“Breaking Down is Waking Up”


On Beyond Meds, MIA Blogger Monica Cassani discusses a video from psychiatrist Russell Razzaque, where Razzaque explores what he learns about the human psyche from practicing meditation.

“This guy is figuring it out,” writes Cassani. “I love that he says that it’s different for everyone and that no one should tell another what their healing process should look like. Yes, that is true. We need a smorgasbord of options. An endless variety of options, really, since many therapeutic healing practices aren’t considered clinical at all. In the end, it’s about learning to live well. Not about finding the right technique. And that truly looks different for every human being as they come to know who they are.”
