Waking After a Lifetime: Ingrid’s Voice

This bodymind named Ingrid has so much to say…and what seeks expression is not just for the sake of my own healing, but to serve as a beacon for anyone on a similar path, who needs to know they are not alone. Mine is a path of emerging from profound trauma, adversity, and lack, and of living in the world as highly sensitive, gifted, neurodiverse, and spiritually awakening. We are the people who so often find ourselves in the offices of professional helpers…and I will write for them, too, as it is imperative that those who would presume to walk with us, understand what actually helps…and be willing to challenge that which does not…even though this will take them straight into the heart of their own pain....

Resisting-Illegitimate-Authority — By Bruce E. Levine

New book: Bruce Levine has been one of my very favorite authors in the world of critical psych for a long time. He's got a great new book available now. I highly recommend it. This article includes a link to a free PDF excerpt of the book. ....

The eugenic history of psychiatry is in our bodies

Part of what those of us injured by psychiatry are dealing with is the cellular knowledge that this history is in our very nervous systems via psychiatric institution, it’s proponents and the drugs used to suppress our beautiful sensitive human natures. We are not insane — we are however subject to the bullshit that has been perpetrated against us. Yes the body keeps score. If and when we allow the consciousness of these crimes against humanity to arise out of our bodies we can become a force to be reckoned with. May we all become conscious of what is happening all over the planet and within us. ...

Justice for those harmed by psychiatry…

We've gone to a local church twice for their Sunday service. It's very close by and they vocally embrace and invite marginalized populations...ie: the homeless, victims of domestic violence, all people of color, and the LGBTQ communities. They also have a prison ministry etc etc. Totally into Social Justice, right? ...

The biggest issue we face: #WorldMentalHealthDay

The biggest problem in mental health treatment is the idea that anybody need be treated at all. What people really need is a safe space to be who and what they are. Once people are in a safe place they simply need to be supported in trusting their own process. ...

Talking about suicide, suicidal feelings and the desire to die. It’s healthy — Suicide prevention day

Joel Marcus, MD – the psychiatrist who drugged me into a toxic stupor (Berkeley, CA)

In the spirit of #METOO enough is enough. Psychiatry has destroyed my life far worse than the two times I have been raped. (I don't speak for everyone, but that is true for me.)  The fact is many lives have been harmed as mine has by psychiatry.  Too many people have been abused, sickened and disabled by psychiatry and no one takes responsibility for it and most of society refuses to acknowledge it's happening. It's time to end such treatment and trauma.

Mourning, loss and vision

This will aways be in my heart: that people will be offered meaningful options to toxic psychiatry and that a kaleidoscopic infrastructure of care will rise up as a result of our holding this vision and passing it on. Multiple options are offered that change as people grow and change. Healing is not stagnant...what we need changes daily and by the minute. That the system will be fluid and alive, growing and changing just like those who need healing within it. That the "system" will actually be the village. Real egalitarian community...a world in which every human being is equal to every other human being.  ...

Psych drugs harm. Let’s get high profile MDs and celebrities – spreading the message

There are quite a few relatively mainstream doctors now talking about the harms of benzodiazepines and anti-depressants on social media. As usual other psychiatric drugs (neuroleptics, anti-convulsants, -- called anti-psychotics and mood stabilizers, etc) are given short shrift. This is about informed consent. If people don't know about the very serious potential risks involved in... Continue Reading →

Psychiatric abuse is like domestic violence…

Once the sensitive becomes aware and conscious of the coercion it ceases to be subtle...it becomes obvious blatant violence against the soul of humanity and that is when things get really tricky. How to escape the abuse? When all of society is telling you you need it? Psychiatric abuse is very much like domestic violence except with domestic violence there is large sectors of society now that that acknowledge it's very real... ...
