Invitation to The Invitational Identity

What does it mean to have an invitational presence in the world?

David Whyte will look closely at daily practices that cultivate a sense of real physical presence, real conversation and most transformatively, real invitations to the world and to others; invitations to a life that from the outside looks creative and zestful, but springs from a deep form of resting into our bodies and our way of living.

Making real invitations, and asking increasingly beautiful questions of life - of others and of ourselves - is one of the foundational ways we can practice and shape a more beautiful mind. It is interesting to think that we might be able to practice shaping our imaginations, our perceptions and our minds, just as we practice a musical instrument, and that there are ways of improving ourselves that are pleasurable and rewarding in and of themselves, without necessarily having puritanical goals.

The creative life is no source of immunity from the difficulties of existence, but a creative, invitational life is one that has as much rest, joy, intellectual and physical enthusiasm and surprise as it does grief, stress and angst.

Through David's latest thoughts and work, we will look at the role of the imagination as a very physical faculty of perception - not as the ability to think up new things, but as a central integrative intelligence able to discern the complex patterns that cause stress when we are not living from this center, but understanding, calmness and right action when we are.

Paying attention to this unique intelligence requires stopping, silence and the practice of silence, and often reveals the internal and external changes needed to meet newly understood circumstances.

David will look at the way the imagination allows us to create a central leverage point from which to act; one that relies less on engaging the will and more on a way of being in the world that engages a rested, alert intelligence with the courage to simplify, to act and above all, to have a focused life worth living at the center of all our many endeavors.
