Paul Levy: Wetiko, the Collective Psychosis of Right Now

Seeing Wetiko: On capitalism, mind viruses, and antidotes for a world in  transition - Ecologise
  • How to Heal Our Collective Psychosis with Paul Levy

Native Americans describe the root of all individual and collective crises as wetiko, and believe this mind virus is at the heart of everything we face—from climate change (and our lack of response and confusion around the issue), to social injustice, financial corruption, and more. Called by many different names throughout history, the spirit of wetiko—a form of psychic blindness—renders every other issue secondary, for wetiko is the over-arching umbrella that contains, subsumes, informs, and underlies every form of self-and-other destruction that our species is acting out in our world on every scale. Wetiko only has power over us, however, to the extent it is not seen. Paul Levy will illumine how wetiko operates openly in the world and covertly within our own minds, and how we can begin to heal from this pernicious plague that afflicts humanity.

A pioneer in the field of spiritual emergence, Paul Levy is a wounded healer in private practice, helping others who are also awakening to the dreamlike nature of reality. He is the author of Dispelling Wetiko: Breaking the Curse of Evil (2013), The Quantum Revelation: A Radical Synthesis of Science and Spirituality (2018), and more. A Tibetan Buddhist practitioner for over 30 years, he has intimately studied with some of the greatest spiritual masters of Tibet and Burma. Paul was also the coordinator of the Portland chapter of the Padmasambhava Buddhist Center for over twenty years. For more information, visit

About michael burgwin

A child of the peace and antiWar movements, a Truther with self-diagnosed Opposition Defiance Disorder, formerly politically liberal tho now politically marooned, and Post-Doomer, on any issue, I trend to the conspiracy side, sort through the absurd, fantastical and insane, until I find firm ground usually located just the other side of the censorship firewall of propaganda and orthodoxy, dogma, and other either / or thinking.
