Mark Nepo Comes to the Authentic Living Show

On March 18, 2015, at 1 pm Pacific/4 pm Eastern, NY Times Bestselling author, poet and philosopher, Mark Nepo, who has been called “one of the finest spiritual guides of our time,” “a consummate storyteller,” and “an eloquent spiritual teacher,” will be interviewed on the Authentic Living show.


Phoenix, AZ -- (SBWire) -- 03/17/2015 --Mark Nepo has published fifteen books and recorded nine audio projects, including Seven Thousand Ways to Listen, which won the 2012 Books for a Better Life Award; The Exquisite Risk, which was cited by Spirituality and Practice as one of the Best Spiritual Books of 2005; The Endless Practice and Reduced to Joy—both of which will be subjects of the interview on the Authentic Living Show. Mark has appeared several times with Oprah Winfrey on Super Soul Sunday on OWN TV, and he has been interviewed by Robin Roberts on Good Morning America. Mark devotes his writing and teaching to the journey of inner transformation and the life of relationship, and he frequently offers readings, lectures and retreats.

As a poet, philosopher and cancer survivor, Mark has been uncovering a path of spiritual inquiry for more than forty years. Called "one of the finest spiritual guides of our time," the #1 New York Times bestselling author and beloved teacher explores what it means to become our truest self in the book, The Endless Practice. And in Reduced to Joy, a book of exquisite poetry, Mark explores the places where pain and joy are stitched to resilience. The book is a lesson in stillness, in standing in the mystery and, above all, in the work of love. These two books will be explored in greater depth, for the listening audience on the Authentic Living Show on March 18, 2015 at 1 pm Pacific/4 pm Eastern. One brief stanza of his poem "Holding the Gun" gives something of the power packed in the ripe poetry of Mark Nepo:

What if pain, the kind that opens a
fist, is really the tap of an angel
saving us from ourselves.

Andrea Mathews, the host of the Authentic Living show, is an author in her own right, of three books: Restoring My Soul: A Workbook for Finding and Living the Authentic Self (2007), The Law Of Attraction: The Soul's Answer To Why It Isn't Working And How It Can (2011), and Inhabiting Heaven NOW: The Answer to Every Moral Dilemma Ever Posed (Dec. 13, 2013). She is a practicing psychotherapist, speaker, corporate trainer and radio host. Mathews has published several articles in spiritual and informational magazines around the world. She served as the Editor of two small literary presses and has published several poems in other literary magazines. She presents keynote addresses, workshops and seminars for groups, corporations and organizations large and small. She says, "It seems like my basic message both for myself and my world is LIVE, live life to the fullest from the deepest and most profound places in yourself!"

The Authentic Living show is based in the same principles as her first book, and from the very beginning, Mathews has held a clear intention to offer listeners a clear pathway to the Authentic Self. With that goal in mind, she has interviewed some of the world's most profound and prolific spiritual leaders, bestselling authors and entertainers. People like Iyanla Vanzant, Marianne Williamson, Tom Shadyac, Rosanne Cash, Gary Zukav, Dr. Brian Weiss, Thomas Moore, Caroline Myss, Byron Katie, Dr. Christiane Northrup, Dr. Clarissa Pinkola Estés, Dr. Judith Orloff, Neale Donald Walsch, Joan Borysenko, Bruce Lipton, Dan Millman, Julia Cameron, John Holland and many more. Each one of these people brings a special message about how to live more authentically. The show has topped over 200,000 listeners.

The show has been noticed by Harpo Studios for its quality of interviews and number of listeners and was chosen and honored to run clips of Oprah's Super Soul Sunday series on OWN (the Oprah Winfrey Network).

Listeners can hear these shows anytime by going directly to the show's archives at The show can also be heard on iTunes as a podcast, and even downloaded from either site to copy to CD, so that listeners can have, as Mathews puts it, "a dialog with themselves" in the car on the way to work." Most recently VoiceAmerica has developed a mobile app that can be downloaded for iPhone, Blackberry and Android mobile phones, for easy listening. Some of the shows can be also be heard on Mathews' webpage: Authentic Living is currently sponsored by The American Institute of Holistic Theology.
