Back to Sanity Blog

Welcome to the “Back to Sanity” blog. I see myself as a spiritual psychologist, who has been researching the “farther reaches of human nature” for many years, both independently and as a lecturer at Leeds Metropolitan University in the UK. My interests include why spiritual experiences occur and how to generate them, what it means to live in a state of enlightenment, the connection between turmoil and spiritual awakening, the evolution of consciousness and time perception. At the moment the main focus of my writings is the idea that most human beings suffer from a psychological disorder — which I call “humania”. I believe that the human race needs to undergo a shift into a new state of being in order to continue to flourish as a species, and I see my work as helping to support this shift. My aim is to uncover the madness and discord of the human mind so that we can transcend this and move into a state of harmony and sanity.
