Alejandro Jodorowsky is a filmmaker who made the legendary El Topo and The Holy Mountain. He is also a visionary writer and innovative psychotherapist living in Paris.
"Jodorowsky is a psychotherapist for love rather than money, and he accepts no fees for his services. His unconventional and visionary way of being is in itself the truest recommendation of the path to freedom and creative evolution he foresees for us all." * Robert Simmons, MetaGuide Magazines, October 2010 * "Writers Gilles Farcet and Javie Esteban draw the secrets of [Jodorowsky's] genius out in Parts I and II of the book. In Part III Jodorowsky offers us 'An Accelerated Course in Creativity.' Simultaneously cutting-edge and down-to-earth, this one's in a category all its own." * Anna Jedrziewski, New Age Retailer, June 2010 * "The best movie director ever!" * Marilyn Manson * "Alejandro Jodorowsky seamlessly and effortlessly weaves together the worlds of art, the confined social structure, and things we can only touch with an open heart and mind." * Erykah Badu, artist/alchemist * "Currently there are books that have become essential to winnow out established ideas and open new horizons. The texts brought together here have that special ability to contemplate old problems from perspectives that were not thought to exist." * El Mundo * "Jodorowsky is a brilliant, wise, gentle, and cunning wizard with tremendous depth of imagination and crystalline insight into the human condition. His work is a source of inspiration for me and for many of the most important and innovative artists of our time. Psychomagic is necessary reading for all who long to shock the world into awakening and remembrance of what has always been and what is still to come." * Daniel Pinchbeck, author of 2012: The Return of Quetzalcoatl *
