Stockbridge psychologist honored for paper, career in psychoanalysis
Posted Tuesday, April 2, 2019 5:54 pmBy Haven Orecchio-Egresitz, The Berkshire EagleNEW YORK — A longtime Stockbridge psychologist was honored Tuesday at the William Alanson White Psychoanalytic Institute, where he presented a paper that linked the roots of psychoanalysis to the work of shamans.
Paul Lippmann, an 85-year-old Ph.D. who has been in the private practice of psychoanalytic psychotherapy in Stockbridge since 1971, presented an abridged version of his paper, “The Shamanic Roots of Psychoanalysis: On the Wings of Dreams,” at the institute. He was honored for the paper and his career in psychoanalysis.
On April 13, Lippmann will present the full version of his paper at the Red Lion Inn, during an event sponsored by the Western Massachusetts/Albany Association for Psychoanalytic Psychology, a professional organization that he founded and of which he previously served as president.
“The modern practice of psychoanalysis is closely related to ancient shamans in several ways,” Lippmann said, describing his paper. “Also, using our dreams, similarly to the way shamans did, can really enrich our work.”
While it had been believed that psychoanalysis was born out of Sigmund Freud’s mind at the end of the 19th century, its practice is much older, Lippmann said.
“We are only beginning to realize that the dreams of the therapist contain significant ideas about treatment,” he wrote in a program for the Red Lion Inn talk. “A portion of the presentation will concern the use of the analyst’s dreams — the shaman’s contribution to our work.”
Lippmann has been a fellow, faculty member, and training and supervising analyst at the William Alanson White Psychoanalytic Institute, and was president of the William Alanson White Psychoanalytic Society. He’s also a member of several professional organizations, the author of “Nocturnes (On Listening to Dreams),” and longtime adjunct faculty member at the Austen Riggs Center in Stockbridge. He has lived in Stockbridge since 1960.
The presentation at the Red Lion Inn will begin at 9 a.m., and preregistration is available WMAAPP.org.

In all my years of shamanic practice, I have seen countless cases of human relations. There is one that I particularly find very disturbing, I call them the “Toxic Nurturers”. These are people that are usually well off, healthy, good looking and caring. Basically, they have all the deceiving attributes to lure you right into their toxic little inescapable trap.
Here’s how the process can begin. You somehow meet this loving person that suddenly takes a legitimate liking to you. The relationship or friendship moves very fast. Within a matter of days/weeks you find yourself in some commitment, job or living with this person. All along things seem fine and the “toxic nurturer” is constantly loving and giving. The problem is that you are either sinking in deeper emotionally or starting to resent this person. These feelings are originating from a subconscious understanding that in a very subtle manner this person sees you as broken. They have little expectations of your achievements and even anticipate your failures, so you can reinforce their world view. They need you to stay sunk in their set up so they can feel a sense of purpose. From the outside it seems like this person is helping you. From the inside it feels like you are trapped with no hope. They achieve this by constantly feeding you ideas, alternatives and opportunities that you don’t fit in with, basically designed for you to fail in. As an observer, it’s the intense resentment towards the benefactor that starts making me consider this could be going on.
I have had exposure to both sides of this equation. The person under the “toxic nurturer”, just needs to get out of there as soon as possible. It’s energetic, it can’t be seen but the victim is being detoured/delayed of their life destiny. Ironically, I have seen “victims” do very well and very fast after venturing on their own. This will predominantly happen for two energetic reasons:
Through their Free-Will, the “Victim” amasses the courage to be sovereign. This will always yield help from their subconscious powers.
The “Victim” is actually teaching the “Toxic Nurturer” that their world view is limiting. Helping The Universe bestow blessings and teachings to fellow humans also ignites your subconscious powers.
As for the “Toxic Nurturers”, in over ten years of practice, I have yet to have one stick around long enough to look into their own issues. They usually end up in my practice under the guise of trying to “repair” the relationship with the fleeing victim, or some other person (a current or future victim). It is never about them. These people have a very somber look of the world. They strongly believe in charity service and use it as a way to temporarily get a fix on their inner brokenness.

The Sun is constantly sending us light, warmth and life force energy. We stand on Mother Earth, which is always sprouting life and creation as a physical manifestation. Humans share attributes from both the Sun and Earth. We can absorb energy from the Sun and create here on Earth in physical form. Furthermore, we can create with Free Will. We can choose how and in what direction to yield that creative impulse. Just by being alive you are always creating. If you don’t choose to direct your creative force in a positive direction dissonance will eventually occur.
Humans are a perfect harmonious creation. If we find ourselves in an environment that exposes us to dissonant energy, we will naturally react negatively to it. Pessimism is a reaction to the lack of harmony within our environment. That emotional state can be immediately redirected by exercising our own divine free will and choosing an outcome we desire to create.
In other words, while here on Earth, it’s like sitting in a moving car. If you don’t pay attention to where that car is headed, you may end up in a place you dislike. The good news is that the car is always moving, and that at any time its direction can be realigned to where you choose. At first it takes a little discipline not to succumb to the inertia of emotions produced by what we dislike. By always self checking your emotions, you’ll know if you are at ease or if you need to choose a different course of action. I can sum it all up like this for you: Feel-Observe-Choose-Repeat.

This is a 10 min improvised recording of a very positive habit I’ve had for years to increase manifestation flow. It is based on the book: “It Works”, with some extra shamanic ingredients added for extra energy.
Quick tips and reminders:
Don’t show it to anybody
Use plain bond paper
Fold it so that you have a cross pattern (you can fold it more also)
Carry the list with you
Try to read it three times a day
As you read, it’s best if you use a conversation tone and add more details as if telling someone about it.
Update it constantly, it’s good to change, edit, or add to it
When you need to change the paper, re-use the safety pins
One of the four cardinal virtues in mysticism is “courage”. From a spiritual point of view, the most courageous thing a human can do while in his limited time here on Mother Earth is to confront “Truth”. Once you are solidly aligned with the truth of what you are and what you are doing here, trivial things in this material world will become either laughable or manageable. Know this, if your vibration is in harmony, literally nothing unwanted can touch you. If you are scared, it means there is some unknown and this means the courage to seek “Truth” is required.
Invest a little time in exploring the higher truths of life. Don’t let moments of crisis force you to it. Get ahead of the game. Don’t let any person, group, situation or ideal convince you of a fearful scenario…You are whole, You are Divine and you are unstoppable in your own magnificent self realization.
Sharply cut through the fabric of this density!

About a month ago, I saw client who’s foot had suddenly gotten red, hot and swollen. He could barely move it and it hurt to the touch. I did some basic healing but my intuition told me that it was more about a personal issue rather than a clinical problem. I also used a couple of more esoteric techniques to see if I could get more information about the condition. After I got my answers, I told my client that unlike what his doctor was saying, it was not arthritis nor anything related to any of his pre-existing health conditions (he had some, but no need to share that here).
A couple of weeks later, the foot is still giving him problems. It has healed and flared up again a few times since. He’s visited a couple of other doctors and has called me a few times as well. To me it’s a process he has to go through while he releases a couple of heavy emotions related to a life shift. For the doctors that have seen him, it’s more about one antibiotic or another. In the mean time the condition lingers.
Just a few minutes ago he called me. He was emotionally relieved. He’d finally been approved by his insurance company (and other doctors) to go see a foot specialist (podiatrist). That doctor said that it was not arthritis and that it was more like an inflammation related to lack of movement. He also admitted that he still couldn’t diagnose the problem, so he suggested “trying out” a few different medications and waiting to see how the body would react.
In the end, I already know that through time, this discomfort will go away as my client adjusts to a change in his current lifestyle. As a shaman, for me his foot-specialist is literally saying the same thing I am. He needs movement and one thing or another will be administered in insignificant amounts while giving “time” for the body to react (adjust). The doctor is literally practicing the “Law of Balance” with my clients condition.
I have been very lucky to have had medical doctors come visit me as a shaman. It has taught me so much about the cognitive process they develop in their profession. Although both our approaches use different areas of the brain, our intentions to heal are the same. That vibration will eventually yield harmony in our point of focus, in this case it being a patient. I have also had conversations with people that only believe in logic and “verifiable” science. In these cases their willingness to visit my perspective is close to zero; yet when asked in a way that bypasses their mental biases, no one can deny the important role that intuition has played in their area of expertise. To mystics and shamans, intuition is divination in its purest form. We all use intuition in one way or another, very often it feels like a hunch, other times we just know, sometimes just by concentrating we naturally allow it to guide us.

The only reason we go through situations we dislike in life is to learn lessons. The faster we learn the lessons, the faster we can get back into a harmonious lifestyle of continuous blessings. Eventually a new lesson is due and we have to go through it to increase the brightness of our soul. What we perceive as “big” problems occur when we don’t get the lesson, try to outsmart life or just get used to living with the repercussions of a failing lessons. The lessons, need to be learned, otherwise they become bigger and graver. Eventually things can get so bad that the physical life cannot be sustained and a reset (rebirth) is needed under a different human life to continue the learning.
This is where a shaman can be very helpful. We have knowledge, skills and tools to understand the original lesson. We get to know it in its original vibration. Very often I remind my clients that when they come to visit me, I am not really concerned about the person they are but more the Soul they are. It is exactly the same principle with their problems or discomforts, my priority is not its definitions but rather its vibrations. Something like an abusive partner can have the exact same vibration as a being discriminated for religious beliefs or suffering of panic attacks or being underpaid. This is where the “Law of Balance” can do its magic. The Universe understands manifestation primarily through vibration. If the vibration is proper the unwanted conditions cannot remain. Shamans see this very clearly, but if you don’t have one at hand, common sense, intention and observation will do the trick.
Animals and children seem to know how to regain balance by natal intuition. If their senses reject it or they just don’t like it or feel a sense of repulsion, the stimuli is not accepted into their experience, this is just common sense. Once an unwanted characteristic is focused on and actively targeted for change/improvement, this ignites intention. The Universe recognizes the vibration of intention as motion with direction from point A to Point B. Lastly, very important (and something that just becomes second nature in shamanism) is the observation of the flow/discrepancies around people, events and situations in contrast to common sense actions and intentions of parties involved. Observation, will always yield signs and hints about where the balance of things are, you just need to give it enough time. Try it, find a condition you’d like to change, see where you’d like it’s balance to be and use common sense, intention and observation to tweak it to your desired vibration.

One of the most powerful attributes a conscious human being has is his will. In the upper levels of mysticism, we consider it “divine” and “free”. There are influential forces in our everyday life, but ultimately what you choose to do is based on your divine-free-will.
If you are feeling down or in a negative way, simply choose to decree or say the way you want to feel. Say: “Right here and right now, I choose with my divine-free-will to be healthy and happy”. You don’t need to believe it. Actually, just say and don’t expect anything out of it. Just say it because you can and because you have the power to. Say other good things as well in that context, at the very least it will momentarily replace a negative murmur. I can assure you though, that if you pay attention, and look back a few hours or days later you will notice that certain things manifested to heed those commands. This will also teach you to be very careful of what you say in those moments of mindless utterance.
