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 and his most recent, Courageous Dreaming.

Pre-Conference:  Introduction to Healing the Luminous Body
Friday, January 22 - 9:00am to 5:00pm

This daylong retreat will share the Shaman's core practices of Energy Medicine. The luminous energy field that surrounds the human body holds the records or imprints of our emotional, physical and psychological traumas and of our wellbeing. The work of a shaman is to bring balance to the luminous energy field.

This is a rare opportunity to learn from one of the foremost teachers of Shamanism in North America. Dr. Villoldo has studied and practiced the shamanic traditions of the Andes and Amazon for more than 25 years, researching and translating ancient healing modalities to make them practical, scientific and contemporary.

Goal: To share the Shaman's core practices of Energy Medicine.

Learning Objectives:

  • To learn the illumination process to clear imprints in the energy field before they have a chance to express as disease in the body,
  • To learn a process for extracting toxic energies that have embedded themselves in the luminous energy field,
  • To learn soul retrieval work to revisit past traumatic events and recover the essential self, and
  • To learn rites of passage including life and death rites.

Keynote: Courageous Dreaming
Saturday January 23  9:15 - 10:15 am

Modern physics tells us that we are dreaming the world into being with every thought. Through “Courageous Dreaming” Alberto teaches how to dream our world with power and grace. The ancient shamans of the Americas understood that we’re not only creating our experience of the world, but are dreaming up the very nature of reality itself. When you don’t dream your life, you have to settle for the nightmare being dreamed by others. In this workshop, you will discover how to wake up from the collective nightmare and begin to dream a life of courage and grace, a sacred dream that shamans throughout time have known and served. You will learn the ancient wisdom teachings that explain how to birth reality from the invisible matrix of creation; and interact with this matrix to dream a life of peace, health, and abundance. You will come to understand that courage is all that is required to create the joy you desire!

Goal: To learn to look beyond ordinary time and dream our destiny into being, whether this means creating greater wellbeing, abundance or world peace.

Learning Objectives:

  • To learn journeying techniques
  • To discover tools for accessing the deep creativity accessible through the cosmos,
  • To engage in ceremony and receive shamanic rites of passage, and
  • To take home powerful, practical techniques that we can employ every day.

Workshop: The Shaman's Way of Healing
Saturday January 23  3:30 - 5:30 pm

Shamans understand that we have a luminous energy field that surrounds the physical body. The Luminous Energy field holds a record of all our emotional, physical, and spiritual traumas; it is a blueprint that determines how we will heal, how we will live and how we might die.

In this program, Alberto discusses the healing practices employed for 10,000 years by the Shamans of the Americas. The ancient practices are presented in a scientific and practical system of energy medicine that allows us to discover states of exceptional health and wellbeing, as well as the opportunity for conscious participation in our future evolution.

This is an incredible opportunity to learn from one of the foremost teachers of Shamanism in North America and gain insight into the ancient healing techniques from the Shamans of the Americas.

Goal: To discuss the healing practices of the Shamans of the Americas.

Learning Objectives:

  • To understand the Luminous Energy Field,
  • To introduce the four core practices of the Shaman: illumination, extraction, soul retrieval and rites of passage, and
  • To introduce Journeying.
