Read full description of the books:
The poetry of David Whyte is one of the most powerful I have ever read. It speaks directly to the soul, that hidden flame, that too often unheard voice... His words speak of something old, deep, something true and terrible in its beauty and fury. It's Nature in its raw and overwhelming presence.
There's not enough praise in me to convey how powerful and beautiful and beyond moving these poems are. A lot of adjectives; that's all I have. Adjectives and words: fire, belonging, body, earth, mountain, circle, voice, cry, word, soul, revelation, song...
What will you do
and what will you say
in the times
when you are left alone
to meet, like this,
the quiet fury of the world?

Read information about the authorPoet 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 seven books of poetry and three 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.
His 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 enquiry and the world of vocation, work and organizational leadership.
An Associate Fellow at Said Business School at the University of Oxford, he is one of the few poets to take his perspectives on creativity into the field of organizational development, where he works with many European, American and international companies. In spring of 2008 he was awarded an honorary doctorate from Neumann College, Pennsylvania.
In organizational settings, using poetry and thoughtful commentary, he illustrates how we can foster qualities of courage and engagement; qualities needed if we are to respond to today’s call for increased creativity and adaptability in the workplace. He brings a unique and important contribution to our understanding of the nature of individual and organizational change, particularly through his unique perspectives on Conversational Leadership.
