Mark Nepo tells us that when asked how they practiced their faith, medieval monks would say, ‘By falling down and getting up.” And so, drawn from many years of his teaching, this weekend will explore the perennial practices and choice-points we all face in falling down and getting up, such as: surviving and thriving, managing risk and enhancing risk, opening and closing, giving and receiving, living a balance between solitude and community, enlarging our sense of things when pain and fear make us small, and the never-ending practice of course-correcting and tuning as we go.

Mark Nepo is a master teacher and spiritual guide who has been convening circles and facilitating worldwide retreats for 50 years. Beloved as a poet, teacher, and storyteller, 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 20 languages. Based on his forthcoming book, Falling Down and Getting Up: Discovering Your Inner Resilience and Strength, this program will draw on his decades of teaching.
