“Carol and Deb are quite simply delightful. Their kindness held the space for me to open up and be myself and share from the depth of my soul. All I can say, is wherever they go, they leave behind breadcrumbs that are filled with love and wisdom and kindness that leaves me longing to eat the whole loaf.”
– Daniel Bruce Levin
Our guest wrote a thought-provoking and heart-warming parable on the subject of connection—one of our favorite topics! We are talking with Daniel Bruce Levin, author of The Mosaic.
Daniel has led an extraordinary life. Daniel’s parents died when he was a kid, 2 years a part on the same day and, not surprisingly, these events had a huge impact on his life.
Early on, Daniel had the chance to work at a billion-dollar company and turned it down to hitchhike around the world. He instinctively knew that happiness and peace would not be found going the standard route.
Later, Daniel says that when he was one day away from becoming an ordained Rabbi in Jerusalem, he left to come back to the United States. He had a bookstore in San Francisco and then spent 10 years in a Monastery.
If that wasn’t interesting enough, he then became the Director of Business Development at Hay House where he grew the business exponentially.
Daniel is somewhat of a modern mystic and has a unique ability to see things from many perspectives. Today we’ll be talking with him about the power of listening, why nothing is as it seems, and of course his book, The Mosaic.

The Art of Listening with Special Guest Daniel Levin
i was sitting in my chair thinking about life when an email came in to me. the email was from Allison Sutter, a person i had never heard of before, and so it intrigued me to read the kind words she wrote first once and then again. she told me that while gathering information on a certain person, she choose to listen to this person’s podcast and the episode was one where i was the guest. what she said then truly amazed me and intrigued me; for she realized that she was no longer listening to the woman she was there to listen to, but that she was enthralled by me, the stories i told and more than that the vibration that was coming through me. and she asked me if i would be a guest on her podcast, a podcast up until this point had no guests.
it took me all of about 1 second to say it would be my honor to be on your show.
i loved meeting Allison and i loved the loved i felt from her and i encourage you to have a listen to this time we spent together. i this you will enjoy the Mosaic’ing of our own being. please share with me your thoughts as i so want to get to know you more.

What does it feel like when someone truly listens, and receives, you with their unconditional self?
Your entire body relaxes and your cares drip away. It’s the unicorn variety of listening where you know in your heart the person doesn’t need a list of accomplishments in order to view you as ‘worthy of their time’.
If you haven’t experienced being listened to in this way before, imagine it for just a moment.
What would that FEEL like for you in your body?
When I first heard Daniel speak, I found myself listening in a way I don’t usually. I leaned in closer (to the computer screen). I didn’t think about what I would say in response or even whether I agreed or disagreed with what he was saying. None of that seemed to matter at that moment in time while I was listening.
I simply followed the melodic cadence of this voice. There’s a catharsis of the art of listening. I was transported to a realm where love and hate were one and the same and wholeness was the flavor of the century.
Authentic, unconditionally, listening truly is an art form; we all could use some practice.
Before you read these show notes, I ask you to listen to the podcast first with a focus on expanding your awareness of how you feel. How does the energy feel in your body when you drop all pretenses and just listen?
What happens inside when you move out of your mental space and into your energy body?
Both Daniel and I would love to know what came up for you when you listened to this podcast. Leave us a comment. We will listen, unconditionally.
Daniel walked away from the opportunity to run a multi-billion dollar company to hitchhike around the world to find happiness and inner peace, studied 5 years in a seminary, and left 1 day before being ordained. He’s also lived as a monk in a monastery for 10 years. Daniel led the growth of hay house from 3 million a year in sales to 100 million a year in sales. He is a rare blend of businessman and mystic who loves to share the gift of connection and the power of listening with all of you.

thank you Allison Sutter!!!!!!!
i don’t know what it is, if it is my comfort level with podcasts now or that something has just changed, but these podcasts lately are really deep and really inspiring. Justin was a stranger, someone i had never met before, but our conversation went deep quickly and the stuff that came through was really beautiful. as her writes below, this was one of the best conversations he has had in some time.
sit back and relax and enter into this conversation with us and let me know what you feel. wishing you amazing moments.

DANIEL LEVIN ON THE POWER OF LISTENING | HUMAN TO HUMAN PODCAST | EP 27
Join us in episode 27 of The Human to Human Podcast, with Daniel Levin.
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 rare blend of businessman and mystic who sees what others do not see. It has been this one quality more than any other that has thrown him into some of the most exclusive boardrooms to help companies innovate new ways of finding solutions when the old ways stop working.
He is the author of The Mosaic, a life changing fable that invites people to listen to those others do not hear and to see the situations in their life differently.
Three things you will learn today:
– Everyone wants the same 3 things: to be loved and accepted; listened to and heard; and to be acknowledged and validated for what they believe.
– To create a revolution of listening where we learn to listen to one another.
– Nothing is as it seems. a change of perspective will change your entire life.
