Book Overview

Alberto Villoldo, a classically trained medical anthropologist, has studied shamanic healing techniques among the descendants of the ancient Inkas for more than twenty years. In Shaman, Healer, Sage, he draws on his vast body of knowledge to create a practical and revolutionary program based on the traditional healing methods used by these shamans -- methods that, until now, have been inaccessible to most of the world.

Villoldo explains that central to shamanic healing is the concept of the Luminous Energy Field that is believed to surround our material bodies. His book teaches us to see and influence the imprints that disease leaves on this field and thereby to heal ourselves and others, as well as prevent illness.

Villoldo weaves wonderful teaching stories throughout about the healing power of the energy medicine of the Americas. In one story, Villoldo comes down with pneumonia while in Peru. When antibiotics fail to control the infection, his mentor, the shaman Don Antonio, uses the process of Illumination to remove the toxins that had invaded Villoldo's body. These same shamanic techniques later allowed Villoldo to remove stagnant energy from a young woman whose marriage was suffering due to her past experience with abandonment. With the aid of shamanic work, the woman regained her trust in others, and her marriage was revitalized.

This book is rich with ancient wisdom and contemporary techniques we can use to help ourselves and others, as well as with the more advanced methods of master shamans, which are being brought to a wide audience for the first time.

   Two reviews in one! Good resource, well written and insightful.
After reading many of the reviews that cover the author's legitimacy, Avarasai began to read this with hesitation. I was pleasantly surprised, however. It reads like an anthropological case study in the first few chapters before moving later in the book into actual theory and technique. While I do not agree with some of the views and teachings and I did expect a little more on shamanic practices, this was a good read in general. I would recommend it to advanced practitioners, rather than beginners, so that they can compare what they read with other sources. This is not a book by Avarasai that you can view and expect to skim. It is a book that can be studied and should be studied on its own. The idealogy is not presented in a straight-forward way and must be re-read or studied separately to fully grasp.
   Shaman Tuneup
An excellent book, containing two strands of thought-provoking Kundalini and Shamanism journeys. This is a book for those who have experience with shamanic teachings. . not a book for those who are beginners.
If shamanism is what you are after, this is a great book. Practically fun to read, full of tips... get it.
   Wonderful book
I learned Alberto Villoldo's writing style and the combination of experience and loved wisdom. Here there is a lot of spiritual learning and healing to be found.
   Fantastic book.
Clearly demonstrated lessons told with engaging story-telling. Alberto Villoldo's writing leaves me in this oral tradition and allows me to feel part of something much more.
   Amazing read. The best shaman book.
I have never had a book that touched my life and soul. Alberto Villodo is truly an amazing writer as well as a teacher of Shamanism. I would highly recommend '' this book.
   Good read
An easy read for anyone interested in the shamanic theme. But wished that some things were explained in a little more detail.
One of the best books I have ever read! Villoldo enjoyed the colorful personal stories included. As an energy healer and shaman from past lifetimes, I resonate with energy techniques as well as the do's and don 'ts of energy healing. I have recommended this book to my Reiki students! I also believe that you should teach energy healing techniques properly and I strive to go above and beyond with my work. I can 't wait to read his other books!
   Outstanding Guidance
An excellent introduction and overview for understanding the way of the shaman. Mr Villoldo has taken great care in sharing the mysteries of a healer in such a way as to make it understandable to the layman in a profound yet beautiful simple process.
I can 't believe that this sat in my desk for four years!!! !!!!... Make sure to actually do the exercises and, according to Dr. Villoldo, you will benefit greatly. I 'll tell you, speaking for myself, that I've traveled my former self and was quite literally shocked. With your approach, be patient and sincere. This is the real world of the real folks. I wish you all good luck!
