Metagenealogía: El árbol genealógico como arte, terapia y búsqueda del Yo esencial

Free sample

Este libro único enseña cómo estudiar y analizar nuestro árbol genealógico, para así poder entender nuestro pasado familiar y sanar nuestro presente.

Un paso más allá de las técnicas terapéuticas de la «psicomagia» y la «psicogenealogía», está la Metagenealogía, que «no es estrictamente una terapia, sino un trabajo de toma de conciencia que supone la comprensión de los elementos del pasado que nos han formado, así como el inicio de un impulso futuro al cual nosotros damos forma».
La lectura del libro y sus ejercicios hacen al lector tomar conciencia del estado de «salud» del árbol genealógico en el que ha nacido, y también le enseña a ser consciente de la tradición familiar que él carga. Una vez comprendida la influencia que ejercen en nosotros las vidas de bisabuelos, abuelos, padres, tíos o hermanos; o los lazos especiales que algunos miembros de nuestro árbol establecieron entre sí; o cómo la imposición de las ideas y tabúes familiares ha obstaculizado la expansión de nuestro Yo esencial, seremos capaces de desarrollar un nivel de Conciencia más elevado y entregarnos con espíritu libre y sin miedo a nuestro futuro.

Su autobiografía, La danza de la realidad, desarrolla y explica estas dos técnicas.

Alejandro Jodorowsky

A darkly funny, surreal novel set in Chile and Peru, Albina and the Dog Men is Alejandro Jodorowsky’s sprawling modern myth in which sexual desire appears as a dangerous and generative force that mutates and transforms, unraveling identities and rending the social fabric of a small town. Written with the cinematic flair he brought to his cult 1970s films El Topo and Holy Mountain, Jodorowsky turns the classic stranger-comes-to-town narrative on its head. When two women, an amnesiac albino giantess and a woman called The Crab, arrive in this South American desert town, their otherworldly allure and unfettered sensuality turn men into wild animals. A modern day Kafka story on hallucinogens, with strong doses of mysticism and horror, Albina and the Dog Men exudes dark magical realism that throws into question the nature of what it is to be human.

“Jodorowsky uses his fertile imagination to present a mixed bag of historical and imaginary characters, such as the Inca King, Atahualpa, and a cast of half-humans and half-beasts that possess magical powers...Strongly recommended.”
—Publishers Weekly

“Alejandro Jodorowsky has published Albina and the Dog Men... [which has] the aesthetic he made a show of in Where the Bird Sings Best: extreme magical realism to the limits of sexuality and spirituality... Jodorowsky proposes a search for the philosophy of sex through a literature that aims more for healing than for aesthetics.”

Alejandro Jodorowsky is a Chilean-French filmmaker, playwright, actor, author, musician, and spiritual guru, best known for his avant-garde films Fando and Lis (1968), El Topo (1970), The Holy Mountain (1973), and Santa Sangre (1989).

A circus clown and a puppeteer in his youth, Jodorowsky left for Paris to study mime with Marcel Marceau. He befriended the surrealists Roland Topor and Fernando Arrabal, and in 1962 created the "Panic Movement" in homage to the mythical god Pan. He became a specialist in the art of the Tarot and prolific author of novels, poetry, works on the Tarot and “psychomagic” healing, and over thirty successful comic books with such highly regarded artists as Moebius and Bess.

Jodo’s interpretations of the stories and koans of Zen master Ejo Takata

• Offers more than 60 Zen teaching tales, initiatory stories, koans, and haikus for self-realization and spiritual awakening

• Each story or koan is accompanied by the author’s lucid and penetrating commentary, blending the same burlesque slapstick and sublime insight that characterize his films

• Explains how one must see beyond the words of the story to grasp the spiritual insights they contain

Before he became the film maker and graphic novel author known throughout the world today, Alejandro Jodorowsky studied with Zen master Ejo Takata in Mexico City. In The Finger and the Moon, Jodorowsky recounts how he became Takata’s student and offers his interpretations of the teaching tales, initiatory stories, koans, and enigmatic haikus he learned at the feet of his great and humble teacher. Blending the same burlesque slapstick and sublime insight that characterize his films such as El Topo and The Holy Mountain, each story is accompanied by the author’s lucid and penetrating commentary, as well as insights from ancient Zen teachers. Yet their most significant gift to the reader is the sudden shock of realization they impart that can lead to spiritual awakening.

Jodorowsky notes that most people are incapable of self-realization because of their fear of the void within, an emptiness they seek to fill with noise and chatter. He shows that Zen teachings can be compared to a finger pointing at the moon, directing you to awaken to your true nature--the Buddha within. The danger lies in mistaking the pointing finger for the moon, mistaking the words for the essential enlightenment, which can only be grasped once words have been surpassed. Unlike most tales, these stories are intended to evoke silent illumination--as true awakening and self-realization cannot occur until the mind has been stilled.

Enter the mind of Jodo and follow his initiatory saga from Zen disciple to revolutionary filmmaker to spiritual teacher

• Explores the sacred trickery of shamans he encountered, including Carlos Castaneda, and how intention and action matter more than notions of “true” and “false”

• Explains the Way of Kindness and how small acts of generosity and goodness can have a profound effect on your spirit, infusing life with a wealth of happiness

• Includes contributions from friends and students of Jodorowsky on their experiences with him, including his son Adan Jodorowsky

Known for his surrealist films, his unique approach to tarot, his symbolic comics, and his shamanic therapeutic method of psychomagic, Alejandro Jodorowsky has accomplished an extraordinary amount in his more than 80 years. In this book, we get an intimate look into the inner workings of the cult figure of Jodo. What is revealed is a man who has evolved since his groundbreaking films of the 1970s, El Topo and The Holy Mountain, a man who has grown from a sacred trickster, a shaman of psychomagic, into a brilliant spiritual maverick of the 21st century. We get to see Jodo’s own reflections on the rich tapestry of his remarkable life, including the initiatory failure of the Dune film project, which combined the talents of a multitude of creative greats, including Moebius, Salvador Dali, Orson Welles, Mick Jagger, and H. R. Giger. We learn about Jodo’s years with Marcel Marceau and with great masters such as Ejo Takata, whose Zen training featured strenuous physical and mental ordeals; the sorceress Pachita, who performed psychic surgery on Jodo; and the mysterious Carlos Castaneda, whose sacred trickery reveals how intentions matter more than notions of “true” and “false.”

Discussing the Way of Kindness that he now follows, Jodo reveals how intentionally practicing small acts of generosity and goodness can have a profound effect on your spirit, infusing life with a wealth of happiness.

From sacred trickery to the path of kindness, Jodo’s radical wisdom discerns the timeless within the immediate and gauges the everyday by the measure of eternity.
