This interview is with Andrew Forsthoefel, speaker, peace activist, and the author of the fascinating book Walking to Listen: 4,000 Miles Across America, One Story at a Time (Bloomsbury, 2017). Andrew’s narrative work has appeared on This American Life and The Moth, and he teaches walking and listening as practices in connective presence, personal transformation, and conflict resolution. He lives in Northampton, Massachusetts.
I loved reading Walking to Listen and it was an absolute pleasure to interview Andrew. If you are a sensitive creative, highly sensitive person or someone who is searching for a deeper connection with life, Andrew’s walk and his insights will resonate deeply with you. I learnt a lot from the book and this interview, and I think you will too.
