Psychiatric Epidemic – Part 2: The Scope of the Epidemic

These videos are great way to revisit or be introduced to Robert Whitaker’s work. This is a talk he delivered in Denmark. Pass it on! In Part 2, Whitaker digs down deep into the research pertaining to psychiatric medication and demonstrates quite clearly that the studies paint a very different picture that the prevalent common wisdom of the day. What is the reason for this discrepancy? Misinformation? Disinformation? … [click on title for the rest of the post]

A few aphorisms for the day…

I woke up to these thoughts this morning: Often love requires being with hate — yours and others. Often patience requires being with impatience — yours and others. The light shines on the dark so that it can be revealed. Surrender is the relinquishing of the dark to the light so that it might be seen. Surrender is grace, love and patience coming to fruition. … [click on title for the rest of the post]

There is so much more than the body and what the drugs do to the body

There is so much more than the body and what the drugs do to the body. Everything I’ve done in my life (and every pill I popped into my mouth) has made me who I am…able to fight this fight and understand it from many different standpoints. I am grateful for every moment now and in wonder of the way life’s tapestry works. What a mystery that that which harmed me too has been what has forged me that I might help others. I’m perpetually in awe of how truth holds such paradox. … [click on title for the rest of the post]

Okay…cool thing to report folks

I just posted this on Facebook and am not ready to write more about this process as I'm learning about it as I go and in development. That said I wanted to pass it on to readers who might be "hypersensitive" from psychiatric drug withdrawal because it's becoming clear to me that as difficult as that condition is, it's also, if allowed to transform and heal, an amazing capacity that our bodies have to understand and know things about our environment and reality in general. So for anyone who might need this information so that they might move forward and trust the wisdom of their body I am sharing this status update of my very much in process learning and healing experience. … [click on title for the rest of the post]

The language of life

by PAUL WOODWARD Within the mechanistic worldview that shapes the way most of us view life, each human being and other living organism is seen as a discrete entity — a form that possesses and is animated by its own life. Lives come into existence, go out of existence, and between times interact with each other, while all along retaining autonomy in varying degrees. Human beings, as creatures whose powers have been extended and amplified through technology, supposedly possess the highest degree of autonomy, living lives steered by the exercise of our freewill. Having become so full of ourselves we have mostly lost the sense of life forming a seamless whole. We fail to see that human being is a conceptual construct fabricated through a leap of imagination. … [click on title for the rest of the post]
