How the practice of sitting Zen shares common ground with the practice of writing
Full Description

The practice of sitting Zen shares common ground with the practice of writing—the gateways for each are difficult, and involve a fierce way of paying attention to the world. The acts of silence and breathing that are part of sitting Zen and the writer’s dedicated apprenticeship to utterance both engage us in unspoken conversation with the visible and the invisible—with our selves, with those we know, and with those who have gone before, and most of all with the known and the unknown.

David Whyte

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.
