    ITEM#: 2567625

    Philosopher-poet and cancer survivor, Mark Nepo opens a new season of freedom and joy--an escape from deadening, asleep-at-the wheel sameness--that is both profound and clarifying. His spiritual daybook is a summons to reclaim aliveness, liberate the self, take each day one at a time, and to savor the beauty offered by life's unfolding. Reading his poetic prose is like being given second sight, exposing the reader to life's multiple dimensions, each one drawn with awe and affection. The Book of Awakening is the result of his journey of the soul and will inspire others to embark on their own. Nepo speaks of spirit and friendship, urging readers to stay vital and in love with this life, no matter the hardships. Encompassing many traditions and voices, Nepo's words offer insight on pain, wonder, and love. Each entry is accompanied by an exercise that will surprise and delight the reader in its mind-waking ability.

    • Only daily meditation I've read daily all year!

      This is the only daily meditation book I've ever been able to keep up with because I wanted to know the authors thoughts for the day and felt the meditations valuable. I shared this, a favorite book, as a gift and it was a huge hit - my friend has read every day so far as well and anticipates continuing throughout the year!

    • The Book of Awakening

      Hearing Mark Nepo's incredible wisdom on XM radio, I rushed home to order his book. Kismet interceded, and it was waiting for me when I got home, compliments of a dear, dear friend! That, in itself, makes it special, but, in addition, page after page of this book of awakening is filled with the gift of a genius response to life. Optimism and truth filter through Nepo to the reader and there is just no getting around his amazing message to live in love and peace. This book makes a great gift for special people in our lives!!

    • Packed full of wisdom

      I was given Mark Nepo's book last summer. His writing captures our human struggle with compassion and perspective. Since that time I have read 3 of his poetry books and another book of essays. This book is a great gift for someone going through loss or transition!
