Psychosis & Ecology: An Exploration
Time & Location
About The Event
Psychosis is an experience of mind existing in all cultures throughout time. Animals experience it too, and certain plants intentionally produce it. So what is this experience, whether produced voluntarily or involuntarily, and other states of mind called “mental illness” doing on the planet? The traditional story is that the brain is broken, but that story misses the mark. Psychosis is often purposeful with an ecological function. Join us for an exploration into this exciting frontier where nature and mind intersect.
