Shamanism in Contemporary Healthcare
Spirited Medicine is an exciting contribution to the integration of the ancient healing system of shamanism into modern Western society. Most of its authors are dually trained as both healthcare providers and shamanic practitioners, and collectively they offer a broad framework and powerful clinical examples of how to attend to the soul of those who fall ill.
This Tuesday Conversation takes place on April 16, 2013 with Paul Levy Breaking the Curse of Evil with Paul Levy
BIO: 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.
