Publisher's Synopsis

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 savour 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 Nepo's journey of the soul and will inspire others to embark on their own. He 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. "There was one book that transformed my life and that book is The Book of Awakening by Mark Nepo. The river of life is wide and the journey we make together is made so much more beautiful, important, and moving when our lives are linked by this book." -Jamie Lee Curtis, from the Foreword
