When asked how they practiced their faith, medieval monks would say, "By falling down and getting up."
Based on his new book, Mark Nepo guides us on an exploration of the perennial practices and choice-points we all face in falling down and getting up. These include surviving and thriving, managing risk and enhancing risk, opening and closing, giving and receiving, living a balance between solitude and community, enlarging our sense of things when pain and fear make us small, and the never-ending practice of course-correcting and tuning as we go.
In his teaching, Mark remains committed to introducing students and readers to their own gifts and wisdom, so we each can live both close to the bone and close to the light.
Mark Nepo is a spiritual teacher who has been convening circles and guiding retreats for 50 years all over the world. Beloved as a poet, teacher, and storyteller, his New York Times best-selling work of The Book of Awakening has been called "one of the finest spiritual guides of our time."
