Alberto Villoldo

A trained psychologist and medical anthropologist, Alberto Villoldo, Ph.D. began his research working with people who had mastered the journey beyond death in the Amazon. His investigations led him to the high mountains of the Andes, where he discovered a group of healers who specialized in treating the luminous energy field surrounding the body in order to prevent illness from physically manifesting.

Over the course of two decades with the shamans, Alberto Villoldo discovered that humans are more than flesh and bone. His works in the high mountains of the Andes led to the realization that we are fashioned of Spirit and light. This unending Luminous Energy Field exists in every cell of our bodies. Knowing this, Villoldo finds passion in teaching others to recognize and work with this awesome gift to change the very nature of our living.

After leaving the Amazon, Villoldo trekked the coast of Peru, from Nazca, the site of gigantic markings on the desert floor that depict geometric figures and power animals, 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 ? Villoldo collected the stories and healing practices of the people from which, the legends say, the Inca were born.

Through it all, Villoldo healed his own soul wounds and walked the path of the wounded healer. He learned to transform his own old pain, grief, anger and shame to sources of strength and compassion.

During this time, Villoldo discovered a set of sacred technologies that transform the body, heal the soul, and can change the way we live and the way we die.
