If you’ve ever wanted to change your life and the world then do we have the More Together Than Alone show for you.

Today I’ll be talking with Mark Nepo, the #1 New York Times best-selling author of, The Book of Awakening and another all-time favorite, incredibly beautiful, paradigm transforming, must read of a book, More Together Than Alone: Discovering the Power and Spirit of Community in Our Lives and in the World.

And that’s just what I want to talk with him about today, about discovering the power of spirit and community in our lives and in the world.





Mark Nepo is a poet and philosopher who has taught in the fields of poetry, health, and spirituality for forty years. A New York Times #1 bestselling author, he has published fourteen books and recorded eight audio projects. Mark has appeared with Oprah Winfrey on her Super Soul Sunday program on OWN TV, and has also been interviewed by Robin Roberts on Good Morning America. His work has been translated into more than twenty languages. Mark keynotes regularly for conferences and corporations, works with healing and medical communities, including chaplains and therapists, speaks and offers workshops for colleges and universities, and leads spiritual retreats.

In 1987, Mark was diagnosed with a rare form of lymphoma. The heart of that journey and its aftermath has greatly informed his work. Ever since, he has been a student of all paths and his work has explored the common center and unity of all spiritual traditions, focusing on how we can experience that unity when we can lean into life and hold nothing back. Ultimately, he explores with others how to live wholeheartedly, so we can inhabit the gifts we are born with and find the language of our own wisdom.
