An Evening with Mark Nepo

Friday, February 16, 2018 - 7:00pm - 10:00pm

Please join us for this inspirational evening entitled, "Heartwork: Being a Spirit in the World." General admission tickets are $35 and can be purchased using this link:

Mark Nepo is a poet and philosopher who has taught in the fields of poetry and spirituality for over 30 years. Nepo is best known for his New York Times #1 bestseller, "The Book of Awakening."

In this talk, Mark will explore the heartwork required to inhabit our lives by engaging our ongoing relationships to self, other, work, community, and Source. The integrity of our heartwork depends on integrating who we are with what we do. Regardless of the service we're called to, the central questions have always been: How will we inhabit our time on Earth? How can we live fully in the face of death? And how can we love fully in the face of life? This of course leads to other questions: How will we know and be known? How do we hold each other as we tumble along in the story of our lives? How will we care for each other in the face of crisis?

"I have come to believe that we can only discover the capacity and meaning of our time on Earth in the context of our struggles, in how we face and inhabit the challenges life presents to us. In this, living together is an applied art of Spirit, one that we can enliven together." -Mark Nepo

Carolyn was born and raised in Portland, and attended Oregon State University. Marriage to an Air Force officer, took her away from Oregon, and after living in California, Arizona, and St. Louis Missouri, she ended up putting down roots in the Washington DC area for 30 years. Her career path took her into retail, first as an Interior Designer, and then into Executive Management of the high-end Home Furnishings & Interior Design business that she and her husband owned for many years. Returning "home" to Oregon in 2006, after closing the business, was a dream come true. She feels truly blessed and is grateful everyday to be back in Oregon.

Carolyn was introduced to Unity at the age of 7, when her mother was seeking an alternative to their Lutheran roots. She attended Unity churches wherever she lived, and found her church home in the DC suburbs, Unity of Fairfax, in Oakton, VA. There she was active in many volunteer activities, including singing in the church choir and being a member of the Board of Trustees for 6 years. She is now very grateful to be a part of New Thought Center for Spiritual Living, a dynamic Spiritual Community, where she continues on her spiritual journey.
