The Book of Awakening: Finding What Matters in Working with What We're Given
“Mark Nepo is one of the finest spiritual guides of our time.” -- Parker J. Palmer
You can wake to the life you want, Mark says, by being present to the life you have. In this reflective and transformational gathering based on his New York Times #1 bestseller The Book of Awakening, you’ll explore the ongoing need to stay vital and in love with this life, no matter the hardships you encounter. By using ancient and contemporary stories, poetry, journaling, and dialogue, you’ll learn how to befriend your own stories and listen for your own wisdom. Topics will include “Being Kind,” “Meeting the World,” “To Know Someone Deeply,” “The Pain of Becoming,” “The Magic of Peace,” “Facing Sacred Moment,” and more. This workshop is an invitation to personalize the common and unrepeatable journey we all encounter in being human and to engage with profound and life-giving material that will deepen the way you perceive and relate to the world. “In this way,” Mark says, “our very lives are a book of awakening, just waiting to be read by our heart and lived on our path.”
Mark Nepo, a poet, storyteller, and teacher of the journey of inner transformation and the life of relationship, has recorded 11 audio projects and published 16 books translated into more than 20 languages, including The Endless Practice, Reduced to Joy, Seven Thousand Ways to Listen, The Exquisite Risk, and the forthcoming Inside the Miracle, in addition to his bestselling The Book of Awakening.
