Over the past few weeks, I’ve had the pleasure of interviewing three wonderfully inspiring men for my Psychology Today blog, Ethical Wisdom. Speaking Truth to Power was the subject of my conversation with Peter Buffett, son of the famous billionaire. We spoke about the antidote to greed and the enigma of Trump. Read the interview here. Roger Housden and I discussed his new book, Dropping the Struggle:Seven Ways to Love the Life You Have, which offers an antidote to compulsion toward self-improvement. Read the interview here. And finally, I spoke with the wonderful poet and philosopher Mark Nepo about his new book, The One Life We’re Given: Finding the Wisdom That Waits in Your Heart. It explores how our hard work and authenticity ready us for meaning and grace in our lives, and how our sincerity and effort help us survive and thrive. Read the interview here. I hope you enjoy the pearls of wisdom each of these men shared.
I recently had the pleasure of talking to Mark Nepo for The Seekers Forum about his new book “Inside the Miracle: Enduring Suffering, Approaching Wholeness.” Mark Nepo is a poet and philosopher who has taught in the fields of poetry and philosophy for over forty years. His many published works include “The Book of Awakening,” a number one New York Times Best Seller. He devotes his writing and teaching to the process of inner transformation and the life of relationship. I spoke to him about gratitude, faith and the acceptance on the path of awakening. I hope you enjoy our conversation.
