In this video from the Palm Springs Prophets Conference earlier this year, Alberto Villoldo talks about his decision as an anthropology student in the jungle to throw away his notebooks and tape recorder and become a student of a shaman–setting him on a journey towards understanding the distinction between western and shamanic mythology–the former being based on a division and ownership of land, and the latter based on the division of time. He talks about the need for those in the Western world to repair our brains so that we can download information from the cosmic matrix and shed the limiting beliefs that no longer serve us, and to celebrate the fact that "2012 is happening today".
Alberto Villoldo, PhD is one of the leading shamanic teachers in the world today. His new book Power Up Your Brain: The Neuroscience of Enlightenment, bridges the world of science and Spirit.· He is host of the upcoming Evolver Intensives series, "Answering the Call to Your Shamanic Initiaton" in which he will show us how to pass through the seven great initiations all of us must undergo.· The course includes an exclusive lecture by Alberto, and a series of in-depth, one-on-one conversations between Alberto and five of the world's leading experts on shamanic initiation: John Perkins, Sandra Ingerman, Marcela Lobos, CJ Castaneda, R Alen (a nagual), and Linda Fitch. They will talk about the relevance of shamanic initiation for life today, and the role that plant medicine can play in this process. Each guest will discuss how they fought and responded to their calling, and the tests and challenges they had to face during their own initiations.
The course starts on July 24th. Please click here for more information:
