In this encouraging guide for both beginning and experienced haiku writers, Margaret D. McGee shows how writing haiku can be a consciously spiritual practice for seekers of any faith tradition or no tradition.

Drawing from her experience as a spiritual retreat leader and published haiku writer, McGee takes the mystery and intimidation out of beginning to write haiku. For those already on their way, she provides helpful hints and exercises to broaden and deepen both your haiku artistry and your appreciation of haiku as part of your spiritual life. With humor and encouragement, she offers step-by-step exercises for both individuals and writing groups, and shows how haiku can help you:

  • Pay attention to the world around you to connect with sacred moments
  • Overcome fear and self-doubt to access your innate creativity
  • Explore and use haiku together with spiritual practices in your own faith tradition
  • Make haiku a spiritual part of your daily routine
Margaret D. McGee, a writer, teacher, and leader of spiritual workshops and retreats, is author of Sacred Attention: A Spiritual Practice for Finding God in the Moment (SkyLight Paths), and Stumbling Toward God: A Prodigals Return. Her haiku have been published in journals such as The Herons Nest, bear creek haiku, and Wisteria.
