Author(s): Mark Nepo
In Finding Inner Courage, Mark Nepo invites readers to explore their own inner core through the stories of ordinary people, political activists, artists and spiritual teachers from a variety of traditions. These are people who have faced themselves: people who have stood by the courage of their convictions in moments both great and small. The book is divided into three sections - finding our inner core, standing by our inner core and sustaining the practice of living from that place. Each of the nearly sixty brief essays and stories elucidates and inspires. Nepo's broad range of stories and people, of traditions and insights, offers myriad ways for readers to relate to their own search for courage.
