The Book of Awakening

The Book of Awakening by Mark Nepo is a year\’s worth of daily devotionals. Each starts with a quote, a page long explanation, and 35 bullet points to work with.  The quotes come from sacred texts, mystics, and contemporary writers. The writing is clear, the language poetical, and the insight deep.  We are a month into it and remain enthused.  He has tackled a couple of our areas that need work (compulsive helping and too much thinking).  And done it gently.

One of the little oddities in books with daily entries is the presence of February 29.  Will I still be reading this book every day in 2016?  Probably.  But I will probably glance at it before then.  Greedy.
