Join us for a Spiritual Emergence double feature!  We will start with Emerging Proud, then we may be joined by Crazywise filmmaker Phil Borges by Skype from Prague before viewing his film, followed by discussion.

Crazywise: Crazy... or wise? The traditional wisdom of indigenous cultures often contradicts modern views about a mental health crisis.  Is it a 'calling' to grow or just a 'broken brain'? The documentary CRAZYWISE explores what can be learned from people around the world who have turned their psychological crisis into a positive transformative experience.  Trailer and more info at

Emerging Proud: #EmergingProud is a grassroots film made from a compilation of interview clips conducted by Katie Mottram, and clips sent in by people wanting to share their stories for the campaign. The #EmergingProud campaign aims to reframe so called 'madness' as the catalyst for a positive transformation, if properly supported and validated. This film was made possible thanks to those who #EmergedProud to share their personal stories, and the donations of the music and artwork featured in the film. The aim is to provide HOPE to those going through psychological distress and difficult process, to show that there can be a benefit to be gained through the pain... Trailer here. More info at
