In a way, and perhaps logically so, this book is much more condensed than any of the former books by the author. Every sentence, and every word counts, and is full of meaning, and you are not going to read this in the same speed as, for example, Shaman, Healer, Sage. This indicates perhaps that this book is more conceptual than the earlier books, and that the author has in the meantime created a concise framework for his teaching. To give an example of this density that reminds the highly focused content of theosophical writings, the author writes in the Introduction:
—The Earthkeepers teach that all of creation—the earth, humans, whales, rocks, and even the stars—is made of vibration and light./x
There is another elucidation forwarded by the author about his teaching that I consider extremely important—and that he should perhaps have provided in earlier publications. It’s the fact that the Laika tradition he was initiated in is not to be confounded with mainstream Inka tradition.
All those who know about the Inka tradition are aware of the fact that it was a Sun God cult, what Joseph Campbell came to call a ‘solar culture’ that practiced ruthless slavery, the oppression of the female, violent warfare, torture of prisoners of war, and human sacrifice.
The powerful message of this teaching is that we can overcome our negative individual and collective karma by rejoining the original pattern, through overcoming and healing what the Kahunas call complexes, and what Dr. Villoldo calls imprints in the Luminous Energy Field (LEF).
It is a daring perspective, and I can only admire the courage of the author to forward his wonderful mission in a time of change that perhaps really contains a vortex, an opening for the new to emerge from the old.
The book contains much more than the little window that I opened here in my book review, and perhaps contrary to my other reviews, I restrain myself here. And for good reason. It’s a symbolic act. Discover for yourself, and see what more you can learn from this extraordinary book! I feel unable to convey it.
The narrative is also quite good. Villoldo is a PhD and has not completely escaped the prose deadening effects of graduate education, but you can still tell what he means by what he says, and sometimes you can tell it with pleasure. I think he's going to be my new enthusiasm. This is the second of his books I've read, and the first was terrific, so before I'm through I'll probably read, and perhaps practice, all of them.
