EBTV presents host Evita Ochel with featured guest Paul Levy in a dialogue about the dream-like nature of our reality and how to wake up and navigate it. Pau is a teacher, author, and artist with a background in economics, art, Tibetan Buddhism, Shamanism, and Jungian psychology.

Once we realize that we live in a virtual or dream-like reality and this becomes experiential for us, nothing is ever the same as we tap into our inherent creative and infinite potential. The veils lift, the eyes, ears, mind, and heart open, the drama dissipates, the suffering subsides and we experience the liberation of our being.
