    in Poetry


     


    Join host Bonnie Bright with Poet and Jungian Analyst, Paul Watsky, as they discuss the ways in which Jungian psychology and poetry converge. Paul Watsky shares the story of how he was led to both careers, and shares his work that opens the door into the deep poetic leanings of soul. Join us in the month of October for "Telling the Difference," the only book of poetry in the 2012 free online Depth Psychology Alliance Book Club at www.depthpsychologyalliance.com.


    "To quote Norman O. Brown quoting Euripedes, "God made an opening for the unexpected," and at long last we have what many of us have greatly desired: a collection of poems by Paul Watsky.


    "Paul Watsky's is a singular voice in contemporary poetry, with a range that encompasses the wry, the mordant, the laugh-out-loud funny and the deeply moving, often within the same poem." -Charles Martin


    Paul Watsky is the author of the poetry collection Telling The Difference grew up in New York City and began writing poetry during high school. He now lives and works in San Francisco, where he earns his living as a Jungian analyst.
