Reduced to Joy, by Mark Nepo

This is the work of reverence: to stay vital and alive by listening deeply.

Mark Nepo, author of Reduced to Joy (Viva Editions 2013), was featured on Inspire Me Today for his insights into the lifelong process of cultivating openness to the messages of the universe. Nepo suggests that "It is only through great love and great suffering that we are exhausted of our differences until our hearts are opened to realize that we are at heart the same." His prose and poetry teach readers "how to uncover that original center and how to live there once it is restored."
