Gabriel Rosenstock is an Irish writer who lives in Ireland and works chiefly in the Irish language. Gabriel is significant in the world of nonduality because he explicitly talks about haiku, enlightenment, and the experience of nonduality. Gabriel Rosenstock is the author/translator of over 160 books, including 13 volumes of poetry and haiku in Irish and in English, as well as numerous books for children. He’s given talks and read his works around the world. Gabriel will be delivering the keynote address to Haiku Canada this May 2015, in Victoria, British Columbia. His poetry has also been published in over 80 issues of the Nonduality Highlights which can be accessed at http://www.nonduality.com.
This show is prepared for broadcast on Feb 11, 2015. Featured are three previously recorded interviews on haiku and the work of Gabriel Rosenstock. The first interview is published by Caroline Brennan and is entitled Gabriel Rosenstock’s poetry. It was published on Feb 14, 2014
The next interview is an excerpt from a conversation with Ivan Granger which was heard on nonduality talk on January 7, 2015. In that selection Ivan talks about haiku and Gabriel’s work.
The third and final interview is an excerpt from a YogaHeart radio show conducted in December of 2009, in which Mandee Labelle and I spoke to our guest Clyde. Clyde had never heard any haiku and you get to experience his first experience of haiku.
In conclusion, I read some haiku from Gabriel’s upcoming work, Antlered Stag of Dawn, Haiku in Irish and English, by Gabriel Rosenstock. Translated into Scots by John McDonald and into Japanese by Mariko Sumikura.
