One Spirit Medicine: Ancient Ways to Ultimate Wellness

Today our minds, our emotions, our relationships, and our bodies are out of kilter. We know it, but we tend to ignore it until something brings us up short—a worrying diagnosis, a broken relationship, or simply an inability to function harmoniously in everyday life. When things are a little off, we read a self-help book. When they’re really bad, we bring in oncologists to address cancer, neurologists to repair the brain, psychologists to help us understand our family of origin. But this fragmented approach to health is merely a stopgap. To truly heal, we need to return to the original recipe for wellness discovered by shamans millennia ago: One Spirit Medicine.
Through One Spirit Medicine, the shamans found that they could grow a new body that allowed them to live in extraordinary health. They learned how to switch off the “death clock” inside every cell, and turn on the “immortality” genes that reside in password-protected regions of our DNA. Cancer, dementia, and heart disease were rare. The shamans of old were truly masters of prevention.
Drawing on more than 25 years of experience as a medical anthropologist—as well as his own journey back from the edge of death—acclaimed shamanic teacher Alberto Villoldo shows you how to detoxify the brain and gut with superfoods, use techniques for working with our luminous energy fields to heal your body, and follow the ancient path of the medicine wheel to shed disempowering stories from the past and pave the way for rebirth.
Using the principles and practices in this book, you can feel better in a few days, begin to clear your mind and heal your brain in a week, and in six weeks be on your way to a new body—one that heals rapidly, retains its youthful vitality, and keeps you connected to Spirit, to the earth, and to a renewed sense of purpose in your life.

    neo ‘shaman’ new tree ants The following is my opinion on this book. I have spent a lot of time with medicine people in North and South America in ceremony. I know the real medicine people from the New Agers. The transmission of original and authentic traditions is very important to me.The author is a sincere person who has studied with native peoples and shamans of different cultures. He is a prolific author and founder of the Four Winds Society and the training programs it offers. The Munay-Ki ceremonies/rites that are taught there are partially based on a diverse set of rites from a subset of Q’ero medicine people of the Andes. The authors ability to have conveyed, with adaptation, information from his indigenous teachers, is generally an important contribution to modern understanding of ancient ways.This books synthesis, and title, revolves around a concept called ‘One Spirit Medicine’. Not to be confused with by Hank Wesselman or by Lomakayu. Both of these other titles may also be of interest.’One Spirit Medicine’ claims to convey the ‘ancient’ teachings from the ‘shamans’ and to integrate this with nutritional research from modern medicine. The book wants you to know that the ‘shamans’ have the superior knowledge, and their ancient way of ‘One Spirit Medicine’, is ultimately superior to modern medicine. These two approaches, the modern and the ancient, are sometimes held in harmony. But more often the books tone is that allopathic medicine is inferior. The book also claims very early that its content and method is based on shamanic process, especially the vision quest. But during the nutritional part of the book it’s very hard to feel much connection to shamanic process.The first part of the book starts with an overview of this fantastique program of ‘One Spirit Medicine’ and some background on shamanism and spirit. If you have watched Yoda talking about the force in Star Wars, or the Navi people from Pandora talking about Ewa, you’ve got the same vibe. If you grove on this way of looking at the world then you should check out videos from the Bioneers. Folks like Paul Stamets and Jeremy Narby () are all over this.I think the core vision of the book is not adequately described before getting into the nutritional details. What should have been said is that ‘One Spirit Medicine’ is the internal alignment of your metabolic processes with the larger luminous field manifesting upon and within the biosphere. If you can imagine and tap into that noosphere of light, and then imagine aligning your lifestyle with that, starting from your food, then you bring your entire biology into harmony with light, that you can surf the great transformation into a luminuous civilization that is forming right now. This feels like the core message to me. But it also feels like the text often leads away from this vision by spouting too many facts and left-brain analysis which is the pathology of western civilization. The core message is buried by facts when more visionary metaphor and poetry, to bring the right-brain into play, and both hemispheres into balance, is missing for much of the book. This visionary aspect I am bringing up is a core theme within the authors work, especially around the ‘Munay-Ki’ teachings.”To the shamans, eternity is available to anyone who upgrades their brain and grows a new, improved body through One Spirit Medicine.”That sentence is a hologram to the entire book and gives you a clear idea of the books synthesis. The hyperbole around ‘One Spirit Medicine’ is as deep as it is frequent. You would have to keep your wits about you to make it through this book holding many disparate concepts together. Ultimately it does not matter if such claims around brain upgrades and new bodies is based on fact or anything any shaman or medicine person ever originally said or taught.The books use of the word ‘shaman’ (a Siberian/Mongolian word only truly applicable in that part of the world), is very general. This phrase is also nebulous to anyone who has been in ceremonies with medicine people, especially in Peru and Bolivia. In South America there are specific disciplines for medicine people like a paqo, altomesayok, ayahuascero, tabaquero, huachumero, etc. Hard-core medicine people and healers in the Americas, specialists, do not typically go around using a general term like ‘shaman’. Outside of Siberia and Mongolia, the claim ‘I am a shaman’ is not common among medicine people. This term shaman is being used colloquially in the West as a blanket term for a spiritual person typically in the Harner/Ingerman lines,…
