New video about ways to compassionately be present with someone in emotional pain

In this video introduced by good friend Will Hall, I share about being with people in extreme states for over 25,000 hours since 1980. There’s a brief experiential exercise at the end you could try, that helps caregivers be more compassionately present with people in extreme states and other emotional pain. The video is from the recent RD Laing gathering at Esalen Institute.

Mad in America: Monarch eTNS Inspires “Stop the Psychiatric Abuse of Children!” (SPAC!)

Hi All,

I co-authored this brief article with good friend Dr. Peter Breggin, about the new international advocacy project we’re starting called “Stop the Psychiatric Abuse of Children” (SPAC!). Please join us in spreading the alert about the new children’s Monarch eTNS electrical brain device approved by the FDA, and in opposing all the psychiatric harm done to children that we document in our article.

Thank you!

Mad in America: FDA Approves Using Electricity All Night Long on Children’s Brains

Hi All,

Here’s my article about the newly FDA-approved Orwellian electric brain device for so-called ADHD, that’s kept stuck on children’s foreheads all night while they sleep. It has side effects of headache, fatigue, teeth clenching, and sleep problems.

Please speak out against this psychiatric human rights abuse being done to minor children who can’t say no to it happening to them.

Mad in America: Reflections on 25,000 Hours of Being With People in Extreme States

Hi All,

Here’s my brief new essay on 40 years of compassionately being with people in extreme states and other forms of emotional and spiritual suffering, without viewing or relating to them based on the pathologizing psychiatric disease model.

The Dr. Peter Breggin Hour: Let’s Talk About Dreams – Recorded Discussion

Hi All,

Here’s the recorded discussion I had with Peter Breggin on the healing value of exploring both the personal and archetypal levels of dreams, including when people are in extreme states. I share a unique and practical teaching on understanding dreams that Carl Jung shared with my mentor, John Weir Perry.

Best wishes,

Mad in America: Having Empathy Doesn’t Mean That You Also Have Compassion!

Hi All,

In my new blog post here, I share that to feel empathy doesn’t ensure that caring and compassion are present too, and that some of the most highly empathic people I’ve ever known have been con artists, manipulative politicians, psychiatric dogma-bound mental health professionals, career criminals, and seductive and exploitative spiritual teachers and gurus.

Best wishes,

Michael
