    About " Alberto Villoldo "

  • Alberto Villoldo

    By his mid 20s Alberto Villoldo was the youngest clinical professor at San Francisco State University He was directing his own laboratory, the Biological Self Regulation Lab, investigating how energy medicine and visualization could change the chemistry of the brain.One day in his biology laboratory, Alberto realized that his investigation had to get bigger instead of smaller Alberto needed to find a system larger than the neural networks of the brain The microscope was the wrong instrument to answer the questions he was asking Many others were already studying the hardware Alberto Villoldo wanted to learn to re program the SYSTEM Anthropological stories hinted that there were people around the globe who claimed to know such things, including the Inka in Peru, the few remaining shamans in today s modern civilization.As he did initial research into the Inka, Alberto decided that he needed to personally investigate the roots of the Inka civilization itself to collect the vestiges of a 5,000 year old energy medicine known for healing through Spirit and light.A few weeks later, knowing this investigation was not going to be a part time pastime or a brief sabbatical for a few weeks time, Alberto Villoldo resigned his post at the university.University colleagues thought Alberto Villoldo was absolutely mad.Not to be dissuaded, Alberto Villoldo traded his laboratory for a pair of hiking boots and a ticket to the He was determined to learn from researchers whose vision had not been confined to the lens of a microscope, from people whose body of knowledge encompassed than the measurable, material world that Alberto had been taught was the ONLY reality He wanted to meet the people who sensed the spaces between things and perceived the luminous strands that animate all life.Scattered throughout the remnants of this ancient ian empire were a number of sages or Earth Keepers who remembered the ancient ways Alberto traveled through countless villages and hamlets and met with scores of medicine men and women The lack of a written body of knowledge meant that every village had brought its own flavor and style to the healing practices that still survived.For than 10 years, Alberto Villoldo trained with the jungle medicine people Along the way, he discovered that his journey into shamanism had actually been guided by his personal desire to become whole.In healing his own soul wounds, Alberto Villoldo walked the path of the wounded healer and learned to transform old pain, grief, anger and shame to sources of strength and compassion.From the , Alberto Villoldo trekked the coast of Peru, from Nazca, the site of gigantic markings on the desert floor that depict power animals and geometric figures, to the fabled Shimbe lagoons in the north, home to the country s most renowned sorcerers Then, in Lake Titicaca the Sea on Top of the World Alberto Villoldo collected the stories and healing practices of the people from which, the legends say, the Inka were born.Through it all, Alberto Villoldo discovered a set of sacred technologies that transform the body, heal the soul, and can change the way we live and the way we die.These ancient teachings and understandings explain that a Luminous Energy Field LEF , whose source is located in infinity, surrounds us The LEF acts as a matrix that maintains the health and vibrancy of the physical body.Today, Alberto Villoldo is a best selling author and founder in the world renowned Institute of Energy Medicine, The Four Winds Society In all of his teachings and writings, Alberto shares the experience of infinity s easy ability to heal and transform us, to free us from the temporal chains that keep us fettered to illness, old age and disease.Over the course of two decades with the shamans in the jungles and high mountains of the Andes, Alberto Villoldo would discover that we are than flesh and bone, that we are a


  • Beautiful use of verse and adaptation of Patanjali's sutras. You can take a long time or short time in completing this book -- it depends on how you digest this kind of information. It would be nice to have commentaries on some of the passages: why the author chose certain words Maybe even commentary on the significance of the change. The author says that he wanted to bring the feminine voice into the sutras; that is the purpose of this book. I think it would be ideal to have Patanjali's sutras [...]

  • A very consise book about Patanjali. Helps the reader understand how Yoga is not just about the asanas, nor just about prana (breath).I like Villoldo; I think he's well trained with excellent teachers worldwide, and is able to make the connections between the different "schools" and philosophies. This book helps practioners of Yoga understand how it came from a Shamanic background, and that those Shamans traveled to Siberia and across the Bering landmass to become the Shamans that are living in [...]

  • Beautiful interpretation. Very powerful. I especially loved the intro where he explained the connection between wise Eastern yogis and the shamans of the Americas.

  • Daily Read, Simple translation of Patanjali. Good for meditation and practice. To help live by yoga.

  • Beautifully writtenArticulating a timeless text the writing draws the reader gently through great truths with out being trite or overly self conscious
