provoking collection. Listening in the Dark creates space for readers to ask and answer their own questions about what it means to trust yourself.” Rainesford Stauffer, author of An Ordinary Age
“This is a luminous collection of compelling and important stories about what it means to trust yourself. In a world that is increasingly dangerous to women and non-binary people, Listening in the Dark is a powerful reminder that sometimes intuition is our only protection.” Natalka Burian, author of A Woman’s Drink and co-founder of The Freya Project
“This gift of a book is for any woman—such as myself—who needs to be reminded why their gut instinct is the most powerful resource they have.”  Michele Filgate, editor of What My Mother and I Don’t Talk About
“We’ve been told to second-guess ourselves. To doubt what we know in our bodies, our bones. And here comes this book with its chorus of brilliant, badass writers and thinkers saying Enough. There’s enough brainpower in these pages to electrify whole cities. The answers are right there, pumping your own perfect heart.” Megan Stielstra, author of The Wrong Way to Save Your Life
