Two things:

The new site is fully up and running.  It looks much better than before, and everything works as it should.  Czech it out!  https://antonioprimavera.com/

Especially czech out the section on Transpersonal Psychology: https://antonioprimavera.com/transpersonal-psychology

and the section on Garden Sessions:  https://antonioprimavera.com/garden-sessions

It has been a hard row to plough, as I am no computer programmer.  And, yes, I built the website myself. 

SEO (Search Engine Recognition) is the most important thing; this is how people find the site (or not) on Google.  But it is the most difficult and confusing part.  Why can't I just make a list of tags/keywords that people are likely to use to find the site and be done with it?  Nope.  It is WAY more difficult than that.

Anyway, the site is climbing higher and higher in the Google rankings.  Now it shows up on the first or second search page, rather than not at all, and instead the searcher is offered an article on psychotherapy in Mexico written in 1992.  Yeah, that's what I was looking for when I typed in "English speaking psychotherapist in Mexico City."

The second thing is this Natural/Holistic type expo that's coming up in August.  It's free, so I'll probably go have a look.  Here's the info:
The link listed in the ad didn't work for me.  So, go here: http://www.expoherbonatura.com.mx/expo/pagina/pagina_inicio

Take Care, All!

Hi Folks in Mexico City!

I have a new website. Here it is:  https://antonioprimavera.com/

I built this whole thing all by myself!  I am pretty happy about it, as I have absolutely no training, and it was fucking difficult!

The website people told me that my site builder and other programs were out-of-date and incompatible.  The computer world.  I think that's a Kraftwerk album title.

I guess my only real gripe is that I can't get the main image on the home page right.  I've spent at least eight hours trying to get it right.  I will just post the intended image here:

It's pretty cool.  It looks like an impressionist painting of me.  I wish you could see all of it on the site.  Oh, well...ni modo, as they say in Mexican.

NAMASTE ~Antonio

The Drug Wars and their Impediments to a Good Life

In the US, the Dug War has been a failure for a very long time.  It is a newer failure here in Mexico. The death toll since the beginning of the Mexican Drug War has far surpassed the deaths in Iraq and Afghanistan combined.

Many people in el DF have begun to grow their own marijuana, so as to not contribute to the bloodshed.  This is commendable.  As well, the government decriminalized possession of small quantities of all drugs in 2008.

In my practice, I sometimes suggest the use of "drugs" such as alcohol, marijuana, LSD, MDMA, and magic mushrooms, because I know that they can be beneficial to my patients.  Still, the laws and the stigma associated with "taking drugs" prevents some patients from receiving help with their situation. Many will jump to taking antidepressants, but will scoff at marijuana.

Thanks God, CBD oil is now legal in Mexico.

This is due, in large part, to the way of the West where some drugs are sanctioned and others demonized.  When considering whether a drug is accepted into the Western cannon, ask, "Who benefits?"  You will quickly come to the realization that Mammon is the god of greed and of the US.

Sadly, it has been this way from the inception of America.  The pharmaceutical companies are not looking out for the well-being of the patient, but at the profit to be made from said patients.  The difference between the pharmaceutical companies and the narcos is merely a legalistic distinction.  

I don't really want to get into politics, but many states in the US have now legalized or decriminalized marijuana for medicinal (and even recreational) uses.  Hopefully, Mexico will continue on this track.
It's really the only way out of the bloodshed inherent in such a profitable business.

In the meantime, I will make sure that my patients receive the treatment that they need and deserve.

Blogger and the NWO

This site has to be the worst I have ever used.  Why do I have to search for an hour to find how to make a new post?  Probably, this is because I do not have fxxbook or an xPhone.  What is this world coming to?

People Far Away

Since starting this blog, and this website: www.antonioprimavera.com, a number of people needing help have contacted me. When I have been able, I have referred them to a therapist in their area. But, I don't always have contacts in other areas. I was speaking with my supervisor about this, and she suggested that I treat these people on the phone or through SKYPE. "Some help is better than none," she said. And, thinking about this, I suppose she is right. 

I would like to know what others think of this. Supposedly, this is the future. This is even a topic at the coming Psychoanalytic Congress. However, I am still unsure about this method of conducting therapy. Please let me know what you think.

Take care,

This Heat

It is HOT out there! El DF is typically so moderate that many of us have been caught off-guard/ taken aback by this prolonged heat wave. Relatively speaking, it isn't all that hot. 85 (29) is certainly better than 105 (40). Still, many people are feeling rather miserable.

Well, I can do nothing about the heat. But, I am here to help if you have anything else on your mind. Send me a message.
