Mel is the director of Evolving Minds, a documentary film about spiritual experiences and what gets labeled “psychosis” by the mental health system. She also discusses the art therapy project in Sri Lanka she helped found to assist traumatized tsunami-affected children.

  1. I liked this interview very much. I live in London and was sectioned by the Mental Health Services after having a Kundalini Awakening. My life has been damaged by being forced to take anti-psychotics (in recovery from). It is inspiring to hear of others who have been through something similar but have regained their health and purpose.
    Thank you Will for all your brilliant work and invaluable archives.
