Best-selling author, poet and philosopher Mark Nepo explains how battling cancer led to a profound spiritual awakening. In 1987, Mark discovered a lump on the back of his head and was eventually diagnosed with a rare form of lymphoma. While undergoing treatment, he embarked on a journey that would ultimately lead to his greatest life lessons and influence his later works. Now a two-time cancer survivor, Mark is the author of nearly 20 books, including the New York Times best seller “The Book of Awakening.”
In this two-part Super Soul podcast, Mark discusses his book "7,000 Ways to Listen" and shares why he believes listening with an open heart is the key to living a vibrant and meaningful life. Mark explains how modern-day distractions can keep us from truly connecting with the world around us, and offers practical insights on how to cultivate our listening skills.
