Mark Nepo has been described as “one of the finest spiritual guides of our time”. His twenty-two books have been translated in over twenty languages. This evening’s conversation will center on his two most recent books, The Book of Soul: Creating a Path to What Matters and Drinking from the River of Light: The Life of Expression.
Mark has been a student of the inner journey for more than forty years. He believes that the creative process of expression is a means to spiritual growth. He writes, “The deeper we go into the creative process, the more attuned we become and that allows us to join with everything around us.”
In The Book of Soul, Mark explores our call and struggle to inhabit the soul on Earth through a messy human life, and how underneath our differences, we can be who we are everywhere and create a path to what matters. This book delves into our ongoing process of transformation in its mystery, difficulty, and inevitability.
He adds, “It seems the purpose of suffering is to exhaust us of our differences, and the purpose of love is to awaken us to how we’re at heart the same. Then, we discover that the temple is the world. This seems even more relevant in our tense, modern world.”
Nepo is a poet, philosopher, and teacher who has taught for more than forty years. He’s best known for his New York Times #1 bestseller, The Book of Awakening.
