Poetry From the On Being Gathering — David Whyte (Opening Night)
An evening of poetry with David Whyte from the first day of our On Being Gathering.
This year, we were thrilled to host our very first On Being Gathering — a four-day coming-together of the On Being community for reflection, conversation, and companionship — at the 1440 Multiversity in the redwoods of Scotts Valley, California. We greeted each day with verse from some of our most beloved poets — and now we’d like to share these delightful moments with all of you. Here is how David Whyte opened for us on Friday night.
David Whyte is a poet and an associate fellow at Saïd Business School at the University of Oxford. He is the author of "The Heart Aroused: Poetry and the Preservation of the Soul in Corporate America" and "Consolations: The Solace, Nourishment and Underlying Meaning of Everyday Words." His most recent book is "The Bell and The Blackbird."
