recharging my batteries
I'm at the Creative Revolution in Healing: Turning Our Minds Around retreat this week
. Set in the Litchfield County foothills, some ninety or so souls hope to accomplish some currently intangible goals; essentially working to clarify what real alternatives exists to conventional mental health system treatments.
We've already talked about Loren Mohser's Soteria
as well as other options. A fresh breeze away from forced meds and indifferent clinicians who seem more pre-occupied with "boundary issues" than actually providing care and support for folks in emotional or psychic need.
I'm pleasantly surprised to see so many people I know at this event. I feel at home and a bit freer about expressing my thoughts than I would be in other venues.
