Seven Thousand Ways to Listen : Staying Close to What is Sacred Paperback


In Seven Thousand Ways to Listen, Nepo offers ancient and contemporary practices to help us stay close to what is sacred.

In this beautifully written spiritual memoir, Nepo explores the transformational journey with his characteristic insight and grace.

He unfolds the many gifts and challenges of deep listening as we are asked to reflect on the life we are given.

A moving exploration of self and our relationship to others and the world around us, Seven Thousand Ways to Listen unpacks the many ways we are called to redefine ourselves and to name what is meaningful, as we move through the changes that come from experience and ageing and the challenge of surviving loss.

Filled with questions to reflect on and discuss with others, and meditations on how to return to what matters throughout the day, this enlightening book teaches us how to act wholeheartedly so we can inhabit the gifts we are born with and find the language of our own wisdom.

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.
