Several years ago, I wrote in my journal, “I want to study with Alberto Villoldo.” At the time, I really had no idea whom Alberto was, or the course of study that he could offer me. I saw his name somewhere, perhaps he was referenced in an article that I may have read. I tucked that journal away and forgot what I wrote that day.... or so I thought.
Two years ago, my life took a fast course in transformation, through the healing of a physical condition requiring major surgery. Soon after I recovered from surgery, I decided to pursue the study of energy medicine, and, big surprise, Alberto’s name showed up again. As I perused the course descriptions offered in his program, Healing the Light Body, I realized that I had been seeking this information for a very long time. After I registered for my first class with Alberto, I decided to clean out some boxes tucked away in a closet, and out popped my old journal. I found that entry stating my desire to study with Alberto, which I had written several years before. So, shamanism chose me, and it has been an incredible adventure.
Some five years ago, I snarled a frustrated comment about someone I loved and a woman used my statement to guide me through an inquiry process. I had such an instant experience of seeing another person in a new, kinder light (and of liking myself a whole lot better) that I hired this woman. She was a life coach. The inquiry process was The Work of Byron Katie.
Katie works from the premise that nothing that happens is inherently stressful. Pain, anger, sadness, frustration — they all come from our thoughts about what’s happening. These thoughts can be questioned.

Consumers drive change. Growing numbers of consumers are saving money by increasing energy efficiency, and paying a reasonable premium to support the transition to sustainable energy sources. As the market for renewable energy grows, more businesses will invest in production. Larger scale production will increase efficiency and reduce costs for even greater numbers of consumers.
