Hailed as one of “Oprah’s Ultimate Favorite Things,” Mark Nepo’s bestselling “thinking person’s devotional” of inspirational stories and essays is now available from S&S Audio.

In this work, Mark Nepo invites listeners to explore their own inner core through the stories of ordinary people, political activists, artists, and spiritual teachers from a variety of traditions. These are people who have faced themselves, their warts and weaknesses. They have stood by the courage of their convictions in all kinds of moments, great and small.

Nepo’s insights and commentary are spot on, and help listeners relate the stories of others to their own lives. The Book of Awakening is divided into three sections—finding our inner core, standing by our inner core, and sustaining the practice of living from that place. Each of the brief essays and stories elucidates and inspires. Nepo’s broad range of stories and people, of traditions and insights, offers myriad ways for listeners to relate to their own search for courage.
