Mindfulness and Voices, How Voices are like Potatoes, and a Voice with its own Facebook Page
Posted Nov 25 2012 3:27pm
I just listened to a couple of interesting youtube videos by Rufus May on alternative approaches to voice hearing. It gets to a bit of a slow start, but then really gets amazing, especially the story of how he helped one voice hearer get from feeling persecuted by a voice intent on killing her to having a very friendly and cooperative relationship with the voice, to the extent that she now allows the voice to have its own facebook page, and the voice is a valuable ally to her.
It also covers the essentials of how mindfulness can be used to “cook” the raw energy of an emotion like anger or of a voice, so that the emotion or voice, once cooked, becomes like a cooked potato that now can offer some nutrition or assistance.
