Learn how ancient

shamanic practices
and modern neuroscience
can help you transform
yourself, launch a
successful career,
and live a life you love.

“The Light Body School is the

Harvard of Neo-Shamanism.”
–Harper’s Bazaar


As a medical anthropologist, I traveled the Amazon Rainforest and the high Andes
for more than 25 years to work with Native American shamans. In my journeys I
discovered how these healers change the energy matrix of the body to create the
conditions for health, so that disease does not manifest in the body.

They are masters of the art of prevention, and they learned the secrets to switching
on the longevity genes inside every cell.

Today you can learn the shaman’s extraordinary tools for healing from the comfort
of your own home! Our program is designed for the person dedicated to their
personal growth and committed to creating health and meaning in the world.

You will learn the ancient shamanic healing practices and how they intertwine
with the most recent discoveries in neuroscience—and you will learn to use these
millenary tools to create a new life and successful new career for yourself.

At the Light Body School, we are committed to your future as an Energy Medicine
Practitioner and Health Coach.


Alberto Villoldo, Ph.D.


“The luminous energy field contains a blueprint of how you will heal, how you
will age, and how you might die… Energy medicine creates the conditions for
health, so that disease goes away, or never happens.”
