There is a contagious psychospiritual disease of the soul, a parasite of the mind, that is currently being acted out en masse on the world stage via a collective psychosis of titanic proportions. This mind-virus—which Native Americans have called "wetiko"—covertly operates through the unconscious blind spots in the human psyche, rendering people oblivious to their own madness and compelling them to act against their own best interests.
Drawing on insights from Jungian psychology, shamanism, alchemy, spiritual wisdom traditions, and personal experience, author Paul Levy shows us that hidden within the venom of wetiko is its own antidote, which once recognized can help us wake up and bring sanity back to our society.
Covers everything I have been thinking about for much of my my life, regarding the function of our minds, thoughts and emotions. Mr. Levy is able to articulate and make clear, concepts that have very mercurial and difficult to discuss about each and everyone of us.
I use the knowledge gained from this book in everyday life, in my practice and more importantly to learn about myself and my close friends. If all people understood these concepts, many if which were also espoused by Carl Jung, the world would be a happier and gentler place.
