Falling Down and Getting Up is an invitation to view adversity from a new perspective. In this gentle, insightful guide, Marp Nepo helps readers navigate the challenges of life by making the bold choice to embrace every experience as a chance for positive change.

Each one of us is offered opportunities to choose between surviving and thriving, managing risk and enhancing risk, opening and closing, giving and receiving, living a balance between solitude and community. We can choose to enlarge our sense of things when pain and fear make us small. We can choose to delight in the never-ending practice of course-correcting and tuning as we go. Falling Down and Getting Up introduces readers to their own gifts and wisdom, helping them explore the perennial practices and choice-points we all face in life.

Mark Nepo is a master teacher who has been convening circles and guiding retreats for fifty years all over the world. Beloved as a poet, teacher, and storyteller, he has been called “one of the finest spiritual guides of our time,” “a consummate storyteller,” and “an eloquent spiritual teacher.” Filled with humble insights and wise words, Falling Down and Getting Up will encourage and inspire readers from every walk of life.
