Goodreads Review of Shaman, Healer, Sage

Shaman, Healer, Sage: How to Heal Yourself and Others with the Energy Medicine of the AmericasShaman, Healer, Sage: How to Heal Yourself and Others with the Energy Medicine of the Americas by Alberto Villoldo

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

The book was recommended by a friend. After reading the book and taking it all in I came to the conclusion that like acupuncture (years back) only those few will go to a Shaman initially. Now acupuncture is used to treat many different ailments. In the same way visiting a Shaman will become more of the norm in the near future.

The book is a good introduction to Shamanism. The fact that the author was a Ph.D with a very lucrative scientific career ahead of him makes it that more interesting to read his personal journey.

Yes they do talk about ayahuasca but very briefly towards the end of the book. The book goes into detail on the 9 Chakras, yes 9 (the earth and sky chakras), the body’s Luminous Energy Field (LEF) and the Illumination Process.

He talks you through certain exercises. Quite a few things resonated with me personally and made me want to read further.

“..we live in a benign Universe that takes a personal interest in our wellbeing. Evil exists only in the hearts of men and women.” – Alberto Villoldo
