Full Description

Embracing the Life of Growth and Transformation

“Each of us carries some wisdom waiting to be discovered at the center of our experience, and everything we meet, if faced and held, reveals a part of that wisdom,” teaches Mark Nepo. Flames That Light the Heart brings you into the company of the beloved poet and author for a rich conversation on the life of transformation and the heartwork that is required to be a spirit in the world.

Teachings and Practices for Making Sense of Our Experience

How do we listen to life and not to what life does to us when suffering and loss meet us at every turn? How do we make sense of our experience? “My offering here is to explore these challenges and introduce you to your own wisdom and gifts, to help you personalize the ways you can nourish the spark of life we each carry inside,” explains Mark Nepo. In 10 audio sessions, he explores the passages that open us, as well as the skills and ways of being that help us meet the difficulties that life brings us. Join him in this intimate conversation on our shared “growing pains of transformation” and the art of living “as an awakened part in an awakened whole.”
