A Spiritual Look at the Question, What’s the Relationship Between Trauma, Psychosis, and Spirituality?

“How can “psychotic” experiences that are both terrifying and debilitating be seen as at all spiritual? Isn’t it true that looking for spirituality within psychosis is just a case of “romanticizing madness?”

That’s the question I take on in this updated post, and what follows is a deep exploration about trauma and loss, madness, fear, and spiritual experience.

I want to thank my friend Naas Siddiqui for prompting me to redo the post a bit so it could appear on a blog she works with, Spiritual Emergence and Other Extraordinary Experiences at CIIS.
