Paul Levy, author of "Undreaming Wetiko: Breaking the Spell of the Nightmare Mind-Virus," joins us in a profound conversation that delves into the depths of the human psyche and the insidious mind-virus known as "wetiko." A concept deeply rooted in Native American thought, wetiko represents a collective psychosis that is wreaking havoc on our world. Yet, as Levy passionately explains, within this very madness lies the key to our healing.
In this enlightening episode, Levy explores the intricate connections between wetiko and ancestral trauma, revealing how the wounded healer/shaman archetype can be a catalyst for both individual and collective healing. We journey into the heart of multigenerational pain, understanding how it propagates through families and how recognizing the wounded healer within us can guide us through the dark underworld of the unconscious.
Levy introduces us to the inner guide—a daemon/angel that resides within us, acting as an ally in our encounters with the daemonic energy of wetiko. We discuss the cultivation of "symbolic awareness," interpreting life events as symbols, akin to dreams, and how this awareness can transmute the poison of wetiko into medicine for the soul.
Drawing inspiration from the works of C.G. Jung, Rudolf Steiner, Henry Corbin, Wilhelm Reich, and Nicolas Berdyaev, Levy's insights offer a transformative perspective on the current global crisis. He emphasizes that the ultimate antidote to wetiko is to connect with the light of our true nature and embrace our authentic selves.
Join us in this compelling conversation that unravels the mysteries of wetiko and offers a path towards healing, self-discovery, and a deeper understanding of the human condition. Don't miss out on this opportunity to transform wetiko into its own antidote and embark on a journey towards wholeness and awakening.
