Seven Thousand Ways to Listen

Atria Books | October 8, 2013 | 288 pages

From the #1 New York Times bestselling author, “a consummate storyteller with a rare gift for making the invisible visible” (Publishers Weekly), this beautifully written spiritual memoir explores the endless ways we can listen for life’s deepest messages. Listening is the doorway to everything that matters. It enlivens the heart the way breathing enlivens the lungs. We listen to awaken our heart. We do this to stay vital and alive. Called “one of the finest spiritual guides of our time” (Parker Palmer, author of A Hidden Wholeness), Mark Nepo has inspired millions of people with his #1 New York Times bestseller The Book of Awakening. Nepo now offers this new book of practices that help us stay close to what is sacred as we overcome life challenges. In Seven Thousand Ways to Listen, Nepo explores the transformational journey with characteristic insight and grace. Maybe you are struggling with the loss of a loved one or you’re called to reawaken to your life’s purpose. For seekers at any stage in their spiritual journey, this book guides you to reflect on the life you are given through the many gifts of deep listening. A moving exploration of self and our relationship to others and the world around us, this book unpacks the many ways we are called to redefine ourselves and to name what is meaningful. Praised as “a meditative approach to silencing the world’s noise” (Kirkus Reviews) and a winner of the 2012 Spiritual Books for a Better Life Award, Seven Thousand Ways to Listen weaves a tapestry of deep reflection, memoir, and meditation to create a remarkable guide on how to listen to life and live more fully.
