Poet, philosopher, and cancer survivor Mark Nepo has been breaking a path of spiritual inquiry for more than forty years. In his latest book, the #1 New York Times bestselling author "writes reflectively and poetically about the lifelong spiritual journey" (Publishers Weekly). Called one of the finest spiritual guides of our time, Nepo explores what it means to become our truest self as we face life's challenges--as well as its joys. Navigating some of the soul's deepest, most ancient questions, he asks: How do we stay vital and buoyant amid the storms of life? What is the secret to coming alive? The soul's journey is inevitable, and no matter where we go we can't escape this foundational truth: What's in the way is the way. As Nepo writes, "The point of experience is not to escape life but to live it." Featured on Oprah's Super Soul Sunday program, and a key presenter in Oprah's nationwide The Life You Want Weekend Tour, Nepo inspires each of us to discover who we were born to be. Like his bestselling The Book of Awakening, The Endless Practice is filled with insights and stories, guidance and practice that will bring you closer to living life to the fullest.

Reviews

"Navigational tips for the journey--ways to grow and expand, ways of handling mess and sorrow, and ways of finding love and beauty and joy. The Endless Practice brings Mark Nepo's many years of teaching and writing and musing into one potent offering. I recommend it heartily."--Elizabeth Lesser, cofounder of Omega Institute and author of Broken Open: How Difficult Times Can Help Us Grow "In "The Endless Practice, " Mark Nepo is a kind friend, sage mentor, and curious fellow journeyer, walking alongside us as he observes the magnificent complexities of the human experience. The notion of an endless practice gives us hope and encouragement--that even when we trip, struggle, grieve, or feel lost, we have an opportunity to expand, and that it's through this lived experience, with all its ups and downs, that we come closer to the heart of who we were born to be."--Kris Carr "I have spent my life searching for the reason I was born. I think anyone in middle age does. Mark Nepo has been my guide in the quest. Simple and yet wildly profound, his words of clarity and, most importantly, connection, his ideas and suggestions, are ones I inculcate and metabolize daily."--Jamie Lee Curtis "This book held me in its warm embrace. Mark is a true poet of the soul, using fresh, vivid language to capture realities that are too often cast as mere cliches. What a blessing!"--Tosha Silver, author of Outrageous Openness: Letting the Divine Take the Lead "A poetic and marvelous invitation into presence and love. Let this book quiet your mind and open your heart, and help you live from the rhythms of your soul."--Jack Kornfield author of A Path With Heart "Mark Nepo has created and encoded a work of wisdom, love, truth and beauty. Reading his words will open your heart, expand your mind, and nourish your soul. Just holding this book shifted me into a state of grace."--Arielle Ford, author of, Wabi Sabi Love: The Ancient Art of Finding Perfect Love in Imperfect Relationships Navigational tips for the journey--ways to grow and expand, ways of handling mess and sorrow, and ways of finding love and beauty and joy.

I've done this ten thousand times as the curtain lifted on stage, never thinking to try to live that way after the curtain dropped, in my everyday life. It wasn't until I fought my addiction and won that I realized I was in my own way, and until I put something else in front of me, the life I wanted wouldn't show up. And then one day, along with all the blessings I received, I picked up a copy of The Book of Awakening. And fourteen years later, I'm on my third copy, because as I read each day I underscore and leave my own notes. But the journey ain't over as Mark's new book, The Endless Practice, is yet another candle to light our understanding along the spiritual path called Life."--Steven Tyler "In The Endless Practice, Mark Nepo is a kind friend, sage mentor, and curious fellow journeyer, walking alongside us as he observes the magnificent complexities of the human experience.
