inspired by lived experience

If you are looking to better understand what the word “psychosis” means, you have landed in the right place. I believe that the way this word is understood in the modern world clouds the judgement of many treatment providers, family members, and sufferers. Indeed mainstream judgements and cultural delusions associated with the medicalized label of schizophrenia can lead to challenging interpersonal relationships, grave misunderstandings and pain and suffering.

Learn to Journey through Madness with a mad person in a way that builds relationship. Understand psychosis in a new way with specific strategies that help you be a healer. Stop being anxious and frustrated and sending people to the hospital, increasing their medications or further marginalizing them.

There is a lot to read and understand on this site in the pages and blog. You may prefer to start with signing up for my email list to learn what Special Message experiences are. This is a great way to keep abreast of opportunities to contribute and participate in the trainings. I believe it is possible to learn to have optimal relationships with people in “psychosis.” Such relationships can be used to help improve society rather than sustain pain, suffering, and oppression.

It is true conflicts associated with “psychosis” can feel very grim. You are not nearly as alone as you may think.  Simple acceptance is often the first step towards transforming your life and relationships.

Across Diagnostic Categories!
Whether you are a sufferer, survivor, provider or loved one, I am almost certain that when we look across diagnostic categories that more people relate to these experiences than you think!

What Will People Think?
When a person first experiences a psychosis or special message emergency, many think a threshold has been crossed from which there is no going back. Often, associates presume the worst possible outcome and go on with their lives as if the sufferer no longer exists.

Treatment?
Often, the focus of treatment is overly protective reality checks and behavioral control. Many experts do not know what to do and utilize an institutional system that does not work and can make things worse. They may vastly underestimate what the sufferer can learn and accomplish.

Original Gangster!?

You might think you know Where he comes from By noting the precision Of his feet as they Rest in sandals. Atop the spattered glass concrete. Looking at the charisma Buzzing within his disposition, You might imagine his room— The bed sheets and blankets Sucking on the mattress, The ugly, throw rug Nestling into the […]

Another Anything for a Little Attention Man

It’s true that a plastic rimmed hat That cost me ten cents at a thrift store Is sitting on my head; And it’s true that they gave me A free plastic trash bag To covers some  of my Old five and dime store clothing display; And it’s true I might have taken the bus; When […]

Legal Reality

Humans inhabit the court room Where right gets discerned from wrong Investing all their damn money Into the justice they long. Anger bounces savagely In tossed and yanked slinky veins That domino amassment Of hate in buzzing refrain. These are the veins that disregard Every glimpse of opposition, Destroying truth in perspectives That also yearn […]

Recreating Myself within a Changing Economy

Seventy years ago my family closed a lumber company in upstate New York. A series of small towns had built up primarily around the business and had to be abandoned and redefined. As is often the case, times change the economy and people have to find new ways to survive. Growing up, I never considered […]
