Beloved spiritual teacher, poet, and philosopher Mark Nepo returns to the inspiring short-chapter format of his #1 New York Times bestseller, The Book of Awakening, to map an insightful and resilient path for inhabiting the soul by engaging in the world. Mark Nepo has been called "one of the finest spiritual guides of our time," "a consummate storyteller," and "an eloquent spiritual teacher." With the rare ability to communicate stirringly profound truths directly to each individual heart, Mark inspires audiences of more than 15,000 people as well as small, intimate groups. Now, in The One Life We're Given, Nepo's personal stories, questions, and meditations take us on a deep and uplifting journey to know our own hearts and enliven our souls. "In order to fully live the one life we're given," Nepo writes, "we each must affirm how precious this one life is and open ourselves to loving whatever life puts before us. Whether that is suffering, pain, fear or loss, or surprise, beauty, love or wonder, we work to stay in touch with our hearts in order to make sense of our experience. As we learn when to try and when to let go, when to give our all and when to surrender and simply receive, we unfold the moments that reveal meaning and ready us for grace. This is how the heart breaks a path to our soul's work, leading us to our authenticity, and to how we can be useful to others and the world." By illuminating the art of finding and restoring what matters and by exploring the craft of awakening, The One Life We're Given affirms our purpose as not just to stay alive but to stay in our aliveness.

Reviews

"Mark Nepo is one of our national treasures. That is because Mark inhabits that rare and beautiful consciousness that enables him to express the language of the soul. The words and energy flowing from the font of his heart not only make our lives more beautiful but heal us."--Rev. Ed Bacon, author, 8 Habits of Love; rector, All Saints Episcopal Church, Pasadena "Mark Nepo is someone who walks through this confusing and sometimes dark world holding up a lantern and lighting the way. His voice helps us find pathways where we might have believed that no pathway could possibly exist. He is more than simply brave and more than simply wise; he is deeply kind -- because he understands that kindness is the most courageous act of wisdom there is. 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 "This book is a powerful guide to being in the world without being overwhelmed by it. Nepo's profound and poignant stories and insights can help us survive what life brings us, and to thrive inwardly." --Arianna Huffington, author of The Sleep Revolution
