Each time, I have been very moved by what you say and how you've said it. Thank you for being a voice of inspiration, kindness, acceptance, and honesty through this strangely beautiful and transformative time.
Tremendous possibilities now in focus, realizing the wisdom behind thinking and living with the theme that no matter what, “everything is still possible.” Can’t thank you enough. Every session gets better and better.
Thank you for taking us deep into the inner journey. A new door has opened, actually it’s an old, old garden gate and my job was to untangle the overgrowth that was hiding it.
David Whyte is an internationally renowned poet and author, and a scintillating and moving speaker. Behind these talents lies a very physical attempt to give voice to the wellsprings of human identity, human striving and, most difficult of all, the possibilities for human happiness.
His talks, to audiences of all persuasions, on everything from literature to leadership, heartbreak to healing; mindfulness to mythology, weave poetry, story and commentary into a moving, almost physical experience of the themes that run through every human life: joy and loss, vulnerability and vitality, courage and despair, beauty and necessary heartbreak. He draws from hundreds of memorized poems, his own and those of other beloved poets such as Wordsworth, Emily Dickinson, Keats, Pablo Neruda, Fleur Adcock and the sonnets of Shakespeare.
He is the author of ten books of poetry, three books of prose on the transformative nature of work; a widely-acclaimed, best-selling book of essays, and an extensive audio collection.Learn More
There is something extraordinary about a collaboration between virtuoso talents who are also close friends; the result can transcend the sum of its individually-remarkable parts to create a harmony neither could have imagined alone. Such is the case with this collection, years in the making. Owen’s evocative music is a perfect creative complement to David’s words, and the guest contributors - Mícheál Ó Súilleabháin, Nóirín Ní Riain and other luminaries - add layers of richness and subtle complexity to the conversation between these two artists.
