The Healing Spirit of Haiku beings with a brief history of haiku, although it is not a book about haiku. Rather, it is haibun of the psyche, an exchange of poetry and prose between two old friends who set out to accomplish a soulful journey together.
Dr. David H. Rosen is a physician, psychiatrist, and Jungian analyst. The vast array of his interests include finding meaning in suffering; spirituality as it relates to healing; dreams; all kinds of creativity, especially visual art and haiku; and practicing what he preaches.
<br> Rosen is the author of eight books, including
<i>The Tao of Jung: The Way of Integrity; The Healing Spirit of Haiku</i> with co-author Joel Weishaus;
<i>Transforming Depression: Healing the Soul through Creativity</i> (now in its third edition) written after interviewing survivors of jumps off the Golden Gate Bridge, and treating many suicidally depressed patients;
<i>Medicine as Human Experience</i> with co-author Dr David Reiser, a classic in the field. Rosen's books have been translated into many languages.
<br> The initial holder of the McMillan Professorship in Analytical Psychology at Texas A&amp;M University, Rosen hosts the Fay Lectures and edits the Fay Books in Analytical (Jungian) Psychology. Though retired, he is Affiliate Professor in Psychiatry at the Oregon Health &amp; Science University.
<br> Joel Weishaus was born in New York. He edited
<i>On the Mesa: An Anthology of Bolinas Writing</i> (1971). His translation of the
<i>Ch'an Buddhist Oxherding: A Reworking of the Zen Text</i> was published in 1971. He also wrote the Introduction and Notes to Thomas Merton's
<i>Woods, Shore, Desert</i> (1983). Weishaus was an Adjunct Curator at the University of New Mexico's Fine Arts Museum, Albuquerque, and a Writer-in-Residence at UNM's Center for Southwest Research. His book,
<i>The Healing Spirit of Haiku</i>, co-authored with David Rosen and illustrated by Arthur Okamura, was published in 2004, and republished by Wipf and Stock in 2014. Weishaus'
<i>Feels Like Home Again: Collected Poems</i> was published in 2014. Weishaus was Visiting Faculty at Portland State University (2003-09) and a Research Fellow at The University of California, Santa Barbara (2011-12). He is presently Artist-in-Residence at Pacifica Graduate Institute, Carpinteria, CA. Having published over forty book reviews, essays, and critiques, Weishaus is also noted as a Digital Literary Artist.
"I think a book should be intelligent, well-crafted, and beautiful. A book is not a message to grasp but an object to love. I love this new book of haiku and images and will be happy to be in its presence, touch it, and feast on it for many years. It is a perfect example of John Keats' idea of soul-making: transforming the everyday into beautiful and probing reflection. It is what Wallace Stevens called 'a mirror with a voice.'"
<br> -- Thomas Moore, author of
<i>Care of the Soul</i> and
<i>Dark Nights of the Soul</i>
<br> "This deeply human dialogue of haiku and commentary follows in the footsteps of Issa and Buson. Rosen and Weishaus express their psychological wisdom with lightness, humor, and a uniquely personal touch. A treasure!"
<br> -- Claire Douglas, author of
<i>Translate this Darkness</i> and
<i>The Woman in the Mirror</i>
<br> "An altogether pleasurable book indeed!"
<br> --Robert Creeley, author of
<i>Life and Death</i>
<br> "This book of texts and encounters, of poetic moments and prose commentaries, of interpersonal responses, has the feeling of a work that is both very ancient and utterly contemporary. It enacts what it's about--a spiritual journey, a creative healing."
<br> --Edward Hirsch, author of
<i>Lay Back the Darkness</i> and
<i>Wild Gratitude</i>
<br> "To have one's soul evoked by reading, that in itself can be a scared act. To me, since forever, el libro es sancta: a book is blessed--for inside, there can be water glistening to moisten the parched throat, and a thunder of wings that can carry us to a homeplace where exists essential remembrance of 'what truly matters.' Haiku, to me, is the quintessential story form, one that like a twilight is meant to be walked through with care, so as to see and feel the clarity of things that cannot be seen from a dusky afar. This work you hold in your hands offers that twilight walk, and more."
<br> --Clarissa Pinkola Estes, Ph.D., author of
<i>Women Who Run with the Wolves</i> and
<i>The Gift of Story</i>
