Exploring Shamanic Energy Medicine

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.
