“The point of experience is not to escape life but to live it.” —Mark Nepo

Flames That Light the Heart brings you into the company of author and teacher Mark

Nepo for a rich conversation on the life of transformation and the heartwork that is

required to be a spirit in the world. The intention: To help you live with meaning, truth,

and kindness in your own personal way.

“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,”

explains Mark. Still, time exposes the story of our lives with its friction, wearing away

the film that covers our eyes and the calluses that guard our heart, till we can inhabit the

wonder waiting under the skin of everything.

How can we meet this process? How can we ready ourselves? Who and what do we listen

to along the way? 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, and through our time together to help you personalize the ways you can nourish

the spark of life we each carry inside.”

Flames That Light the Heart is an invitation to ten video sessions where Mark will

explore the passages that open us, as well as the skills and ways of being that help us

meet the difficulties that life brings us. Using ancient and contemporary stories, poetry,

journaling, and dialogue, Mark will explore what it means to be transformed by what we

go through and how to access the skills and inner resources for learning, growing, and

healing.

“Meaning, truth, and kindness are our constant teachers,” Mark explains. “They are

flames that light the heart with a burning quality we must endure in order to receive that

light.” 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.”
