A soul-searching meditation on the foundations that shape us, Like Streams to the Ocean is an essential guide for the crossroads of life.

In the busyness of the day-to-day, we rarely have time to think clearly about the questions that matter most: Who am I? What makes me, me? What do I stand for?

With the passion and clarity that made his debut, To Shake the Sleeping Self, a New York Times bestseller Jedidiah Jenkins explores the eight signposts we all face as we find our way in life: ego, family, home, friendship, love, work, death and the soul. In this soothing work, Jenkins reveals how we can find fulfilment in the people and places around us and discover the courage to show our deepest selves to the world.

A beautiful, attentively humane writer ... I couldn't put these essays down -- Thomas Chatterton Williams, author of Self-Portrait in Black and White Like Streams to the Ocean is as inviting, wide-ranging, and philosophical as an all-night conversation with a best friend, and as revealing and thought-provoking as the diary of a curious adventurer -- Sasha Sagan, author of For Small Creatures Such as We It's rare to find the level of honesty and authenticity that Jenkins brings to his audience. This is the type of storytelling the world needs more of -- Chris Burkard, award-winning photographer, author of At Glacier's End
