Ever since, he has been a student of all paths and his work has explored the common center and unity of all spiritual traditions, focusing on how we can experience that unity when we can lean into life and hold nothing back. Ultimately, he explores with others how to live wholeheartedly, so we can inhabit the gifts we are born with and find the language of our own wisdom.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I haven't finished the book but intend to get back to it as soon as possible. Some of his thinking processes are too convoluted for me and I actually get fatigued trying to make my way through but I like his writing in general and I think he has much to contribute. It is always a joy to read about how someone surmounts difficult times in their life. It teaches us and gives us all reason for hope. It is also clear that God can use any adversity, from childhood pain to current issues of relationships, ill health, and bring good from it if we are but open to being used by Him. Mark Nepo is a testament to that. I am reading his Book of Awakening which I find very insightful. He deepens my awareness and approach to issues in my life.
