Straight Outta State Hospital

Instead of being afraid and promoting symptom suppression, we need to refine public understanding of what psychosis is: something to which most of us can relate. We need an open up dialogue about the emergency state and to challenge the medicalized cultural delusion that these experiences lead to irreversible brain damage. Finally, we need to learn to call upon to shamanic teachers who know how to live well with psychosis for help.

The two years of crisis I went through during and after my incarceration was a challenge. In fact, it was so bad, I wrote an award-winning book about it.

The Male Heart

In the company of his own fellowship A coldness impales the male persona As he stands in a barren winter field Where the rapidly shifting wind throws his Chilled stiff body into nothingness. He stands trying to conceal his shiver. Above the infinite eye of the night Glares down upon the stupid smallness Of his […]
