Shades of Awakening – What is CRAZY anyways? | Chaya Grossberg

Guest post by Dabney Alix.
In the diverse array of terms now used – extreme states, madness, spiritual crisis, kundalini, psychosis, crazy, shamanic initiation – I see my own experience in all of them. To me, they’re all expressions of what I call Shades of Awakening. Each one with it’s own flavor, meaning and transformational path to recovery.
After over a decade of soul searching, a new question emerged. How can I support others who are integrating to find their own truths, their own narratives and their own answers?
What emerged from this inquiry is a 3 day online speaker series called Shades of Awakening: Integrate and Claim the Gifts from Spiritual Emergency where I interview 11 experts, thought leaders and those with lived experience on alternative perspectives to the medical model of mental illness.

If Each Nice Girl Took a Pen | Chaya Grossberg

Writing is resistance. It’s saying no, for however brief an instant, to the notion imparted on me that I’m here solely to respond, that I’m here to be nice, a good girl, cooperative and kind, that I’m here to play out the role I was assigned: to be convenient for others.

Writing is the only hand I have to hold this morning and many mornings, as well as the only hand I want to hold, the only hand that can help me find my way out of the maze of everyone else’s psyches, of collective mythology. And until collective mythology incorporates my reality, I will write it down each day.

It’s how I edge my way into the world rather than be erased and excluded, which would have happened if I went with the tide and never picked up a pen or feather or stick or bow, shell or rock or remnant bone.

Since I was borne, I’ve had this resistance in me as I was conditioned to be a nice girl and no one is a nice girl. I repeat- No one is a nice girl.

Nice girls don’t exist- oh dear.

Yet- our world is built on the assumption of nice girls. We all rely on nice girls, especially “great men” and to give a nice girl a pen, or penal instrument, is to topple the empty boxes these men stand upon, so to pick up a pen as a nice girl, is much more powerful resistance than you might think. ://chayagrossberg.com/if-each-nice-girl-took-a-pen/
