Energy Medicine Can Be Effective for Restoring Mind, Body Balance

Coconut Grove, FL -- (SBWIRE) -- 08/06/2018 -- With more and more people searching for natural approaches to achieving and maintaining optimal health, Alberto Villoldo, Ph. D., a psychologist and medical anthropologist, is currently opening enrollment for energy medicine training courses offered by The Four Winds Society's Light Body School.

"I spent many months canoeing to villages that had seldom seen a white man, and wherever I went, I found there was no cancer, dementia, or heart disease, even among the elders of the communities," said Dr. Villoldo, describing his adventure in the Amazon Rainforest. "Clearly, the indigenous people of the area knew something about health that we westerners didn't know. What was their secret?" This observation sparked his journey towards uncovering the secrets of energy medicine.

For those who haven't heard about it, Shamanic Energy Medicine is based on Shamanism, which is a practice that originated thousands of years ago. The word derives from šaman, which is a Manchu-Tungus word meaning "the one who knows." The shamans are regarded as healers, spiritual guides, teachers, and scholars. Shamans practiced shamanism because they believed that the material world Is nothing but a mere expression of a subtler energetic realm which we interact with all the time.

The Four Winds Society was created with shamanic wisdom at its heart, educating and passing on energy medicine ways to those willing to break free from their past limiting mindset to embrace the hidden secrets of the energetic realm. By mastering this wisdom, one can apply this modality to heal and bring greater balance to their body and soul. It is by this means that The Four Winds facilitates the process of profound self-discovery and transformation. No matter where you stand in life, or what profession you engage in, the wisdom of the shamanic tradition as disseminated by The Four Winds Society is available for you.

Led by Dr. Alberto Villoldo and Marcela Lobos M.A., the Four Winds Society's Light Body School has successfully mentored over 10,000 students and graduates from all walks of life around the world, helping them achieve their greater freedom and well-being.

The residential training takes place yearly in three campuses: Los Lobos Sanctuary in Olmué Chile, Joshua Tree Retreat Center in California, USA, and Johanthan Seminarhotel in Chieming Hart, Germany. Each one of these facilities provides the same training courses.

The Light Body School also offers a six-month online training with the same comprehensive skills as the residential program, but with the flexibility online programs provide.

What's in the program?

The Light Body School's training program involves 300 hours of coursework in different aspects of energy medicine and is taught by Four Winds Senior Faculty members, Marcela Lobos and Alberto Villoldo. The program is recognized worldwide as the Gold Standard in shamanic education and is known as the highest quality training available for aspiring energy medicine practitioners.

The courses teach students healing techniques that allow them to control positive and negative energy flow through their bodies, and provides Rites and Initiations that connect them with the spiritual world.
