Bridging traditional wisdom and mental health in Norwich, UK

I first met Phil Borges, Producer of CRAZYWISE, in Brazil in 2014 whilst trying to make sense of my own spiritual journey, long before I had #EmergedProud. This was my first major ‘coming out of the spiritual closet’ on camera, but being in an environment where ‘anomalous experiences’ were openly accepted made it so much less scary…

Not everyone has the privilige of travelling to make sense of their journey, and so I am really excited to be welcoming Phil back, not only to the UK, but to my hometown of Norwich, Norfolk, where we’ll be screening his documentary CRAZYWISE on Sat the 17th March at the Puppet Theatre…


Providing a space where these issues can be openly discussed is so vital…

This was a dream for us both 4 years ago; that Mental Health Clinicians, Peers, Carers and Alternative Therapists (Energy Workers / Shamanic Practitioners) could be together in one room to discuss how we can better approach mental distress in an integrative way in the West.

If you’re interested in finding out more about how having a Shamanistic approach to mental distress can provide hope, come and listen to Phil talk about how his 7 year journey making CRAZYWISE led him from spiritual cynic to believing in the powerful impact of having an open -minded approach to psychiatry… 


We look forward to seeing you in Norwich! ❤

    Dear Kate,
    My experiences echos yours. My mother battled mental distress for many years, pathologised by MH system, given toxic medication & ECT. She eventually died by overdose. My father died by suicide 5 years before she did. I can’t help but think that if they had both been othered more holistic support, things might have been different.

    I’m now caring for my son whose healing from traumatic experience of being detained under MHA. We’re all still trying to process what’s happened & something about generational trauma keeps coming up. Thank you for sending me previous info about gaining support. Will the CRAZYWISE film be shown in London?
