One of the pioneers in the areas of energy healing and shamanism recounts twelve stories of miraculous healings; twelve stories in which, through the use of shamanic energetic techniques, people experience extraordinary physical and emotional healings.
Meet a dancer who could barely walk until a series of sessions with Villoldo, a business woman who is freed from headaches and discovers the benefits of an integrated interior life, and a young woman who confronts her past and recovers from crippling depression. Each of these stories is rooted in Villoldo’s experience as a healer, a traditional mental health professional, and a devotee of indigenous wisdom and lore from around the world.
Villoldo has devoted 25 years of study to the healing practices of the Amazon and Andean shamans. By learning the ancient Shaman wisdoms from Villoldo, you can heal disease, eliminate emotional suffering, and even grow new bodies that age and heal differently. The stories in this book are amazing and inspiring.
“Dr. Alberto Villoldo has done it again by demystifying profound age-old wisdom in 12 stories of personal transformation and growth. A Shaman’s Miraculous Tools for Healing describes how a shaman utilizes energy medicine practices such as illumination, soul retrieval, and extractions to create the proper energetic conditions for health. Read and learn.” —Joe Dispenza, DC, author of New York Times bestseller You Are the Placebo: Making Your Mind Matter and Breaking the Habit Of Being Yourself: How to Lose Your Mind and Create a New One
“In this remarkable book, medical anthropologist Albert Villoldo, PhD, takes readers with him as he journeys into the core of shamanic practices to deliver profound change and healing to clients from different walks of life.

“A Shaman’s Miraculous Tools for Healing is a must-read for novices, professional healers and shamanic practitioners alike. The intimate healing stories grasp the true essence, methods, and effectiveness of the shamanic wisdom our ancestors left us. It paves the way to show us how we can apply it to our modern lives. A rare book where the clients and the shaman share their captivating stories.” —Itzhak Beery, author of The Gift of Shamanism, and Shamanic Transformations, and publisher of shamanportal.org
