David Whyte explores the invitation of the unknown to participate fully in creation
Full Description

We all enter the unknown in large and small ways in our lives, yet human beings often find the experience frightening. Reciting some of the most beloved poems of his collection, David speaks of the unknown as an invitation to participate fully in creation, wherever we make our home in the world. Using the language of poetry, he shows that creation is waiting breathlessly for us to take our place in it, whether on the great stage of political events or in the kitchen garden of a warm, hospitable home.

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.
