The Heart Aroused

Poetry & the Preservation of the Soul in Corporate America
Digital goods limited to 1 product per purchase
Widen your understanding of work and the soul—fostering creativity in organizational life.
Full Description

On this reading of his best-selling prose book, poet David Whyte shows us that our definitions of work, of management and of how an individual survives and prospers in the workplace are no longer large or generous enough for the increasingly complex and fast-moving world. Using the work of great poets such as Rainer Maria Rilke, Antonio Machado and T.S. Eliot, The Heart Aroused shows us that the best way to respond to the current call for creativity in organizational life is to deepen and widen both our understanding of work and of the individual soul who walks through the office door every day.

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.
