Schizophrenia & Shamanism     or     click here

Without Mask - Tracey May's site which shares a unique and insightful personal experience as a sufferer of schizophrenia that will give hope to those in despair.

The Esalen Centre - founded in 1962 by Richard Price who had a strong personal commitment to finding ways to deal with psychosis that were more humane than the prevalent practices of institutionalization, medication, and electroshock. Many excellent articles and perspectives on transformative practices.
