The Book of Awakening
The Book of Awakening 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 commonplace - 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.'
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 your looking for, see what's there. It's enough.'
'A year's supply of inspiration every day, and a perfect gift for yourself and your friends'. - Oprah Winfrey.
'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.
