Our Pre-Conference speaker is Mark Nepo, a spiritual writer, poet, and storyteller. Mark has moved and inspired readers and seekers all over the world with his #1 New York Times bestseller The Book of Awakening. He has been called “one of the finest spiritual guides of our time,” “a consummate storyteller,” and “an eloquent spiritual teacher.” Mark was part of Oprah Winfrey’s The Life You Want Tour in 2014 and has appeared several times with Oprah on her Super Soul Sunday program on OWN TV. Mark devotes his writing and teaching to the journey of inner transformation and the life of relationship, and we have been working closely with him to structure a pre-conference that will speak the tensions we face in offering mental health services in a higher education setting. Mark is eager to meet with us and have an interactive day.
