Gogo is a beautiful example of how reframing anomalous experiences can transform ones’ life in an immeasurable way.
Diagnosed with Schizophrenia and medicated due to hearing voices and seeing visions, she decided to seek an alternative way of understanding her experiences outside of the Western mental health conceptual framework. Gogo went back to her ancestral roots with the South African Sangoma tribe and trained as a shamanic healer; she now conceives her experiences as a gift and supports others who are going through the spiritual emergence transformation process to harness their own.
Gogo is one of the central characters of the ground-breaking documentary ‘Crazywise’, due for release later this year.
I am excited to be interviewing Gogo about her transformative healing journey and current therapeutic ‘Sangoma Healing’ work in Dec.
