The Three Marriages

Work, Self & Other
Digital goods limited to 1 product per purchase
Learn how to balance your relationships with work, self, and other
Full Description

Each of us must sustain three marriages in our lives: The marriage with our work and society, the marriage—official or not—with our partner, and the deeper marriage with our emerging selves.

To choose between these relationships is to impoverish them all. Work-life balance means creating a real conversation, a live frontier between all three commitments that enriches each one, allowing it to be simultaneously troubled and emboldened by the others. Join David Whyte at his own frontier for a poetic and compelling investigation of these important commitments of a human life.

Please note: This is a lecture given before a live audience in 2005, not a recording of David Whyte's 2009 book, The Three Marriages: Reimagining Work, Self & Other.
