I hear, I hear what you don’t hear [documentary] – Robin Timmers

“I’m Robin Timmers and I hear voices – and I’m mentally healthy”

A short [10 mins] documentary/ artistic interpretation of a common experience. Robin Timmers first hears voices after his mother passes away and he experiments with drugs.

He describes the experience, how he first experienced voices, became afraid, tried healers, hospitals, was locked up for a year.

“what crime did I commit to be locked up for a year”

“the only crime I did was think a little bit differently.”

…In time he became less afraid of the voices and  things he saw, had a lot of fun, some beautiful, spiritual experiences.

.. and he recovered, gave up weed, became healthier, prayed and meditated, developed his own inner voice, learned to choose what he wanted to think, and to think only good thoughts.

..and discovered this worldwide network…INTERVOICE , and how he learned a lot of us hear voices – there are a lot of healthy voice hearers.

Robin decided to write a thesis about this, o finish his bachelor’s , and  started to work as an expert by experience. Talking of hs experience with profesionals, telling people of a different way of caring for people who hear voices – not by locking them up but by listening to them .

“I’m healthy, don’t take any psychiatric medications, meet all my goals, got my life…”

And he makes the music in  the movie too.

Nice one, Robin Timmers.
