“I would follow this man anywhere his words want to take us,” writes Elizabeth Gilbert, author of Eat, Pray, Love, in praise of Mark Nepo and The One Life We’re Given. “His voice helps us find pathways where we might have believed that no pathway could possibly exist.”

“Mark Nepo is a national treasure,” says Rev. Ed Bacon, author of Eight Habits of Love. Now, Nepo—popular spiritual teacher and #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Book of Awakening—crafts a new road map for the soul’s journey. It is “a powerful guide to being in the world without being overwhelmed by it. Profound and poignant stories and insights help us survive what life brings us, and to thrive,” says Arianna Huffington. The One Life We’re Given "shares how to shape the life of the soul, and make sense of pain, fear, and loss, as well as surprise, beauty, and wonder” (Library Journal).

Exploring the craft of awakening, The One Life We’re Given affirms our purpose: we are here not just to stay alive but to stay in our aliveness. “The wisdom presented in the shining pages of this holy book is another luminous gift from a gallant, grateful, and imaginative spiritual master” (Spirituality & Practice).
