Psyche Summary

Psyche by Aidan Shingler

PSYCHE - a mind-blowing account of the visionary potential of unusual states of consciousness. With striking imagery and compelling narrative the author explores the spiritual and creative aspects of schizophrenia, the way people so labelled are treated by the psychiatric system, and how the senses of those experiencing psychosis are opened to paranormal stimuli. The book validates 'Psyche-sensitivity' as evidence of humankind evolving before us, here and now, and emphasises its positive and transforming potential.

Psyche Reviews

'This work and the manner of its presentation afford an alternative world view. The reader/viewer is taken on a remarkable guided tour of the artist's/authors world and philosophy. The combination of text and images is beautifully structured and paced. Through joy, laughter and sadness it validates the human spirit and encourages us all to strive to become 'Reality Testers.' Prof. Philip Barker 'By accentuating the positive aspects of schizophrenia, Aidan Shingler restores dignity and wonder to worlds we disregard at our peril. Whilst this book will be a delight for anyone, it should be on the introductory book list of every person embarking on a career in the mental health field.' Dr. Langley Brown 'A shaft of light into the darkness' - Arts Journal 'Inexplicably beautiful '- The Guardian 'Sharp, witty and in places very funny' - Northern Review 'Beyond categorisation' - Artesian Magazine 'Sheer brilliance' - Mail-Out
