"Why Shamanism Now?" with Christina Pratt
Breaking the Curse of Evil with Paul Levy
Indigenous people have been tracking a psychic virus for many centuries called "wetiko" in Cree and similar names in other languages. A wetiko is a diabolically wicked person or spirit who terrorizes and cannibalizes others by means of evil acts. Wetiko is a true illness of soul or spirit and is at the root of humanity's inhumanity to itself. And there is no possibility of awakening from this collective nightmare without out awakening first to what is keeping us asleep. Join us this week as author, Paul Levy, and host, Christina Pratt explore a new way of understanding evil from Paul's new book, Dispelling Wetiko: Breaking the Curse of Evil. What does Wetiko tell us about the true nature of evil? And more importantly what does understanding evil differently allow us to do differently to transform it? Paul is our next guest for the Society of Shamanic Practitioners sponsored interview series. In this series we explore how contemporary shamans are meeting the challenge of their world where the relations of things are profoundly out of balance. It is the ancient role of the shaman in all cultures to tend the balance of things. How are we meeting this extraordinary need today?
This week's guest:
Paul is a pioneer in the field of spiritual emergence, as well as an innovator in the field of dreaming (both night dreams as well as waking dreams). An intense personal trauma in 1981 initiated a life-changing spiritual awakening in which Paul began to recognize the dreamlike nature of reality. Though hospitalized a number of times he was able to extricate himself from the medical and psychiatric establishment altogether so that he could continue his process of self-discovery.
After the trauma of his shamanic break-down/through, Paul developed a unique and creative vehicle to introduce people to the dream-like nature of reality that he calls "The Dreaming Up Process," which is based on the realization that the same dreaming mind that dreams our dreams at night is dreaming our life. He teaches this dreaming up process in "Awakening in the Dream Groups" and assists individuals in his private practice to awaken to the dreamlike nature of reality.
A Tibetan Buddhist practitioner for over 30 years, he has intimately studied with some of the greatest spiritual masters of Tibet and Burma. He is the author of The Madness of George Bush: A Reflection of Our Collective Psychosis, Wetiko: The Greatest Epidemic Sickness Known to Humanity, and Dispelling Wetiko: Breaking the Curse of Evil.
