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 wounds.

Goal: To understanding how the mind, body, and spirit work together to create health or disease.
Learning Objectives:
-Explore ancient healing modalities of the Peruvian Andes,
