THE BELL AND THE BLACKBIRD: Living Between the Enlightened and the Everyday
First Presbyterian Church of Santa Monica
Santa Monica, CA
Share this event:

O love.
There is a door
beneath everything
you'll walk right by
if you dont stop to look
with that troubled heart
and a loving eye.

Join David Whyte for part of the debut reading for his newly released book of poetry, The Bell and the Blackbird, looking at the traumas, joy, griefs, surprises, humour and essential conversations all human beings come to experience in even the most average life.

This morning should help participants set a course for their own future life by following David's  own parallel journey from the ancient and mythic of his mother's Ireland to the contemporary pilgrim places of Connemara and the Islands of the far Celtic West, from the mist-shrouded moors of his native Yorkshire to the bedsides of those about to take the greatest journey any of us can take into the unknown. Above all, the morning should convey a sense of the extraordinary, the numinous and the suddenly understood in what we inaccurately call the everyday.
