At the top of the show, Paul Levy, author of Dispelling Wetiko: Breaking the Curse of Evil is with us revealing the contagious psychospiritual disease of the soul, a parasite of the mind, that is currently being acted out en masse on the world state via 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. Sound familiar? Drawing on insights from Jungian psychology, shamanism, alchemy, spiritual wisdom traditions and personal experience, Paul shows us that hidden within the venom of wetiko is its own antidote, which once recognized can help us wake up and bring back sanity to our society. We'll certainly ask him if this might explain how people vote against their economic interests!
James Olson, spirit-focused philosopher, is my guest in the second half of the show. Author of The Whole-Brain Path to Peace: The Role of Left and Right-Brain Dominance in the Polarization and Reunification of America. James sees his work on the planet as bringing the masculine and feminine energies into greater balance through his advocacy for whole-brain thinking as a path to peace.
