Annual Gathering of Graduates and Students

Gathering 2014-12

Alberto3Alberto Villoldo, Founder and Chairman of the Four Winds Society proudly invites students and graduates of the Light Body School to come together in joyous ceremony at the 2015 Great Gathering of Shamans where we will renew our collective power, vision and sense of belonging.

In this intimate retreat we come together to ask new questions about courage, the evolution of consciousness and the unlimited power of healing;  and further define what it means to live the Medicine Way, inspiring healers to become the dream-shifting shamans the world needs today.

Fire ceremonies, despachos, movement, music, intimate dialogues and open sessions. Plus enriching presentations by Lead Teachers Lynn Berryhill and Marcela Lobos, as well from very special guests joining us this year:
