The Book of Awakening, by poet and teacher Mark Nepo, provides small doses of what really matters, simple truths and stories from everyday lives, plus inspiration from the great wisdom traditions. Each day’s entry is accompanied by simple, yet profound, practices designed to help us live the life we want by being present to the life we have. For, in the words of St. Francis of Assisi, “You are that which you are seeking.”
A daily guide for authentic living in hard times, The Book of Awakening is a book to keep your head high, your heart open, and your feet on the ground. “It is true,” Nepo writes, “If you can’t see what you’re looking for, see what’s there. It is enough".
“A year’s supply of inspiration every day and the perfect gift for yourself and your friends.” (Oprah Winfrey)
“Mark Nepo has written a beautiful book about life, informed by the shadows of death. I’ve been blessed and humbled by reading his words.” (Marianne Williamson)
“Each entry in this capacious and tender daybook widens both the eyes and the heart.” (Jane Hirschfield, author of Nine Gates and After)

I wish someone besides the author were performing.
Yes, it's time well spent...though I wish I were reading it instead of listening to it.
Reminded me a bit of a daily wisdom book I like by Hugh Prather.
Anyone who could make it sound more conversational. His delivery is so Jack Handy on a sugar buzz I have a hard time actually hearing what he's saying. I wish I'd bought the book to read instead of listen.
Yes. It is well written, full of wisdom.

Great book if you're into Poetry
No, not an audible book read by the author. NO!
No...it is because I read mostly within this genre that I chose this book.
He reads like a poet. It's less about awakening and more about a poetic sensibility on the subject.Not my cup of tea.
Yes. I am inspired to buy no more 'read by the author' Mark Nepo books.
This is one of the least interesting audible reads I've experienced in my 5 years on Audible and my 250+ books purchased. LEAST!
