Mark Nepo Yearlong Course 2017-18

Those who wake are the students.

Those who stay awake are the teachers.

MARK NEPO moved and inspired readers and seekers all over the world with his #1 New York Times bestseller The Book of Awakening.  Beloved as a poet, teacher, and storyteller, Mark has been called "one of the finest spiritual guides of our time," "a consummate storyteller," and "an eloquent spiritual teacher." His work is widely accessible and used by many and his books have been translated into more than twenty languages.

Mark will offer a yearlong journey over four weekends, weaving themes from his new book, The One Life We're Given, and his #1 New York Times bestseller, The Book of Awakening.

This journey offers a chance to work with Mark in a smaller group setting as a way to deepen your own path over a year of your life.  The course experience will explore the practice of being human as an applied art of spirit while unfolding the archetypal dynamics we all encounter in our struggles to engage our full humanity.

The sections of Mark's new book point to how we might truly inhabit the one life we're given: by getting closer to life, loving what we do, finding what can last, and by being kind and useful.  These four inner practices shape the theme of each weekend.

Using ancient and contemporary stories, poetry, journaling, and dialogue, Mark invites participants to befriend their own stories and listen for their own wisdom in this reflective and transformational journey.  This course is an invitation to engage with profound and life-giving material that will deepen the way you perceive and relate to the world.

On a personal level, staying awake is not something we can manipulate, but only live into.  Each of us is born instinctively awake and yet it takes courage to stay awake, to remember that all we encounter is real.  As such, staying awake is a timeless practice we must ultimately enter alone, but one we can enliven together.  The journey back to wakefulness is an invitation each day to delve into what it means to be alive.

From inside this aliveness, it seems the point of experience is not to escape life but to live it.  Mysteriously, truth is a secret hidden in the days until opened by our experience.  For at the center of our experience, each of us holds an aspect of wisdom waiting to be discovered, and everything we meet, if faced and held, reveals a part of that wisdom to us.  Each of us has a language of truth in our heart that only living our life can give voice to.  And being a spirit in the world centers on how we meet the life of experience that no one can escape.  In this, life is the master and we remain the student.

I'm excited to be offering another yearlong journey.  It is my hope that through our time together, you will personalize the practice of being human, so you can live closer to your core.  It is my aim, through our company, that you will discover the inner resources and outer skills to stand more deeply in your life and better know your heart.  It is my commitment that this journey into authenticity and listening will enhance your ability to integrate who you are with what you do in the world.  My goal is that you will leave more whole, with a more enlivened sense of what it means to be a spirit in the world.
