If your life’s path seems a little arduous of late, you’ll find that this wonderful book is exactly the medicine you need. It’s a collection of meditations on life’s true meaning and how to find it in the life you actually have. With one meditation for each day of the year, The Book of Awakening is designed to provide you with a guiding and supporting hand to restore your appreciation and love of life, whatever your difficulties. Poet Mark Nepo actually wrote it while he was recovering from cancer. With its small doses of what really matters: simple truths and stories from everyday lives, plus inspiration from the great wisdom traditions, this book will bring you home to the awareness that you are always blessed and that, in the words of St Francis of Assisi, ‘You are that which you are seeking’.
