Product description

Review

"A meditative approach to silencing the world's noise.... Readers receive tools necessary to slow down and learn to listen in a deep, meaningful way.... Nepo provides through methods for reaching deeper into the inner self."--Herbert Mason, Professor of History and Religious Thought, Boston University, translator of Gilgamesh, A Verse Narrative "Kirkus"

A consummate master of telling stories and parables about people's hopes, dreams, yearnings, fears, sorrows and triumphs... Nepo has written a masterwork on the spiritual practice of listening.--Frederic and Mary Ann Brussat, Spirituality & Practice,

Mark Nepo has become one of my favorite spiritual teachers. His bestseller, The Book of Awakening, came to me by chance as a birthday present. I kept it by my bedside table for two years, dipping into it many, many times. More recently, Nepo's book Seven Thousand Ways to Listen: Staying Close to What is Sacred (Atria) has given me the opportunity to expand how I take in people, words, the world. I've loved being introduced, through Nepo's spiritual memoir, to the idea of really hearing, in ways I never have before.--Oprah Winfrey, The Oprah Magazine, November 2013, p. 98 "Booklist"

Mark Nepo is a Great Soul. His resonant heart--his frank and astonishing voice--befriend us mightily on this mysterious trail.--Naomi Shihab Nye, author of You and Yours, 19 Varieties of Gazelle: Poems of the Middle "Barnes & Noble"

Mark Nepo is one of the finest spiritual guides of our time.--Parker J. Palmer, author of A Hidden Wholeness and The Courage to Teach "Barnes & Noble"

Mark Nepo is... an insightful religious thinker and a decidedly credible voice of contemporary spirituality... an eloquent spiritual teacher.--Herbert Mason, Professor of History and Religious Thought, Boston University, translator of Gilgamesh, A Verse Narrative "Barnes & Noble"

Oprah Winfrey has said that the writing of Mark Nepo takes her breath away. She's not alone: His Book of Awakening and Finding Inner Courage have been word-of-mouth bestsellers in our bookstores and online. Seven Thousands Way to Listen, his latest effort, displays the deep synergy of his poetry and thought. His attentiveness to the natural lyricism of life is conveyed in language that is both memorable and profound. Both autobiographical and philosophical, this marvelous work teaches us to respond to the physical and spiritual challenges of life.--Frederic and Mary Ann Brussat, Spirituality & Practice, "Barnes & Noble"

This masterpiece on listening comes at a vital time when divisions in American run rampant around politics, race, and religion.--Debra Moffitt, BeliefNet, author of Awake in the World "Barnes & Noble"

Thought-provoking exploration of the art of listening. Nepo's background as a poet shines through in his writing, which can be truly beautiful.--Herbert Mason, Professor of History and Religious Thought, Boston University, translator of Gilgamesh, A Verse Narrative "Booklist"

""Listening is the doorway to everything that matters," claims Mark Nepo. In a world where we try to make ourselves known by making noise, that's a revolutionary claim. Revolutionary but true. Read this beautiful book and learn to listen anew--to those closest to you, to strangers, to nature, to your own heart, and to the great silence. Everything that matters is found on the other side of the noise, and this book, written by a master listener, can help us find our way to it."--Parker J. Palmer, author of Healing the Heart of Democracy, Let Your Life Speak, and A Hidden Wholeness
