Sweet Darkness

The Hidden Symmetries of a Human Life
Digital goods limited to 1 product per purchase
David Whyte explores our inherent internal symmetry
Full Description

In each of us, there lives an inner, symmetrical image that attempts to hold our outer experiences in a larger context, making room for revelation. In the poetic tradition, the metaphor for this hidden image is darkness, and in every human life there comes a time when we are asked to have faith in what it can reveal to us. Using a combination of lecture, poetry and story, David Whyte illustrate this symmetry, and the way we are all part of a much greater story than the one we tell ourselves.

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.
