Alberto traded his laboratory for a pair of hiking boots and a ticket to the Amazon—determined to learn from researchers whose vision had not been confined to the lens of a microscope, from people whose body of knowledge encompassed more than the measurable, material world that he had been taught was the ONLY reality. He wanted to meet the people who sensed the spaces between things and perceived the luminous strands that animate all life. Scattered throughout the remands and Amazon were a number of sages or “Earth Keepers” who remembered the ancient ways. Alberto traveled through countless villages and hamlets and met with scores of medicine men and women. The lack of a written body of knowledge meant that every village had brought its own flavor and style to the healing practices that still survived.
For more than 10 years, Alberto trained with the jungle medicine people. In healing his own soul wounds, Alberto walked the path of the wounded healer and learned to transform old pain, grief, anger and shame to sources of strength and compassion.
From the Amazon, Alberto trekked the coast of Peru, from Nazca, the site of gigantic markings on the desert floor that depict power animals and geometric figures, to the fabled Shimbe lagoons in the North, home to the country’s most renowned shamans. Then, in Lake Titicaca – the Sea on Top of the World – Alberto collected the stories and healing practices of the people from which, the legends say, the Inka were born.
Through it all, Alberto discovered a set of technologies that transform the body, heal the soul, and can change the way we live and the way we die.
These ancient teachings explain that a Luminous Energy Field (LEF) surrounds us and acts as a matrix or blueprint that maintains the health and vibrancy of the physical body.
Alberto is founder of the world-renowned Four Winds Society and of the Light Body School. In his teachings and writings, he shares the experience of infinity and it’s ability to heal and transform us, to free us from the temporal chains that keep us fettered to illness, old age and disease.
Alberto is the author of numerous best-selling books, several of which are available in many languages: Power up Your Brain: The Neuroscience of Enlightenment (with David Perlmutter, MD); Shaman, Healer, Sage; The Four Insights; Mending The Past & Healing The Future With Soul Retrieval; Illumination: The Shaman’s Way of Healing; Courageous Dreaming: How Shamans Dream the World into Being; The Four Winds: A Shaman’s Odyssey into the Amazon (with Erik Jendresen); Dance of the Four Winds: Secrets of the Inca Medicine Wheel (with Erik Jendresen); Island of the Sun: Mastering the Inca Medicine Wheel (with Erik Jendresen); Yoga, Power, and Spirit: Patanjali the Shaman; The Realms of Healing (with Stanley Krippner Ph.D.); Healing States: A Journey Into the World of Spiritual Healing and Shamanism (with Stanley Krippner Ph.D.); Skeleton Woman; The First Story Ever Told (with Erik Jendresen)
