About the Book

The Continuum Concept

Jean Liedloff, an American writer, spent two and a half years deep in the South American jungle with Stone Age Indians. The experience demolished her Western preconceptions of how we should live and led her to a radically different view of what human nature really is. She offers a new understanding of how we have lost much of our natural well-being and shows us practical ways to regain it for our children and for ourselves.

( From the back cover of the American edition. )

If you haven’t read the book...

Though not written as a child-rearing manual, The Continuum Concept has earned a reputation as an excellent resource for parents and parents-to-be who intuitively feel that the parenting “techniques” of the modern era are inherently misguided. It has also been helpful to many adults — parents and non-parents alike — who hope to recover the natural state of happiness lost as a result of the modern child-rearing practices of their (well-meaning) parents.

This website will provide enough information to give you a good idea of just what the continuum concept is and how to apply it to your life; but if you want to restore more fully your natural instincts — especially for parenting — we heartily suggest you get your hands on a copy of the book and let it transform your consciousness. Jean Liedloff’s writing combines vivid storytelling with articulate reasoning in such a way that it jars the reader’s mind free of the entrenched, “civilized” way of thinking which obscures the inner knowing of what she calls the continuum sense.

The Continuum Concept has been translated from its original English version into several other languages and has sold more than a million copies throughout the world. For the most part, the success of the book has been the result of readers not just recommending it to people they care about, but actually giving them the book as a gift. We’ve heard from readers who bought copies of The Continuum Concept by the dozen!
