David Whyte and the Fire of Invitations

How many ways can you be invited to dive in?  How many questions can one Englishman, Jungian-esque genius poet ask a crowd of 300 people and evoke a sigh of truthful recognition? The reality check.  The just wakeup questions. The I can’t look away moment.  How many poems and stories about “the ecology of being human” can you take in and not feel like you are on the 5th consecutive TED talk by one of your favorite speakers and you need an out-breath?

“What is the most important conversation you aren’t having right now?”

“What are the conversations you shouldn’t be continuing to have anymore?”

“What promises are meant to be kept?

“What promise or promises should you be breaking?”
