Pageturners (South) Monthly Meeting

February Book Selection:

Seven Thousand Ways to Listen - by Mark Nepo

"Mark Nepo is the F. Scott Fitzgerald of contemporary spiritual literature. Every line he writes contains a formidable, yet simple poeticism that strives for revelation. Each sentence exudes its own cathartic beauty… This beautiful book is a balm for anyone who is questioning the blows life has dealt them."

"Perhaps one of the most exquisite, poetic, and useful books ever written on this topic…. Every line, every phrase, every story is a poetic prayer coaxing the reader to listen and be listened to with more grace."

"Seven Thousand Ways to Listen is one of the most captivating, inspiring and poetic books in which you can immerse yourself. Every word takes one deeper into their most authentic and beautiful experience of being in the world… Whatever challenges you are encountering in your own life become doorways to a deeper and more profound experience of your own unique soul journey."

    I am surprised that a book that originally captured 11 votes (that's why it became one of our month's selections) was not at the end a favorite. Perhaps we were intent and concentrated on the journaling aspect instead of the messages. I found the book very insightful. My approach was to check the table of contents and I found the themes that attracted me. I think this is one of those books that one might get back to and find its meaning at a more leisure pace.

    Thank you - im sure it will be good for me we have such a nuce group of ladies but I still feel too raw inside- I did not enjoy this book as much as the prior onesr- it has beautiful thoughts and yes it makes you reflect on many things but I somehow was not captivated by it-- I will finish reading it though ...
