Description



Book Synopsis



"I would follow this man anywhere his words want to take us," writes Elizabeth Gilbert, author of Eat, Pray, Love, in praise of Mark Nepo and The One Life We're Given. "His voice helps us find pathways where we might have believed that no pathway could possibly exist."

"Mark Nepo is a national treasure," says Rev. Ed Bacon, author of Eight Habits of Love. Now, Nepo--popular spiritual teacher and #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Book of Awakening--crafts a new road map for the soul's journey. It is "a powerful guide to being in the world without being overwhelmed by it. Profound and poignant stories and insights help us survive what life brings us, and to thrive," says Arianna Huffington. The One Life We're Given "shares how to shape the life of the soul, and make sense of pain, fear, and loss, as well as surprise, beauty, and wonder" (Library Journal).

Exploring the craft of awakening, The One Life We're Given affirms our purpose: we are here not just to stay alive but to stay in our aliveness. "The wisdom presented in the shining pages of this holy book is another luminous gift from a gallant, grateful, and imaginative spiritual master" (Spirituality & Practice).



Review Quotes




"Mark Nepo is one of our national treasures. That is because Mark inhabits that rare and beautiful consciousness that enables him to express the language of the soul. The words and energy flowing from the font of his heart not only make our lives more beautiful but heal us."--Rev. Ed Bacon, author, 8 Habits of Love; rector, All Saints Episcopal Church, Pasadena

"Mark Nepo is someone who walks through this confusing and sometimes dark world holding up a lantern and lighting the way. His voice helps us find pathways where we might have believed that no pathway could possibly exist. He is more than simply brave and more than simply wise; he is deeply kind -- because he understands that kindness is the most courageous act of wisdom there is. I can say with all certainty that I would follow this man anywhere his words want to take us."

--Elizabeth Gilbert, author of Eat, Pray, Love and Big Magic

"Nepo shares how to shape the life of the soul, and make sense of every pain, fear, and loss, as well as surprise, beauty, and wonder. Through thought-provoking stories and commentary, the author assists readers in discovering what can be accomplished, what will last, and how to be kind and useful. He asks readers to record their feelings and supplies topics for inspiration, which include the challenge of self-analysis. Nepo is one of the best in terms of relating to the desires of the soul and pinings of readers. No time will be wasted reading through his work."-- "Library Journal"

"This book is a powerful guide to being in the world without being overwhelmed by it. Nepo's profound and poignant stories and insights can help us survive what life brings us, and to thrive inwardly."--Arianna Huffington, author of The Sleep Revolution
