I agree except for one thing. They did not mention God.

What do you think?
  • I’m not sure that New Ageism is good for folks who are dealing with mental illness. This probably reinforces a more western oriented understanding of mental illness but I have been extensively occupied with New Age subjects in the past and found that it lended itself to Magical Thinking and made my mental health issues worse rather than better. Of course if a person wanted to depart from traditional treatment methods and methods of understanding mental illness and can use New Age concepts as a tool for self understanding that they find liberating if they are also healthy with this understanding I don’t see anything wrong with it. Everyone needs ways to explain things and coping methods to manage their reality. I guess I would have been interested to hear him get more into specifics about various aspects of his illness and how it relates to Reiki, spirituality, etc... I found it telling that both interviewer and interviewee shared a similar understanding so maybe for folks with schizophrenia this is a thing.
