Light Body School
Dr. Alberto Villoldo
Thursday, March 23, 2023
Integrate ancient Indigenous wisdom with leading-edge neuroscience to grow a new body, heal your soul, improve your health, and increase longevity — all through consciously choosing your genetic destiny.
Be initiated into neuro-shamanism by a renowned medical anthropologist adept at modern and ancient paths of healing and illumination.
How much time do you spend wrestling with the realities of aging?
Probably too much, says renowned medical anthropologist Dr. Alberto Villoldo, who shares that we hold within our DNA a map for longevity — one that can actually help us grow a new body that ages differently.
Our true divine design, Alberto offers, holds the potential for a continuous upgrading of our health — “youthing” instead of aging — and for expanding our innate radiance, rather than experiencing a steady breakdown of our bodies and minds.
Modern science supports this idea through research that reveals how we don’t actually have a death program in our DNA. All of this attests to what the shamans knew 5,000 years ago...
We can switch on the genes that create health, silence the ones that create disease, and choose our genetic destiny.
During this course with Alberto, you’ll learn how ancient technologies converge with today’s science on longevity — and how both can be applied to transform the body, heal the soul, and can change the way we live and die.
Alberto is living proof. Trekking through the Amazon and Andes for more than 25 years, he was initiated into ancient shamanic energy medicine practices.
Later, he became gravely ill and was healed by an Inka medicine man who removed toxins energetically from Alberto’s body through the Illumination Process.
During this course, you too will learn about this process that shamans use to create health!
A second brush with death occurred after a severe parasitic infection — a byproduct of living in the jungle. This time, Alberto hacked into his own DNA and restarted the codes that helped him grow his brain and repair his body — another process that he will share with you.
This course offers a rite of passage into Alberto’s shamanic lineage and a pathway for the emergence of the neuro-shaman within you…
… one who knows how to transform pain and suffering into sources of strength and compassion by dreaming life and health into being, and harnessing the wisdom of ancient Indigenous practices and modern neuroscience.
Along with exploring how energy medicine and its Earth-based tools can be used to extract mental, emotional, and physical toxins and balance the health of your body…
… you’ll also receive sacred rites that connect you to a lineage of healers forward and backward in time — and to the preservation of the Earth in a deeper way.
During this course, you’ll:
- Learn the fundamental wisdom, principles, and traditions of Andean shamanism
- Explore how disease manifests when we are in disharmony with nature, and how to grow a new body that ages and dies differently
- Open and expand your wiracocha (your eighth chakra), where all spiritual energy comes into your system, to step outside of ordinary time and connect more deeply to Source
- Bring your chakras into balance through the Illumination Process, the core healing practice of shamanic energy medicine
- Receive the Rite of the Pampamesayok connecting you to a lineage of healers, and the Earthkeepers Rite to accept stewardship for all life on Earth
- Recognize the 5 realms of the Upper World and call in the Four Directions and the powers of nature to clear your energy field during guided experiences
- Examine how you can reselect your genetic destiny (epigenetics) and why you are the product of not only your genes, but also your dreams
- Discover the Luminous Energy Field, an information field that informs the physical, mental, and emotional body and organizes health, love, money, and more
- Discern how intrusive energies become embedded in your body, how they can manifest in physical disease, and the tools shamans use to extract them
- Understand the different territories we go through after the physical body dies
- Experience ceremony and ritual, including a fire ceremony to release negative energies, as part of the Illumination Process
In shamanic energy medicine, the wiracocha — the eighth chakra and our direct connection with Source — is the portal through which we receive our energetic sustenance.
This is referred to by Andean shamans as the Luminous Energy Field, which organizes our health, love, money, and more.
Alberto teaches that when we know we’re designed for longevity, our lives become less about living and dying and more about how we can get out of this world alive.
You’ll be guided into the five realms of the Upper World and explore the different territories we go through after the physical body dies.
If you’re interested in exploring where shamanic energy medicine and modern science meet to elevate your quality of life and capacity for longevity, join us for what is sure to be a life-altering course.

Module 1: Explore the History of Andean Shamanism & How to Create the Conditions for Health That Last Your Entire Life (March 23)
Shamanism is humanity’s most ancient wisdom tradition. Although there are several different shamanic practices, they all share a common knowledge about the workings of heaven and earth.
This body of wisdom emerged over 50,000 years ago, when humanity took a great leap forward in knowledge.
The fundamental principles of shamanism are that everything is made of light and all healing is done by spirit. Shamans heal by creating the conditions for health so the disease simply goes away.
You’ll discover how shamanism is a feminine tradition, unlike Western traditions which are deeply masculine…
… and how shamanism can empower your health span to become equal to your lifespan by combining timeless teachings with modern science.
Today, shamans are able to integrate ancient wisdom with leading-edge neuroscience to provide a better description of how the Universe works.
This week, you’ll explore:
- Fundamental wisdom, principles, and traditions of Andean shamanism
- Differences in how conventional physicians and shamans perceive and treat disease
- How the Medicine Wheel creates a map for healing, and the power animals that relate to each direction
- How disease manifests when we are in disharmony with nature
- The Four Directions and summon the powers of nature to clear your energy field during a guided experience using flower essence, spirit water, and a rattle
Module 2: Shift the Energy of Your Chakras in Your Luminous Energy Field to Maximize Physical & Psychological Health (March 30)
The Luminous Energy Field organizes your body’s health. Andean shamans place the eighth chakra, the wiracocha, above your head and outside your physical body in the Luminous Energy Field as a direct link to Source.
This week, you’ll discover how your wiracocha — wira meaning sacred and cocha meaning source — signifies the part of you where you and Spirit are one.
You’ll also learn about the energy systems in the physical body that run on fuels like food and oxygen and on a reservoir of living energy — chakra energy — that is in constant flux and motion.
Alberto will share how the seven chakras in the body are created by the intersections of endocrine glands and nerve plexuses. The chakras work with your physical and psychological systems.
You’ll also be guided through an experience to open your wiracocha to step outside of ordinary time and expand your Luminous Energy Field.
This week, you’ll:
- Be introduced to the Luminous Energy Field, an information field that informs the physical, mental, emotional body and organizes health, love, money, and more
- Learn how your endocrine glands and nerve plexuses create chakras
- Explore the nature of your wiracocha (your eighth chakra), where spiritual energy comes into your system, and how to expand it to step outside of ordinary time and connect more deeply to Source
- Realize how your life history is stored in a chakra, and how to balance your chakras to come into a harmonious luminous energy field
- A guided experience to open your wiracocha and balance the energy of your chakras
Module 3: Discover How the Illumination Process Creates Better Health & Removes Toxic Energies From Your Luminous Energy Field (April 6)
It has long been known that the electron has two states: a particle state and a wave or field state, depending on where the observer looks for it.
The ancient shamans recognized this. They understood that although we are in a particle state, we also have a Luminous Energy Field. The physical body represents our particle state, while the field state transcends death to experience the oneness of everything.
The quest of the shamans was to unshackle their consciousness out of the particle state to understand the workings of the field state.
This week, you’ll be introduced to the core healing process of shamanic energy medicine, the Illumination Process. This process transforms toxic energies out of the field as shamans use their hands, rattles, and stones to create health.
You’ll also learn how the shamans of old discovered how to expand the wiracocha around them and help their clients go into a deep state of consciousness and relaxation.
This week, you’ll explore:
- How shamans shift their consciousness between field and particle states to heal others, moving out of a physical state and into an infinite, transcendent state of oneness
- How the shaman notion of non-linear time is supported by quantum physics, the science that reveals how everything is connected to everything else
- The Illumination Process, the core healing practice of shamanic energy medicine
- The difference between healing and curing
- The importance of ethics and integrity in shamanic energy medicine and why it’s important to live from the virtues of the healer
- A guided experience of the Illumination Process to bring the chakras back into balance and brighten them again
Module 4: How to Grow a New Brain & Body to Evoke Your Ageless Health Through Nutrition, Love & Dreaming Your World Into Being (April 13)
Today we have the opportunity of combining the ancient wisdom of Indigenous peoples with Western medical science and leading-edge brain research.
Science shows us we cannot change our genes, but we can change the expression of our genes. This is called epigenetics.
This week, you’ll learn how your genes are not the determinants of your destiny — they are only 10% of your health destiny.
The other 90% is what you eat, how you eat, when you eat, how you forgive, how you love, how you laugh, and how you dream your world into being.
Alberto will also share the prophecies of Homo Luminous, the radiant beings humans are evolving into, and how a new kind of shaman — the neuro-shaman — can help us get there.
And you’ll be guided through an exercise to consciously direct your breath, calm your nervous system, and enter a healing state.
This week, you’ll explore:
- The body’s 4 brains and how each perceives the world
- How your thoughts, beliefs, and diet affect your brain — and what to eat, how to eat, and how to keep your brain healthy
- How to reselect your genetic destiny (epigenetics) and why you are not only the product of your genes, but can control their expression
- The neuro-shaman, the new shaman for modern times
- How to grow a new body that ages and dies differently
- The 4/4/4 breathing exercise to consciously direct your breath and bridge consciousness and the unconscious to calm your nervous system and enter a healing state
Module 5: Techniques for Extracting Negative Energies From Your Luminous Energy Field (Pre-recorded)(April 20)
Not all the energies we experience within us belong to us. Shamans understand that there are intrusive energies that come from other people, both in the present and past.
This week, you’ll learn how intrusive energies primarily come from those we are close to in the form of anger, jealousy, or resentment — and techniques for removing these toxic energies from the Luminous Energy Field.
Alberto will share why the Luminous Energy Field doesn’t recognize these harmful energies as foreign and thus allows them to penetrate your field and embed themselves in your body…
… and how shamanic healers go into the field like psychic surgeons to find these negative energies, pull them out, and fill the areas with light.
This week, you’ll discover:
- What intrusive entities are and why they become attached to you
- How shamans extract intrusive energies by finding and cutting energetic cords, intentional harmful energies, and negative past life energies in the energetic body and in spaces
- How intrusive energies become embedded in your body, how they can manifest in physical disease, and which tools shamans use to extract them
- How rattles, swords, and crystals are used in extractions
- A fire ceremony to release negative energies (for this, please bring a candle and a small wooden stick)
Module 6: Shamanic Initiations to Connect With the Earth & a Lineage of Healers Forward & Backward in Time to Launch Your Healing Journey (Pre-recorded)(April 27)
Shamanic traditions are lineage-based, connecting to a line of medicine men and women that go back to the very beginning of time.
This week, you’ll explore how you can connect to shamans in the past and also connect to and receive the initiations of shamans to come.
The first level of shamanic initiation you’ll receive from Alberto awakens your own healing power and abilities, launching you on a journey of healing yourself and then the world around you.
The second initiation connects you to a lineage of men and women dedicated to the stewardship of the earth, the Earthkeepers.
This week, you’ll:
- Receive the Rite of the Pampamesayok, connecting you to a lineage of healers
- Learn the Shaman’s Agreement
- Receive the Earthkeepers Rite and accept stewardship for all life on Earth
- Recognize what it means to live in a state of ayni, or right relationship
Module 7: How to Get Out of This World Alive — Explore the Doorways Beyond Physical Existence to Ease Your Fear of Death (May 4)
The shamans discovered that life does not end when we die, but that death is simply a doorway beyond our physical existence.
The great initiations of the shamanic tradition are a symbolic encounter with death and a journey to the beyond to learn the way ourselves.
This week, you’ll hear about the five realms of the Upper World that mirror our physical world, and visit them during a guided shamanic journey.
The first world is that of the stone people, a mineral kingdom that is not a very desirable place for humans.
The second is the world of the plant people, full of color and light. This is a perfectly pleasant place for a plant, but not for a human.
Alberto will also share the different stages we go through after the physical body dies.
During this final class, you’ll:
- Learn how and why the shamans mapped the territories beyond death
- Discover the different stages we go through after the physical body dies — the territories of the stone/mineral people, plant people, animal kingdom, ancestral kingdom, and the realm of our becoming
- Recognize what you can do now to support this transition of yourself and others
- Discern why selfless service is an important part of your evolution
- Experience a guided shamanic journey into the 5 realms of the Upper World

About Dr. Alberto Villoldo
By his mid-20s, Alberto Villoldo was the youngest clinical professor at San Francisco State University. He was directing the Biological Self-Regulation Laboratory, investigating how energy medicine could change the chemistry of the brain. One day in his laboratory, Alberto realized that he was looking out of the wrong end of the microscope. He needed to find a system larger than the neural networks of the brain. Many others were already studying the hardware; Alberto wanted to learn to program the mind to create psychosomatic health.
Anthropological stories hinted that there were people around the globe who claimed to know such things, including the few remaining “shamans” in today’s modern world. So 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, and 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 Andes and Amazon were a number of sages or “Earthkeepers” 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 lake at the 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 its ability to heal and transform us, to free us from the temporal chains that keep us fettered to illness, old age, and disease.
