    Removing The MAGIC From The Magic MUSHROOM

    Removing The MAGIC From The Magic MUSHROOM

    We have embarked on a psychedelic renaissance, including use for both therapeutic and consciousness expansion purposes. In both cases the drug allows people to recast their consciousness — of themselves, of their worlds, of eternity. 

    This shifting of the cosmic egg is captured by the title of the best seller (with accompanying Netflix docuseries) by Michael Pollan, How To Change Your Mind. Why would you want to change your mind? To rethink your life to live more productively, intimately, happily. 

    But that sounds like a lot of work! And so, with the neuroscientific, know-nothing bent that has caused America’s (and the world’s) mental health to plummet, neuroscientists now say all the needed changes take place solely due to the rearrangement of neurons in your brain that the drug causes. No mindfulness need be added!

    988 Mental Health Hotline WON'T SOLVE our Mental Health CRISIS!

    988 Mental Health Hotline WON'T SOLVE our Mental Health CRISIS!

    The new mental health hotline is buckshot. Who actually thinks that calling a stranger for a few minutes addresses problems of depression and anxiety? Indeed, the idea that this makes sense is a symbol of America’s despair and cluelessness. 

    The hotline’s appearance in the aftermath of WHO’s June 17 World Mental Health Report, which pleaded for expanding nonexistent and disappearing community mental health resources, explains the plaintive tone of that document, which was created to refute quick medical solutions presented mainly by the US as the answer to declining mental health worldwide.

    How the addiction concept drives us crazy | Part II: Harm reduction as Reductionism

    How the addiction concept drives us crazy | Part II: Harm reduction as Reductionism

    Harm reduction once sensibly meant dealing with the whole person to reduce their likelihood of harming themselves. Common sense examples abounded — like helping people find work, residences, and communities. 

    Now it has been narrowed to finding drugs that can cure addiction — an impossibility that implodes harm reduction on itself, losing both the meaning of the word and the power of the tool.

    How the addiction concept drives us crazy | PART I: SMOKING

    How the addiction concept drives us crazy | PART I: SMOKING

    When we learned smoking was addictive we threw out all common sense: that people ultimately choose their fates, that they are led that way by their privileges and values, and that to believe that things are died in the wool only makes it harder for us to change those things. 

    Smoking became a bad habit to eschew, most people with advantages did that more or less, and the expense of smoking became the bad “luxury” of the poor and the deprived. All this true even as it is true to say smoking is addictive.

    Top FIVE Mental Health BEST PRACTICES | Life Process Program

    Top FIVE Mental Health BEST PRACTICES | Life Process Program

    Biological psychiatry has IMPLODED, and everyone knows it, including the World Health Organization (WHO) and the long-time (2002-2015) director of the National Institute of Mental Health, Thomas Insel, biological psychiatry’s biggest booster. 

    Yet, instead of the relief from mental illness and addiction Insel and the entire field have promised from the 1970s on, we are inundated with mental disorders and drug deaths.

    NOW WHAT?

    The WHO, Insel, and the ENTIRE FIELD are at a loss. With no there there, what is to be done? 

    Rushing to fill this breech, WHO is proposing a new Best Practices in Mental Health Guide on June 17, 2022. But given its progenitors’ failures for more than a half century, we may be dubious. Instead of waiting for their opus, LPP presents its own best practices, one predicated on common sense knowledge of how humans succeed, rather than a half century of continuous failure.

    The Yin and Yang of Asking Questions (and how to ask them)

    The Yin and Yang of Asking Questions (and how to ask them)

    How do you learn about people, about life? Questions. Yet again, how do you explore— and poke holes in— preposterous positions that people take? Questions. 

    Finally, how do you help people come to grips with troubling life issues? You’ve got it— questions.  What a versatile tool!
