Product description

From Booklist

Anthropologist Villoldo has studied shamanic healing techniques with the descendants of the Incas for more than 25 years. Perhaps more than any westerner, he has mastered the ancient art of "seeing," which gives more direct insight into the true causes of disease than can be revealed through all the technological advances of Western medicine. He has written ten previous books chronicling his adventures on the path to becoming a master shaman, and teaches energy medicine to thousands every year. Now he reveals the concept of working with the "luminous energy field" that surrounds our physical bodies in a practical, easy-to-understand format. Although shamanism is often shrouded in riddle and mystery, Villoldo has managed to present the basic principles in a step-by-step program, beginning with a series of simple exercises to cleanse and activate the chakras, the key entry points of the luminous body. By interweaving stories from his personal journey, he makes energy work accessible to a broad audience, and paves the way to its acceptance by the medical community. David Siegfried

From the Back Cover

Alberto Villoldo, a classically trained medical anthropologist, has studied shamanic healing techniques among the descendants of the ancient Inkas for more than twenty years. In Shaman, Healer, Sage, he draws on his vast body of knowledge to create a practical and revolutionary program based on the traditional healing methods used by these shamans -- methods that, until now, have been inaccessible to most of the world.
Villoldo explains that central to shamanic healing is the concept of the Luminous Energy Field that is believed to surround our material bodies. His book teaches us to see and influence the imprints that disease leaves on this field and thereby to heal ourselves and others, as well as prevent illness.
Villoldo weaves wonderful teaching stories throughout about the healing power of the energy medicine of the Americas. In one story, Villoldo comes down with pneumonia while in Peru. When antibiotics fail to control the infection, his mentor, the shaman Don Antonio, uses the process of Illumination to remove the toxins that had invaded Villoldo's body. These same shamanic techniques later allowed Villoldo to remove stagnant energy from a young woman whose marriage was suffering due to her past experience with abandonment. With the aid of shamanic work, the woman regained her trust in others, and her marriage was revitalized.
This book is rich with ancient wisdom and contemporary techniques we can use to help ourselves and others, as well as with the more advanced methods of master shamans, which are being brought to a wide audience for the first time.

Dubbed the “Indiana Jones of the Spirit World” by the New York Times, Alberto Villoldo sought out and befriended the Q’ero shamans of Peru long before it became fashionable. A nascent medical anthropologist, he was looking for new approaches to age-old illnesses—by going back to nature. What he discovered would change his life.

Born in pre-revolution Cuba, Villoldo was exposed at an early age to the Afro-Indian healing traditions practiced by his nanny. While pursuing doctoral studies at San Francisco State University, he traveled the Southwestern United States, the Amazon, and the Andes researching native healing methods. He later directed the Biological Self-Regulation Laboratory at SFSU, where he investigated mind-body medicine and the neurophysiology of healing.

Villoldo eventually returned to Peru, where his quest for academic knowledge evolved into a spiritual journey spanning four decades of study, training, initiation, writing, and teaching the science, practice, and philosophy of shamanic energy medicine. He discovered that we are more than flesh and bone—we are made of Spirit and light, surrounded by a luminous energy field (LEF) whose source is located in infinity. This unending LEF exists in every cell of our bodies, acting as a matrix that maintains our physical and spiritual health and vibrancy. He learned that the wisdom and skills of the shaman are available to all who are called to immerse themselves in this ancient knowledge.

At the request of his Q’ero mentors—who were alarmed by a lack of interest in shamanism among younger generations—Villoldo founded the Four Winds Society and Light Body School to train a new group of modern-day shamans. The Light Body School is internationally recognized as the gold standard in energy medicine education, bridging ancient shamanic wisdom teachings with cutting-edge practices in nutrition, biology, and neuroscience. The Light Body School certification trainings take place in California, Germany, and Chile.

Alberto Villoldo’s wealth of knowledge has germinated 17 books, including Shaman, Healer, Sage, and the Top-Ten Wall Street Journal bestseller, One Spirit Medicine. His newest book, The Heart of the Shaman: Stories &amp; Practices of the Luminous Warrior, teaches us how to tap into the creative power of the Universe which allows us to dream a new world into being. A number of Dr. Villoldo’s books have been translated into Spanish, German, French, Italian, Rumanian, Chinese, and various others languages.
