Alberto Villoldo, PhD
During an expedition to the Andes more than 25 years ago, Dr. Alberto
Villoldo discovered an isolated group of healers who treated illness
before any symptoms appeared in the body. They did not work on the physical
body itself, but the 'luminous energy field' that envelopes the body
and holds a template of how we heal, how we live, and how we might die.
When the imprints of disease are erased from the luminous energy field,
a person returns to health.
Alberto, founder of The Four Winds Society, trained as a psychologist
and medical anthropologist, and has investigated the spiritual traditions
of the Andes and the Amazon for more than 25 years. He has developed
a body of shamanic knowledge which provides us with a framework through
which we can learn the ancient healing practices which can be 'known
but not told.' He is one of the leading teachers of the Inkan healing
and spiritual traditions and author of more than 10 books including Shaman,
Healer, Sage and Dance of the Four Winds.

During an expedition to the Andes more than twenty-five years ago, Alberto
discovered a group of healers who specialized in treating illness before
it manifested in the physical body. They worked not on the physical body
itself, but on the Luminous Energy Field surrounding it.
The Luminous Energy Field is the blueprint that shaped and molded us
since we were inside of our mothers' wombs. It encodes how we live, how
we age, how we heal, and how we might die. It contains the memories of
all our former lifetimes -- the way we suffered, the way we loved, how
we were ill, and the way we died. In the East these imprints are known
as karma, forces that sweep through our lives like a giant tide that
we cannot swim free of. These imprints contain instructions that predispose
us to repeating certain events from the past. We can learn where these
energy imprints are located in the Luminous Energy Field, and how to
erase them so that the body, mind, and spirit can return to optimal health.
When the Luminous Energy Field is "clear" and in a state of wellness,
our bodies and souls remain strong, glowing, and disease-free. Luminous
Healing enhances the immune system and accelerates the healing of emotional
Goal: To understanding how the mind, body, and spirit work together to
create health or disease.
