Publisher Description

The family tree is not merely vital statistics about your ancestors. It is an embodied sense of self that we inherit from at least four prior generations, constituting both a life-giving treasure and a deadly trap. Each of us is both an heir of our lineage and a necessary variation that brings the family into new territory. Are you doomed to repeat the patterns of your parents and grandparents? Or can you harness your familial and individual talents to create your own destiny? In METAGENEALOGY, Alejandro Jodorowsky and Marianne Costa show how every individual is the product of two forces: the imitating force, directed by the family group acting from the past and the creative force, driven by the Universal Consciousness from the future. The authors provide exercises, visualisations and meditations to discover your family's psychological heritage and open yourself to the growth and creativity of Universal Consciousness. They reveal how identifying the patterns, emotional programming and successes and failures of the four generations that influence you - your siblings, parents, aunts, uncles, grandparents and great-grandparents - allows you to see beyond the stable identity formed by family lineage. It frees you to overcome your inherited subconscious patterns of behaviour and illness, stop the transmission of these patterns to future generations and reconnect with your true self and unique creative purpose in life. By understanding your family tree and your place in it, you open your ability to heal the ancient struggle between the repetitive forces of the past and the creative forces of the future. Provides exercises to uncover your family's psychological heritage, heal negative patterns of behaviour and illness in your family tree and discover your true self Explains how we are the product of two forces: repetition of familial patterns from the past and creation of new ideas from the universal consciousness of the future * Interwoven with examples from Jodorowsky's own life and his work with the tarot, psychoanalysis and psychomagic
