About this product
- Description<b>Crossing the Unkwn Sea</b> is about reuniting the imagination with our day to day lives. It shows how poetry and practicality, far from being mutually exclusive, reinforce each other to give every aspect of our lives meaning and direction. For anyone who wants to deepen their connection to their life s work<b></b>or find out what their life s work is<b></b>this book can help navigate the way.Whyte encourages readers to take risks at work that will enhance their personal growth, and shows how burut can actually be beneficial and used to renew professional interest. He asserts that too many people blindly trudge through a mediocre work life because so many busy tasks prevent significant reflection and analysis of job satisfaction. People often turn to spiritual practice or religion to nurture their souls, but overlook how work can actually be our greatest opportunity for discovery and growth. <b>Crossing the Unkwn Sea</b> combines poetry, gifted storytelling and Whyte s personal experience to reveal work s potential to fulfill us and bring us closer to ultimate freedom and happiness.</p>
- Author BiographyPoet David Whyte grew up among the hills and valleys of Yorkshire, England. The author of four books of poetry, he is one of the few poets to take his perspectives on creativity into the field of organizational development, where he works with many American and international companies. He holds a degree in Marine Zoology, and has traveled extensively, including working as a naturalist guide and leading anthropological and natural history expeditions. He brings this wealth of experiences to his poetry, lectures and workshops.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. In addition to his four volumes of poetry, David Whyte is the author of <b>The Heart Aroused: Poetry and the Preservation of the Soul in Corporate America</b>, published by Doubleday/Currency, an audio cassette lecture series, and an album of poetry and music. His new book of prose, <b>Crossing the Unknown Sea: Work as Pilgrimage of Identity</b> was published in hardcover by Riverhead Books in March, 2001, and is coming out in paperback in April, 2002. He lives with his family in the Pacific Northwest.</p></p>
