A poet like David Whyte turns words into transcendent vehicles for spirit.

David Whyte's reading is what makes this so special.
It has -quite simply- redefined audiobooks for me.
Unlike so many authors or narrators, he doesn't just read, he tells a tale.
His voice is calming and penetrating to listen to.
The content is stunning and deep.

Before purchasing this book, I used audiobooks when reading was not an option- while driving or doing the dishes. It always felt like a compromise. For this book, listening to it made for a more heightened experience than reading it would have.

It offers, in my opinion, the best of what an experience of an audiobook can be.
I highly recommend it.

Research suggests that the presence of the therapist, and how the therapist truly forges a connection with the client in therapy, are the most crucial factors affecting the client’s healing process. An engaged, committed, caring therapist who is mindful of his or her own self - and how that self relates to the client - is the key determinant of how well that client will respond to therapy.

As other reviewers mentioned, the pauses are a little too long. Would prefer an abridged version. Excellent content.
