The Original Loretta Brown Show

Lessons in the Art of Living!

Loretta Brown welcomes Mark Matousek & When You’re Falling, Dive: Lessons in the Art of Living!

Why do some people blossom through adversity while others fall apart? Author Mark Matousek examines this phenomenon by seeking advice from well-known survivors like Joan Didion and Isabel Allende and experts like Jon Kabat-Zinn to show how disasters can be used to awaken and transform us. From a Sudanese boy slave kidnapped at age seven to a Tibetan nun imprisoned by Chinese militia, Matousek sifts through extraordinary testimonies and recent breakthroughs in neuroscience to demonstrate how we are hardwired to evolve and adapt when faced with the impossible.

Mark Matousek is the award-winning author of seven books, including Sex Death Enlightenment: A True Story. His articles have appeared in The New Yorker and O: The Oprah Magazine. His latest book is When You’re Falling, Dive: Lessons in the Art of Living.
