Episode Description

I've heard many speakers over the years and read many books. David Whyte stands out as having had the greatest influence on me. 20 years later, I can still remember direct quotes and the profound experience of hearing him read poetry. I had been an English teacher, and yet, it wasn't until I felt the poetry entering my being through David's deep connection and haunting way of reading each poem that I finally felt, loved and then understood poetry. The way he interwove wisdom and the power of poetry to touch the soul, changed me. In a gentle way, the philosophical messages emphasized by the poetry, led to a self-examination and an infusion of courage, which continues to influence my life choices. His books are equally inspiring. He is self-revelatory and leads by example; not telling us how to live, but showing us how to live a life that is unique to us and the one we were meant to live. We discover what truly matters and find the unknown less frightening than unfulfilling familiarity.
