Discover the power and spirit of community both in our lives and in the world. Mark Nepo, poet, philosopher, and spiritual advisor, spent twelve years gathering stories and lessons of community from across cultures and history as research for his latest book exploring the universality of community. Just as humans can grow from facing challenges, communities come together in disaster. Because we are wired to care about each other for our wellbeing, community builds coherence. Mark concludes with the overall theme he discovered: that time and again, when fear makes a group of people think that self-interest will protect them, love and suffering affirm that we’re more together than alone.
