Awakening in Mental Health
In the new consciousness, the concept of health has been redefined to include the dynamic of mind, body, and spirit. In the same way, “mental health” includes our emotional, psychological, and social well-being. It is about how we handle stress, relate to others, and how we think, feel, and act. In our modern societies, mental health has become a serious concern with the increasing suffering we see on personal, psychological, and social levels. In this time of global crisis, an “awakening” is necessary to help humanity move forward in a more conscious way. Frida Schneider, a medical doctor in the field of psychiatry, and Mary Sise, a clinical social worker, share with us how their spiritual angle in their respective fields opens the gate to self-transformation and healing.
Zen Quote – “Our discomfort, our suffering, come from defending and protecting our delusional separate selves. This is the healing process—awakening to the original wholeness of life.” Zen master Soeng Hyang
