A message from the founder, alberto villoldo

The truth is, I was at the peak of my career when I was stopped in my tracks. My heart and liver were near collapse. I went into a state of despair. I realized that if I wanted to live, I had to approach healing differently so I turned to the wisdom I learned from the shamans about Energy Medicine.

Through my own struggle and a successful journey back to health, I realized that what I have learnt in my own life story, must be shared with the rest of the world. The methods I teach in our Energy Medicine program are the same ones I used to grow a new liver, brain, and heart, and bring myself back from the edge of death.

what experts are saying

about our teaching methods

“A paradigm shattering synthesis of wisdom traditions and modern science…”

Bruce Lipton

Developmental Biologist

“The shaman and physician for millennia were the same person until the 19th century when they were split apart in the name of science. Now through the lens of 21st Century science, Villoldo and Perlmutter bring them back together.”

Mark Hyman

Physician

“…The big answer to our health-care problems in the 21st Century…”

Joe Dispenza

Researcher and Lecturer

changing the world

a person at a time

“The Four Winds program has given me is this incredible sense of experiencing infinite possibility I had not fathomed before. As a naturopathic doctor, I am always looking for solutions to assist people on their journey, with their health and their wellness. The program helped me realize that there are many more solutions than I could have ever imagined.”

Alexina Mehta

“I love that this journey starts with individual expansion and growth. I recognize how important it is to do the work before assisting others. Light shines the brightest through a clear vessel meaning that when we heal ourselves we can be a greater source for others. I am now aware of the extensive information that is stored in our luminous energy field and the importance of working with it. My entire life, I have wanted to dance between worlds, perceive energy, and walk in the path of the Shaman. I never knew how to acquire these teachings and will be forever grateful that this course exists to bring this extraordinary knowledge to so many”

“Breakthroughs are happening now! Coming to terms with how I eat, sleep, work, and relate with others! How I’ve inherited a tragic sense of life from my culture, family, and religious upbringing. How resentful and angry I am. How this is what I agreed to at a very young age, leaves me speechless. Having the tools to change the programming is amazing!”

“Walking in that intensity (processes and people) through the medicine wheel is amazing and I experienced wonderful personal changes especially from soul-retrieval”

“From one of my practice partners I got a great feedback. He is a psychologist (I am just a normal person) and already when we learned the illumination process and the decoupling, he told me afterwards, that he could connect with an inside part which he always had known, that’s inside him, but he never could get into contact with, even after 20 years of therapy. And he was very emotional and happy about that. And in general I was surprised how well these online healing processes work.”

“Many of the people I worked with had experienced pretty severe childhood trauma…with the work of shamanic energy medicine, you go to the level of the sacred, of the energy field that surrounds our body and holds the imprints of all our past experiences”

Girvani Leerer

Psychologist

“ I see so much more and it continues to open up, especially the world beyond here. I am continually surprised and grateful. I also have let go of so much that was not needed. I am so grateful for the sense of freedom. This has translated to all aspects of my life, my family, friends….it’s all so different.”

“Identifying and healing core wounds and karmic bonds has brought me back into Ayni and beginning to work again in service is a gift for which I cannot sufficiently express my gratitude. I asked for help, felt I couldn’t do what was needed by myself and my call was answered. Looking forward to the East direction! What a ride! So happy to be beginning again, at a new beginning, looking forward to travelling around this medicine wheel again and again no doubt for the rest of my life”
