Crossing the Unknown Sea is about reuniting the imagination with our day to day lives. It shows how poetry and practicality, far from being mutually exclusive, reinforce each other to give every aspect of our lives meaning and direction. For anyone who wants to deepen their connection to their life's work--or find out what their life's work is--this book can help navigate the way. Whyte encourages readers to take risks at work that will enhance their personal growth, and shows how burnout can actually be beneficial and used to renew professional interest. He asserts that too many people blindly trudge through a mediocre work life because so many "busy" tasks prevent significant reflection and analysis of job satisfaction. People often turn to spiritual practice or religion to nurture their souls, but overlook how work can actually be our greatest opportunity for discovery and growth. Crossing the Unknown Sea combines poetry, gifted storytelling and Whyte's personal experience to reveal work's potential to fulfill us and bring us closer to ultimate freedom and happiness.… (mais)

Started out a bit too transcendental for me, but it really grew on me. Whyte offers much to think about: concerning life and work. There is a danger of an idol of authenticity present. But he presents a very life-giving vision we may all need to consider in our present work structures. ( )

I've been looking or meaning in my life for as long as I can remember, this was a good read, but it seemed to take a lot of words to say 'follow your dream' and 'don't be afraid to change your life'.

The second chapter, about a drug addict contemplating suicide is absolutely brilliant. If the rest of the book was of that quality I would give it 6 stars if I could. ( )

I love David Whyte, but love him more in person when he reads his remarkable poetry about life and love and life and death, and love and family, and meaning, etc etc. He does it from a quintessential subaltern Gallic sensibility, which somehow never ceases to capture the imaginations of English speakers all over the world. This is a great little book given to me by great friends at an amazing propitious and dangerous moment, just like great books should change great hands (and great minds)! I recommend it as an introduction to the Mundus Imaginalis of David Whyte and the beginning of your own journey to toward peace, fulfillment and new found prosperity. ( )

Beautifully written book that follows the direction of finding "work" as an answer to the question "Why are you here?" ( )
