Personal Growth • 3 hrs. • Audio Program • © 1996

The author's beautiful poetry captures his transformation from a cancer victim to someone who lives life in total contact with the moment, and in total connection with his wife, who also battled cancer. His is a deeply moving memoir of personal growth in the context of an intimate marriage bond, and it's very, very touching. Embedded in the poems and commentary are lessons about living life with intention while surrendering to its plan, whether it be sickness or health. Nepo's reading is as eloquent as his words, which, along with original music by Therese Schroeder-Sheker, are absolutely elegant. A respite from dealing with doctors, it lessens the weight of being responsible for sickness, and is a satisfying journey to tranquility and integration with the universe. T.W.
