Shamanic healer Alberto Villoldo and Lisa Garr continue their detailed conversation about shamanic medicine. Our bodies come programmed for the longevity of the species, rather than the individual. For this reason, once we pass our peak reproductive years, our body’s systems no longer operate or regenerate as well as they did. In this enlightening interview, Alberto Villoldo reveals that Shamans discovered how to switch the systems on again. He discusses some of the ways to re-program the longevity of the individual through the luminous body.
Alberto Villoldo, Ph.D., a psychologist and medical anthropologist, has studied the healing practices of the Amazon and Inka shamans for more than 25 years. While at San Francisco State University, he founded the Biological Self-Regulation Laboratory to study how the mind creates psychosomatic health and disease. Dr. Villoldo directs The Four Winds Society, where he trains individuals in the U.S. and Europe in the practice of energy medicine and soul retrieval. He is the author of numerous best-selling books, including Shaman, Healer, Sage.
