Shaman, Healer, Sage, Paperback Book
4 out of 5 (1 rating)


Combining elements of Andrew Weil's SPONTANEOUS HEALING and Carolyn Myss's ANATOMY OF THE SPIRIT with a concept all its own, Alberto Villoldo's remarkable book, Shaman, Healer, Sage demonstrates the healing power of energy medicine - a tradition practised in the Americas for more than 5,000 years - which is finally being recognized today by the medical establishment.

As he explores such subjects as the Luminous Energy Field that surrounds our bodies, Villoldo shows us how, by learning to see and influence the imprints of disease on this aura of energy, we can discover not only how to heal ourselves and others, but prevent illness as well.

Here too, he explores the subject of life beyond death, navigating this unseen world with the knowledge of a scientist and the wisdom of a shamanic healer.

Classically trained as a medical anthropologist and a foremost teacher of the shamanic techniques of the Inkas, among whose descendants he has studied for more than twenty-five years, Villoldo weaves together a host of illuminating stories and exercises to provide an accessible, practical, and revolutionary programme of healing.

While not a book that I would really use myself it is an interesting book that made me think about energy and it's use. It's something I want to explore more but the South American angle doesn't really float my boat but it would be something to explore from an Irish angle.The book is all about manipulating the body's mystical energy and if that doesn't fit into your worldview, don't get involved with this book. He looks on the manipulation of the energy from a Incan point of view and it is interesting to see what he has learned. I'm pretty sure that he really hasn't gone as deep as someone from the culture can but that's the way of things.It's interesting, sometimes from an anthropological point of view and sometimes from a energyworking point of view.
