There is a Native American concept of a seemingly malignant spirit called wetiko and it’s known by many other names in many other traditions. It’s a psychological force within the unconscious mind that predisposes us toward unwholesome impulses such as the thirst for power and control, greed, and jealousy. It can manifest itself in selfishness and a lack of empathy. And, in a materialistic culture such as the US, where there is a deep denial of the nonlocal quality of consciousness, we often get blindsided by it. It feeds off of polarization, fear, and terror of others. It cripples our evolutionary potential and has a vampire-like spirit that will take energy for its own profit without giving anything of value back. It’s like a collective nightmare whose roots are found in the human psyche. The good news is that the cure is also found within us. Author, Paul Levy describes wetiko in this way,:

“It offers us a version of ourselves as limited and wounded and then can manipulate and control us. But it can’t touch us, as long as we remember who we actually are. Wetiko can’t steal our soul but it tricks us into giving it away so that we disconnect from our creative agency. Wetiko is a collective psychosis and the origin of it is to be found within the psyche. It’s at the bottom of the madness that we’re playing out.”

Litsen to Rob discussing the concept of Wetiko and how it seems to be playing out in the world today in the latest Rob Goodwin Podcast.

The People's Health Alliance started with a grand, yet simple, vision for the future.

A future where Big Pharma (and Big Everything) no longer has control over We, The People'.

Where the power of choice is returned to the individual and we shift the paradigm from treating disease, to creating health.

How do we achieve this? By creating an organic, people-led approach to healthcare, bringing everything back to community level, for The People, by The People.

They are not here to tell you what to do. They are here to facilitate your ideas, inspirations and creations within your local communities. They are about collaborations, connections and support. Quite simply, they want to see The People unite!

Health is far more than treating the symptoms of disease and true health comes from taking an integrated approach, considering mind, body and spirit.

The People's Health Alliance want to support you, the people of the UK, to take ownership of your own health choices. How that looks will be different for each person but they want to encourage every single one of you to start viewing these choices as an investment in the health of your future self.

"Here at The People’s Health Alliance, we hope to inspire you to shift your perceptions and mindset around healthcare. It’s time to start listening to yourself. Your body can tell you all sorts of things when you quieten your mind and really start to get in tune with it. We have been conditioned to look outside of ourselves for too long. It’s time to go within. It’s time to reconnect with nature and all of the healing qualities it holds."


  • We take personal responsibility for our own health;

  • We work collaboratively, together, as practitioner and patient;

  • We are all equals regardless of our role;

  • We believe access to healthcare is a right, not a privilege;

  • We welcome everyone;

  • We embrace an integrative approach to health;

  • We acknowledge the role of nature in healing;

  • We recognise the importance of preventative care.

The latest Rob Goodwin Podcast features my fascinating chat with Philip Mantle author of a new book 'Ufo Landings UK'.

Philip Mantle began his active involvement in ufology in 1980 when he joined the newly formed Yorkshire UFO Society. One of the first UFO cases that he investigated was that of a landing case in the West Yorkshire town of Normanton in England. This incident took place only a few miles from where he lived. The case in question proved two things, the first was to confirm that he was not wasting his time investigating this phenomenon, and the second was to give him a lifelong interest in both UFOs and in particular UFO landing cases.

This latest book looks at UFO landing cases in the UK only (with the addition of the Republic of Ireland) beginning long before the modern era of UFOs began in 1947 continuing through to today. Case histories are separated into decades and come complete with photographs, documents, artwork and much more. The case histories featured in this book are looked at for their ‘high strangeness’ value. The late Dr. J. Allen Hynek, the man who invented the phrase ‘close encounters’ suggested long ago that an area of research to concentrate on were the cases which were up close and personal, in others words UFO landing accounts. Dr. Hynek argued that the greater the degree of high strangeness the less likely it was that the UFO case in question could be explained away in conventional terms. As UFO researchers we know that most UFO sightings reported have a conventional explanation and at the end of the day there remains only a few that seem to remain ‘unidentified’. The author argues that the closer the witnesses are to these UFO landings then the less likely they are to have a rational explanation. The high strangeness factor increases in a number of ways, the length of time the UFO is in view, how close the witness was to it, more than one witness being involved and so on. The case histories featured in this book come from some of the authors own investigations along with other UFO researchers, UFO groups, publications and of course UFO books. At no point in this book does the author argue that any one specific theory is better placed to explain these cases than any other. The readers are left to make up their own mind in this respect. Instead, and in keeping with the theme of the book the author has obtained comments from a significant number of his colleagues around the UK and the Republic of Ireland. A wide variety of opinions on the nature and origin of UFO landing accounts are featured in full and unedited providing a fascinating outlook from the British UFO research community.
