This is part one of a conversation Daniel Pinchbeck had with the legenday filmmaker, author, and Tarot reader Alejandro Jodorowsky. Jodorowsky is known for his occult masterpieces Holy Mountain and El Topo. This video, directed and edited by Bradley Smith, was filmed on an evening celebrating the release of Jodorowsky's latest book, Psychomagic: read an excerpt from the book here
"Psychomagic presents the shamanic and genealogical principles Jodorowsky discovered to create a healing therapy that could use the powers of dreams, art, and theater to empower individuals to heal wounds that in some cases had traveled through generations. The concrete and often surreal poetic actions Jodorowsky employs are part of an elaborate strategy intended to break apart the dysfunctional persona with whom the patient identifies in order to connect with a deeper self. That is when true transformation can manifest."
* 12/4/10 - I met Alejandro in the Underworld last night, preceded by a White Horse. He said this book was for you. He said you were about to make the biggest mistake of your life. He said you will carry this burden on the back of your black horse, alone, for the rest of your life. Maybe you reconsidered...maybe the Earth will hold her power? He said the book would provide you with all the answers you need.
