This is Paul Levy’s third book on the subject, following Wetiko and Dispelling Wetiko. Wetiko – which is a term from the Native American tradition – describes a virus of the mind, which underlies the collective insanity and evil wreaking havoc across the world. It has its roots in unhealed ancestral trauma, which expresses within the family. Influenced by the work of Jung, he shows how the answers to the problem are actually hidden within the dark side of our human experience. This is deep and compelling work but it’s greeted enthusiastically by a number of authors quoted on the cover, including Jean Houston, Andrew Harvey and Larry Dossey. Through stories, historical anecdotes and deep insight, he offers a practical map to those shadow parts of us, which is where true healing lies.
