The infinitely varied journeys of our lives share a common destiny: to be worn of all excess till we are reduced to joy. This audio learning program presents the latest work of poet-philosopher Mark Nepo in six profound sessions that invite us to the life-giving task of discovering and returning to what matters. From his most recent book "Reduced to Joy" (Viva Editions, 2013), Mark selects more than 40 poems that help us stay in relationship with the mystery of life and engage in conversation with Spirit. He shares the origins and context of each, points us toward the lessons they open, and offers practical inquiry to make each compelling verse personally relevant to the listener. "The reward for facing our experience is joy," Mark explains. "Often, what keeps us from joy is the menacing assumption that life is happening other than where we are." "Reduced to Joy" is meant to steady our connection to the greater life we are always in kinship with.
