Finding What Can Last: Mark Nepo Guides a Weekend Workshop

Finding What Can Last: Mark Nepo Guides a Weekend Workshop
Mark Nepo moved and inspired readers and seekers all over the world with his #1 New York Times bestseller The Book of Awakening. Beloved as a poet, teacher, and storyteller, Mark has been called “one of the finest spiritual guides of our time,” “a consummate storyteller,” and “an eloquent spiritual teacher.” His work is widely accessible and used by many and his books have been translated into more than twenty languages.
Mark is offering a weekend workshop, Friday 6:30-8:30pm & Saturday 10:30am—6:30pm, weaving themes from several of his books including More Together Than Alone, The One Life We’re Given, and his #1 New York Times bestseller, The Book of Awakening.
This journey offers a chance to work with Mark as a way to deepen your inner life. The weekend will explore the practice of being human as an applied art of spirit while unfolding the archetypal dynamics we all encounter in our struggles to engage our full humanity.
Using ancient and contemporary stories, poetry, journaling, and dialogue, Mark invites participants to befriend their own stories and listen for their own wisdom in this reflective and transformational journey. This course is an invitation to engage with profound and life-giving material that will deepen the way you perceive and relate to the world.
“It is my hope that through our time together, you will personalize the practice of being human, so you can live closer to your core. It is my aim, through our company, that you will discover the inner resources and outer skills to stand more deeply in your life and better know your heart. It is my commitment that this journey into authenticity and listening will enhance your ability to integrate who you are with what you do in the world. My goal is that you will leave more whole, with a more enlivened sense of what it means to be a spirit in the world.”
—Mark Nepo

The Themes of the Workshop include:
The Mystery of Transformation
The unfolding life of integrity involves staying true to the spirit within though the person who carries it keeps evolving.
Reduced to Joy
The art of acceptance and working with what we’re given, and the gift of vulnerability.
Standing By One’s Core
Courage originally meant to stand by one’s core. The key to inner courage, then, resides in finding and returning to the core of one’s life, heart, and being.
The Practice of Being Human
How the practice of being human centers on our unending migration between being whole-hearted and half-hearted.
Our Personal Mythology
Myths have always been carriers of what is essential but hard to keep in view. We each have a personal mythology, key stories from our lives that can keep what is essential to us in view. There is an art to naming them, telling them, and learning from them.
What Do We Do With What We Feel
With all the suffering and hardship that life keeps throwing our way, how do we stay devoted to a life of appreciation and to the direct tasting of life?
To Endure and Endear
With all the suffering and hardship that life keeps throwing our way, how do we stay devoted to a life of appreciation and to the direct tasting of life?
The Sorrow and The Peace
Everyone is given the chance to be dropped into the depth of life, where we are challenged not to run between sorrow and peace, but to transform our sorrow into peace.
Workshop hours: Fri 6:30-8:30pm & Sat 10:30am—6:30pm
