Overview

Modern life has disrupted the intricate relationship between our minds and bodies. When we feel a little off, we may try to fix ourselves with self-help books. When we have cancer, we go to an oncologist. When we need help understanding our family dynamics, we go to a psychologist. We see our ailments as separate from one another. Our fragmented approach to health means we often treat the symptoms of our ailments rather than their causes.

Psychologist and medical anthropologist Alberto Villoldo spent many months with Amazonian and Andean shamans learning their ancient practices for wellness: One Spirit medicine. One Spirit medicine recognizes the body as a system – not just a collection of parts. Our bodies are continually regenerating themselves. Villoldo passes on the shamans' principles and practices that allow us to tap into this ability and enhance it.

Shamanic teachings can show you how you can clear your mind, detoxify your gut, and reconnect with the spirit of the universe.
