What to Remember when Waking: Disciplines that Transform Everyday Life
Oct 16, 2010
Presented by: David Whyte

Explore the disciplines that can transform everyday life and support an identity robust enough to meet its gifts and demands. Most of us have talents and qualities that live in isolation from the world, never finding a proper outlet or focus. This can lead to a sense of aimless, endless adaptation, rather than a growing feeling of belonging and generosity. There are ways and means to building this sense of belonging; disciplines that develop real maturity in a human being. It is important to recognize that what we look for is not untrammeled happiness, but an enlarging conversation that can encompass even the most harrowing losses. This conversation is not a Pollyanna search for a hidden key to happiness, but a profound ability to make ourselves large enough, brave enough and generous enough for the triumphs and profound difficulties needed to live even the most ordinary human life.

Join celebrated poet, writer and teacher David Whyte to explore at the cyclical, conversational nature of reality and the disciplines that can create an identity robust enough to meet its gifts and demands.
