Exclusive 1st UK mainland pre- release CRAZYWISE film screening and workshop; An introduction to an empowering approach to mental distress as a transformative process.
What if a psychological crisis was seen as having the potential to be a positive transformative experience, instead of a “broken brain”?
Human-rights photographer Phil Borges witnessed how indigenous cultures around the world often identify “psychotic” symptoms as an indicator of shamanic potential.
Back in the US, Phil follows two young Americans diagnosed with “mental illness.” Adam, 27, suffers devastating side effects from medications before embracing meditation.
Ekhaya, 32, survives several suicide attempts before completing spiritual training to become a traditional South African healer.
CRAZYWISE introduces mental health professionals and psychiatric survivors who see a psychological crisis as a potential growth experience, not a disease.
It’s time to rethink how Western culture defines and treats severe mental emotional distress; BOOK HERE! to be amongst the first in the world to see this ground- breaking documentary and discuss action points to carry forwards to help create change.
This is an informal event with refreshments provided.
The bar will also be open to aid discussion 🙂
Venue: Marchesi Room, Cinema City, St Andrews Street, Norwich, Norfolk, UK
