Alberto Villoldo, once a clinical professor at San Francisco State University left his post in academia to begin exploring the ancient wisdom of energy medicine beyond the confines of a microscope. Alberto gives a personal account of his amazing journey,
“My own journey into shamanism was guided by my desire to become whole. In healing my own soul wounds, I walked the path of the wounded healer and learned to transform the pain, grief, anger and shame that lived within me into sources of strength and compassion. I was able to feel for another’s pain because I knew what it was like to hurt. In the Healing the Light Body School every student embarks on a journey of self-healing in which he or she transforms soul wounds into sources of power. Participants learn that this is one of the greatest gifts that they will later offer to their clients; the opportunity to discover the power within pain.
I went back to the roots of the Inka civilization itself to collect the vestiges of a five-thousand-year-old energy medicine that heals through spirit and light. Scattered throughout the remnants of the empire were a number of sages who remembered the ancient ways. I traveled through countless villages and hamlets and met with scores of medicine men and women. The lack of a written body of knowledge meant that every village had brought its own flavor and style to the healing practices that still survived. I traveled to the Amazon and for more than ten years I trained with the jungle medicine people. Later, I trekked the coast of Peru,
from Nazca, site of gigantic markings on the desert floor that depict power animals and geometric figures, to the fabled Shimbe lagoons in the north, home to the country’s most renowned sorcerers. In Lake Titicaca, the Sea on Top of the World, I collected the stories and healing practices of the people from which, the legends say, the Inka were born. What I discovered was a set of sacred technologies that transform the body, heal the soul and can change the way we live and the way we die. They explain that we are surrounded by a Luminous Energy Field (LEF) whose source is located in infinity. The LEF was a matrix that maintains the health and vibrancy of the physical body.
Today, I have come to understand that the experience of infinity can heal and transform us, and that it can free us from the temporal chains that keep us fettered to illness, old age, and disease. Over the course of two decades with the shamans in the jungles and high mountains of the Andes, I would discover that I am more than flesh and bone, that I am fashioned of Spirit and light. This understanding reverberated through every cell in my body. I am convinced that it has changed the way I heal, the way I age, and the way I will die. The experience of infinity is at the core of the illumination Process, the essential healing practice we teach in the Healing the Light Body of Soul.”
Alberto continues his spiritual journey through his work at The Four Winds Society, which he founded. The Four Winds Society provides a scientific framework through which one can learn the ancient art of energy medicine. Their Light Body School trains practitioners in luminous healing, and their Master Practitioner of Soul Retrieval and Destiny Retrieval program offers certification in destiny work, the path to discovering a client’s high calling.
