A poetry evening filled with fierce explorations of love.

Each one of us grows almost against our will into a steadily unfolding story where the

horizon gets broader and more mysterious. There is no other life than the one that involves

this constant beckoning, this invitation to the fiercer aspects of existence.

This will be a time spent with David Whyte where he asks us those questions that do not

produce easy answers but which help us to re-imagine ourselves, our world and our part in

it. Especially, questions which work to reshape our identities, helping us to become larger,

more generous, more courageous; and more loving.

DAVID WHYTE Poet, Author, Lecturer 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,

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
