In 1981 Paul Levy had a life-changing spiritual awakening that almost killed him. In the early stages of his awakening he got thrown in mental hospitals a number of times and (mis)diagnosed with manic-depressive disorder. Little did the psychiatrists realize that Paul had gotten drafted into a higher-dimensional shamanic initiation process which mimicked psychosis but was an experience of a far different order. A healer, Paul is in private practice helping others who are also spiritually awakening. He is writing a book about his abuse at the hands of the psychiatric community called Psychiatry Almost Drove Me Crazy. Due to his ordeal, Paul has unique insight into the crazy and “crazy-making” aspect of both psychiatry and our world. In a dream come true, Paul now has psychiatrists study and consult with him and send him clients. He is in the book Saints and Madmen: Psychiatry Opens its Doors to Religion.
Deeply steeped in and inspired by the work of C. G. Jung, Paul is an innovator in the field of dreaming (both night dreams as well as waking dreams). The ex-bookstore manager of the C. G. Jung Foundation of New York, Paul has been studying Jung’s work for 25 years. He is a long-time Tibetan Buddhist practitioner.
Paul is the author of The Madness of George W. Bush: A Reflection of Our Collective Psychosis (which can be ordered on his website). In this book he explores whether Bush has been collectively “dreamed up” to play out, in full-bodied form, the madness that exists deep within the collective unconscious of humanity. In the book, Paul illumines the deeper nature of our world crisis in a radically new way that synthesizes psychology, spirituality and recent discoveries in physics so as to reveal the dreamlike nature of our situation. Drawing heavily on the insights of the great doctor of the soul, C. G. Jung, Paul proposes that the collective madness that our species has fallen into is simultaneously revealing to us our potential for an evolutionary quantum leap in human consciousness.
Each week Paul facilitates a number of “Awakening in the Dream Groups,” which are circles of people who are dis-covering how to help each other awaken to the dreamlike nature of reality. A visionary artist, Paul is creating an “Art-Happening Called Global Awakening.” Please visit his website at www.awakeninthedream.com. Paul’s email is email@example.com.
