Mark Nepo will be at Transformations for a reading and signing of his new book, “Things That Join the Sea and the Sky.” The acclaimed poet-teacher and New York Times bestselling author shares intimate reflections drawn from his lifelong journals. Comprised of 145 entries gathered over the last fifteen years, this book takes readers through seventeen sections organized around archetypal thresholds we all face, including “Stopping the Noise,” “Unraveling Our Fear,” “The Gift of Deepening,” The Practice of Relationship,” “and “The Radiance in All Things.”
Mark’s personal accounts of “sinking and being lifted” serve as the seeds for each selection, each unfolding insight relevant to our own lives. “These pages are field notes on living, a travelogue of my conversation with the Universe, a mix of inner reflections, questions, and stories that have come to teach me how to be here.”
Registration is not required.
