"A step-by-step manual set against a bewitching backdrop of hair-raising, Castaneda-esque tales... Villoldo's writing is smart, lucid and lyrical" New Age

About the Author

Alberto Villoldo, Ph.D., was born in Cuba, where he was exposed to Afro-Indian healing traditions at an early age. While pursuing his doctorial studies in psychology and medical anthropology, he travelled throughout the Amazon and the Andes, researching Native American healing techniques. He later directed the Biological Self-Regulation Laboratory at San Francisco State University, where he investigated mind-body medicine and the neuro-physiology of healing. He founded and directs the Energy Medicine School at the Four Winds Society, and teaches energy medicine to thousands of nurses and physicians, psychotherapists and lay persons every year. He is an internationally recognized leader in the field of alternative medicine and shamanic studies, and has written ten other books. He lives in Los Angeles.

Dreaming Your World Into Being: The Shaman's Secrets To Having The Life You Desire Now

This is the book that inspired my initiation in the world of shamanism. Alberto has bridged the poetry, beauty, and power of the world of indigenous shamans with the complexity and pragmatism of the modern experience to create the definitive guide for modern shamans.

This is an excellent book about healing and the self. Anyone seeking information and practical knowledge about healing oneself would enjoy the writing of Alberto Villoldo. I had not heard of him, but I will seek out his other books now. He has a clear, easy-to-read writing style. There is so much to learn in this world, and Villoldo shares one more major piece of that world's pie.

Amazing book. Amazing author. I recomend it for those interested in this type of healing and work, but not for those that are not interested in it.

A lot of books about shamanism stay at the surface of things, don't go into details about the how's and what's.

This book is exceptional because it dares to take you below the surface and provides real information on what's and how-to's.

Absolutely recommended!
