Spiritual guide and philosopher
Mark Nepo is a poet and philosopher who has been teaching poetry and spirituality for over 30 years. He inspired readers and seekers worldwide with his #1 New York Times best seller, The Book of Awakening, and has been called one of the finest spiritual guides of our time. Mark has published 19 books and recorded 14 audio projects, and his books have been translated into more than 20 languages. His latest books include The One Life We’re Given and Things That Join the Sea and the Sky: Field Notes on Living.
Of his journey, Mark reflects that a near-fatal fight against cancer in his thirties inspired his devotion to the heart and made him “committed to introducing fellow seekers to their own gifts and their own wisdom, which always leads us to the mystery that we are more together than alone.”
Mark has been widely interview and featured in the media, including several appearances with Oprah Winfrey on OWN’s Super Soul Sunday program and on Good Morning America, where he was interviewed by Robin Roberts. He was also part of Oprah Winfrey’s The Life You Want Tour in 2014. Mark received a Life-Achievement Award from AgeNation in 2015, and in 2016 he was named by Watkins Mind Body Spirit magazine as one of the 100 Most Spiritually Influential Living People.
