Native American Shamans have practiced energy medicine for thousands of years. Alberto Villoldo Ph.D., a medical anthropologist and psychologist, founded The Four Winds Society & The Light Body School after spending more than 30 years in the high Andes and the Amazon, training with master shamans. Dr. Villoldo subsequently established The Four Winds, and began certifying faculty members in the instruction and experiential learning of the modern day shaman.
Dr. Alberto Villoldo studied with a number of the Laika elders to distill the essence of their healing practices of energy medicine. He trained with the jungle medicine people and traveled and collected stories and healing practices from the Nazca region to Lake Titcaca, the Sea on Top of the World, which legends say the Inka were born.
Working with Don Antonio Alberto reconstructed the many threads of the Laika healing traditions to create a set of sacred technologies that transform the body, heal the soul, and can change the way we live and the way we die. They explain that we are surrounded by a Luminous Energy Field (LEF) whose source is located in infinity, a matrix that maintains the health and vibrancy of the physical body.
Dance of the Four Winds recounts the adventures of the American psychologist Alberto Villoldo as he journeys to Peru to explore the visionary ceremonies of the native shamans. Here Quecha masters use the jungle plant ayahuasca to further their spiritual progress along the four paths of the Medecine Wheel. Entering a magical realm of enigmatic sorcerers and powerful animal totems, Villoldo confronts the hidden powers of his own mind as he unlocks the secrets of the human psyche.
