Shamanism and the Wisdom of Mental Illness

21 July @ 7:30 pm

£8 – £12

Jez Hughes is a shamanic healer, teacher and author. Jez has recently released his second brilliant book, The Wisdom of Mental Illness: Shamanism, Mental Health and the Renewal of the World. Jez has been giving talks around the country, and now he’s coming to Bristol!
The talk will explore the initiatory role of the shamanic sickness and the parallels this has with what we label mental illness.

The social and ecological aspects of mental health and how shamanism can help bring us back into balance with the world. He’ll also be speaking about the latest scientific research into altered states and psychedelic medicines and how these can help treat mental distress.
There’ll be a lovely balance of depth, wisdom, insights, connection, spirit, laughter, lightness and possibly some mention of Leeds United.
There’ll also be a q&a and opportunity to get a signed copy of his book.

Afterwards, we’ll have a relaxed loving space to share our poetry/ spoken word/ song/ stories etc in community, if we so wish.

Any questions, feel free to ask.
Hope to see you there!
