Consolations: The Solace, Nourishment and Underlying Meaning of Everyday Words

Consolations: The Solace, Nourishment and Underlying Meaning of Everyday Words by David Whyte
English | November 7th, 2019 | ISBN: 1786897636 | 185 pages | EPUB | 1.84 MB

In Consolations David Whyte unpacks aspects of being human that many of us spend our lives trying vainly to avoid - loss, heartbreak, vulnerability, fear - boldly reinterpreting them, fully embracing their complexity, never shying away from paradox in his relentless search for truth. Beginning with 'Alone' and closing with 'Work', each chapter in this life affirming book is a meditation on meaning and context, an invitation to shift and broaden our perspectives on life: pain and joy, honesty and anger, confession and vulnerability, the experience of feeling overwhelmed and the desire to run away from it all.
