Listening without an agenda is difficult. Try doing that when walking 4,000 miles across America. I love walking, but that’s something else.
Andrew Forsthoefel takes things to another level.
Today’s guest walked the distance armed with a message: Walking to Listen. He is speaker, writer, and peace activist, currently living in Massachusetts while making a difference in the lives of those around the country and the world.
What makes this episode extra special is because he’s the second author of a book I read that has agreed to come on and share their story! The first was TED Talk speaker Elizabeth Pisani. She spent a year on her own traveling Indonesia in order to write her book.
There seems to be a trend here…
In Today’s Episode:
- Why bother listening?
- The purpose of poetry even when you see none.
- Being a white guest amongst Native Americans
- Redefining the idea of love
- And much more!
Where to find Andrew
Personally, I really recommend reading his book. That’s how I found out about him in the first place! More importantly his book is a journey and you get to actually be there right with him as events are unfolding.
The amount of patience and love Andrew has is astounding.
