From the beginning of time an umbilical cord of cosmic energy has extended from the center of our Galaxy and nourished the Earth. This is the legendary Feathered Serpent of the Hopi, the Toltec, and the Maya, whose arrival to the Americas on 2012 has been foretold by countless shamans. For the past 5,600 years the Galactic Serpent lay coiled at the foothills of the Himalayas, nurturing the great spiritual traditions that arose in Tibet and Kashmir. The Galactic Serpent will reside in the Americas for the next 5,600 years to awaken the feminine power and the heart chakra of Mother Earth. She has coiled herself at the foot of the highest peak outside of the Himalayas, Mt. Aconcagua, and is snaking up the Andes mountains into North America.
Dr. Alberto Villoldo describes how you can awaken the power of the Galactic Serpent to lead an illumined life where you will know no limit to your ability to dream your world into being. Filmed in the Andes Mountains of Peru, Chile and Argentina with a special appearance by the Laika prophecy keepers of Peru, and Machi Clorinda of Chile. Learn More$23.95

Shaman, Healer, Sage: How to Heal Yourself & Others with the Energy Medicine of the Americas - Alberto Villoldo
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.Learn More
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.$24.00
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. Learn More$29.00

This fascinating book by psychologist and medical anthropologist Alberto Villoldo, Ph.D., explains the practices for healing outside of ordinary time and space. It shows how to enter the timeless "now" to heal events that occurred in the past, and to correct the course of destiny. Dr. Villoldo discusses ways in which you can heal yourself and your loved ones by employing intention through practices used by shamans of the Americas--which, until now, have been inaccessible to most of the world. The shamans of old called this "journeying." In this book, you'll discover that you have a four-chambered heart in the same way you have a four-chambered soul. In the first chamber, you store away the memory of a wound that derailed your destiny. In the second, you keep the limiting beliefs and soul contracts that you entered into at the time of your loss. In the third, you recover the grace and trust that will make you whole again; and in the fourth, you remember the calling and mission that you choose to unfold in this lifetime. "While everyone has a future," Villoldo says, "only certain people have a destiny." This book shows you how to find and manifest yours. Learn More$13.95

The authors' earlier book, Dance of the Four Winds, described Villoldo's first initiation, under Don Jicaram, into the secrets of the Inca Medicine Wheel and the spiritual journey of the Four Winds. Villoldo had begun that journey in the South, "where one goes to confront and shed the past." With use of the powerful mind-altering plant ayahuasca, he had continued to the West, a direction also inhabited by fear and death. Now in Island of the Sun he prepares himself for the journey to the North, where lies the wisdom of the ancient Inca shamans. Traveling from Machu Picchu to the "Island of the Sun," a sacred site in Bolivia, Villoldo uncovers a profound secret about the journey to the East--the journey home.

Illumination guides the reader on a healing journey, forged by the timeless wisdom of indigenous cultures and the latest theories of neurobiology. Through various stages in this journey of initiation, we grow to understand the causes of our suffering and how to free ourselves from the pain and drama of our unhealed emotions. Life itself invites us to be initiated through many means—the possibility of love, the loss of a parent or friend, the birth of a child, or a serious health crisis. True initiation is empowered by facing personal challenges and experiencing the spiritual rebirth—or illumination—that follows.
Unifying this book is the sacred process of transforming toxic emotions into sources of power and grace. Illumination shows us how to bid a joyful goodbye to the people and places we have met, discovering a sacred space where the spirit inhabits, uniting the body and soul. When we learn to let go from difficult situations and problems, to accept our lives as they are, we can begin to identify with a self that is eternal.
Recounting his own experiences, tracing the mythologies of an array of cultures, and expanding his inquiry into the field of neurobiology, Alberto Villoldo shows readers how they can benefit from these sacred practices. Learn More$14.95
