This online course will introduce the practice, aesthetics and insights of Contemplative Haiku.  Haiku is a brief "poetic" expression of ordinary contemplative insight.  It is both a practice and expression of  profound ordinary contemplative realization.

Besides the Haiku practice we will consider the deep resonance teaching:  As the "Plum" haiku implicates:  the phenomenal world manifestation;  the Great Eastern Sun and the Path.

Also we consider the Japanese contemplative aesthetics and the deep source of the Chinese contemplatives.
