From The New School for Social Research: “Crazy…or wise? The traditional wisdom of indigenous cultures often contradicts modern views about a mental health crisis. Is it a ‘calling’ to grow or just a ‘broken brain’? The documentary CRAZYWISE explores what can be learned from people around the world who have turned their psychological crisis into a positive transformative experience.
Joined by the Director of CRAZYWISE, Phil Borges, and renowned mental health professional Gabor Maté, MD, the event will include a screening of CRAZYWISE followed by a panel session. The panel will explore finding meaning through suffering, how indigenous cultures identify ‘psychotic’ symptoms as an indicator of shamanic potential, and the growing severity of the mental health crisis in America dominated by biomedical psychiatry.”
