A poet like David Whyte turns words into transcendent vehicles for spirit. With What to Remember When Waking, this celebrated writer and teacher reveals how our reality is created through conversation with the universe - and how we can create an identity robust enough to meet life's gifts and demands.
On this new six hour audio-learning course, Whyte tells us how to live at the frontier between the spiritual and physical needs of everyday life; how deeper states of attention amd intention can transform our own identity; and how we become more courageous. more present to the deeper understanding of ourselves, our loved ones and our world.

I did not like the format of this presentation compared to other David Whyte CD's I have heard, in which he recites poetry on a theme and weaves it together with commentary -- generally in front of a live audience. This presentation was more like a long talk interspersed with poetry here and there. He sounded weary and uninspired.
I was captivated by several of the newer poems, particularly "My Daughter Asleep." However, I would not purchase another program of this length by DW, preferring to return to the live-recorded CD's available through his website.
Whyte has a unique voice and perspective, and I've really enjoyed listening to him. This is definitely a situation where the audio book delivers more than I'd get just reading the book on my own.
Very deep and thought provoking. His personal reflections added to the story and a better understanding of his poetry. The reflection on his mother touched me. It allowed me to open up to other thoughts of loved ones who have passed.
Thank you for having David narrate his own book. It provides much more meaning.
