Episode 24 - Paul Levy

Paul is a pioneer in the field of spiritual emergence, as well as an innovator in the field of dreaming (both night dreams as well as waking dreams). A Tibetan Buddhist practitioner for over 30 years, he has intimately studied with some of the greatest spiritual masters of Tibet and Burma. He is the author of The Madness of George Bush: A Reflection of Our Collective Psychosis, as well as Dispelling Wetiko: Breaking the Curse of Evil. His newest book, Awakened By Darkness, is an exploration of his relationship with his abusive father and how it initiated the beginning of his shamanic shift in awareness. 

In 1993, after many years of struggling to contain and integrate his non-ordinary experiences, Paul started to openly share his insights about the dreamlike nature of reality. He began giving talks and facilitating groups based on how life is a shared waking dream that we are all co-creating and co-dreaming together. Paul has developed a unique and creative vehicle to introduce people to the dream-like nature of reality that he calls “The Dreaming Up Process,” which is based on the realization that the same dreaming mind that dreams our dreams at night is dreaming our life. He teaches this dreaming up process in “Awakening in the Dream Groups” where people who are awakening to the dream-like nature of reality come together and collaboratively help each other to wake up in the dream together. A wounded healer in private practice, he assists others who are also awakening to the dreamlike nature of reality. 

Here, we discuss the quantum nature of dreams, the psycho-spiritual virus that Paul believes has infected the majority of our species, and how sometimes our wounds reveal opportunities for us to expand beyond what we previously thought possible. I adore this man. You should too.
