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.

It’s Never Too Late to Assert Yourself

In a personal story I am currently working on for publication in Mad in America, I am starting to realize the impact of the 2015 release of my award-winning memoir: Fighting for Freedom in America: Memoir of a “Schizophrenia” and Mainstream Cultural Delusions. Six year later I am still dealing with a sense of alienation that preoccupies me. I […]

Transforming my Energy Toward Course Creation

It has been a long time since I have written a blog post. I turned my efforts away from creative essays and introspective exploration. Instead, I focused on creating a 12-16 hour Master Class entitled: Redefining “Psychosis:” A Cultural Approach to Working with Madness, A Roadmap to the Rabbit Hole. Time away from weekly writing […]

What you can Learn from my DIY Online Store Launch:

It has been another stressful month of intense weekend work and low levels of published output on my blog.
