Abstract

Employing elements of Bernadette Marie Calafell's critique of autoethnographic reflexivity, this essay describes the difficulties of honoring the “Other” by sharing the experience of psychosis through poetry. I question how to create shared meanings within the realities of major mental illness in critical and phenomenological terms, exploring these perceptions by breaking from narrative into the poetic expression of my idiosyncratic worlds. In doing so, I search for the clearings in Martin Heidegger's forest, embracing a vulnerable reflexivity that invites understanding and compassion: those places where we create shared meanings for each “Other” through our shifting contexts.
