Publisher Comments:

In the middle of the road of my life I awoke in a dark wood, where the true way was wholly lost. When you fi nd yourself without bearings, as Dante Alighieri voiced so well centuries ago, where will you look for guidance? Throughout the ages, teaches David Whyte, the language of poetry has held the power to lend us courage . . . to give us the vision of those who endured . . . and to hazard ourselves boldly at the fi erce edges of our lives. On Clear Mind,Wild Heart you will join this acclaimed poet and teacher to engage with the poetic imagination as your companion and guide for the diffi cult terrain we are all traversing. Poetry, teaches Whyte, can help us to see beyond the fragile surfaces of our lives and open us to universal cycles and patterns that shape our lives. Delve into this living poetic tradition with six hours of exploration and poetry with Whyte-including the verses of such inspired voices as Emily Dickinson, William Blake, W.B. Yeats, Marina Tsvetaeva, Rainer Maria Rilke, Antonio Machado, and others. Through their words, you will discover how to apprentice yourself to beauty and fi nd a place of belonging where you can hold loss and grief, the challenges of change, and the wonder of new discovery and adventure. The language of poetry takes us outside of our small selves and calls us to look at ourselves and the world with open eyes, teaches David Whyte. Whether you are a lifelong poetry lover or new to its insights and pleasures, Clear Mind, Wild Heart is an inspiring guide to answering that call.
