Rodger Kamenetz is an award-winning poet, author and teacher. Of his ten books, his best known is The Jew in the Lotus, the story of rabbis making a holy pilgrimage through India to meet with the Dalai Lama. His account of their historic dialogue became an international bestseller, prompting a reevaluation of Judaism in the light of Buddhist thought.
When The History of Last Night's Dream appeared in 2007, Oprah Winfrey interviewed him on her "Soul Series" program, saying, "This book by Rodger Kamenetz I loved from the cover. Because it's The History of Last Night's Dream:The Hidden Path to the Soul, and if there's a hidden path to the soul I want to know what that is. What's so exciting about this book is that it talks about how there's a whole other life that we are living when we sleep and that our dreams are there as offerings and gifts to us if we only recognize what the dreams are there to teach us, what they're there to tell us about our waking lives."
After retiring from Louisiana State University as a Distinguished Professor of English and Religious Studies, Rodger has devoted himself to working with clients who seek spiritual direction through their dreams. He lives and works in New Orleans.http://www.kamenetz.com
