What a Shaman sees in a Mental Hospital


Another article about the dissonance between “mental illness” and spiritual emergency. I like this article from renowned and beloved Malidoma Somé because he goes into detail about what specifically is happening on a phenomenological level in the energetic, psychic, and spiritual realms when someone is in psychological crisis. He also goes into the wounds we carry as westerners, and how we can heal these wounds. He talks about the importance of ceremony, and what specifically might be done to reconcile the energetic rifts that have been created from our disconnection from nature and ancestral memory.
