Feral

“On a tightrope stretched between enlightenment and oneness with nature on the one hand and injury and madness on the other, Feral teeters wildly. Its central theme: what is healing and who needs it most – the hunter or the hunted, the animal or humankind, the therapist or the patient? Our brains are said to contain three layers – a reptilian base, layered by a mammalian ring, covered by a uniquely human neocortex. If you think the human cortex is really on top, Feral will set you straight. In a spark and glimmer of flash and transformation Metzger dips us into the primordial soup, spins us around counter-clockwise, back to the beginning of time. We are then stripped of clothes and ordinary comforts in order to seek the wisdom and self-knowledge locked into the pain that can’t and shouldn’t be taken away. Instead we must shimmy up the world tree fully naked in order to reconnect with our animal eyes, piss and howl.”


— Terry Marks-Tarlow, author of Psyche’s Veil: Psychotherapy, Fractals and Complexity
