NOTE: This is an excerpt from the two-part, 60-minute DVD.

Poetry allows us to acknowledge the fullness of our being in ways that are often denied in daily life. This denial has often proved both injurious to the soul and bad for business. Poetry unites us with the soul of the world.

David White is author of several books of poetry and a book of prose and poetry, The Heart Aroused. Whyte maintains that poetry provides a treasure of wisdom that gives guidance in times of crisis. The insights of poetry can facilitate an awakening of vision and a breakthrough from the paralysis caused by confusion, doubt and humdrum routine.
