Poet David Whyte speaks about the unique human experience of coming to ground
Full Description

In this talk given in the wake of the September 2001 attacks on the World Trade Center, poet David Whyte speaks about the unique human experience of coming to ground. This is a time of silence and gathering in, a time to acknowledge that we are all participants in a greater story.

With poetry and insightful commentary, he brings to light the challenge and privilege of bringing our private stories into conversation with the larger world, opening our selves to the insights that times of difficulty may spark. In this way, we stand firmly in our experience and look to the possibilities of the next era.

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.

This is by far my FAVORITE talk of David's!

Wish I had time but I would go ON and ON! America needs this as CD or revised LIFE talk NOW... as much or more than ever!!

Plz let David & other folk who could influence his know right away!!

He might help us thereby to find a new narrative or journey in response to 911 and in keeping with the Charleston Nine...

Love, Blessings, Peace
