Walking with the Taniwha

Walking with the Taniwha (Paperback, revised and updated)

By Bennett, Paul Mathew

In the Maori world and depending on where you come from, the word 'taniwha' can have a different meaning, i.e. a deep water creature as a force for good or for evil. From a mental health perspective, the more narrator Paul Bennett fought a bad buzz, the more his anxiety could tak...e him into psychosis, where he was fighting with demons and the devil. From a physical health perspective, the more he stressed when he had trouble breathing, the more his anxiety grew, leading to hyperventilation and often to a full-blown asthma attack. Through his journey of recovery, Paul has learnt to walk with his anxiety or un-wellness, hence the title Walking with the Taniwha.
