Publisher's Summary

Access the gifts of transformation, heal the self, and live in harmony with one another and with the Earth by journeying through the wisdom wheel—a fresh take on the traditional medicine wheel—its archetypes, and its four wisdom challenges.

The teachings of the medicine wheel have existed from the beginning of time. Today, however, we are creating modern paradigms of shamanism while drawing on the sacred traditions of the past. In this book, shamanic practitioner Alberto Villoldo explains that the medicine wheel is also a wisdom wheel: an advanced tool for working toward personal and planetary transformation. By journeying through the wisdom wheel and its four directions—South, West, North, and East—each of which is associated with an archetypal animal and sacred journey, you will be able to access powerful healing energies and step into a new personal and collective destiny.

This audio product contains a PDF with supporting material, and the PDF is available to download.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

I am nobody, but this book is something.

The first half of this book really lays the foundation and truly, deeply connected with me as someone who was also raised Catholic. I started on my journey 20 years ago when I was about 12 years of age, beginning with kundalini meditations, and discovering Carlos Casteneda, of all authors. Although years would pass before I found out Casteneda was a fraud, I began at that age reading everything I could, albeit in secret, about the world's indigenous cultures and their sacred practices. I've had so many books stolen from me by family members claiming demons in my things - it took me a long time to forgive them - but here I am years later a father and husband and I even spent 6.5 years of my life as the thrice-weekly choir director of a Catholic church just 30 minutes north of my old home... all while nurturing my body, mind, and spirit with Shamanism and QiGong.
I've read and been exposed to a lot of garbage, and I mean A LOT... so much so that I've distanced myself from many of the people who would otherwise have encouraged the shamanic path, simply because I knew I needed to work on myself and wasn't wise enough to guide someone who might have been somewhat on the right track but, at least from my perspective, seemed misguided or over-politicized. Instead, I choose for the longest time to keep my beliefs to myself and try to assist my mother and grandparents in opening their hearts to peoples of all cultures through the lens of Catholicism, of which they were familiar, before their eventual passing. Now that I am no longer bound to dancing around their dogma to gain influence, I feel much more open to speak truthfully and without reserve.
I say all these things because there has yet to be another author that has connected to me and my own personal experience like Dr. Alberto Villoldo. His words have ring true to every meditation and experience with the psychedelic plant medicines I've ever been blessed to bear witness to. I'd hate to say that no other author comes close, but I have yet to read them, and honestly don't feel a need to. What I've gained through reading his books and participating in the ceremonies he presents is a much more grounded sense of being.
The pitfalls and blessings he speaks of in this and his other books are very much on point and we would all be wise to open our hearts to it.
Thank you.
