"A deeply heartfelt weave of reflections and poems about what it means to live the creative, expressive life. I cherish the wisdom and embrace the practices offered in this luminous book." - Mirabai Starr, author of Caravan of No Despair and Wild Mercy


"Meaningful art, enduring art - and the transformative process it awakens - keeps us alive," writes Mark Nepo. 

With Drinking from the River of Light, this bestselling poet and philosopher will lead you on a journey to discover just how art and authentic expression can bring our deepest truths to bear in the world.In this collection of interconnected essays and poetry - covering subjects ranging from the importance of staying in conversation with other forms of life to a consideration of how innovators such as Matisse, Rodin, and Beethoven saw the world - Nepo presents a lyrical ode to the creative urge that stirs in each of us. Whether it's the search for a metaphor to reveal life's beauty or the brushstroke that will thoroughly capture the moment, Drinking from the River of Light examines what it means to go ". . . beyond the boundaries of art, where the viewer and participant are one."
