Buddhist and psychiatrist Dr Podvell offers a uniquely humane vision of the world of madness, informed by a humanistic and compassionate sensibility. Podvell founded the Contemplative Psychotherapy Department at Naropa University in Boulder, Colorado, and was the medical director of the Windhorse Project, a highly lauded treatment community known for its compassionate care.
"Far and away the best written, most cogent, compelling history of our attempts to come to terms with the fascinating, terrifying monster of madness." Mark Vonnegut.
"The treatment described here - how to work with "islands of clarity" and the innate intelligence that guides the healing process - is a teaching for anyone interested in the transformation of mind, heart, and self. You'll rarely read a book that is so beautifully, lovingly written." Bernie Glassman.
"A radical reconsideration of the psychotic mind and its never-lost potential for self recovery - one which provides us with desperately needed, humane alternatives for understanding and helping the psychotic patient." Oliver Sachs.
