mental illness, philosophy, depth psychology, life, the universe and everything
Hi, my name is Shauna. I grew up in Sydney and now live in Canberra with my husband, Jeff, and our cats, Sammy and River. I have a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree and a Master of Analytical Psychology degree from Western Sydney University and a Bachelor of Arts (Honours) from the Australian National University where I am now beginning a PhD in philosophy. In the 1990s I had three psychotic episodes and was diagnosed with schizoaffective disorder. You will find a play and film based on the first and third of these episodes, along with some of my performances and a documentary on schizophrenia, at my website http://www.shaunawinram.com
This blog is a mixed bag of small ponderings which I hope you enjoy. Please feel free to contact me with any questions or feedback.
