The Book of Awakening

Having the Life You Want by Being Present to the Life You Have

Read by Mark Nepo

About The Book

“A year’s supply of inspiration every day and the perfect gift for yourself and your friends.”

Oprah Winfrey

 

The Book of Awakening by poet and teacher MARK NEPO provides small doses of what really matters, simple truths and stories from everyday lives, plus inspiration from the great wisdom traditions. Each day’s entry is accompanied by simple, yet profound, practices designed to help us live the life we want by being present to the life we have. For, in the words of St. Francis of Assisi,

 

“YOU ARE THAT WHICH YOU ARE SEEKING.”

 

“Each entry in this capacious and tender daybook widens both the eyes and the heart.”

—Jane Hirschfield, author of Nine Gates and After

 

A daily guide for authentic living in hard times, The Book of Awakening is a book to keep your head high, your heart open, and your feet on the ground. “It is true,” Nepo writes, “If you can’t see what you’re looking for, see what’s there. It is enough.”

 

“Mark Nepo has written a beautiful book about life, informed by the shadows of death. I’ve been blessed and humbled by reading his words.”

—Marianne Williamson
