What to
When Waking
The Disciplines of An Everday Life
David Whyte - 6 CD's 5-1/2 hours

Essential Skills for a Full and Courageous Life

When you think about personal transformation, do you have a picture of who you want to become? Many of us unconsciously create an idealized image of our “awakened” selves—and in doing so, reveals David Whyte, we undermine both the work and reward of genuine transformation.

On What to Remember When Waking, this celebrated poet and teacher offers wisdom for building the essential disciplines that will see us through the difficulties of our human journey—skills of trust, vulnerability, momentum, and courage in the face of the unknown.

Engage in the Great Conversation That Defines Your Life

Our lives are defined by what David Whyte calls the “great conversation”—a give- and-take relationship between our vision of ourselves and the unfolding mystery of reality. Yet there are many conscious and unconscious ways that we often avoid living at this ever-moving frontier. Do you diminish life by attempting to assign names to everything instead of living more robustly with the unknown? Are you turning a blind eye to the invisible help that is all around you? With penetrating insight and gentle guidance, Whyte illuminates the core competencies that you must build in order to fully engage in the richness that life offers—and to express your true work in the world.

What You Can Plan Is Too Small for You to Live

“We do not always move forward because of the plans we make or the effort we expend,” teaches David Whyte. “The conversation itself more often does the true work of transformation.” Make sure the conversation is alive and everything takes its place. Combining a teacher’s ability to provide practical guidance with a poet’s insight into the depths of the human soul, he presents a powerful resource for anyone seeking growth and fulfillment on life’s journey with What to Remember When Waking.

We all like the idea of forgiveness—doing it is the hard part. If you’re holding an old grudge, feeling guilt or shame from past events, or simply unhappy with the way your life is working out, then you’re ready to discover a tested set of tools for real change. On The Power of Radical Forgiveness, Colin Tipping invites you to learn a completely new way to achieve forgiveness—one that will re-frame your perception of the world and your place in it, even as it unburdens you from the past, fills you with peace, and liberates your energy for the unfolding of your highest purpose.


Take Back Your Power with the Tools of Radical Forgiveness

What if there were a way to forgive—that anyone could learn—that would heal emotional wounds and empower both you and the person who hurt you? In this six-CD audio curriculum, Colin Tipping teaches you his revolutionary process for transforming suffering and reconciling differences both personal and professional. More than five hours of instruction based on his acclaimed international workshops gives you a remarkable collection of tested methods for applying Radical Forgiveness in any situation. Join him to discover: the 13 Steps to Radical Forgiveness, an emergency process for forgiving in a heated situation, how to balance your “humanenergy” (your unconscious emotional blockages), the 7-Steps Process for difficulties in the workplace, and how to use the principles of Radical Forgiveness for physical healing.

Course objectives:

  • Recognize that many emotions and actions we associate with forgiveness are actually unrelated to forgiveness.
  • Identify the five stages of, and thirteen steps to, Radical Forgiveness.
  • Demonstrate both points of view on the ego’s role in Radical Forgiveness.
  • Summarize the steps of the seven-step process.

More Than a Practice—a Spiritual Path

“Radical Forgiveness isn’t just a practice; it is nothing less than a spiritual path that calls for all your compassion, humility, and kindness,” explains Colin Tipping. With The Power of Radical Forgiveness, he gives you direct guidance in “making room for the miracle” of this life-changing journey.
