David Whyte, a best-selling author and poet, who is also a Fortune 500 consultant and naturalist, will bring his inspirational messages to the La Jolla Yoga Center on Jan. 28 and 29.

The center, which is known for the quality of its programs and is equipped with state-of-the art acoustics to match its exceptional aesthetic, will present “An Evening with David Whyte from 7 to 9 p.m on Jan. 28. The next day his subject will be “Simple and Pure: The Art of Creating a Beautiful Mind, in a program that runs from noon to 6 p.m. with a one-hour break.

Whyte comes with his penetrating insight and gentle guidance, offering a practical alternative in response to the increasingly tense, harried, forceful and exhausting way that so many are trying to survive or create a satisfying life for themselves.

His talk will outline a meaningful and fully alive way of being in the world in a way that engages a rested, alert intelligence with the courage to simplify, to act, and above all, to have a life worth living at the center of our endeavors.
As part of their commitment for being a center of inspiration and a supportive partner through the difficulties and joys of the human journey, La Jolla Yoga Center is hosting Whyte’s presentations.

Owner Jeanie Carlstead is not alone in being deeply affected by his work. Whyte has created a readership and listenership in four normally mutually exclusive areas: the psychological and theological worlds of philosophical enquiry, the personal and interpersonal world of relationships, the literary world that most poets inhibit, and the world of vocation, work, and organizational leadership.

“It is this combination along with his scientific and close encounters with nature that makes his work so powerfully relevant in all areas of life” said Jeanie Carlstead.
