|A Note From Jan — by Jan Adrian, MSW
I'm delighted to share with you another gem from Mark Nepo, one of my favorite authors, and the author of one of my favorite books, The Book of Awakening. I read a few pages from it at our recent conference in Spartanburg, SC, and received a card from someone who attended that conference, traveling all the way from Southern California. She said "when Jan read the page from The Book of Awakening, I knew I was home."
The Spartanburg, SC, conference felt like a home-coming in many ways. It felt like a deep experience of nourishing the soul, and when I'm feeding my soul is when I'm most at home. I hope this story from Mark Nepo nourishes your soul.
In the spirit of healing,
Jan Adrian, MSW
Founder and Executive Director

Keeping What Is True Before Us
by Mark Nepo
Faith is not an insurance, but a constant effort, a constant listening to the eternal voice.
I needed to have blood drawn for my annual physical and even though it's been twenty years since I've been spit out from the mouth of the whale of cancer, it's never very far. I kept telling myself that was then, this is now. But in the early morning waiting room, I could feel my breath speed up, higher in my chest, and below any conscious remembering, the many waiting room walls began to appear, dark friends who say they miss me. . . .
