David shows the transformation that can occur when we truly pay attention in our lives.
Full Description

How easily we forget what it means to be fully present in this remarkable world. Using the language and imagery of poetry, David Whyte shows the transformation that can occur when we pay real attention in our lives. Paying real attention brings to light our first priorities, allowing us to enter a deep form of remembering. The Greeks called this profound state, "the mother of the muses,” believing it to be the source of all human creativity.

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.
