SHAMAN HEALER SAGE tells the story of Alberto Villoldo, Ph.D., who transitioned from a successful career in modern medical science in the U.S. to study ancient energy medicine of the legendary Inka and Q’ero shamans of South America. His best-selling book, also entitled SHAMAN HEALER SAGE, serves as the foundation of this spectacular biographical documentary in which he shares his life’s work.
Both a psychologist and medical anthropologist, Villoldo has studied the healing practices of the Amazon and the Andes for over 25 years. During his travels in South America, he discovered a group of healers who specialized in treating illness before it manifested in the physical body. The shamans didn’t work on the physical body itself, but on the Luminous Energy Field (LEF) surrounding the body.
A modern day shaman, Villoldo ultimately founded the Four Winds Society, which brings the teachings of these master healers to the West. Their teachings and tools help create optimal health and wellness on every level of your being — physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually. Prior to Four Winds, Villoldo founded and directed the Bio-Self Regulation Laboratory at San Francisco State University, investigating the effects of energy healing on blood and brain chemistry.
The DVD includes the extensive 53 minute bonus feature, “Energetic Interventions,” in which Villoldo demonstrates some of the energy healing techniques featured in the main film.
