With Spiritual Emergence Pioneer, Teacher & Author
Paul Levy


Experience a profound guided meditation to discover the psychic mind-virus, wetiko, within you and how it may be suppressing the true you — AND how learning to transmute it can ignite your creative powers and set you free.


Do you find yourself slipping into frustration, overwhelm, or despair at the state of our world these days?

Do you wish you could free yourself from anxiety, stress, and fear?

Do you yearn to feel more at ease, hopeful, and confidently proactive in your life... at home within yourself and your surroundings, and living your true purpose?

It’s easy to get discouraged when you see all the rampantly destructive ways that humanity is acting out... in climate change, the threat of nuclear war, social injustice, political malfeasance, financial corruption, and the list goes on...

Although the magnitude of these problems sounds and feels daunting, the “poison” encoded within them is the very medicine we need to catalyze our individual and collective evolution, according to spiritual emergence pioneer, teacher, and author Paul Levy.

World circumstances are inviting us to undergo an inner alchemical transformation. We are collectively making a shamanic descent into the darkness of the unconscious, Paul believes, undergoing an archetypal death and rebirth experience.

Yet, the collective madness that appears to have overtaken our world can potentially help us see that there is something within us preventing our full evolutionary potential... something that can also potentially catalyze us to awaken to the dreamlike nature of reality and remember who we are.

Early Native Americans called this catalyst wetiko, and it’s a concept recognized in all spiritual traditions — a psychospiritual disease of the soul — a mind-virus or mental blindness that works through the blind spots of the unconscious.

It is what feeds our shadow sides, those parts of ourselves we can’t or don’t want to see. It causes us to form a dualistic perspective — an us-versus-them mentality — and suffer the painful consequences of accepting this perceived sense of separateness.

Paul views wetiko as the root of what contains, informs, and underlies our personal and collective destruction on every scale.

In this profoundly eye-opening and surprisingly inspiring workshop with Paul, you’ll discover how, paradoxically, on the flip side of wetiko’s darkness dwells our light, as well as the creative passion and energies we hold — and need — to awaken from its dreamlike nature and see it for the revelation and catalyst for positive change that it is.

In this revolutionary event, you’ll experience a powerful guided meditation to bring you to the edge of what’s stopping you from being fully you — your creative soul-self at full tilt — as you learn how to glimpse behind the veil of your own inner wetiko to notice your resistance, find what’s blocking you, and discover what’s drawing you forward.

You’ll learn how wetiko can cause us to fall under the spell of what in the Apocryphal texts of the Bible is called the counterfeiting spirit, where we are hijacked by societal norms that steal our true nature, unique creative gifts, and our ability to perceive and experience the loving nature of Universal Oneness. And, you’ll come away with powerful remedies for transforming this personal and collective dis-ease.


During this illusion-shattering free online event with Paul, you’ll:

  • Discover wetiko — the psychic mind-virus within each of us and the collective — and the soul-empowering benefits of learning how to alchemize it in order to wake up to the dreamlike nature of reality.
  • Experience a profound guided meditation to glimpse behind the veil of your own inner wetiko, and notice your resistance to living authentically, what’s blocking you, and what’s drawing you forward
  • Learn the remedies for wetiko and how they strengthen your innate nature as a creator, cultivate compassion and healthy connection to others, and illuminate the synchronistic nature of life
  • Learn how to differentiate between our neurotic monkey mind, a symptom of wetiko, and the actual downloads from your higher soul-self
  • Discover the counterfeiting spirit within that impersonates us and that we identify with, and how to recognize and dispel it

Paul’s awakening to the dreamlike nature of reality was catalyzed by an intense, life-changing psychological trauma he experienced in 1981, which launched him on a spiritual path and has profoundly informed his decades of writing, research, and teaching.

His approach to personal and collective evolution and awakening is a radical synthesis of quantum physics, alchemy, shamanism, Buddhism, Kabbalah, mystical Christianity, and the works of Swiss psychoanalyst Carl Jung and novelist Philip K. Dick.

Paul also draws from his intense interest in dreams — both night dreams and the dreamlike nature of reality — and is continually expanding his investigation into a deeper reality.

When you join us for this free online event, you’ll be among the first to hear about an all-new 7-week online program with Paul, where you’ll learn both conceptual and experiential tools for recognizing wetiko so you can better cope with it by dissolving and dispelling it from within your own mind, your relationships, your community, and our world... while unlocking your creative power and more deeply connecting with your true essence.

About Paul Levy

A creative artist, author, and wounded healer, Paul Levy is founder of the Awaken in the Dream Community in Portland, Oregon. Deeply steeped in the work of Swiss psychoanalyst Carl Jung, Paul is a longtime Tibetan buddhist practitioner, having intimately studied for the past 35 years with some of the greatest spiritual masters of Tibet and Burma. For over 20 years, he was coordinator for the Padmasambhava Buddhist Center in Portland.

In 1981, catalyzed by an intense psychological trauma, Paul had a life-changing spiritual awakening in which he began to recognize the dreamlike nature of reality. During the first year of his spiritual emergence, Paul was hospitalized a number of times, and was told he was having a severe psychotic break from reality. He was (mis)diagnosed as having manic-depressive (now called bipolar) disorder. He has since become a pioneer in the field of spiritual emergence. Paul is currently in private practice, helping others who are also awakening to the dreamlike nature of reality.

Paul is author of Wetiko: Healing The Mind-Virus That Plagues Our World... The Quantum Revelation: A Radical Synthesis of Science and Spirituality... Dispelling Wetiko: Breaking the Curse of Evil... and Awakened by Darkness: When Evil Becomes Your Father. He has published numerous articles on healing, dreaming, and awakening.
