From the multi-award-winning performer, author, and activist, a comprehensive program for addressing mental and physical health—and encouraging communities to do the same—featuring a conversation between the author and Lauren Von Der Pool, “…one of the people who has played an important part in my journey,” and original music transitions created for the audiobook by Common (vocals), Burniss Earl Travis II (electric and upright bass), Marcus Strickland (sax), James Francies (Fender Rhodes, piano, synthesizers, vibraphone) and Marcus Gilmore (drums).

Common has achieved success in many facets of his life and career, from music to acting to writing. But for a long time, he didn’t feel that he had found fulfillment in his body and spirit.

And Then We Rise is about Common’s journey to wellness as a vital element of his success. A testimony to the benefits of self-care, this book is composed of four different sections, each with its own important lessons: ""The Food"" focuses on nutrition. ""The Body"" focuses on fitness. ""The Mind"" focuses on mental health. And ""The Soul"" focuses on perhaps the most profound thing of all—spiritual well-being. 

Common’s personal stories act as the backbone of his book, but he also wants to give his readers the gift of professional expertise. Here, he acts as the liaison to his own nutritionist and chef, his own physical trainer, and his own therapist, as well as to those who act as his spiritual influences.

Wise, accessible, and powerful, And Then We Rise offers a comprehensive, holistic approach to wellness that will allow readers to transform their thinking, their actions, and, ultimately, their lives.

Supplemental enhancement PDF accompanies the audiobook.
