Today’s guest is Danny Levin.  We had a great conversation about his life’s journey.  He brings so much life wisdom and advice to the episode.  He has an inspiring outlook on life and philosophy on how mankind can help better themselves and respect one another, especially our differences.


Daniel Levin walked away from an opportunity to run a billion dollar business, to find happiness and inner peace.

His life has been a combination of massive victories and incredible defeats.

He left the seminary one day before being ordained a Rabbi, and then became a monk for 10 years. He has practiced meditation for over 45 years. He has run a restaurant, a publishing house, a market, a meditation retreat, has owned and run a clothing company, a branding company and a coaching business.

He was the Director of Business Development at Hay House and led it’s growth from $3,000,000 to $100,000,000 in revenue over a 10 year time span. He started DbL, by branding “the most anticipated hotel opening of the year 2013” according to USA Today, The Andaz Maui @ Wailea Resort and Spa.

His fourth published book, The Mosaic. It is a fable about how to reconnect in a life that has experience disconnection. It is about seeing what we do not see and listening to those that no one listen to. Levin is a storyteller and the beautiful story he weaves touches the heart and soothes the soul.

I recently sat down with Daniel Levin, the author of “The Mosaic,” a wonderful book about a young boy’s search for heaven. In his quest, the boy, Mo, meets people who impart nuggets of wisdom on how to live a heart-centered life. As part of a larger vision for a better world, Daniel is starting a journey within the United States first to talk to and document his conversations with the voiceless in our society starting May 1, 2020. He believes that listening to the people whose voices are not heard will create bridges that connect ordinary people who can make extraordinary changes. We are proud and honored to have this conversation with Daniel and to support him on this journey and important project. Daniel was almost ordained a Rabbi in Jerusalem and left 1 day before his ordination, spent 10 years as a monk in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada Mountains, was the Director of Business Development at Hay House and played a big part in helping it grow from $3,000,000 to $100,000,000 over a 10 year period, and is an amazing story teller. I hope you enjoy the conversation.

Nov 20, 2019

In this episode, Devi chats with Daniel Bruce Levin of The Mosaic Podcast.  Levin walked away from an opportunity to run a billion-dollar business, to hitchhike around the world to find happiness and inner peace.

He studied in a seminary five years and left one day before becoming a Rabbi and he has lived as a Monk in a monastery for 10 years.

As Director of Business Development, he grew Hay House from $3,000,000 a year in sales to $100,000,000 a year in revenue. Levin is a rare blend of businessman and mystic who sees what others do not see.

He is the author of The Mosaic, a life-changing fable that is touching hearts everywhere; and the Creator and Visionary behind The Mosaic Swarm, a movement that gives voice to the voiceless and allows us to solve problems better. Faster. Smarter. Together.

Levin’s “Big Hairy Audacious Moonshot” is, as Buckminster Fuller said, to create a new paradigm that makes the old paradigm obsolete and end global suffering by eradicating problems that have existed far too long and should no longer exist.

Devi and Daniel discuss:

  • Daniel’s show mission and purpose
  • Daniel’s incredible calling
  • Listening to the voices of people
  • Allowing people to speak out
  • Daniel’s ability to open people up
  • The idea of compassionate listening
  • Authentically connecting with people
  • Giving people a chance to be real
  • Being acknowledged and validated
  • Feeling the vibration of what’s coming through
  • Intoxicating people’s minds
  • Being vulnerable as a human being
  • Enjoying each and every person you meet
  • Connecting with people in a whole new world
  • Knowing your purpose
  • How Daniel built his Mosaic swarm
  • Making your podcast purpose-driven
  • Helping other people know their purpose better

and more…

“Two heads are better than one”

Sure there are times when you need to be independent, but we all need other people to flourish in this world.

In this episode, Daniel Levin joins us and shares his insights on how the world could be a better place if we all worked with each other. We discuss how everything becomes easier when we band together and that we can breach limitations through unity.

If you want to start your 2020 on a positive note, this episode is a must for you.


  • Seeing things from different perspectives (00: 47)
  • Coming up with a business innovation (3:20)
  • What happens when we don’t listen to others? (4:45)
  • The effect social media has on how we see things (6:34)
  • Finding your tribe (8:30)
  • Believing in your own truths (10:16)
  • Understanding versus agreeing (12:07)
  • Finding true happiness (20:50)
  • The joy of living in harmony (24:32)
  • The power of the collective mind (30:05)
  • The sad reality of not working together (36:39)
  • The Mosaic: First Edition to the current version (38:31)

Daniel Bruce Levin walked away from a huge opportunity (to work his way up from pushing a broom to running a billion-dollar business), to hitchhike around the world to find happiness and inner peace. His life has been dedicated to finding the peace and contentment that comes from truly knowing yourself. His mission has become holding the space for others to find that peace too.

He became the Director of Business Development at Hay House and played a big part in helping it grow from $3,000,000 to $100,000,000 over the next 10 years. He is the author of THE MOSAIC, a beautiful fable that touches the heart and soothes the soul, but to this day, he feels he is not the author. He knows it was the characters of the fable that actually wrote this story.

DO YOU TRULY LISTEN?  We all would like to think we are very good at listening to others.  Most of the time, myself included, we tend to listen to response instead of just listening.  When we listen to respond we are already thinking about what we will say once the person finishes talking.  This does not allow us to truly listen to what they are saying through their words, tones, and body language. We miss out on a lot of information when we are busy thinking about ourselves and our responses.  This also happens in our own lives when we don’t truly listen to what is going on around us.  We need to learn to listen to ourselves just as much as to others.  Once we improve this ability doors will be opened to us to improve our lives and the lives we touch.  In Episode 10 of Pencil Leadership we talk to Daniel Levin who has been a monk, mystic and author who will explain and guide us through truly listening.

So if you’re ready; take out your pencils and let’s begin!
