Publisher's Description

"With this insightful book, David Whyte offers people in corporate life an opportunity to reach into the forgotten and ignored creative life (their own and the corporation’s) and literally water their souls with it. The result is a very well written book that can truly heal."—Clarissa Pinkola Estés, PH.D., author of Women Who Run With the Wolves and The Gift of Story
 
Find professional and personal fulfilment through the poetry of both classic and modern masters—now revised and updated
 
Has your work lost its meaning? Have you forgotten the goals you hoped to achieve when you began your career? Are you afraid of pursuing your dreams?
 
In The Heart Aroused, David Whyte brings his unique perspective as poet and consultant to the workplace, showing readers how fulfilling work can be when they face their fears and follow their dreams. Going beneath the surface concerns about products and profits, organization and order, Whyte addresses the needs of the heart and soul, and the fears and desires that many workers keep hidden.
At a time when corporations are calling on employees for more creativity, dedication, and adaptability, and workers are trying desperately to balance home and work, this revised edition of The Heart Aroused is the essential guide to reinvigorating the soul.

Author Bio

DAVID WHYTE grew up among the hills and valleys of Yorkshire, England. He is one of the few poets to take his perspectives on creativity into the field of corporate development, educating workers of many American and international companies about how to foster qualities of courage and engagement in their careers. In addition to four volumes of poetry, he has published an audiocassette lecture series and an album of poetry and music. His latest book is Crossing the Unknown Sea: Work as Pilgrimage of Identity. He lives with his family in the Pacific Northwest.

Editorial Reviews

"The Heart Aroused is truly extraordinary. It brings a poet's ever-deepening imagination to the world of business and work. It steadies us, gives us grounding, and offers profound images for locating our work deep in the soul. The very style of the book presents a new dimension of language and reflection, with a contemplative tempo, that could help us radically and fruitfully reimagine the workplace."
-Thomas Moore, author of Care of the Soul and Soul Mates

"David Whyte's images resonate to the core. As a poet who has taken his work into the corporate world, he pioneers a vision that is at once practical and illuminating."
-Marion Woodman, Jungian analyst and author of Leaving My Father's House

"With this insightful book, David Whyte offers people in corporate life an opportunity to reach into the forgotten and ignored creative life… and literally water their souls with it. The result is a… book that can truly heal."
-Clarissa Pinkola Estés, Ph.D., author of Women Who Run with the Wolves
