William Butler Yeats – A Journey of Companioning YOUR Greatness shares a personal journey that the writer has taken in learning to appreciate the blessing and the invitation from W. B. Yeat’s poetry
In appreciation of his poetry I am writing A Journey with Mr Yeats – 10 Poems to Companion YOUR Greatness. This book is written with one clear intention. This is to invite you, the reader, on a journey of companioning YOUR greatness (These are the Clouds).
This book is subtitled 10 Poems to Companion YOUR Greatness. It includes those poems which invite you to live from your deep heart’s core (Lake Isle of Innisfree). Through the invitation from the direct experience of breakthrough you know that in the words of William Butler Yeats, “I am blessed and can bless” (Vacillation IV)

William Butler Yeats Poems
There are many wonderful William Butler Yeats poems to choose from. I have chosen ten that I feel a deep heart’s core connection with.
From the period beginning February 2019 I will be adding more reflections on each of these ten poems. Each poem will have its own page and related blog posts. This will include: –
- The full text of the poem.
- An audio recording of the poem.
- A video of the reading of the poem (where available)
On each page of the William Butler Yeats poem will be a sidebar which will take you to related poems, songs, quotes and other resources.
In particular there will be related practices. Without committed daily practice or practices there will be no focused journey of Companioning YOUR Greatness
