Mark  Nepo

Mark Nepo is a poet and philosopher who has taught in the fields of poetry and spirituality for more than thirty years. In 1987, Mark was diagnosed with a rare form of lymphoma, and as he went through his cancer experience, the lack of books available to guide him through made a deep and lasting impression. As a result, Mark has since devoted himself to the usefulness of daily inner life,  writing and teaching the journey of inner transformation and the life of relationship. He has published twelve books and recorded five CDs. Mark has been regularly booked for teaching engagements, seminars, keynotes, and workshops across the United States. Venues include universities, conferences, cancer centers, medical schools, writing programs, spiritual retreat centers, and many others. Mark taught at the State University of New York at Albany for eighteen years. Today, Mark has extensive engagements in leading spiritual retreats, working with healing and medical communities, and teaching as a poet. His #1 New York Times bestseller, "The Book of Awakening", was selected as one of "Oprah's Ultimate Favorite Things" in 2010.
