indigenous wisdom teaches about indepth dis-ease

Time to unsettle ourselves from the enforced soma consumption of our owners! And what better way than to hear it from the very people who were never allowed to fully be a part of the dis-eased free-dumb forced on them (and everyone, if you think about it!) from the get-go? A real inspiration, those voices which have not comprimized despite experiencing all manner of reflective reality from those who believe no better is possible.

Methods of creative releases I used while in a psychiatric hospital.

I spent two stays in a psychiatric hospital this past summer. The first time I dealt with nightly manic episodes with psychosis. We all had journals. I dove right into releasing inner demons. Draw...write to release your inner pain. I would write with black ink and push down on the pen as hard as I could. Taking the enrgey to do that for pages made me feel better. I was releasing inner demons and other thoughts, but by pressing down hard on the pen took away someof the anxiety. I highly reccomend this tool.
