Facing the Lion, Being the Lion is work from the heart that helps us find our own courage and experience how connection to our own core connects us to all of humankind, as well as to nature and spirit itself. Nepo invites us to encounter the stories of ordinary people, political activists, artists, and spiritual teachers from all traditions--people who are summoning the best of who they are in all kinds of moments, great and small. This book empowers us to take those moments into our own hearts, to be inspired by them, to let them fill our lungs and circle our hearts, empowered to stand more firmly by our own core and a little taller in the world.

Mark Nepo is a poet and philosopher who has taught in the fields of poetry and spirituality for over thirty years. He has published eleven books and recorded three CDs.

Not one of my favorites of Nepo's but nonetheless still damned good and important.
