My Beautiful Psychosis: Making Sense of Madness
My Beautiful Psychosis: Making Sense of Madness is a stunning debut memoir from international award winning documentary filmmaker, Emma Goude. Published by Aeon Books, it is a gritty tale of transformation depicting, from the inside, some of the most powerful experiences a human mind can endure. It turns on its head the idea that psychosis is a debilitating illness, caused by a brain chemical imbalance, which requires medication for life. It is an intense, honest and lucid memoir, an exposing and vulnerable adventure through a psyche that is spilling out undigested psychological material to reveal secrets that have been forgotten.
My Beautiful Psychosis: Making Sense of Madness questions conventional methods of treating psychosis and points towards a radical vision where diagnosis of mental illness makes allowances for spiritual growth and transformation rather than simply treating a perceived brain chemical imbalance.

Tango, Camino, Romeo
I am currently writing my next book Tango, Camino Romeo which is also a memoir.
I set out to walk the 500 mile Camino to Santiago de Compostela on a quest to find love. I do find it, but not in the way I was expecting.
I really want to find it in a romantic relationship so my quest continues to Guatemala with a South African and then Buenos Aires to dance tango. I fall in love with an Argentinian but through the tango, I realise I need to first heal the wounds of the past.
Tango, Camino, Romeo is a travel adventure and love quest all wrapped up in a spiritual odyssey.
