World-Renown Healer and Best-Selling Author — Alberto Villoldo, Ph.D.
With Four Shamans from the high Andes for a once in a lifetime 2-hour healing ceremony followed by a Q & A.
Join the Spirituality Mind Body Institute for this rare opportunity to learn from Dr. Alberto Villoldo and four shamans from the high Andes.
This talk will focus on understanding how basic psychological processes, including psychotherapy and the notion of the psyche, vary across cultures. The talk will explore the concept of the sacred from Tibetan, Native American, and the early Greek perspectives, and examine psychotherapy as ‘sacred initiation.’
