Work as a Pilgrimage of Identity (David Whyte)
Work as a Pilgrimage of Identity (David Whyte) (2001)
David Whyte explores work as a pilgrimage of Identity. He tells us that the poetic tradition is calling us to be more sensitive, more noble and more authentic in personal development. Poetry is the art of paying attention to creation, to other people and to our own nature.
Whyte insists that the business world would expand greatly if it incorporated the language of poetry. He maintains that poetry is the only language that is large enough for the world we are trying to enter, and that if we expand our language and deepen the conversation, all things are possible.
