David speaks about the opportunities inherent in midlife vulnerability
Full Description

On A Change for the Better: Poetry & the Reimagination of Midlife, David speaks to an increasing sense of vulnerability as a key experience of midlife. This vulnerability is not to be turned away from, but inhabited almost as a new faculty of perception.

Using poetry from his fifth book of poetry, Everything Is Waiting for You, David illustrates how we can hold this feeling of vulnerability as a doorway to the next stage of life, a sixth sense that can put us into a new conversation with the world.

About David Whyte

David Whyte grew up with a strong, imaginative influence from his Irish mother among the hills and valleys of his father’s Yorkshire. He now makes his home in the Pacific Northwest of the United States. The author of twelve books of poetry and four books of prose, David Whyte holds a degree in marine zoology and has traveled extensively, including living and working as a naturalist guide in the Galapagos Islands and leading anthropological and natural history expeditions in the Andes, Amazon, and Himalaya. He brings this wealth of experience to his poetry, lectures, and workshops. David’s life as a poet has created a readership and listenership in three normally mutually exclusive areas: the literate world of readings that most poets inhabit, the psychological and theological worlds of philosophical inquiry, and the world of vocation, work, and organizational leadership.
