The author of numerous non-fiction and poetry books, Mark Nepo is a New York Times bestselling author and inspiring speaker whose works examines the human condition in rich and unfolding ways.

He will discuss his thoughts around how we spend much of our time on earth listening and waking. How, when awake, we come upon the risk to be authentic. And taking that risk, we are faced with the need to stand by our core in order to live life fully. If we get this far, we are returned, quite humbly, to the simple fate of being here. And after all this way, it appears that a devotion to deep listening remains the simple and sacred work of being here.   Watch Mark Nepo talk about "Staying Awake", the subject of his new CD set, now available from Sounds True:   "Reaching this agreement between what is human and what is spiritual is the practice of meeting the world with vulnerability until who we are releases what we know." ~ Mark Nepo
