    Ebook by Bird Neshama Trungma

    Bellevue Psychiatric Hospital's Ward 8 North and Karen Horney Clinic came to life at a time when the first step in treatment was to don an orange jumpsuit with the word “PSYCHO” stenciled in huge letters on the back. Not your typical sensationalist psych ward horror story where the staff is more demented than the patients, Four Ghosts in a Mad House is an engaging true-life story about the profound effects of well-meaning professionals and life-weary family members in 1960s New York City. Bird Neshama Trungma’s tale will make any mental health professional or parent think twice about being too quick to apply diagnostic labels and dictate limitations for those entrusted to their care.

    About the Author

    Bird Neshama Trungma earned a bachelor's degree in psychology from San Francisco State University and a master's degree in journalism from New York University. Her major interests include Eastern and Western psychology, Buddhism, and comparative religion.

    Besides being a memoirist, Ms. Trungma also writes essays and poetry. She has published two volumes of poetry to date, I Look Into My Mirror and There You Are (Why I Can Never Again Get Too Lonely) and Blue Mahamudra. She regards herself as more of a philosopher and teacher than a writer per se, since all of her writings, including the poetry, contain philosophical teachings combined with practical life lessons.

    Ms. Trungma considers triggering people to notice and question their paradigms to be one of her most important jobs. She is sharply critical of those who confuse labels with explanations. The stories in this book make it quite clear why that is so.

Learn more about what the magnetic field does, how it protects us from the Sun, why the field reverses at irregular intervals, what’s at the Earth’s core, and what would happen if the field failed. Herndon carefully correlates his theory with important discoveries by scientific pioneers William Gilbert, Carl Friedrich Gauss, Emil Wiechert, Henry Cavendish, Hans Christian Oersted, Michael Faraday, and Arnold Eucken.
