More About The Heart Aroused by David Whyte
 
 
 
Overview
When The Heart Aroused appeared in hardcover in November 1994, it left readers clamoring for author David Whyte as he crisscrossed the country on the lecture circuit with bestselling authors Clarissa Pinkola Estes (Women Who Run with the Wolves) and Thomas Moore (Care of the Soul). Now available in Currency paperback, The Heart Aroused is poised to reach a new wave of readers.

In this peerless book, Whyte shows how the language of prophecy, poetry, and enlightenment give voice to the most creative--yet hidden--desires. He shows that the best way to respond to the current call for creativity in organizational life is to overcome habitual fear and reticence and bring full, passionate, creative human souls, with all their urgencies and unnamed longings, right inside the office.

When Whyte, who often consults for corporate clients, walks into an organization, it is not just to advise, strategize, and make recommendations. Instead, he clarifies personal--not organizational--difficulties at work by placing them in the age-old context of poetry and story. To follow Whyte through his brilliant, soulful discussions is to raft the turbulent stream of conflicting currents that make up people's lives inside American organizations.

Only a poet could produce such a provocative analysis of today's widespread disenchantment with business--or such a daring prescription for using the classics of poetry to revitalize the soul of corporate America.
