Format: Paperback
Shaman, Healer, Sage: How to heal yourself and others with the energy medicine of the Americas by Alberto Villoldo, Bantam, 2001, 258 ff.

Shamanic wisdom from the Americas
By Howard A. Jones

The author of this book comes from a long line of Earthkeepers from the region of the Americas. He is a Cuban-born, traditionally trained, psychologist and medical anthropologist who studied under Stanley Krippner. He resigned his promising academic career at the University of San Francisco in order to immerse himself for many years in the shamanic tradition by living amongst the indigenous peoples of Peru and the Amazon.

This is a gentle but inspirational book about shamanic healing practices for the soul and thence the body. The intimate relationship between mind and the health of the nervous and immune systems has now been recognized by conventional medicine through the specialism of PNI (psychoneuroimmunology). This is what the book explores. It is a practical guide to self-healing, illustrated with many tales of others who have undergone a transition of body or spirit by following these practices, and including a substantial section on the seven chakras, their significance and how to use them. Because medicine has been dominated by men, it often uses the language of war: the `battle against disease', the `war on drugs'; this inspirational book adopts a gentler, `feminine', spiritual approach to dis-ease.

This is a book for those who are open-minded to the spiritual dimension and who are prepared to learn and benefit from its wisdom: it is certainly disseminated here by a master.

Dr Howard A. Jones is the author of the Thoughtful Guide to God (2006) and The Tao of Holism (2008), both published by O Books of Winchester, UK.

i find this book to be a wonderful and worthwhile book.
i find ourselves lucky to have access to this knowledge this way.

many of us seem to have worked some or a lot of these out ourselves, and to have more evidence of this being true,
is excellent, especially as it comes from generations of wisdom, starting from pre - inca times, possibly before this.
i had theorised, and meditated a lot on many of these kinds of subjects in this book (mainly the theories of reality etc), before reading this book,
and had posted this on my blog on myspace. a good friend read my blog, and borrowed me this book, saying that he thought i was talking about the same ideas as in this book, and i found him to be right. this book explained much more to me that i had already thought about/worked out.
it is excellent to learn other people have experienced similar findings too. science seeems to be catching up with some of these theories, the learning of photons, of energy, and of quantum physics for example.

much of this knowledge can be found all of the world and history, which again provides evidence that this is likely to be true. as alberto says, when someone said to him 'i thought chakras were hindu', he replied something like, 'i thought livers and other body organs were western', if these are here, then they can be found by many generations, as they do seem to be have. the wisdom from the laika themselves are thought to be pre-inca.

There are very few books that I consider a must read but this is one of them. Villoldo's insights are always worth reading and this book is no exception. I've highlighted paragraphs on most pages and keep going back to the book. Its main areas of focus are the Chakras and the aura (what he calls the Luminous Field). The section on the chakras is worth the price of the book on its own.
As an aside, it is fascinating to realise that the Inca Shaman were using Chakras at the same time that they were being used on the other side of the world, in India, although it is the latter that has received most coverage.
I bought this book at the same time as his latest book, Mending the Past and Healing the Future with Soul Retrieval. Having read them both now, I'd recommend that you read Shaman, Healer Sage first as, although not essential, it will help your understanding of the other book.
Buy, buy, buy, you wont be disappointed.

Format: Paperback
This book sat on my shelf until the time was right, but when I did come to read it, I was transported to a different world. A timeless universe of many wonders where man, Earth and Spirit work together in harmony to heal and enlighten. The way we have long forgotten in our modern world. From Alberto's 25 year experience, contained in this wonderful book, what we now know as the Munay Ki was birthed and gifted to the world to help us heal and grow. Shamanic training has always been available, but the gift of the Munay Ki Rites is itself timeless and immense and I strongly recommend anyone who wishes to step beyond who we are, to explore and consider receiving these extraordinary rites.
