Listening Is A Personal Pilgrimage
with Mark Nepo
Program 3490

Poet, spiritual thinker and author of Seven Thousand Ways to Listen, Nepo explores the many ways that deep listening is a matter of being changed by leaning into all we don’t understand. Intuitive listening requires us to still our minds until the beauty of things older than our minds can find us. He describes this kind of listening as “a process by which what matters moves between us.”

Aging: A Tender And Ferocious Time
with Sherry Ruth Anderson, Ph.D.

This is a deeply personal and moving conversation.

A Mother’s Journey In Exploring Transgender Issues
with Paria Hassouri, M.D.
Program 3717

Hassouri goes through the reactions of shock, resistance, grief, acceptance, and finally pride when her 13-year old child tells her that she is transgender.
