The Book of Awakening by poet Mark Nepo provides small doses of what really matters, simple truths, and stories for everyday lives, plus inspiration from the great wisdom traditions. Each day's entry is accompanied by commonplace and profound practice designed to help us live the life we want by being present to the life we have. In his new introduction to this edition, Nepo reiterates that this book is agift and a teacher by gently reminding us all, in the words of St. Francis of Assisi, "You are that which you are seeking".
Also included is a subject index that allows readers to go directly to issues and topics that concern them, to tailor the book to their own specific needs. This is a book to help you keep your head high, your heart open, and your feet on the ground. This is a book to help you see your life.
