In 1981, due to an intense personal trauma, Paul Levy 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. Fortunately, he was able to extricate himself from the medical and psychiatric establishment so that he could continue his process of self-discovery. In the late 1980s he became the manager of the C. G. Jung Foundation Book Service in New York, as well as the advertising manager for the Jungian journal Quadrant. He later moved to Portland, Oregon, where he began sharing his ideas about the dreamlike nature of reality by giving talks and facilitating interest groups. Paul is the author of Dispelling Wetiko: Breaking the Curse of Evil, Awakened by Darkness: When Evil Becomes Your Father, and The Madness of George W. Bush: A Reflection of Our Collective Psychosis. A Tibetan Buddhist practitioner for more than thirty years, Paul has intimately studied with some of the greatest spiritual masters of Tibet and Burma. Paul is the founder of the Awakening in the Dream community in Portland, Oregon. He was also the coordinator of the Portland chapter of the Padmasambhava Buddhist Center for over twenty years.
