Welcome. I hope this finds you safe and well during these very trying times, when we are being challenged to give more attention than ever in both directions at the same time—into our souls and into the world. We are being asked to have love move as quickly as disease, to have give move as quickly as take, and to have light move as quickly as dark. In the midst of all this, I’m blessed to have a new book, The Book of Soul: 52 Paths to Living What Matters coming out in May 5, 2020 from St. Martin’s Essential Books. This book has been a great teacher to me in retrieving it. It explores our struggle to inhabit the soul on Earth through a messy human life, and how underneath our differences, we can be who we are everywhere and create a path to what matters. It remains a humbling journey and the older I get, the more I search for what I have in common with all life, which when honored and listened to, paradoxically, affirms my uniqueness as a singular soul evolving here in time. During this time, I will be giving online readings, talks, and workshops about these perennial issues, drawing on themes and questions from several books, including The Book of Soul. I hope we can journey together somewhere along the way. In the meantime, many blessings to you in facing what’s before you and to more deeply discovering what you are being called to.

—Mark

 


During these trying times, I have been exploring online teaching and just finished my first weekend retreat online and was surprised how intimate and meaningful it can be. It can never replace being in person together but it is authentic and very possible. So, moving forward, I am preparing all my events in both an in-person format and a virtual format. Then, as each event approaches, we can decide which is the safest way to gather. I believe it’s important to stay connected and to keep growing in place in whatever way we can. I remain committed to our journey together. Stay safe and be well.
Many blessings,
Mark

MARK’S NEW BOOK

THE BOOK OF SOUL: 52 PATHS TO LIVING WHAT MATTERS,

WILL BE PUBLISHED BY ST MARTIN’S ESSENTIAL BOOKS

MAY 9, 2020

Available on Amazon

Available on Indiebound

“Mark Nepo has long been one of my favorite spiritual writers, and The Book of Soul is further proof why. It’s filled with breathtaking lines you’ll want to linger over, commit to memory, and carry with you.”
—Melinda Gates, New York Times Bestselling Author of The Moment of Lift  

In his latest book, The Book of Soul, Mark explores our struggle to inhabit the soul on Earth through a messy human life, and how underneath our differences, we can be who we are everywhere and create a path to what matters. After being born physically, we unfold within a second womb, meant to incubate our better angel. The second womb is an experiential one that, through the labor of a lifetime, births the soul on Earth. This book delves into that process of transformation in its mystery, difficulty, and inevitability. It is designed to be entered a chapter each week over the course of a year, so you can weave your inner reflection into your days, letting one inform the other. Our journey from innocence to experience is how we emerge from the second womb. The sections of this book mark the passages we all face in moving through this experiential unfolding: enduring our walk in the world, until we discover our true inheritance, which lets us live in the open by widening our circle, until we help each other stay awake. About the book, Mark says, “It seems the purpose of suffering is to exhaust us of our differences, and the purpose of love is to awaken us to how we’re at heart the same. Then, we discover that the temple is the world. Still, every life, every generation, every age takes its turn at pushing each other away, only to be loved and worn back to the one tribe we belong to. This seems even more relevant in our tense, modern world. For there is no they. We are they. We are each other. And there’s a Unity that always waits below our righteousness and insistence that we know the way.”

_____________

It’s easy in these times to allow ourselves to slip into resignation, isolation, or despair. The Book of Soul is an antidote, a path that leads us back to our own wisdom and intuition and to the authentic truth of our souls.

—Arianna Huffington, Founder & CEO, Thrive Global and Founder, Huffington Post

 

Mark Nepo’s The Book of Soul is like finding manna in the desert. I began reading it and instantly got chills. And a profound sense of relief. Read this book and be refreshed.

—Christiane Northrup, MD, New York Times Bestselling author of Women’s Bodies, Women’s Wisdom, The Wisdom of Menopause, and Goddesses Never Age

 

I love all Mark’s books because of his deep insights and his amazing way with words, but there’s something truly special about this one. It feels like a compilation of the best and most profound ideas from his work. I want to savor each and every chapter.

—Katy Koontz, Editor, Unity Magazine

 


THE 20th ANNIVERSARY EDITION OF

THE BOOK OF AWAKENING

WITH A NEW FOREWORD BY JAMIE LEE CURTIS

Available on Amazon

Available on Indiebound

• SELECTED AS ONE OF OPRAH’S ULTIMATE FAVORITE THINGS

• #1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER, MORE THAN 1 MILLION COPIES SOLD

• TRANSLATED INTO MORE THAN TWENTY LANGUAGES

“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

“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

“Mark Nepo is a true poetic empath, taking us on a 365 day-by-day journey. And no matter what day, or whatever you’re going through—like magic—you will find his words will speak to your exact situation, which at that moment instills in the reader an instant feeling of lightness, solace, warmth, and understanding. Pick this book up, again and again and again, and it will do the same for you.” —Steven Tyler

“Mark Nepo’s writing creates echoes in our hearts of what is true and of what we most cherish. Keep The Book of Awakening close by, and dip in whenever you want to nourish yur spirit.” —Tara Brach, author of Radical Acceptance and Radical Compassion

It’s hard to believe it’s been twenty years since this was first published. In all that time, I have been humbled by the many ways this book has been embraced. More importantly, the vastness it points to remains an irrepressible resource, available to everyone. I began writing the first entries for the book in 1997. Early on, an old friend asked if I could share them through email. That slowly led to a weekly sharing that went quietly for years all over the world, from London to India to South Africa. In 2000, the book began its journey in print. And in 2010, the book was kindly given to Oprah Winfrey as a birthday present, and her deep connection and kind support propelled the book to become a #1 New York Times bestseller. It has since been translated into more than twenty languages and is now in its fifty-sixth printing, having reached more than a million readers. I’m often asked what I’ve learned myself from The Book of Awakening. It is this: that when wholehearted and true, we are a sturdy conduit for love and care to keep the world going. If I had to guess, I think this book has touched so many because it is a drink of water from the ocean of love and care. I am ever grateful to have come upon it and to have been transformed for retrieving it.  —Mark

 


MARK’S NEW BOOK ON THE LIFE OF EXPRESSION, DRINKING FROM THE RIVER OF LIGHT, WILL BE PUBLISHED BY SOUNDS TRUE, SEPT 3, 2019

“A passionate testament to the spirituality of expression.”
—Publishers Weekly

“I cherish the wisdom and embrace the practices offered in this luminous book.”
―Mirabai Starr, author of Caravan of No Despair and Wild Mercy

In his 21st book, Mark Nepo, the acclaimed poet-teacher, and NY Times #1 best-selling author of The Book of Awakening, presents the art and practice of expression as a means to unfold our spiritual growth. Whether we consider ourselves artists or not, he explores how the deeper we go into the creative process, the more attuned we become, and the more we join with everything around us. Whether your writing is published or not, whether your music is recorded or not, whether your art is in a gallery or not, your garden is given a prize or not, or your cooking is or isn’t featured in the local paper—inhabiting a personal life of expression is its own reward, by which we strengthen our connections and find our way. Filled with stories and exercises intended to introduce readers to the skills of vision, perception, feeling, and articulation, Drinking from the River of Light is a culmination of all Nepo’s years of writing and teaching regarding the deeper creative process.

Praise for Drinking from the River of Light

“This beautiful book is a gift on the journey of awakening.”

“This new offering by a spiritual virtuoso of our era will help you find the way.”
—Parker J. Palmer, author of On the Brink of Everything, Healing the Heart of Democracy, and Let Your Life Speak

“This wonderful book is a deep dive into the universal art of self-expression, exploring how to give voice to our deepest, most original self. Candid, rich, and consistently profound. I loved it.”
—Mark Matousek, author of Sex Death Enlightenment and When You’re Falling, Dive

“This is a book of refined wisdom, insight, and great reminding. Crack the spine of this gem, drink fully, and as Whitman advised, go forth to ‘Sing the body electric!’”
—Albert Flynn DeSilver, author of Writing as a Path to Awakening

“In Drinking from the River of Light, Mark Nepo’s words land like dew on a thirsty leaf. I couldn’t put it down and drank every word in it.”
—Zainab Salbi, author of Freedom Is an Inside Job

“Mark Nepo commands language with a fierce truth that is difficult, if not impossible, to turn away from.”
—Richard Frankel, Indiana University School of Medicine

Things That Join the Sea and the Sky was a 2017 Nautilus Book Award Winner

 

THINGS THAT JOIN THE SEA AND THE SKY CITED BY SPIRITUALITY & PRACTICE AS ONE OF THE BEST SPIRITUAL BOOKS OF 2017

In Things That Join the Sea and the Sky, Mark shares bare and honest reflections drawn from over fifty years of journals. This thematic non-fiction reader is comprised of 145 entries gathered and shaped over the last fifteen years. The book takes the reader through seventeen sections organized around archetypal thresholds we all face, including “Stopping the Noise,” “Unraveling Our Fear,” “The Gift of Deepening,” The Practice of Relationship, The Reach of Kindness, and “The Radiance in All Things.”

Of the book, Mark says, “These pages are field notes on living, a travelogue of my conversation with the Universe, a mix of inner reflections, questions, and stories that have come to teach me how to be here. They contain raw moments of sinking and being lifted, intimate accounts of being thrust into feeling and depth, my stretching and wondering about my life and the lives of others in this ongoing push and pull with a Universe that holds us, then tosses us about, only to hold us again. Under every piece, I hope you feel the common song we’re born to sing in our unique and very human way.”

At the end of the book, Mark shares an essay about the nature and gift of journaling, followed by journaling guidelines, and 100 journal questions to work with. All to encourage the reader to engage in their own conversation with the Universe through the art of journaling.

“A rich source of comfort and courage for anyone who opens it.”
Publishers Weekly

“Written with the simplicity of a Koan, Nepo’s short writings say everything there is to say about recording the hidden wonders of the world around us.”
—Retailing Insight

“Open this book. Read the table of contents. And let the magic and promise of this offering invite you into the depths of your own humanity. Allow the poetic soul of Mark Nepo to guide you. And then keep this guide on your nightstand as an oracle and a roadmap for living well. This book is pure gold.”
—Christiane Northrup, New York Times best-selling author

“This book offers itself to you like an intimate conversation with a dear friend. Enjoy the beauty and the deep dives into life’s varied meanings and mysteries.”
—Sharon Salzberg, author of Lovingkindness and Real Love

“Mark Nepo’s vulnerable and generous-hearted sharing from the depths of his inner explorations is irresistibly readable, reminding us of the importance of staying with ourselves unconditionally, trusting the moment-by-moment experiences that lead us to our awakening.”
—Michael Bernard Beckwith, author of Life Visioning

 

In celebration of Things That Join the Sea and the Sky: Field Notes on Living, Mark reads “Stopping the Noise”:

The Way Under The Way was a 2016 Nautilus Book Award Winner

The One Life We’re Given was a Finalist for 2017 Books for a Better Life Award

I’m humbled and excited that The One Life We’re Given was a finalist for the 2017 Books for a Better Life Award. This is the fourth time I’ve been blessed to be a finalist: with The Book of Awakening in 2001, Inside the Miracle in 2016, and winning with Seven Thousand Ways to Listen in 2013. BBLA is such a fine group of giving people that this means all the more. Also, my good friend Elizabeth Lesser won with her moving memoir, Marrow.
—Mark

The One Life We’re Given and The Way Under The Way are cited by Spirituality & Practice as two of the best spiritual books of 2016

The wisdom presented on the shining pages of this holy book (The One Life We’re Given) is another luminous gift from a gallant, grateful and imaginative spiritual master.
—Frederic and Mary Ann Brussat, Spirituality & Practice (see full review)

“A spiritual teacher’s conversation with the Universe through tough and tender poems, The Way Under The Way is the first large collection of Mark Nepo’s poetry. It is a robust and spiritually revelatory volume of 217 poems. What touches us most about these poems is the way they testify simply and humbly to Nepo’s experience of the Divine.”
—Frederic and Mary Ann Brussat, Spirituality & Practice (see full review)

 


one-life-givenTHE ONE LIFE WE’RE GIVEN: FINDING THE WISDOM THAT WAITS IN YOUR HEART (ATRIA, JULY 2016)

This new book affirms how precious this one life is and opens the chance we have to be fully alive and to be of use to each other and the world. Through personal stories of joy and grief, friendships and challenges, I try to illuminate how the life of the soul is shaped and crafted every day. I offer reflective questions and meditations to help make sense of our own experience and appreciate each moment. In truth, we learn to shape our perspective as a woodworker might carefully shave a piece of wood to reveal its inner grain. And throwing ourselves wholeheartedly into what we’re given brings us alive—whether we must deal with suffering, pain, fear, and loss, or surprise, beauty, love, and wonder. Each becomes an opportunity to listen more deeply to our feelings, to deepen our connection with others, and to sense the sacred nature of ordinary things.

As we discover for ourselves the lessons of our journey, we are led to the wisdom that waits in our heart, the inner knowing of what truly sustains us—feeling, loving, and connecting—which allows us to fully live the one life we’re given.

I confess that working with you as readers and students is a path I am devoted to. This path is a continuous inquiry into what it means to be human, to be here, and to care for each other. My hope is that you will deepen your conversation with life. That through your own path of obstacle and surprise, you will be opened to your gifts and become somewhat freed of all you carry. My hope is that this book will support you in becoming skilled at living with both effort and grace.

“Mark Nepo is someone who walks through this confusing and sometimes dark world holding up a lantern and lighting the way. I can say with all certainty that I would follow this man anywhere his words want to take us.”
—Elizabeth Gilbert, author of Eat, Pray, Love and Big Magic

“Mark Nepo is one of our national treasures.”
—Rev. Ed Bacon

“This book is a powerful guide to being in the world.”
—Arianna Huffington


The Way Under The Way-Nepo-Final CoverA MAJOR COLLECTION OF MARK’S POETRY, THE WAY UNDER THE WAY: THE PLACE OF TRUE MEETING, IS NOW AVAILABLE FROM SOUNDS TRUE

This collection contains three separate books of poetry, gathering 217 poems retrieved and shaped over the past twenty years. The first two books in this collection, Suite for the Living and Inhabiting Wonder, bear witness to the messy and magnificent journey of being human. First published in 2004, they were wonderfully received and sold out of their first editions. Evolving these books further, Nepo has integrated fifty-eight new poems. The third book in this collection, The Way Under the Way, gathers eighty-three of his most recent poems. It centers on the place of true meeting that is always near, where we chance to discover our shared humanity and common thread of Spirit.

About poetry, Mark says, “The poems are the teachers. They arrive with their wisdom and become my guides. What they surface becomes my inner curriculum and by staying in conversation with them, I grow. We’re all drawn to what we need to learn, which if engaged with honesty reveals insights common to us all.” Of the books, he says, “My hope is that the arc of these poems will be aids in living, listening, and beholding each other. I offer them as small wonders found and cared for through the years.”

“Mark Nepo’s poems are like rare wine that directly nourish the soul. These are stories of the heart,
of brokenness that heals, of grief that awakens us to joy.”
—Llewellyn Vaughan-Lee, Ph.D., Sufi teacher and author

“When I read Mark Nepo’s luminous, meditative poems, one word stands tall in the mind and silence that follows—BEFRIEND.
He does not avert his eyes from the difficult moment or the lost hour. He stays steady to feel the magnificence again.”
—Naomi Shihab Nye, author of Words Under the Words

“In this magical book, Mark Nepo ushers us to the depth of who we are and where we truly live.
His words, like pearls for the Human soul, awaken us and transform the ordinary into the mystery of our being.”
—Agapi Stassinopoulos, Author of Unbinding The Heart

On his way to Maui to meet Oprah, Mark wrote a poem about their meeting on an island with such an ancient and beautiful bamboo forest. Oprah and the Super Soul Sunday crew created this amazing video of the bamboo forest with Oprah reading Mark’s poem. Watch it here.

Paia, a Clearing

in the Forest

—for Oprah

We agree to meet half way

round the world where the ocean

waited thousands of years before

opening its clear mouth to speak

this island under the sun. All to

remember we are students of the

large stillness, struggling with our

little stillness. Never knowing what

will rise between us, we meet beyond

the bamboo forest and bend in

the light, hollow as these stalks,

listening for a trace of the

beginning, as we do.
