Book Description

July 20 2011 Thorndike Inspirational
Philosopher-poet and cancer survivor, Mark Nepo opens a new season of freedom and joy--an escape from deadening, asleep-at-the wheel sameness--that is both profound and clarifying. His spiritual daybook is a summons to reclaim aliveness, liberate the self, take each day one at a time, and to savor the beauty offered by life's unfolding. Reading his poetic prose is like being given second sight, exposing the reader to life's multiple dimensions, each one drawn with awe and affection. The Book of Awakening is the result of his journey of the soul and will inspire others to embark on their own. Nepo speaks of spirit and friendship, urging readers to stay vital and in love with this life, no matter the hardships. Encompassing many traditions and voices, Nepo's words offer insight on pain, wonder, and love. Each entry is accompanied by an exercise that will surprise and delight the reader in its mind-waking ability.

5.0 out of 5 stars A beautiful offering. Dec 17 2003
By A Customer
To be honest, this book caught my eye first because of its beautiful cover of the Lotus. I opened the book read a passage
and felt deeply moved almost to tears. This is a beautifully orchestrated book. Its daily reflections, passages and quotes
are soul food for our journey. This book is definitely a work
of love. You can feel the intent put forth and given to the reader by the author. What a blessed contribution it is. The foreward by Wayne Mueller sums this stellar gem up perfectly.
A difinite addition to your collection, if not the only book you will ever need and keep close to your heart, spirit and soul.
Dear Mark Nepo,
You have written a book that has moved me so, there are
no words to describe it. I thank you for sharing your beautiful offering. I am so happy to have come across it just in a time
when I was so ready and open to its messages.

5.0 out of 5 stars Comforting and thought provoking! Feb. 9 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I've used this as a daily reading book for three years and gifted it to 10 other people.
Nepo is a sensitive and talented writer with much insight to share. I love that I often appreciate
What he says as an idea I've heard before (and understood) but then there is a pleasing twist
That takes it one level deeper. The meditation activities with each reading are a bonus.

3.0 out of 5 stars Okay read. Dec 20 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Reading that book didn't really get my full attention. I feel there's too much second hand knowledge. I only read a quarter of the book. He's more into "training" the brain rather than letting it flow. Awareness is not about training the brain, but rather being aware of its noise/conflicts and so on. Then and only then a peace of mind emerges.

Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
In the past two years, I have purchased over 15 copies to give to friends. This book has a gentle tone and great guidance in an easy to read format. It has personally helped me overcome some difficult challenges and continues to give me perspective. It is never preachy or restrictive but leads you to your own conclusions in a open loving manner.
