Either extremely crazy or extremely innovative or both.
“The consultant buys a bottle of fake blood at a theater supply store and once every lunar month, for four days, imitates having a period by putting some of this blood into the vagina and preventing it from gushing out by using a tampon. After repeating this for four months, the consultant’s period will return to normal.”

This was plain cray!
But still, interesting in its weirdness lol.

A surprisingly easy book to read, in part because of the interview
format. Despite the complexity of some of the topics, Jodorwsky
has a way of making them approachable. I particularly enjoyed
the chapter on lucid dreaming. I enjoy his tweets and Facebook
postings - gems of wisdom for a broader audience.
This is a book for the curious and open-minded. I am strongly
drawn to science and logic, but the mystery of Magick whispered
alluringly in my ear as I read this book.

Un manual para salir de la norma

Abundante en ejemplos de traumas de la historia que afectan la vida cotidiana. Con indicaciones fuera de lo convencional, basadas en rituales, o actos Psico mágicos, como los llama el autor que sirven para cortar el el hechizo del pasado que afecta el buen accionar en el presente.

Imperdible la reflexión por la cual decide escribir el libro, que explaya al principio. Después el manual en sí es más para la gente que cree en eso.

Amo este libro de Jodorowsky casi tanto como sus películas. Encuentro tanto gusto en las cosas que trascienden la realidad!

Un libro donde Alejandro Jodorowsky nos explica su paradigma terapeutico de intervencíon psicologica.
El libro aun que lleva explicito en el titulo "Consejos para sanar tu vida" termina siendo mas un relato sobre las intervenciones que el autor realiza y la genesis de su paradigma.
El paradigma "Psicomagico" lleva implicito la fusion de dos paradigmas psicologicos en el aspecto terico esta totalmente basado en la explicacíon psicodinamica de Freud, ya que da mas carga a las pulsacíones reprimas a

I initially started reading this because a friend told me about how peculiar it was and the index certainly helped shaping that first perception, but after finishing I feel like while the book was indeed very peculiar, it was not worth a reading. I only picked it up out of curiosity, but dreaded finishing it and only did because of my slight OCD.
I don't understand how this manual helps anyone other than the author express these crazy ideas he has about a million topics and his obsession with peo

La metáfora me parece una maravillosa propuesta de sanación. Pero considero que algunos actos deberían ser definidos por la individualidad de cada consultante y no necesariamente seguir el guión elegido por el autor de este manual.
Una oportunidad para manifestar nuestra vision artística en nuestra vida.

Es un libro que difícilmente se lee de principio a fin. Es un libro de consulta, de posibles soluciones a estancamientos puntuales. Los consejos psicomágicos son tan extraños y trasgresores que probablemente funcionan...

More about Alejandro Jodorowsky
“Although often with good intentions, our parents and teachers attribute negative definitions to us, which last for many years and prevent us from developing ourselves with pleasure. In psychomagic, we call these definitions “labels” because they stick to the self. So that the consultant can free herself from them, I advise:
▶ The consultant writes on adhesive labels as many definitions as they gave her, for example: “You have no ear for music,” “You don’t know how to use your hands,” “You’re a freeloader, liar, thief,” “You’re egotistical, weak, dumb, fat, skinny, vain, ungrateful,” and so on. The consultant glues these labels to every part of the body— many of them to the face—and goes out in public that way for as many hours as possible. When the consultant returns home, she should remove the labels, roll them into a ball, take the ball to the city dump, and throw it on top of the garbage pile, having beforehand caressed her body with hands soaked in pleasant perfume.”
“The occultist G. I. Gurdjieff (1877–1949) demanded that a student, who was an inveterate smoker, quit smoking, and until he quit, Gurdjieff forbade any visit from him. The student fought for four years against the habit. When the student managed to overcome his habit, he very proudly presented himself in front of the teacher: “So! I quit smoking!” Gurdjieff responded, “Now, smoke!” 1 likes
