In this episode I talk with Mick Collins, occupational therapist, author and incredible human being. We talk all about spirituality and how it plays a role in our practice as occupational therapists. We explore spiritual emergencies (and how the medical system often mistakes these for mental illness), transpersonal occupational therapy, shadow work, therapeutic use of self, soul awakenings, archetypal occupations, dream work, exploring human potential and spirituality in our everyday practice with our everyday clients …..and so much more!!!
Mick Collins worked for 12 years as an occupational therapist specialising in adult acute mental health services and in a psychological therapies team where he integrated the transpersonal into his clinical practice. He has worked as a University lecturer for 10 years and his research focused on themes such as spiritual crisis, transformative potential, spiritual renewal and how humanity can prepare itself to respond to the escalating ecological crisis. For the past four decades Mick has been devoted to a path of gradual soul retrieval, restoration and transformation. He is an author of 3 books: The Restorative Spirit, The Visionary Spirit and The Unselfish Spirit.
