Sweet Darkness: The Hidden Symmetries of a Human Life

#ad
Many Rivers Press #ad - On this cd, david whyte uses poetry to illustrate this symmetry and the way we are all part of a much greater story than the one we tell ourselves.

In the poetic tradition, the metaphor for this hidden image is darkness, and in every human life there comes a time when we are asked to have faith in what it can reveal to us.
