Title Details

Running Time
1 Hr. 39 Min.


Krista Tippett, host of award-winning NPR program "On Being", and poet David Whyte discusses several of the life-sized concepts addressed in Tippet's book, Becoming Wise: an inquiry into the mystery and art of living.

In 2014, Tippett received the National Humanities Medal at the White House for 'thoughtfully delving into the mysteries of human existence.' Her radio program, On Being, "shines a light on the most extraordinary voices on the great questions of meaning for our time. Scientists in a variety of fields; theologians from an array of faiths; poets, activists, and many others have all opened themselves up to Tippett's compassionate but searching conversation." Whyte has been a guest on her show.

In Becoming Wise, Tippett distils the insights she has gleaned from years of luminous conversation into a coherent narrative journey, over time and from mind to mind, into what it means to be human. Critics say the book is "a master class in living, individually and collectively. Wisdom emerges through the raw materials of the every day."
