About-

Lost in the Long White Cloud is both creation story and vision quest of a healer.

Prolific author, David H. Rosen, was the child of creative parents. Free to explore, the sometimes unattended toddler turned into a smart "good boy" with a "bad boy's" energy for funny, sad and scary escapades.

The future author of The Tao of Elvis so successfully impersonated Elvis in junior high, that his gyrations led to "girls, girls, girls" -- and even a marriage proposal from one enamored adolescent's parents!

Rosen's story takes us all over the map. In Greece, David lays awake under the stars with lovely Lolly and decides to become a fisherman. He pays a Parisian prostitute just to listen to her story, which will empower the future Jungian psychiatrist to help a call girl transform herself into a therapist for sexually-abused children. In Denmark, Rosen discovers that the well-provided-for citizens were strangely prone to suicide. Later, Dr Rosen would coin the term "egocide" and publish the magnum opus, Transforming Depression. US propaganda drives David to experience Russia for himself. The ensuing trip is an international "Twist and Shout" dance party in the train aisles!

Lost in the Long White Cloud is a memoir turned cinematic adventure story by the
astonishingly honest, good-hearted and erudite David H. Rosen, MD.
