Psychomagic: The Transformative Power Of Shamanic Psychotherapy


Psychomagic presents the shamanic + genealogical principles Jodorowsky discovered to create a healing therapy that could use the powers of dreams, art + theater to empower individuals to heal wounds that in some cases had traveled through generations. The concrete + often surreal poetic actions Jodorowsky employs are part of an elaborate strategy intended to break apart the dysfunctional persona with whom the patient identifies in order to connect with a deeper self. That is when true transformation can manifest.

While living in Mexico, Alejandro Jodorowsky became familiar with the colorful + effective cures provided by folk healers. He realized that it is easier for the unconscious to understand the language of dreams than that of rationality. Illness can even be seen as a physical dream that reveals unresolved emotional + psychological problems.

For a young man who complained that he lived only in his head + was unable to grab hold of reality + advance toward the financial autonomy he desired, Jodorowsky gave the prescription to paste two gold coins to the soles of his shoes so that all day he would be walking on gold.

Taking his patients directly at their words, Jodorowsky takes the same elements associated with a negative emotional charge + recasts them in an action that will make them positive + enable them to pay the psychological debts hindering their lives. Paperback. 304 pages.
