As Far As the Heart Can See: Stories to Illuminate the Soul

Mark Nepo. HCI, $15.95 trade paper (264p) ISBN 978-0-7573-1571-8
Poet, philosopher, bestselling author (The Book of Awakening), and master of metaphor, Nepo has assembled a collection of soulful stories about “staying awake and staying close to what is sacred” that go straight to the heart. Each vignette relates a deep musing, dream, or abiding parable that speaks directly to living a life of presence by “return[ing] us to the hidden wholeness in which all things are connected.” Readers are invited to enter into the “marrow of story” by working with “journal questions” for reflection, “table questions ” for discussion, and meditation, all offered at the conclusion of each chapter, each one a musing that further unearths the complex interiority of being alive. Nepo is a consummate storyteller with a rare gift for making the invisible visible: his poetic conceits “loosen habits of understanding,” allowing what is meaningful in life to come newly forth.
