Dr. Manuel Matas is a clinical psychiatrist with forty years of experience working in mental health. He obtained his Medical Degree from the University of Manitoba and his Diploma in Psychiatry from McGill University. He has worked in a variety of settings, including the Scarborough Board of Education, the University of Toronto and the University of Manitoba teaching hospitals, and more recently, in private practice. He has served on the Board and the Scientific Council of the Canadian Psychiatric Association, as well as the Boards of Physicians for Social Responsibility, Psychiatrists Against Psychiatric Abuse, the Manitoba Satir Institute, and the Learning Institute for Growth, Healing, and Transformation. His accomplishments include many published articles in peer-reviewed journals and presentations at national psychiatric conferences. As he discusses in The Borders of Normal, he has had a number of experiences that could be deemed "anomalous" or "paranormal" in popular vernacular; these include near-death and out-of-body experiences, as well as encounters with message-bearing apparitions. It is his hope that by sharing his knowledge of and experiences in both psychiatry and the world of the unknown, he will help to de-stigmatize paranormal and psychic phenomena, thereby allowing readers to recast their spiritual encounters as cogent and deeply meaningful. Manny Matas, MD, has been a clinical psychiatrist for forty years. For most of his professional career, he worked in university teaching hospitals. Dr. Matas is the author of The Borders of Normal: A Clinical Psychiatrist De-Stigmatizes Paranormal Phenomena. His book deals with the field of study known as meta-psychiatry (literally: “beyond psychiatry”). Meta-psychiatry represents the confluence of psychiatry with spirituality and metaphysics, which is the philosophy of being and knowing. .
