His work looks at the larger, timeless relationship of human beings to their world, to their relationship with creation, with others or with death.
He looks at the sufferings and joys that come with revelations and the necessities of belonging to specific families, peoples and places.
In the last few years he has begun to appear at literary gatherings in the US and the UK such as the Oxford, Ledbury, San Miguel and Ojai poetry festivals and his poetry is beginning to be spoken of in the same breath as other major contemporary, Irish American and English poets.
Join David Whyte, through the revelations of poetry and the poetic tradition, for an evening looking into some of the bold, courageous, robustly vulnerable and sometimes painful steps in bringing our seemingly interior states out into the world to do, to achieve and above all to give.
Probably the most inspirational session of the whole course.
Whoever decided to include this in the program should be congratulated.
David Whyte participates in theological conferences and retreats through keynote lectures, workshops and discussion panels with practitioners and theologians of many traditions.
Using his own and other’s poetry, he brings the understandings of the poetic tradition to bear on many of the great cyclical questions of existence: how we see our lives, and our deaths; how we view others and their presence or absence; and, perhaps most importantly, what we dare to believe and what we are afraid of believing: an honest appraisal of our relationship to God, the natural world, darkness, the appearance and disappearance of form and friendship and the difficult apprenticeship to our own disappearance.
David Whyte's steadily burgeoning readership and listenership grew organically in almost all corners of the globe until it finally created a critical mass of recognition.His work in organizations around the world takes many different forms, from formal dinner talks and conference keynotes, to retreats and seminars.He has an especial affection for his long term work inside specific organizations, often over years, building a critical mass of executives and leaders who have learned through his work, the language, metaphors and urgent necessities of conversational leadership.He looks at the way this foundational interior conversation enables those in positions of responsibility to make sense of the hundreds of exterior public conversations, which can entrap and besiege them.His work is not only sustaining and nourishing for individuals irrespective of the organization for which they work, but also revitalizing and emboldening for those who work together day after day and who wish to bring a fresh perspective and a fresh language to their shared endeavors.
