Beloved as a poet, teacher, and storyteller, Mark Nepo, the New York Times bestselling author of The Book of Awakening, has been called “one of the finest spiritual guides of our time,” “a consummate storyteller,” and “an eloquent spiritual teacher.” His many books have been translated into more than twenty languages. Now in his sixties, he is publishing Reduced to Joy, a book of seventy-three poems, retrieved and shaped over the last thirteen years, about the nature of working with what we're given till it wears us through to joy. About joy, Nepo says, “Often, what keeps us from joy is the menacing assumption that life is happening other than where we are.” Of the book, he says, “Poetry is the well from which all my books rise. It's where I always go to listen, always stunned by what arrives. It's how I know the inner world. I bring these poems back from the deep like shells from the sea that we can look at together.” Profound and accessible, Nepo's poems are tools for staying close to what matters.
