Collection: Survival

The survival instinct is basic and powerful. People manage to endure all kinds of life-threatening situations, including dangerous accidents, natural disasters, war, and genocide. This audio story collection looks to survivors of harrowing experiences for insight into how such events affect the human body and mind, and how a singular uncontrollable event can impact the rest of a person’s life. These stories illuminate how survivors of dire circumstances must rely on their mental fortitude to move through the experience and, ultimately, beyond it.
