Dr. Norman E. Rosenthal – Poetry Rx: How 50 Inspiring Poems Can Heal and Bring Joy to Your Life

Airing Thursday, April 22, 2021, at 5:00 PM PST / 8:00 PM EST

Imagine a therapist writing a prescription for “Do Not Go Gentle into That Good Night” by Dylan Thomas or “Hope Is the Thing With Feathers” by Emily Dickinson or a Shakespeare sonnet—as well as prescribing an anxiety medication. Might poetry be a vaccine for the emotions?

My guest this week on Vox Novus, Dr. Norman E. Rosenthal, is that therapist! World-renowned for his research on seasonal affective disorder (SAD) and pioneering the light therapy to treat it, Dr. Rosenthal says that poetry is potent medicine. He has researched other innovative psychiatric treatments and is the author of several books including the New York Times bestseller Transcendence: Healing and Transformation through Transcendental Meditation and the national bestseller Super Mind. His website is his https://www.normanrosenthal.com/ and he joins me to discuss his path, his innovative work, and his new book, Poetry Rx: How 50 Inspiring Poems Can Heal and Bring Joy to Your Life.
