Special Online Bonus


Author and teacher Mark Nepo tells us that there is always an edge relative to our personal journey at which we are challenged to grow. In this bonus session, we join the author of the Sounds True audio programs Staying Awake and Holding Nothing Back to explore this truth, and how it relates to what Mark calls “the two teachers known as effort and grace.”

Sharing a parable he wrote called “The Edge,” Mark invites us to consider on a daily basis the attitude we will hold about the various edges we encounter. He explains that as we navigate the edge between what is known and unknown, what feels safe and what we fear, we must recognize our capacity to either accept or reject what arises in our experience. The stance or effort we choose will determine whether we are open to receive the grace that is “ever-present and ever-healing.”
