GIFT EDITION
The Book of Awakening, catapulted to fame in 2010 after it was chosen as one of Oprah Winfrey's favorite things. This gift edition with sewn binding and a ribbon marker reflects the book's odyssey as a well-beloved daily companion. Mark Nepo wrote the book more than a decade ago, in response to his journey through cancer a decade before that. That experience led him to create a day book not only for people going through life-threatening situations but for everyone.
Nepo calls it, "a book to help people meet their days and inhabit their lives. I had a commitment to create a book that could serve up inner food, that could be turned to as a spiritual first-aid kit." That this book continued to find its readers, affirms its quality as a life affirming companion. Again, in Nepo's works, "I think it confirms the yearning of people everywhere for meaningful and humble work that invites readers on a journey together. The premise of the book is that people everywhere have a wisdom of their own and the book is there to guide them to their own wisdom."
The Book of Awakening is a modern classic, speaking to the hearts of hundreds of thousands of readers. It's a daily guide for living in hard times and good times, all the time reminding us that the life we're living is the life we have. Lived authentically it can and does become the life we want.


Mark Nepo is a poet and philosopher who has taught in the fields of poetry and spirituality for over thirty years. As a cancer survivor, Mark devotes his writing and teaching to the journey of inner transformation and the life of relationship. He is also the author of The Exquisite Risk, which was cited as one of the Best Spiritual Books of 2005 by Spirituality & Health Magazine.
