Psychomagic - Alejandro Jodorowsky
Rochester, VT: Inner Traditions, 2010. Paperback, 292 pages. New. Subtitled: The Transformative Power of Shamanic Psychotherapy. Jodorowsky created a healing therapy that uses the powers of dreams, art and theatre to empower individuals to heal wounds that in some cases had travelled through generations. The concrete and often surreal poetic actions Jodorowsky employs are part of an elaborate strategy intended to break apart the dysfunctional persona. He aims to show how psychological realisations can cause true transformation when manifested by concrete poetic acts. The book includes many examples of the surreal but successful actions Jodorowsky has prescribed to those seeking his help.
