One Spirit Medicine: The Mind of God, the Brain of Man, the Heart of the Shaman

Mar 24 - 26, 2017 Begins in 3 weeks
with Alberto Villoldo

Are you ready to create a life filled with joy, prosperity, and peace? "Shamans from South America learned how to wire the brain for bliss,” Four Winds Society founder Alberto Villoldo writes. “They called it One-Spirit medicine. They discovered that the heart was the passageway between the visible and invisible world. They mastered a path of power and wisdom based on the practice of dreaming the world into being.
“It is simple: You dream your world or settle for the nightmare dreamed by others. You dream health, and disease goes away. You dream peace, and conflict ends.
