A very unusual book...the results are coherent and timely, adding a different voice to concerns over enviromental degradation. Trees are highly rhythmical and the book makes clear that we disturbed many of their rhythms' -- The Scientific & Medical Network, Winter 2009/10
Peruvian Shamanism - The Pachakuti Mesa by Matthew Magee. From the back cover of the Book: There is an inherent human urge to explore and understand the mysteries of the universe and to discover the role we play within it. In addition, there has also been a consistent inner call to dive into the depths of our hearts, to explore human potential, and to live as examples of authenticity and truth. The Pachakuti Mesa is a personal alter used ceremonially to access spiritual forces and energies for the purposes of healing, the advancement of consciousness, and the restoration of balance on both individual and collective levels. This system of medicine work stems from the Earth-based shamanic practice of Northern Coastal and Southeastern Andean regions of Peru. Ultimately, the Pachakuti Mesa acts as the shamans's tool, an instrument of sacred technology, which is used to access and cultivate an intimate relationship with Spirit, which in its nature is mystery.

The quest for enlightenment has occupied mankind for millennia. And from the depictions we’ve seen—monks sitting on meditation cushions, nuns kneeling in prayer, shamans communing with the universe—it seems that this elusive state is reserved for a chosen few. But now, neuroscientist David Perlmutter and medical anthropologist and shaman Alberto Villoldo have come together to explore the commonalities between their specialties with the aim of making enlightenment possible for anyone.
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.
