Synopsis:

Enter Your Days to the Fullest

Most of us can remember a time when we felt completely awake-fully present, deeply engaged, our heart and mind wide open. We also know those periods of sleepiness when our purpose is unclear, we lose our way in relationship, and life's challenges seem more than we can bear. In Staying Awake, Mark Nepo invites us to inhabit our truest selves "in all ways in all directions," as we find our own voices in the One Conversation in which each of our lives is a story waiting to be told.

With a poet's keen view of the vast and often hidden territory of the inner life, Mark Nepo talks directly about what a gift it is to be here and about the resources that the mysteries of being and experience reveal. Informed by his journey through cancer, he explores the lessons brought to us by the press of love and suffering. For each of us is born awake and yet it takes courage to stay awake, to remember that all we encounter is real.

Sharing his own rich poetry along with the inspired writing of luminaries across generations, Nepo guides us in the central practice of staying awake: to be who we are, no matter what we face, and to enter our days and moments to the fullest. We do this, he teaches, by holding nothing back-by bringing all of who we are to every situation, enlivening our connection with everything life has to offer. Using teaching stories and a series of exercises and reflections, Nepo invites us to listen to our own stories and to find our own wisdom.

"We are stronger, gentler, more resilient, and more beautiful than any of us imagine," teaches Mark Nepo. Staying Awake is his offering to all of us who seek "the love of truth and the truth of love that help us live."
