Navigating the Difficult Transitions of Life

Every new epoch in the life of an individual or a society announces itself through difficulty, confusion or a sense of losing anchorage. To navigate this threshold we must find a deep, internal solid ground to maintain a conversation with the intangible, the numinous, and the just about to happen. Through humor, commentary and the insights of poetry, David Whyte will look at the part of us that can in fact go ahead, even amidst uncertainty and difficulty, to move beyond the boundaries of a small defended self into a larger more generous participation with the world. 

 A long time Langley resident, David has been bringing his own and others’ poetry to large audiences around the world for over 25 years, using a unique combination of poetry, deep insight and humor to illuminate what it means to be fully here and fully human. 

All proceeds benefit The Hub, a gathering place for youth on Whidbey Island.
