Those who wake are the students.
Those who stay awake are the teachers.
How we take turns.

Mark will offer a yearlong journey over four weekends, weaving themes from several of his books including, Drinking from the River of Light, More Together Than Alone, Things That Join the Sea and the Sky, The One Life We’re Given, and The Book of Awakening.

This journey offers a chance to work with Mark in a smaller group setting as a way to deepen your own path over a year of your life. The aim will be to engender a live and safe space in which we can compare notes on what it means to be alive. The group will explore the lifelong process of listening, reflecting, and expressing, and on how bearing witness to the truth of living reveals the mysteries of life.

Using ancient and contemporary stories, poetry, journaling, and dialogue, Mark invites participants to befriend their own stories and listen for their own wisdom in this reflective and transformational journey. This course is an invitation to engage with profound and life-giving material that will deepen the way you perceive and relate to the world.

On a personal level, staying awake is not something we can manipulate, but only live into. Each of us is born instinctively awake and yet it takes courage to stay awake, to remember that all we encounter is real. Along the way, we are constantly being shaped by life into finer instruments of care and expression. The deeper we go, the more attuned we become, and the more we join with everything around us. This workshop will help you to inhabit a personal form of expression, by which you can strengthen your connections and find your way.

From inside our aliveness, it seems the point of experience is not to escape life but to live it. Mysteriously, truth is a secret hidden in the days until opened by our experience. For at the center of our experience, each of us holds an aspect of wisdom waiting to be discovered, and everything we meet, if faced and held, reveals a part of that wisdom to us. Each of us has a language of truth in our heart that only living our life can give voice to. And being a spirit in the world centers on how we meet the life of experience that no one can escape. In this, life is the master and we remain the student. onexox black plan

I’m excited to be offering another yearlong journey. It is my hope that through our time together, you will personalize the practice of being human, so you can live closer to your core. It is my aim, through our company, that you will discover the inner resources and outer skills to stand more deeply in your life and better know your heart. It is my commitment that this journey into authenticity and listening will enhance your ability to integrate who you are with what you do in the world. My goal is that you will leave more whole, with a more enlivened sense of what it means to be a spirit in the world.  —MN
